Very basic rooms with not the best heating, but amazing service. The owner drive me to petra each day and told me all about the best things to see. He is super well connected and arranges dinners, hammam visits, and even was able to book me a half-price taxi to wadi rum with a driver who was heading in that... More

I really enjoyed my time at this hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and very friendly. The room was very nice, and I also enjoyed a nice dinner at the hotel. I would definitely stay here again! My only complaint would be that the hotel is up a big hill from Petra, and after a long day of walking you... More

I've already reviewed Nasser and the Petra Gate Hotel on Booking, but I want to do it here as well. I recommend this hostel! The price is unbeatable, and although the lodgings are not luxurious, I would choose to stay there again. I felt cared for. Dinner was prepared every night and served communally, and was excellent. Any time I... More

Had a fantastic time staying at Petra gate hostel. Very hospital, excellent breakfast and clean rooms. Look forward to coming back. Close to petra, 15 Mins walk to gate and close to city center. Nageb made a fantastic breakfast and even packed us a delicious lunch for the day at Petra

Upon our arrival at Petra Gate, the owner was very welcoming and friendly. We went to see Petra at night, and he offered us a free lift down. The day we stayed there was expected to be very cold, they offered us an extra space heater, without us asking for one, and they asked whether we needed anything. The room... More

I stayed there for one night but I was almost convinced to stay longer just for how I was being treated. The hotel is clean and even thought it was freezing in the city, they provided with good heating, blankets and a great shower. The accomodations were to my expectation but the surprise was the hosts. They were so friendly... More

Initially, Nasser and his family seemed nice, however, they quickly turn against you if you have any issue with their hotel. You can tell from other negative reviews on this site that they readily trash talk you if you didn't have a good experience. Nasser accommodated a late arrival and helped arrange transport for me from the airport, which was... More

The staff is incredible sweet, they're helpfull and willing to do a lot to make you happy. They give good tips and advice about where to go and how much to pay everywhere so you don't get ripped off. The service is the strong point, it's not a luxery hotel but great for backpackers Or people who want to visit... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights, the owner made us feel really welcome and we had a great time at Petra. Good: affordable, comfortable, hot showers, local knowledge, packed lunches and great service. Bad: a little run-down and dated, breakfast was a cheap but not great. Overall: great value for money and would definitely recommend for the... More

The hotel was dirty, sheets not changed, dirty towels, toilet not functioning properly, furniture broken and it was extremely cold - heating not working at all at ~0 degrees Celsius. We asked insistently for some heating device and have received one working at 1/3 capacity - we slept one night wearing all our winter clothes. The breakfast components looked expired.... More
