Bedouin village

Although I have posted a question on the Jordan forum about staying in Wadi Rum, I have just been told it might be possible to stay in the Bedouin Village at Petra. Can anyone confirm whether is true and, if so how do I arrange it?

Bedouin Village is the village that the government initially built when they decided to remove everyone from inside Petra, so the people who used to live in the caves now live in Um Sayhoun (Bedouin Village). There are no hotels there, just normal houses. I'm sure you can get a dozen of invitations when you walk in Petra to stay with one of the locals or even in the caves, personally I would be careful with that since it's pretty much impossible to tell the (many) good people from the (few) bad ... Enjoy your time in Jordan !

To my knowledge, it is not allowed to house a foreign tourist like that. I once had the offer in Umm Qais but it was turned down by the Tourist Police for the sake of my security.
