    We thought that they had a well run, clean hostel. The room for two was perfect. Only issues for other travellers who are not YOUNG folks traveling is that it is noisy for a few hours late in the evening and then, it's perfectly quiet. The breakfasts are generous though the coffee machine wasn't working, so it was nescafe. Dinners are OKAY. Right next door to the ein gedi park.

    Wonderfully clean and comfortable rooms and beds. Better than mine at home. The dinner is a bit pricey so we did not partake but the free breakfast was lovely and needed.

    Great location, right next to some nice treks and 10 min. away from the Ein Kedem hot springs. However, it seems that the hostel does not accept reservations from the website anymore... we were lucky the staff didn't send us away and so they found a room for us. Beware!

    Great location for hiking Ein Gedi reseve, as it's walking distance. For anything else like Masada or Ein Gedi spa (the only access to the Dead Sea, as the public beach across the highway from the hostel has been closed for 3 years), you'd need a car, or a bus. The place is really more like a hotel with several people in the room. They provide towles and toiletries, there's a fridge and a teapot in the room. Full course breakfast included. No public shower, once you check out - you are done.

    Amazing place to stay in Ein Gedi. More like a hotel than a hostel. Great views and great rooms with really helpful staff. And right next to the most beautiful national park. Also really easy access via bus from Jerusalem.

    Very nice location, right in front of the sea and by the entrance to the Waterfall Park. If you come to this place bring your own food, there is nothing around to eat and the hostel offers a restaurant that is not that good. Nice staff. In general I totally recommend

    I advise to mention that Dead Sea is not reachable close to the hostel. you will need car or use bus to go for swim. Breakfast is very poor.

    Many tourgroups stay here. At night big group being really loud, yelling, running around, repeatedly banging on my bedroom door until after midnight. Rooms are ok but big difference in the quality of the beds within the same room. Right next to the National park but no facilities nearby. Staff is friendly. Hostel offers discount for National park and ein edi Spa. Biggest pro: breakfast is awesome!!! But WiFi is really bad, kept losing signal (not just in my room but in the entire hostel)
