The hostel is well located (5 mins drive (10-15 mins walk) to the actual Petra gate). Very close to money exchange, several supermarkets and restaurants. This made our stay very convenient! We didn't actually park there, Parked the rental car right in front theres space due to low tourist season (summer) but theres also a parking lot provided 2 mins... More

I paid the same amount if not more for this room as my hotel in Amman, yes I know there is less competition here but the difference was shocking. Very basic with dirty bathroom, dodgy electrical fittings and a rather unpleasant smell throughout the hotel. The staff were friendly and accommodating but that was the only good thing.

The room was very basic, but for the price, it is reasonable for having a double room, and not share with 7 others. Shower/washroom is relatively clean, most importantly was hot water. My only complaint is that wifi is not that great (barely any signal in the room), and there was only one plug near the door and no breakfast... More

Clean hostel with friendly, knowledgable staff. Our room was basic with fresh sheets, and a working shower and toilet. Exactly what we wanted and paid for. Quality breakfast provided. Just a word of warning - whilst the hostel is technically within walking distance of the Petra site, it is actually quite far. And there is a lot of walking when... More

He arranged transport from the border to Petra and prebooked tickets to Petra by night, Petra kitchen, a tour guide for Petra, a Turkish bath, transport Jeep tour and overnight at a Bedouin camp and a final day snorkeling in Aqaba. would have been difficult and...

The staff working there is amazing and helpful. The rooms are old but clean, I was sharing a dorm room. The shower is ok but toilet hasn't got a proper door. The breakfast was really good and the same for the dinner. The location is ok as you can get to Petra by walking 30 min or taking a taxi... More

We stayed in that hostel for nights. We decided for the Petra Gate Hostel because of the good reviews we've read. First I want to say that the hostel mananger and the other person who's working there (we haven't seen any more people there) are really helpful and friendly. But besides that the hostel itself isn't in its best years.... More

The location is quite decent, still in the center part of the village, however somehow on the border part of it. It's by the main entry road so hard to miss. In the area there are several restaurants. We got checked in quite quickly (14 people) and could see our rooms at once. Our room (4 men) was quite nasty... More

We stayed at the Petra Gate Hotel in March 2016 as a group of 7 from Canada. Our entire trip to Jordan was organized by Nasser at the hotel. A taxi was waiting for us at the Eilat/Aqaba border. We had a delicious, home cooked meal at the hotel on the first night and purchased additional tickets to see Petra... More

This month we stayed for 2 nights at Petra Gate. We were a group travelling together and we had a wonderful time! It is a simple hotel - but the hospitality of Nasser and the others was outstanding. They went above and beyond helping us and making us feel welcome. We felt like part of the family :) The food... More
