An 8 am swimming in a pool with a spectacular view on the Masada mountain range amidst the desert is an enjoyable experience. Also the excellent breakfast with a large variety of choices adds to the positiv ratio. Surprisingly also the excellent water pressure in the shower and the bathroom appliances adds to the positive review. What however kept us...

Cheeper than hotels next to the dead sea in Ein Bokek but very basic, very hostel... Choose to stay here because of the good review, but if I ever come back to the area I will find a hotel in Ein Bokek for the following reasons: Even though I did not book the smallest single room, but a double, it...

The rooms are very basic. But extremely clean. Has a very nice large pool which we enjoyed after a very hot day. The dinner was good and worth every penny. The breakfast was very good as well. The employees all were very friendly which we appreciated.

We stayed here for one night along with 11 relatives on a recent trip to Israel. I can't comment on the cost since it was picked up by a very generous uncle! We had a family room with a bunkbed for our kids and two beds for us. It was quite spartan, but clean and with our own shower/bath .Can't...

This hostel can compare to some 3 star hotels I've been to. Clean, new, spacious room and bathroom. Friendly reception, good breakfast for a hostel (i.e. average for a hotel), all at a price that for Israel is quite reasonable. Couple of minutes walk from the visitor center and the snake path. If you plan on going up the path...

Let me begin by saying this was the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in. Definitely not your conventional idea of a hostel. It felt more like a hotel. I stayed in a private room with bath. Private rooms for two people will run about $100 a night which is reasonable for the area. The rooms are basic, clean and...

Stayed with family on December 2016. the good things: it's clean, the staff is friendly, good breakfast (with lots of healthy ingredients- contrary to what I read here), spacious room. close to Masada my main issue- even with a pool ( not for winter) it is still a youth hostel- and have the atmosphere of youth hostel even in the...

The best thing about this hostel is obviously the location. If you want to do the Masada Sunrise Walk or go up by cable car, this is the place to be. Ein Gedi and En Bokek are just around the corner, Jericho an hour by car. The second best thing in my view is the food. I've never eaten this...

My two sons and I stayed in this youth hostel located near the Eastern approach to Masada national park. We had three beds in one room with a built in shower room and toilet. Cost was only US$ 39. The construction is modern; very similar to a modular style dorm doom you would find on a US college campus. They...

We paid 100 eur per night and it was reasonable for the experience at the hostel. Rooms were clean and we had a nice view of dead sea. The common area terrace is a beautiful/ magical place so we sat there every night and drank a few bottles of wine. The place is basic but very decent. I would definitely...

“Try to get a room as far away from the groups of young people as you can. We stayed in rooms 104 and 105, each room could hold 4 people and they were quiet with a balcony overlooking the dead sea.”
