Super clean, huge delicious breakfast, excellent hot shower, towel included. The staff were nice and helpful. The location right by the Masada is perfect for doing the sunrise climb and also for bussing to Ein Gedi or the beach. The bus stop is just 50 meters from the hostel. It's not a hostel atmosphere at all, more like a hotel. I recommend taking groceries for snacks and lunch. It's a good place to stay, overall I recommend!

The staff were very helpful at HI Masada and so courteous and explained all the information regarding the sunrise climb, as well as the staff in the dining room were extremely friendly and always smiling. The shared female rooms were spotless and this is the cleanest hostel I have stayed in throughout my travels in Israel. The location is amazing at the base of Masada and I was able to return within plenty of time to the hostel for an awesome breakfast before check out time at 10.00am

HI Masada is to hostels what KOA is to camping. They are really expensive (by hostel standards) but offer every possible amenity. It will be worth the price for most people and you just can't beat the location at the bottom of Herod's ancient city. Didn't interact much with staff except for Ilana, who never appeared to want to really extend herself to help. But I was only there a day and maybe this was uncharacteristic of her. But it made the place feel palpably less welcoming.

Awesome place especially given that it's right next to the Masada park office, breakfast was really good too.

I stayed with my wife and two children (ages 17 and 22). The room was very nice with a perfect setup in the bathroom such the all 4 of us could be in separate parts getting ready at the same time. The locationat the foot of Masada is outstanding. It is only 20 minutes to Ein Bokek, the only remaining free Dead Sea beach. It's a little pricy but the best option in the southern Dead Sea area.
