The place is clean and our bedroom was big and cosy.

The description of the hostel and facilities does not mach our experience. It does indeed have a terrace but not sure about BBQ facilities. Our room did not have a balcony nor a mountain view: one window faced the next-door property and the other one faced the main road and the mountains are a very far sight. There was no coffee machine in the room and I could not see one in the kitchen. There was no TV either. The kitchen we shared with another room had basic facilities and I am not sure about the cleaning standards as we did not use it. The room was spacious and the floor looked clean, the bed comfortable but there was no cover sheet - we had to ask for it but were given a blanket, which we did not use as it was very hot - not really hygienic either without a cover for it (I doubt they wash it after each use). The shower had no hot water. The owner/manager told us he has plans for the hostel and I hope he improves the standards because the property really needs some TLC (for example the aircon unit was working but there were bits missing and holes around it, mosquito screens with holes, bathroom could have been cleaner, there was a lot of hair in the shower). They also need to address critters: nevermind ants, but we found cockroaches (wardrobe and common rooms). Also strange that they did not ask for our passports at check in and we did not get a receipt for our payment. I am not sure other reviewers have stayed in the same place as us because I would definitely not rate this place as excellent.

I'd love to stay more, you have this place everything, you need - privacy, enough room for 4, a clean place and a very kind host. :) We found the place via couchsurfing and I admit that this is the best place I've ever had on the couchsurfing site. :)

smail has been very nice to couch surf with. We stayed in his twin room and there was alot of space, enough to do some exercise! On one evening he hosted a rooftop bbq with us and his airbnb guests, with music, glimpses of aqaba city lights and alot of fun. Decent shower, clean apartment. Tiled floors cleaned regularly. Tea and coffee available downstairs in Ismails apartment. Our apartment was a 2 bedroom place with shared bathroom depending on what guests checked into the other room that day. Bathroom door a little tricky to lock - you need to push it hard while turning the lock. Kitchen, dining table and lounge was a nice touch. 20 mins drive to South beach for great snorkelling. Thank you Ismail!
