This hostel is quite bad! the cleaning ladies never actually "clean", and the hostel is extremely dirty. Especially the showers! it is REALLY REALLY dirty! The showers are grey of dirt! It was quite difficult for me going to shower because I didn't want to get dirtier! The rooms are dirty and old, gloomy and quite dark! It was really...

We stayed here for a six days during our trip to Amman before we head south to Petra and then to Israel. Location is definitely the strong point for this place. Its right in downtown, so it allows us to stroll around markets and look for cheap eats after we finish with the day trips. Plus the staff are pretty...

I stayed here for 4 days during a backpacking trip before a journey to Iran. I found the hotel from lonely planet book that I bought before the trip. Generally, what I need was only a room to put my bag, having shower, and rest. Because most of the time I was away visiting tourist spots around Amman; roman amphitheater,...

This is a backpacker hotel, so do not expect luxury. But it is very conveniently located, the staff is helpful and efficient and the breakfast is OK. If you are going to Madaba they have a hotel there for the same price, transport included, which is a really fantastic deal.

The rooms where dirty and the showers and toilets where even worse, they overcharged me the first night, probably they gave some money to the cab driver who drove me there.

Location is great- down town Amman (Ballad) Staff try thier best to help you. WiFi was poor, not until 4AM which I have able to access Internet- seems like no one is using by that time. Room was way bellow my expectation, it was old and looks dirty and aircondition cannot keep the room cold. Good thing is the bed...

Great location, you can walk to the roman theatre and citedal. Hotel very basic and not that clean. Some staff at reception were really helpful and others not so much. I couldn't book any tours with them as there were never enough people, which probably worked out better in the long run as its much cheaper going with local buses.

Rooms are quite filthy and musty. Shower was disgusting and the linens and towel (threadbare) were absolutely gross. Inexpensive but you get what you pay for, or don't pay for in this case. I like basic and cheap, but I still want clean.

I don't understand why Lonely Planet and booking.com can reccomend this place. The hotel is dirty, hot and not so cheap. I am a budget traveller and i have seen lots of cheap places, but 20 euros for a fan-room is too much. Breakfast is really poor. I can reccomend Jordan Tower hotel, same prices but a/c, good breakfast and...

I have stayed here twice (July 2010 and July 2011 - I forgot to write a review, and this website won't let me go back that far), and I would stay here again. It is not luxurious, but the staff are very nice and helpful, there is free internet in the lobby if you have a laptop. The rooms are...
