Upon entering I was greeted amicability by the owner. He had much advice to offer about places to eat, things to do and decent cigarettes to buy. He was also able to talk politics and religion and showed himself as quite intelligent. The other staff however, were slightly lacking in personality and their apathy towards doing any more than was... More

ok i was there back in April 2010 and my recollection of the place was good being a backpackers hostel. The single room I stayed was pretty ordinary but it was a good roof over my head which was what I only needed in Petra. After all, you're going to be out and about. Fact is I was in the... More

Dirty, extremely shabby, unhygienic and thoroughly grotty. Staff smoke in tatty sitting area and play games on computer. No hot water. Don't mind tired hostel, but this was terrible. Just don't go there!

No owner around when we wanted to ask for hot water. Had to clean our toilet before using. The owner was helpful and friendly and did book bus... More

I stayed in a private ensuite. Not worth the money. The toilet had no seat, dirty carpets, no hot water, its cold outside and heater doesn't work. Room with broken closet door. Low water pressure, toilet handle rigged with a rope.

This is a very low price hotel I stayed. I booked for a dorm room for 5JD a nights, but since is low season, end up they give me a single room, which is good, the location is city centre. But the downside is, the speakers is outside the window, so when the 4:30 am call for prayer, you will... More

This place is pretty standard for the price you pay. IF you need a roof over your head with some backpackers for a few nights then this is the place. The food was a plenty and was great to not have to leave to go eat. They were helpful. No issues. When we got home after a full day of... More

Come on people, don't be snobs, it's Petra - enjoy the rustic experience! Mohammad was very good about finding us a great deal to tour Wadi Rum, and stuck to his word. As for Cleanliness and Secutiry - I mean, you're in Petra, don't expect a five star hotel unless you are going to a five-star hotel. But for us... More
