    Room 17 was great! Very close to the airport and very close to a busy street. 2 dinar for a cab to the bus station. They offer scuba and snorkeling as well! Very welcoming and a great rooftop hangout spot. We had a twin private, and we had a shared bathroom, kitchenette and living room with another twin room and drinking water was available through a filtered tap. Lovely space, lovely people!

    Ismael is one of the best host i have ever had in all my years of traveling! It was a very nice experience having met him and staying at his place. Without a doubt he is very friendly and always is willing to help with scuba tours, renting cars and even making you breakfast. I definitely recommend and would stay with him again.

    Great place to stay, the staff are extremely friendly! Ismail is a super host that gave us recommendations and linked us up with the right people too! The facilities are really nice, with air conditioning in the private rooms.

    The staff at the hostel are great and very welcoming. The hostel is about 30 to 40 minute walk to the beach/downtown and 30 mins from Jett Bus station. It is inside a small apartment building in a neighbourhood, it’s old and basic but clean. I booked the dorm but they gave me a private room which was great, it is basically a 2 bedroom apartment you share with another guests that has the other bedroom. The air conditioning is great and wifi is fast.

    We had a very good time staying at Ismails! Especially the communication before and during our stay, as well as his hospitality made us feel very comfortable. As we were stuck in traffic from Amman to Aqaba he waited for us to get to the hostel safely and welcomed us even after check-in time.

    Very Good

    The hostel is in a nice neighborhood, it seems safe. It is maybe too long for walking distance to the centrum. We have some ambivalent opinions about the host. He seems nice but when we asked questions he seemed to not care. In our booking it said breakfast was included, but when we asked what time is breakfast, he said there is not breakfast (no excuse for make mistakes for adding breakfast?). The kitchen or wc in our floor was smelly. But else we want to compliment him for the cleanliness.
