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!

    Great place! Fantastic view from the chillout area at the top and brilliant staff that are all so so friendly and approachable for any questions/ just general chats! 15/20 min walk to Petra itself but loads of restaurants around and also the hostel will give you a packed breakfast in case you want to go to Petra super early! Really nice atmosphere here and also some extremely cute kittens to play with! Really enjoyed our stay here.

    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.

    Walking distance to Petra, nice view, staff are friendly and helpful. For the rest its pretty bad. Bunk beds are terrible and cheap. No privacy. Beds don’t have their own power so all the phones, etc must be plugged in the middle of the room. Beds also don’t have individual lights so you have to use the room light which wakes everyone. AC doesn’t work. No lockers and no security. This place gets a soft pass because it’s cheap and close to Petra. If that’s what your looking for, it’s fine.

    It’s a great place. But the owners can be a bit mean. But it’s a new hostel and they are trying They have to get in tune with the travelers then it will be the best.

    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
