Budget accommodation in Muscat

Hi forum,

I have been searching for recent info but couldn't really get anywhere.

I'm looking for a budget guest house/hostel in Muscat. Budged is around 15 to 20 US$. If anyone has a hint that would be much appreciated!

It's quite urgent as I'm flying in two days time, spontaneous trip :-)...

Naseem, in Muttrah, is one of the most frequently talked about. When I stayed there (5 years ago), it was comparable to budget hotels/hostels in Cairo.


If you do not want to be down in Muttrah and would prefer to be in the newer areas of Muscat, have you considered couch surfing?

Hi greasy,

Many thanks for your reply. I'm not sure about the length of my stay so haven't really thought about couchsurfing, esp. as it's so short term. The Naseem is a great tip, it didn't show up in my search for greater Muscat before. They're fully booked though.

I called them on +968 24 712418 and the single room is usually 16.50 OR in case anyone is interested.

Any other suggestions are highly welcome!

Hi, as you knew already, Naseem is now 15RO plux tax and not bottom line anymore.

But they're clear and the location is convenient, you can walk upto Muttrah Souq and even you can catch taxi (Shared) or mini bus which will take you to other place.

In that area, now the cheapest is, I believe, Al Fanar Hotel, which is the last one from Fish Roundabout.

But whether you can get clean room or not depends on your luck...

I thought their last price is about 8RO, so nearly your budget.

And I don't think you can get cheaper than this... Good luck.
