The capsule hotel craze has reached Petra, Jordan's most popular tourist site. The hostel is in the heart of the new town, Wadi Musa, right next to the 5th century BC capital of the Nabataean Kingdom. The location makes it perfect for an overnight stay to discover the ancient history of Petra and its majestic architecture.
So what's different here? At first, it seems like a regular hostel with some private rooms and bunk bed options. But at a closer look, you'll find that the shared rooms have single and double occupancy capsules, and many of them have top-to-bottom windows. Better yet, there is a corner capsule with two glass walls, offering panoramic views on Wadi Musa and the magical landscape of Petra. The cozy pods with wooden finishing have curtains for added privacy. Each sleeping pod comes with a flat-screen TV, phone charging points, USB ports, and free WiFi.
Before you head out for a long day of walking, the hostel also provides a complimentary continental breakfast. The ancient site of Petra is only a 15-minute walk from the hostel, and once you are back, there are plenty of dining options around.
