I stayed here for 2 nights. Upon arrival, I met 2 girls who also wanted to go to the dead sea and i offered to share my cab with them as it was waiting downstairs. the guy who worked at the time (short, chubby and bald) was very upset at me for "stealing" his business. As he was checking me...

This is a nice hotel/hostel in a very convenient location. They have two dormitories, which I have stayed in for several days. One has the bathroom outside and one has it inside, plus aircon. The dorm with inside bathroom has a door, which is not locking and has a small gap, so I avoided using it, going to the outside...

I stayed in a private room; it's a quite simple room, with TV, bathroom and air conditioner. Breakfast is pretty simple, buy good for the price payed. The hotel has a very good location, near to downtown and rainbow street. Staff is friendly, they help with information about how to get some places in Amman.

Dedicated and most helpful staff. I stayed in an economy single room (fan as appose to a/c) with a clean functional on suite bathroom. Spacious a/c communal area, tasty unpretentious breakfast with wifi throughout. All my expectations were met and exactly what I needed catching my breath before leaving the country.

Nice place to stay and meet other people. Good value for money. All the needs are there don't expect heaven but for that price it is really awesome. You can have a breakfast for 2,5 JOD and the wifi is really ok.

The staff was very courteous, very helpful and kind. But the hotel is very old, the rooms are simply not up to western standards, even when it comes to a hostel. But if you only care about a bed and nice people, then it's fine. Good location

We were four female tourists staying here for one night. We arrived late and left early in the morning. Wifi service was good in our rooms and in the main dining area. Breakfast was basic but there was plenty of it to keep us going. It is essentially hostel but was perfect for what we wanted and was very reasonably...
