    Staying here was a pleasure! The place was very close to great food and very close to Rainbow Street. Thank you, Claudia, for the amazing hospitality! The Syndey Hotel is well worth the money.

    In the middle of that concrete jungle that Amman is, they have a cozy backyard where we could gather together. The staffs help me to find a way to go to the Dead Sea, since the public transportation doesn’t go there anymore.

    I stayed for 2 nights in a single room. The hostel was clean and comfortable. It’s in a central location but offers respite from the hubbub. The staff were polite and efficient and the breakfast was good. A nice place to stay.

    I’m sure I’m butchering the name but Naceme (the night guy) was welcoming on my arrival and extremely helpful. It’s not too far walk to main sites and my room was really clean and cozy. The tv had only one channel but not an issue at all, and my AC was AMAZING with the heat. Free breakfast light but a plus. The atmosphere was more like a hotel which is fine, I don’t like rowdy travelers anyhow but the front desk are very attentive which boosted those points. I felt safe and have no complaints!

    The place was ok, but I know it’s apart of the culture I guess, but trying to scam someone out of money for a trip is annoying. If someone says no thank you don’t try to push the offer on them over and over and say “It’s what’s best for you” because it’s not.

    Not the nicest place - I stayed at Nomad's hostel down the road before staying here, and Nomad's is much nicer. The beds are fine but the place is really old on the inside. Nothing to write home about.
