Get to know Aqaba (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Aqaba.

Aqaba, Jordan, is overlooked by the most people who are traveling around Jordan -- most people think about the ancient city of Petra, the Wadi Rum Desert, and maybe the Dead Sea when they think about visiting Jordan. The resort city of Aqaba is just a few kilometres across the border from the much more popular beach city Eilat in Israel.

With the significant increase of airlines flying from Europe to Eilat, Israel, and both Ryanair and Easyjet recently starting routes to Aqaba, Jordan, Aqaba has become an interesting starting point for itineraries around Jordan. With beaches on the Red Sea and its diving options, you can easily spend a few days in Aqaba. If you don’t aim to spend time on the beach, one day might be enough.

Whether you want to travel around the country or just want to make a small trips to Jordan’s famous cultural or natural sights, your Aqaba, Jordan hostel is a great place to start. Depending on the place, hostels in Aqaba, Jordan, can help you find transport to Petra or Wadi Rum. Tours to Wadi Rum can seem expensive for (solo) travelers on a budget, especially since Wadi Rum is difficult to visit independently, But in a Aqaba, Jordan hostel it is fairly easy to team up with other travelers and split the transportation costs. Other onward destinations in Jordan -- such as Petra and Amman -- are easier to reach by public transport. A bus to Amman leaves several times per day in takes about five hours.

There are only a few hostels in Aqaba, Jordan. Some (but not all) of them can be booked on the major booking sites. If you are traveling with two or more people, you can find private rooms in a local hotel or in a bed-and-breakfast for less than the price of two beds in a dorm.
