Exceptional”

The facility was very nice. I stayed overnight at the hostel so that I could run at the Dead Sea Marathon early Friday morning. I checked out of the hostel Friday morning, as planned, around 5:25 am. I was disappointed that when I made the reservation, the Hostel did not allow me to check out late on Friday, was not willing to pack a breakfast for me, was not willing to hold a breakfast for me, and was not willing to refund me for not having the breakfast.

Absolute winner”

Modern, clean, location

I'm a seasoned traveler, and admit I had felt I had "graduated" from ever staying in a Hostel. But, while researching for doing the Massada sunrise hike, one comes to realize this Hostel is really the only game in town unless you wish to add on driving time at 4:30 in the morning. So, I booked it. This property is an absolute gem. Very clean and quite modern. That said, it is a Hostel. So, you get cafeteria-style dining and bare-bones, but a clean and modern room and facilities. I booked a private room, which is still a great value. There were enough food choices that most folks should be able to find items they are willing to eat. So, throw away the Hostel stigma. This place is terrific and the only place to stay if you are serious about the Massada sunrise hike that is a stone's throw away.

Best hostel in the area”

1.Comfortable room 2. Friendly staff 3.Great breakfast

This is the only hostel near Massada. The hostel is new and very clean. They don’t have mixed dorms. My wife and I booked 1 bed in male dorm and 1 bed in female dorm. When we arrive no beds in a male dorm were available. So the staff gave us private room for the price of dorms.Breakfast is very good, bus stop to Eilat and Dead sea is very close.

What a view!”

swimming pool, view from balcony towards Dead Sea, location for Massada

Easy to find. Staff on front desk were incredibly helpful. View from balcony towards Dead Sea was really zany. Pool was wonderful! Breakfast was fab. Big, clean communal areas. The room was OK with a good sized balcony and the bathroom was incredibly roomy. Not even 5 mins walk to entrance to Massada which is a real bonus at 5 am!
