Great for travellers on a budget as the Farah Hotel offers dorms at a great rate where breakfast is included. The receptionists are really great and do anything for you. If enough people are interested the hotel can arrange day trips to the Eastern dessert castles, Jerash or the Dead Sea. Located in a side street in downtown Amman it... More

I cannot recommend Farah Hotel more highly. The location is perfect in the heart of downtown Amman, the staff are wonderful, the rooms are clean, and is removed from the main street, so all the traffic noise people report all over Amman doesn't exist here. It's an amazing value. I recommend Farah Hotel, and I will be back in Farah... More

A really good travellers' base in old Amman. I arrived in the middle of the night and the manager Hani was very welcoming and good source of information. He treated me with fresh humus. Clean and safe place.... Overall a good experience.

For the price point this is a good hostel. It was clean and the staff at the front desk were very helpful. The only issue was the wifi use limit was set very low, which turns off once it has been reached.

I love the farah. When I am in jordan there is no where else I will stay. I look forward to seeing Hani as he is so friendly and helpful. The location is perfect in downtown, close to it all. Love it!

Farah is located on a typically quiet street in the old part of buzzing downtown Amman, walking distance from top sights like the Citadel, the Roman amphitheater, the souq, the new Jordan Museum, Rainbow Street, Jebel Lweibdeh, etc. Shared white taxis to bus stations for trips around Jordan are just down the street. Very close to Arab Bank ATM and... More

I stayed here about 4 years ago. I enjoyed it here so much I ended up staying 9 nights. After travelling through 70 countries over 23 years I have never spent so long in one place. Met some great people here and enjoyed many a drink over the Christmas period with some great people

I first came to stay at Farah in the spring of 2002. Since then I have been revisiting Jordan for more then a decade and always returned to the place. If not to stay, just to say hi to the guys working there and a cup of tea with a fresh mint and always too much sugar. Farah evolved in... More

Really enjoyed our time in Amman. Farah was great for its location and value for money. Staff were friendly and very helpful. In a great part of the city. 24 hour falafels just 1 minute walk away for late night snacks.
