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...

With great location, clean and comfortable family room and a great outdoors swimming pool this hostel is more like a 4 stars hotel than a hostel. Two downsides are that breakfast though nourishing is not very healthy (DO NOT MISS OUT DINNER OVER THERE ITS AMAZING) and not all rooms have balconies, which means you can either choose a family...

Excellent hotel with small although quite adequate ensuite rooms. Israeli breakfast was included and superb!! Location is 5 mins walk from either the snake path ascent to Masada or the cable car. Would highly recommend and would definitely rebook in the future.

We stayed here one night due to our morning hike up to Masada. It was clean, they had a lovely pool, descent breakfast with optional dining and it wasn't too far away from Ein Bokek. Mostly visited by groups of tourists who are visiting Masada. There isn't really anything else to do there, except visiting Masada, but the sunrise hike...

The hostel is cheap but offers a fair breakfast, optional dinner and a pool. If you're thinking to walk up to Masada to see the sunrise, it's the ideal solution: you arrive here the evening before, you can relax at the pool and then leave at 4.45 in order to be on top at 6 just in time for the...

This is super convenient to Masada Park and we found it to be superior to a hostel but with less luxury than a hotel - not really a surprise. Pool was excellent with awesome views of Dead Sea. Rooms were private since we were traveling as a family. We saw Qumron and Ein Gedi on our way to Masada then...
