Pretty grim hotel. Electricity gets cut off every so often to save money. Bedding is poor, room is poor, but the staff are fantastic. Plenty to do in the surrounding area, visiting the old Romantic ruins and Museums. Excellent money for value food and other items in Downtown Amman.

The only positive thing was the location. The rest of it a complete failure! To start with, the entire hostel is filled with a disgusting smell of ciggaretts/tobbaco which can cause a very unpleasant feeling for non-smokers. The hostel is freezing! Not enough bedding, and if so - it is super smelly and used and felt really disgusted to sleep... More

Even for the small price this 'hostel' fails to meet the standards required for basic accommodation. Entire hostel resembles a comdemed building, with odd and mildly threatening notices everywhere 'educating' patrons in toilet, shower and fridge etiquette! Rooms and toilets/showers are incredibly basic with minimal investment in bedding and facilities. WiFi barely works. Good central location. I've been backpacking around... More

My stay at the Mansour has been fantastic, the staff are friendly and helpful which, when arriving as a solo female traveler in a new country, is just what you need! Many tips about potential scams you may encounter and useful travel advice, and most importantly, tea! While all reviews are true, the accommodation, you get what you pay for,... More

I found this hostel to be one of the cheapest places in Jordan. On my way from the bus station the taxi driver, of course, tried to turn me over to another hostel for double the price lying about the price of the Mansour. I stayed in a simple single room for about 6 JED. The rooms were clean and... More

You get what you pay for. The place is little bit torn apart. Wooden doors are half broken, rooms aren't really that clean, and showers aren't that nice. There are only certain times when you can use hot water. But having said that, it's perfectly ok place to stay. I don't think someone who's used to staying in backpackers spot... More

this is a very cheap hotel and what you get is what you pay for.... it is a good hotel for smokers as you are allowed to smoke everywhere... if you need help arranging for trips to the dead sea, aqaba, petra, wadi rumi or other places, the owner is quite willing to help... but it never hurts to learn...

I have stayed at hundreds of hostels throughout the world, and this is the worst one. It is cheap. Very cheap. If you are a single woman travelling on your own, i wouldn't stay here. Stay at the Tower. It is excellent. It is a smoking place. If you're not a smoker, don't stay here. I am, so i was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Once upon a time there was an old Arabic school; it has been renovated and redecorated to become, the Monsour Hostel a backpackers paradise in downtown Amman. Under new management, there is a completely new outlook of understanding and focus that has been missing in Amman; a home away from home for the most important tourist visiting Jordan-the backpacker. This is the place where you can hang your hat, put your feet up and exchange stories with other travelers you will meet while you sip Arabic tea and coffee. ... more   less
