    My stay was amazing , "the check inn was at 3pm and my room was big and clean with a shared bathroom. The whole hostel was well organized by Mohamed tea and coffee was free in the lobby , enough space to sit around or charge devices. Even a small smoking area was outside. The information all around Petra , Food , Tours etc , was a big help . The roof top on the 5th floor offers a kitchen and a stunning view over Wadi Mousa , great place to hang out. Planning to come again, soon

    T is a great guy who runs an amazing hostel very close to Petra. The hostel has two communal areas including a beautiful enclosed top floor with spectacular views of the sunset over Petra. The rooms are typical for a hostel and have nice enough bathrooms. T offers lots of advice to travelers looking for help traveling in Jordan, and also offers different tours around the area. Highly recommended.

    The place is overall nice and is worth the money. There were no lockers so you basically had to 'trust' that no one would steal anything. The owner said that it's because they are renovating (they actually were) but that's still unacceptable for me personally. All areas were always spotless and the front desk was always helpful. The top floor has big glass windows so you get an almost 160 view of most Petra and the sunset/sunrise! It's right in the center of town and everyone is helpful.

    I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The Slovenian girl at reception was so helpful with everything and the vibe was nice and chilled, but not much going on. The location is amazing, only a five minute walk to Petra. I’d definitely recommend staying there

    DON'T BOOK TOUR WITH HOSTEL! We Booked Wadi rum overnight stay with the hostel 50JD. The transport to take us to the tour bus 45mins late! A guy walked up to tour bus only paid 35JD. We ran into him in Aqaba. he told us his overnight stay Included everything in our tour with unlimited water while our camp initially tried to charge us for water. After complain we then get 1 small bottle of water only when having meals. We paid 15JD more we expect at least slightly better not worst!

    Dorms get very hot at night, it was uncomfortable to sleep. They had a fridge you could use but had to ask a staff member to get your stuff out for you. Bathrooms get super wet on the floor and kinda gross but this hostel is still very good value for money. I appreciated the complimentary tea and coffee. The owner is really nice, and the rooftop is a lovely place to watch the sunset. Wifi only worked in downstairs common area for me.

    Don't stay here just cause you think it's cheap. The rooms are stinking from smell from toilet. Toilets are disgusting with no exhaust. The room has a very small window not enough for air circulation. On asking the hostel manager on the condition, he says we are under renovation and have put it up on hostel world which is blatant lie. The room has a ac which is not working cause we are just paying 6JD per bed
