As budget hostels go, this was a pretty decent one. Our twin room was fairly basic and the (shared) bathrooms are very small; however, what sets this place apart is the (universal) helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. The guy on the desk helped with our onward travel (and even lent me a pair of sandals to go to the Dead Sea); the other staff were always smiling, offering to help carry bags, and just generally help out. Nothing seemed too much for them, despite the fact it's a very busy place (most people we met in Jordan started out here). Helped organise airport transfers. Can be a little noisy at night as it is in the heart of downtown; but on the other hands, this means its very close to many of Amman's main sights.
