I would like to start saying that I have been in many hostels before and therefore I knew what to expect when booking the Bedouin Moon Village, well I was wrong!
Staying in a hostel does not mean you have to put up with complete disorganization, dirt, unbelievably small rooms and a horrible breakfast.
We arrived in the hostel at 5 a.m. and despite having agreed the late arrival by e-mail, and having paid also for the day before to make sure we had the room on early arrival, nobody was waiting for us. The room was really small and the air conditioning was so noisy that it sounded like a plane taking off in the room, but we had the pleasure to share the room with several kind of spiders and bugs.
The breakfast consist in half apple (turned brown), few wrapped snacks that you can buy in any petrol station, and a cup of coffee that made us sick on our very first morning in Aqaba. We decided to spend the day in a private beach (the Bernice Beach club) quite close to the hostel. You pay 15JD to get in, but at least you can wear a bikini and take a decent shower (as the one we had in the hostel could not be considered as one).
On our second morning we had to skip breakfast, as at 9 am there was still nobody up to serve it (although there was not really much to prepare) and we had to leave for our Wadi Rum tour. Also paying the bill was a challenge… we had to wait for the owner to get up, credit card machine was not working, and when we gave him the cash we gave us bottles of water back instead of change as he did not have any.
Overall a very bad experience, I would definitely not recommend this hotel, even to the ones travelling on a tight budget.
