Liked: The staff speaks English perfectly and answer any question you can have. The breakfast is early in the morning so no matter if you have to take a bus, you can have breakfaste before. It´s near a shop, restaurants, places to change money...etc

Disliked: It´s a bit far from Petr Visitor Center

Liked: Gail is amazing and makes the hostel really feel like a home more than just a place to stay. She will help you with anything that you need to plan or information that you need for the visit. Overall a great place with great vibes and a good deal for the money :)

Disliked: The location is about a 20 minute downhill walk from Petra so that can get a little tiring if you do it more than once a day.

Liked: Gail, the lady the owns the hotel is extremely helpful and managed to help us get tickets in advance to Petra at night as well as when we had a time crunch to catch our bus which saved us! Thank you :) Breakfast is included which is always nice and there are hot showers during designated hours during the day which is no problem. Easy to find, and a short 10-15 minute downhill walk to Petra (you might want to consider taking a cheap taxi back to the hotel after a long day at Petra, though!)

Customer review

13 April 2010

Liked: Really friendly & helpful staff and wifi in the rooms (only 2 dinars for your whole stay) was a real bonus. Loved the free tea, thanks guys :) This really is a backpackers though and not a hotel as the name suggests; rooms are very basic (think clean 1*) and our 'ensuite bathroom' was a tiny cupboard really, with a shower head over the toilet. The location is good (right on the main roundabout) but extremely noisy and we were kept awake on both nights of our stay due to excessive street noise, which unfortunately coloured our view of Petra :( Breakfast was okay but very basic. For the price though, it's all good. ps. Be aware that Saba'a is actually quite a hike away from the entrance to the old city and while walking downhill 15minutes to get there is okay, walking uphill 15+ minutes after already trekking kilometres through Petra in the heat is not that do-able...but taxis are between 1-2 dinar to get back to the hotel if you're willing to haggle.
