This place was very reasonably priced for Petra and we had a balcony overlooking the mountains towards Petra, perfect for sunset! The owner was super friendly and organised our Petra by night tour (amazing) and a great dinner afterwards. We spent most our time here sat on the outside seating area overlooking the city and the setting sun over the...

The Orient Gate Hostel is a nice and friendly place to stay. It is quite simple, but offers everything you need. If you are a friendly guest, you will find yourself sitting in the saloon, having a beer and talking to the manager of the hostel. I can recommend this place! Come and find out.

We had a very good experience in the hostel.Arrived spontaneously, and were welcomed very friendly. The accomodation is comfortable and very close to all important sites in Petra! Would recommend any traveller or backpacker to stay here.

Very nice views of the full city. In my case, I need travel very early in the morning, and they put me...

Upon entering I was greeted amicability by the owner. He had much advice to offer about places to eat, things to do and decent cigarettes to buy. He was also able to talk politics and religion and showed himself as quite intelligent. The other staff however, were slightly lacking in personality and their apathy towards doing any more than was...

ok i was there back in April 2010 and my recollection of the place was good being a backpackers hostel. The single room I stayed was pretty ordinary but it was a good roof over my head which was what I only needed in Petra. After all, you're going to be out and about. Fact is I was in the...

Room was battered and not clean. Kitchen on top floor was filthy and disgusting. Hot water only offered on first night of 3. Long walks around Petra in dust, then no shower. No owner around when we wanted to ask for hot water. Had to clean our toilet before using. The owner was helpful and friendly and did book bus...

I stayed in a private ensuite. Not worth the money. The toilet had no seat, dirty carpets, no hot water, its cold outside and heater doesn't work. Room with broken closet door. Low water pressure, toilet handle rigged with a rope.
