"Gail's hospitality is top notch from having tea when you arrive, to making a sack lunch to take to Petra, and advising on tours to Wadi Rum. She has a great spread in the morning for breakfast."

Liked: Simple, clean for local standards, great location, Gail was always helpful and happy to assist and one of her staff whose name unfortunately escapes me was a gem in helping us fix a flat tire he didn't even want to be reimbursed for. If you are looking for horse or jeep tours of any kind, Mahmoud (who is not affiliated with Saba'a) is your man. Find him at +962 776 918 113. For Wadi Rum camps and other tours, find Ahmad with http://www.desertdreamtours-jordan.com

Disliked: - Though no official curfew is posted anywhere, if you show up after mid night, the front door will be locked and you will need to ring and wake up the owners to get in. - Could use some renovations, but everything is functionable

Liked: I received a personal confirmation email shortly after making my reservation online.

Toilet paper and soap both provided (rare in Middle East budget accommodation)

Disliked: No complaints.

Liked: Excellent location as a base for visiting Petra and other attractions. Easy to find, particularly with the map provided by the hostel. Staff very welcoming, very knowledgeable with any enquiries, and always happy to help. The room we stayed in was clean, and had exactly what we had booked in terms of ensuite etc.. Breakfast was available from 6.30am for those that wanted an early start to visit Petra or to make onward travel collections. Overall a very comfortable and friendly hostel and a good value rate.

Disliked: Taps in the bathroom had lost their thread, so turning water on and off was a bit of a battle - a minor and the only glitch in an otherwise perfect stay.

Liked: Hostel, is close to the main gates of petra,being only a 10-15minute walk all down hill, The English an Jordain Host give the best of both world in terms of advice for travellers who are staying at the Hostel. Room where secure, and hotel loby was always staffed, the free Wifi was also a great plus when looking to plan your next Leg. The Rooms are Basic, but sheets were clean and towel's replaced on reqest.

Disliked: Breakfast was alittle Basid, and could be improved. And would be nice if Hot water was on for alittle longer. (3hrs morning and night only)

Liked: We had a great stay here. The British manager, and the rest of the staff, were really sweet and helpful. It is great value for your money, and even though it is a little rough around the edges, it had a great atmosphere. The roof terrace was great to watch the sun set over the mountains.
