- 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.
location, equipment, breakfast buffet,
younger guests did not keep night peace (unfortunately I do not know whether Israel exists)
Food was OK - Pool was nice - Quiet nights. Great value. Great views. Restaurant workers were generally attentive and helpful, Room was big with kitchen area.
Not enough parking during the holiday. Furniture in the room was minimal and not soft and cushy, (only hard chairs in the solon)
at the bottom of Masada, closest place to start the hike up before dawn, quite new, spacious rooms, great bathrooms, nice views, food at the buffet, in-house kiosk for snacks
pretty much a dorm for students, full of students and tourist groups, dorm architecture taking away the beauty of the site
Location near Massada and price
Noisy, busses of kids, ran around and shouted all night Breakfast is not served befor 08:30, as well as on that hour the front desk starts functioning and one can not check out early and get the invoice in the evening because of some "date issue"
Very clean, spacious room, good shower, amazing breakfast - had 12 types of cheese products, etc. Very close to Massada gate- 2 minutes, recommend to start climbing at around 4:40 am to get a view of sunset from Massada. Short drive to Ein Bokek to Dead Sea- 13 kms and to Ein Gedi Kibbutz and Spa. There is also and option to purchase a dinner buffet for approx. 55 shekels per person.
Might get a bit noisy as the hostel is widely used for school trips, so a lot of kids around.
Location is perfect for trips to Massada, to Ein Gedi national park and for swimming in the Dead Sea. Room was clean. Air-conditioning in the room. Nice terrace with view to Dead Sea. Dinner offered (didn't take it, but looked good). Good and rich breakfast. If you are just looking for a place to stay for the night it's worth the price.
It's a large "official" IYHA youth hostel and that's what it looks and feels like. No self-catering kitchen or equipment, we didn't even get plates and cutlery on request from the dining room. No common room (there is only the terrace and the hall). Our private double room was quite small with small window, only good for sleeping, not for staying in. Without any "atmosphere".
Great pool,an oasis in the desert Dinner was simple yet very good Good clean room
Pool closed at 5:00
Rooms are clean and comfortable, even if dorm-room style. Walking distance to Masada trail. Pool still open in late October and had it all to ourselves in the morning.
I liked just about everything. The location, the service, the staff at the reception and at breakfast which was great. The Pool. In short, highly recommended.
very nice hotel just below MASADA, close to Ein Gedi for spa and trecking in wadi david, profesional staff on reception, swiming pool in hotel, woth to order dinners (only80nis for reach buffet)
if you don't have car and there are holidays or sabat you will need to use local taxi, one way to Ein Gedi 150nis (ask for number on Yosi taxi driver, they know him in reception)
Able to climb Masada for the sunrise, quiet location, breakfast included, being able to purchase dinner, the availability of the cold water at the front of the hostel and the cats wandering around.
Swimming pool closing so early
It was a great location for everything around the dead sea and Masada. So easy waking in the morning to walk up Masada to watch the sun rise, wander around and then able to walk down to have breakfast waiting for us. The evening meal and breakfast were really good and great variety of choices.
The swimming pool closing so early (6pm). Why can't it be opened without a life guard and instead children be supervised by adults. Our teenage kids were having so much fun in the swimming pool with us also being present.
Pricey for a hostel
premises, location if you want to go for the sunrise in Masada ruins
staff, getting information about simple things as how to get to other locations near the dead sea required a lot of patience (answering questions with a question is not the best way to communicate)
the location is good，it is at the foot of the mountain。If you want to see sunrise in the morning，this hotel is your only choice。
wifi is not good。I can't connect internet during my staying。the receiption said it is the problem of my iPhone，not the problem of wife。of couse，I can't accept this explain。
Secured location, balcony view.
Breakfast not very tasty.
Thought it's billed as a hostel/guest house, it seemed more like a four-star hotel to me. Room, amenities, and breakfast were all first-rate. Would definitely stay there again.
Can't think of much. Might have preferred breakfast to be available after 9:30AM, but that did not pose a major problem - even with my pre-dawn climb to the summit of Masada.
very nice location, nice breakfast, descent room and facilities.
pool area a bit dirty
