  • First - bring ear plugs and a eye cover - the call to prayer at 4:30am is bound to wake you up, and the sunshine in the morning is, too. This is not within control of management. Management aims to please, and they work very hard at that. I was safe, in a clean bed and room and slept like a baby! (I always bring ear plugs and eye cover). This is not the Ritz - nor should you expect such - this is a safe, clean, aged hostel that fits my budget perfectly. Petra is only a 20 minute or 1 dinar cab.

  • Orient Gate Hotel although it is close to the city center and the location is alright the staff there is horrible. The man in charge tried to charge us the next day once again eventhough we had paid him the night before. Also the room was not very clean and we didn't have enough blankets.
