I had a pleasant stay here. Staff made me feel very welcome & are very helpful. The atmosphere is cosy & i felt like i was home. Room very clean, lockers very spacious. Location fairly close to everything. There's even a KFC & a convenience store just a few blocks. I would recommend this hostel.


One of the best hostels I have stayed in. Excellent location, lovely helpful staff and good clean facilities. I would recommend Masada very highly!

Great hostel to meet other solo travelers! The staff was great! Big and clean beds. The locations is in a shady location, but there is lots of security
