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 weird because there was a family that "lived" in the hostel but the kids (a boy and a girl, both very young), were young brats, and kept screaming and throwing things in the main room. It was really annoying and their mother didn't say anything, so it kept going...
However, the hostel is very well situated (in the city centre so it's cool because you can go almost everywhere on your own by foot), you have a lot of shops, nice markets and touristic sites close by. The prices are also very low. I paid very little money for 4 nights and I was very warmly welcomed in this hostel. The manager is really nice and always ready to help you (to translate things, to indicate what to do, where, how....). The hostel also organizes a lot of little trips quite cheap (to the castles in the desert, to Jerash and Ajlun). So it's cool. It costs around 20€ for a daytrip to the castles in the desert and the car waits for you so it's cheap and good!
Furthermore, I paid cheap for a one-bed room and I ended up with a 2 beds room + huge balcony so it was really cool and nice!
So this hostel is half bad, half good!
