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.

    This is a great hostel, staff are friendly, beds are basic bunk beds they are comfortable but no privacy, bathroom is modern and shower is big with hot water. The roof top terrace is a great place to relax, wifi is fast and it’s about a 15/20 minute walk downhill to Petra visitors centre. This place is great for the price and is close to everything in the town. It’s currently in the middle of renovations but once they are finished I think this hostel will be superb!

    Good place to stay for visiting Petra, walking distance from the main gate and good restaurants nearby. Organised transfers to other parts of Jordan, including Wadi Rum, work brilliantly.

    Was a bit far from Petra, an almost direct 100m climb from the visitors center straight up hill. There weren’t local outlets in the rooms, only a shared power strip yet they seemed to be building some sort of pool on the premises. A bit of a Mia prioritization in my opinion. The staff was super nice and it was clean but there weren’t any lockers.

    The hostel is located in a really central location, close to everything and 15min away walking from Petra's entrance. The staff is friendly and there is amn amazing rooftop where you can have shisha and enjoy the view. However, in the dorm where I was living the window was broken and couldn't entirety close, the air-condition didn't work so I had to sleep with 3 blankets for not be frozen. Plus there was not always hot water.

    It was the cheapest option, and ok for a night or two if u just need a place to sleep. Rooms small, one charger only in the middle of the room. The towerbeds shake when u climb up. Bathroom tiny and nothing to put things on. also in the room not much of space but the floor, thats carpet. No key for your room or locker offered. Ok for the price
