I went there on Sunday evening (despite reading previous reviews) and it isn´t that bad at all. Or rather, it is quite ok.
Not easy to find - but it is in front of the Staybridge Suites Hotel, it took me one minute to find it. The Receptionist (owner?) speaks good English and explains you everything you need to know. All prices are clearly stated when you enter. I don´t remember exactly, but the entry is somewhere around 15USD. 10-min massage costs around 4 USD (no problem to prolong it for 30 minutes or more). I bought a new loofah.
The only part not worth it was the gommage (scrub). The big (Syrian?) guy did it for 1 min max. Steam was good. Massage was ok. Not many men there (app 8 local guys) - but those who were there were willing to socialize, some nice discussions. Discreet place, of course. Staff expects some tips - so if you feel the service was good, tip them.
Not the best hammam in the world, not not a bad place either. I felt like I need to go to a hammam that night (tired after lots of sightseeing) and I don´t regret not going to an upscale place in a 5-star hotel. I rathe rlike it local and more authentic than fancy.

This is by far the worst Hammam that I have visited in my entire life.

If you dare to enter you will be greeted by a cloud of cigarette smoke, generated by the staff. This place is in need of repairs, TLC and a good clean up. The grotty looking sauna is of particular health and safety concern

The actual service itself was also pretty basic. The best part was the scrub. The massage was laughable and in fact I did laugh when the chap told me that was a massage. The cost was $27, definitely not worth it.

I hope this review protects others.

We were warmly welcomed with traditional Middle Eastern warmth. We placed our valuables in lockers and were then led to the waiting room, which was an open area near the reception. That's where we were expected to change into our bathing suits! A bit disconcerting, but since there were no men around, we weren't too concerned. Just after changing, a man walked in...wait, what?! Oh, it was explained to us, this is the manager just here to pick up a passport. Weird.
Of course, we all needed to go the bathroom, so through an unmarked door, past bags of cement, and into a dank bathroom we went, one by one. Bleh. Mish quoisa. But, hey, we have the baths waiting for us!
First, we were led to the sauna: a grubby, barely warm wooden room. I asked the female maitre d' for towels and she brought one small hand towel...not exactly what I had in mind. The steam room, after that, was the best...and even smelled minty! Then, the maitre d' came to get us one at a time for the scrubbing. We realized after the first person that they were using the same loofa mitt for all of us, and that a new one was about $15. But the effects were lovely, and really did the trick.
After that, we were going to have a massage. But the lady who did the scrubbing also did the massages, so we were waiting together in the decrepit, non-functioning jacuzzi area. The one good part was that it was warm, even if not very pleasant. The last two of us in line for our massages, decided to forgo them since the wait was so long.
All in all, not a particularly pleasant experience but the falafel on the street afterwards....amazing!
