One word is missing: we are in a hostel, not in a hotel. You can choose a room with private bathroom and and have a hot shower whenever you like or go for a shared bathroom which is a bit cheaper but much more adventurous. There is no common kitchen, so you'll get basic breakfast ready on your grey plastic... More

I was expecting much more from this hotel, which was the first entry that came up when I googled "Backpacker hotel Amman." First of all, the property is located next to a walled lot filled with rubbish, which is the view I got from the window of the private room I was given. Next, there is only hot water in... More

I arrived at this hotel in the early morning hours because the electricity at my other hotel had gone out due to snow. What I can say is that the hotel is very cheap and is much quieter than hotels in the heart of downtown. It was nice not to hear constant beeping of cars. The boy at the front... More

Very basic single room with shared bathroom, very dark as there was only one small window on top of the room. Quite clean though and good location in a quiet area. Staff wad... More

The rooms were small and crowded. If you don't have a lot of stuff then it's no problem. There are a lot of wild cats that like to roam in the kitchen and common areas. The location is right in the downtown area, which makes it a great base for exploring by foot. The staff was extremely helpful. The internet... More

Nice, well kept hostel. Very good location, close to Citadel and Amphitheater. Easy walk to shopping, restaurants. Staff is very nice, helpful. Dorm rooms are clean, backpacker style. Bathrooms are OK, water pressure sometimes could be better.

I stayed here with a friend in June and it was a nice quiet hostel in a really good location. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean. Previous reviews have complained about about the bathroom, and while it wasn't great, after spending a few weeks in Jordan and Egypt we sooned learned that the condition... More

A clean but basic backpacker style hotel/hostel that is exactly what you would expect for the price. The staff are very friendly and helpful, always assisting with travel and happy to help with anything. The breakfast was basic but due to the great location of the hotel you can very easily go to the fruit and veg market/many excellent street... More
