The location of the hostel is perfect is you want to see the sunset from Masada. The rooms are clean, but does not really have any charm. Some of the staff were very unpolite and some did not speak English at all (!), but others very super friendly and with a perfect English. I wonder why this difference. The food they served in the evening (which you pay for) was just and extension of the breakfast (which is included) + some pasta, but the staff gave us a discount when we complained.


Perfect location, great pool, large breakfast, this hostel looks more like a hotel!


Fantastic location to climb massada and have a full experience. Then there's a rewarding fantasic israeli buffet breakfast at a seriously high calibre. I completely recommend this place. The wifi was available all the time, the staff were knowledgeable and English fluent. There were a lot of young tour groups and the front desk offered a more quiet room location for my husband and I which we so appreciated.

Amazing location and facility - food was superb and rooms large and clean. Great to be able to walk up Masada before a sumptuous breakfast. Family friendly.
