A nice hostel, made special by the genuinely lovely staff. I initially stayed for four nights when I first arrived in Jordan. After returning for a final night at the end of my trip, it felt like I’d come home. There are no unnecessary rules or annoyances; everything is kept simple. It’s just a friendly, chilled-out place to stay – and in a great location.

I stayed a week in Amman and used it as a base to travel the north of the country. I sleeped in the dorm of the hostel. I have to say this is an 10/10 hostel. It has everything a backpacker need and plus the workers are super helpful and friendly. Breakfast is delicius. Location is perfect. And is also very quiet. If I will return to Amman one day, I definetely choose this hostel. Thanks for your support and precious advices

A courtyard is accessible for drink and with washing machines. Fridge in the room. Excellent bedding. Very friendly reception. Rudimentary breakfast. Free parking un the street in front of the hotel. Excellent wifi. Ideal location to visit the city. I definitely recommend this place

From the moment walking in the door - people were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The staff was knowledgeable and helped us quickly plan our two weeks in Jordan. It was spotless clean, the outdoor patio was a great place to meet other travelers, the washing machine was so welcome, and breakfast was ample. Comfortable beds.

We recently spent two nights at this hotel, and we were pleased with our choice. It's in a great central location, and the staff was friendly. The facility and rooms were pretty basic, but perfectly safe and clean. Good value, and we'd stay there again without hesitation.

According to me Sydney Hotel Amman is best budget Hotel in Amman. Firstly location is very good in old Amman area,its very near all of sightseeing and restaurants, shopping. From airport you can get on sariya bus then, it drops you in 7th circle from there you can go to hotel 2.5 JD with uber. Hotel is first level of building there is no elevator, its not problem if. you ring the bell. they will help you, Hotel staff and owner od hotel are very nice and helpfull about everything. Rooms. very comfortable, cosy and clean, hot water is superb, Ac is working very well as a heater, there is also little balcony if you smoke, there is also backyard for rest, smoke. Breakfast excellent for me, its enough. For Internet connection wifi coverage signal strenght good, sometime slows due to high load this is not serious problem, in Jordan there are some restrictions for Internet like whatsup video call. I got a little advice floor in room is very cold, I thin it needs a solution, Hotel will decide it Overall is very good, thank you so much
