    Description

    Our Hostel is a recently opened with a refreshing concept; the hostel built by us as young back-packers for fellow back-packers. We tried to put everything we fantasized about during our trips into one facility. We offer a variety of amenities to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible. We provide complimentary high-speed internet access.

    Here we know that location matters, a day started with an amazing view is a game changer. Isn’t that the whole point of roaming the earth? Therefore, the hostel located 1.1 km from Petra; close enough to everything our guests would need, at the same time providing enough distance from the city’s noises. Thus guaranteeing a timeless dive into beautiful panoramas where Desert Mountains collide with sunset.

    We are also practical and we value comfort; our rooms are well groomed and equipped with private bathrooms, we provide breakfast according to our guest needs. Also, we have an in-house restaurant with one and one goal only; is to give our guests the culinary dimension of a Petra stay.

    On the fifth floor of the building we have our amazing Rooftop, where we served shisha, soft drinks, smoothie, tea and turkish coffee during the day. We are looking for house-keeping, Rooftop helper and receptionist during the day.
    Our hostel will includes very soon a swimming pool, tea room and a farm.
    Stay tuned =)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The hostel is located 1.1 km to Petra site and is close from all the facilities as restaurant, supermarket, bus station and pharmacy.
    The staff is really nice and they will treat you with respect and will help you to learn everything about the local culture.
    Sunset tour in the nearby Little Petra and Al-Wa`erah castle are scheduled once-twice in a week.
    Go camping in the desert, making fire and taking dinner in bedouin style is our passion, so we surely join together =)

    We usually organize cooking workshop and language lesson as an excuse to spent and shared times all together as a Family.
    Feel as Home is our slogan!

    The food is an important part of the exchange and every day we prepare local food during our hostel dinner.

    We will provide food for the volunteer three times in a day(breakfast,lunch and dinner). However our kitchen is always open and all the volunteer can be free to cook and take the food that are on it!
    By the way, once in a week we made also cooking workshop where we teach and explain how to prepare dishes as Maqluba, Minsaf and other local dishes.
