Property Description

Rafiki Hostel is a recently opened hostel with a refreshing concept; Rafiki’s built by young back-packers for fellow back-packers. We tried to put everything we fantasized about during our trips into one facility. We offer a variety of amenities to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible. We provide complimentary high-speed internet access.

Here we know that location matters, a day started with an amazing view is a game changer. Isn’t that the whole point of roaming the earth? Therefore, Rafiki’s located 1.1 km from Petra; close enough to everything our guests would need, at the same time providing enough distance from the city’s noises. Thus guaranteeing a timeless dive into beautiful panoramas where Desert Mountains collide with sunset.

We are also practical and we value comfort; our rooms are well groomed and equipped with private bathrooms, we provide breakfast according to our guest needs. Also, we have an in-house restaurant with one and one goal only; is to give our guests the culinary dimension of a Petra stay.
Wait we are not done yet! Our Rafiki will includes very soon a garden, a farm, tea room, gym, rooftop and spa stay tuned.

    Totally recommendable! I loved my stay there, the staff is nice and helps with everything you need. You got the feeling that the owner personally cares a lot about everything, especially the guests. He will try to make your stay as comfy as possible. ❤ The entrance to Petra is like 20 minutes walking away, the city centre is nearby. Great rooftop and stuff going on in the hostel. Enjoy your stay! 🤗

    Good value for money, especially buffet dinner. Nice atmosphere with plenty going on. Top floor is fabulous for chilling and admiring the view. I LOVED the location, close enough to the Petra entrance but still at the heart of the Wadi Musa shops and restaurants. Very helpful staff. Only issues were no locks on the room doors, not quite enough toilets for everyone (had to wait a long time to use it sometimes) and bathrooms could have been cleaner. Filtered water available would be good.

    Good place to stay if you're on a budget. Was expecting the facilities to be worse after reading the reviews but got pleasently suprised. It's nothing fancy but was definitely usable. Hot water is not 100% reliable. Didn't have any food at the hostel, so cannot judge that. The city itself is quite pricy though.

    Walking distance to Petra (although the hill is a battle after a long day of walking!). Dinner was great value for money. Staff very helpful.

    It was okay.. our only problem was that there was a rule that there’s only hot shower from 5:30-8:30. We arrived the hostel from the Dead Sea at 8:30, and we were told we could only take cold showers (which we did). Then we woke up at 5 to get to the Petra at 6 (so we didn’t have time to take a shower). That day we finished the Petra at 6-7 so we had to rush to the hostel and to take a shower before the deadline (we were 5 people so it took time. It wasn’t bad, but not amazing either...

    I didn't stay that much at this hostel. Only stayed for 1 night, though. Hostel room is bit clumsy, dorm beds shakes (even if i breath), food wasn't that good. But the staff was good.

    Amazing social areas in the hostel, with brilliant rooftop area. Rooms are very tight (bunks ) and beds have a bit of wobble but worth it for the great price and social spaces

    Not a good experience. Never felt welcome in this place. Had some problems with the payment in the beginning and from then, the staff made us feel like they didn't like us. Every question seemed to much. I think they tried to avoid contact even. We spend as little time as possible in the hostel. Luckily Petra is so great.

    Cold rooms, hot showers only provided at certain hours (never experienced one there). Toilet was broken, had to see other peoples deuces all the time. Moldy, dirty bathroom and bedroom. Biggest problem: NO SECURITY! In one night, multiple electric devices were stolen, the owners response 'oh okay, nothing i can do'. You can't lock your doors, so no safety at all. Staff was shady; pretended to be nice only to stab you in the back whenever possible ('AB', I'm calling you out!). NOT RECOMMENDED!
