A great shabbat dinner on fridays. Modern and clean bathroom. Spacious rooms.
Swimming pool only opened on weekends.
Location fantastic and balcony looking over .to Dead Sea. Jumped out of bed & walked to Masada top before sunrise. Bus service to & from also excellent.
If you want to visit Masada the guesthouse is the place to stay: you can leave at 5:30 to see the sunset on top by simple walking from the guesthouse. The staff is super nice and the dinner was excellent (we went on Friday night). We booked a place in a dorm separately but the hostel put us in a private two bed room.
Food was basic and plentiful. Rooms were quite comfortable.
If you travel in winter not even think to host you here . We arrived one evening at 18pm . The receptionist , Russian , had difficulty speaking English . At first they told us that the heating did not work , or half the electrical installation ( the temperature outside was 8 degrees) . The head of maintenance that put all their good will not speak English , only Russian and could not operate the electrical system . The stay was not economical , and we ask for a price reduction does not provide for minimum conditions . The receptionist Russian only knew that she could not do any discount. He was not going to forward us the nearest youth hostel (20 km) where there if you worked all services, we were out the next morning ... It seems incredible that an accommodation depends on a government nets , keep these shortcomings ...
Insects in the room. Swimming pool too dirty
The atmosphere of the place was just lovely. There was room for us to feel at home, enjoy the scenery and the air. It was just splendid.
Even though we had a booking the hostel did not bother to notify us that access was not possible. When we contacted them on the day of arrival they advised specifically that we should make the 3.5 hour drive to the hostel-only to arrive and not be able to get in, leaving us without accommodation.
The location is great if the weather is good. Breakfast was also good on the first day.
There was no electricity because of the windy weather, meaning no heating in the cold room, no telephone, no internet, we were totally cut off from the world. Breakfast was dry loaves of bread with cold vegetables because there was no electricity. But the hostel has a generator, which means that this is not the first time it happened. Buying food heaters is such a small investment that would make a huge change. And at least the receptionist could have been nice, but he just shrugged whatever we asked. The kitchen guy was the only helpful staff member.
If you're looking to climb Masada early in the morning - this place is your best option. The views are great, the dinner and breakfast buffet was very very good - best value for the money that you can find between Jerusalem and Eilat. A great base for Masada, Ein Gedi and the Dead Sea.
The food was very basic and over done.
position is great for going to Masada for sunrise. Breakfast was ok.
Was a bit cold and heating system wasn't working properly
The location next to Masada was very convenient, and the breakfast was expansive and delicious.
The hostel staff didn't speak English well, so it was difficult to communicate. Also, there was no heat or electricity because of a recent storm. Also, a little bit pricey, but is really the only hostel in the area.
everything were great, but
when the national park and the roads were closed due to bad weather we remain without proposal strategy. More information about the electricity, lighting, heating, food and options escapes. And polisy reduce costs for displaced residents would be good.
The location is perfect! If you are in this region I suggest you this hotel. The breakfast was included in price and it was great.
Best hostel I've ever stayed at. It's more of a hotel than a hostel. Large room with windows on two sides and with a large balcony facing the dead sea. The location is perfect for Masada, however not as good for anything else.
We didn't know what to expect from a youth hostel in Israel. The place was immaculate. It was clean and beautiful. The food was abundant and delicious. The price is great.
Great location, breakfast, staff and value for money. Will be back there.
We ordered a room for 2 and there were 5 beds. It is not critical however still gives strange feeling.
- hostel was booked up by a school except for a few rooms. staff were considerate in accommodating all kids in a different section of the hostel, so the noise would not disturb other guests. as a result, we received a nice free upgrade from a private twin to a 2 bedroom suite. - very clean and well maintained. my 3rd time staying here and i would go back again for any future trips to the Dead Sea/Massada. - great location if you wish to do the sunrise hike up Massada.
- only complain is the price is steep for a hostel, but it is your only option if you can't afford the Ein Bokek hotel prices.
Loud groups of teenagers
Location. Great to climb Massada early morning and still get breakfast afterwards!
Can be noisy with buses of school children
Beautiful Location. Good food.
Difficulty or impossibility to go to the Dead Sea if travelling without a car.
Good location, 10-15 min drive to Dead Sea, very close to Masada forttress if you interessed in climbing. Recommend to climb early in the morning to see sunrise (very beautifull) and avoid hot Sun at the daytime. You can buy dinner at the hotel for the affordable price (apprx 10 eur per person), not a fancy place to eat but good enough. Not close to the beaches of dead sea no problem if you have a car, and you can choose a new beach each day. We recommend a beach in Neve Zohar, not crowdy and clean and kids can enjoy playing with sand-salt.
A lot of school kids running around making noise late at the night but we were so tired so it didnt bother us so much. Some cochroach in the cantine and rooms. Place good to stay in a few days not more.
Great facility WiFi everywhere Good breakfast
Great location at the base of the Masada and close to Ein Gedi and Ein Bokek. Clean, comfortable, quiet suite.
Had problems with the internet - staff couldn't help. Food was not very appetizing.
