    My stay at Sydney Hotel was one of my best hostel stay ever. Value for money is excellent. Prices are generally low for such a well located and clean place. However, the best part is the staff. Bassam has been incredibly helpful throughout my whole stay. He recommended and arranged existing adventures for me. He was also available to offer help for any query I had and most times he went out of his way to ensure I got the best deals for the experiences. I highly recommend this Sydney Hotel.

    A budget, cozy hotel. Not a hostel. Private was stunning, and the breakfast was a welcomed bonus. The location was comfy for Rainbow Street and Downtown cravers.

    I have nothing but praises for Sydney Hotel. What more can I say, absolutely good value for money (I was pleasantly surprised to find how comfortable my room was with private bathroom for a small budget) The receptionist, especially Bassam was absolutely fantastic, and very helpful. The entire hotel is immaculately clean and tidy. I would definitely stay here again if or when I come back to Amman.

    Well located for checking out the main sites in Amman, good little breakfast, friendly, helpful staff. We had a private room in the front of the hotel that was a little noisy from rush hour traffic. Good place to meet other travelers. I would stay again.

    Clean room, safe location as with the rest of the places I visited in Jordan. The night manager was the highlight of the place! He is a top guy with great advice.

    I liked the stay at Sydney hotel. The staff is helpful, answers all queries. Everything is walking from the hostel. They have few spots for parking for free which is also good. Downtown and good restaurants are close to the hotel. Recommended to stay here.

    I stayed for 3 nights. Its a very nice hostel but I didn’t have a nice experience. First of all I think we get the worse private room there, the walls were damp, the room was next to two bathrooms so sometimes the smell and noises were unpleasant and the pictures associated with the drescription of the room is not accurate. The staff is very nice and the breakfast is amazing And everything very clean

    Great location. Nice hostel, big, clean, warm and with nice common areas. It could be a great hostel but no vibes and the staff should be improve the service! We asked info to reach Jerash by public buses and the receptionist offered us the tour (13 jod por person) and no tips to go by ourselves. We went by taxi and public buses and we spent 9 jod less (por person). Thanks to the morning receptionist who booked an uber for us! Anyway it’s good and cheap!
