No BeachThe only problem is that there is no beach at this place. The beach is not allowed for 5 years. It could have been to inform us before. The only public beach to the dead sea is at 30 mn !

ExceptionalClean basic room. Nothing fancy but view of Dead Sea was beautiful from our balcony and it was a safe and secure place with guarded fence around so we slept well and had a decent meal there as well. Very nice if you are looking for great location, good price, clean but not needing fancy hotel like room!

Great place to stayOverall me and husbands experience was great. Check in was easy and everyone was friendly. The room was clean and had a beautiful view of the Dead Sea. Since this is a youth hostel, it was full of youth. Thankfully our room was on the 3rd floor so the buzzing of the groups of kids outside did not disrupt us. We hiked Masada in the morning, which was about a 15 minute drive. We hiked Ein Gedi before check in which is about a 5 minute drive. Breakfast was fresh and good. There were just a ton of kids to try to deal with to get food, but it was manageable. I would stay here again.

Great Hostel in the NatureI was really overwhelmed by the beauty of the nature surrounding the hostel. But you have to be aware of the fact that there is no near open beach to the dead sea, you'd have to drive for quite a while. But the hostel and the view were really beautiful and made up for that detail. There are unfortunately no near grocery stores, so better bring some food and drinks.

Ein Gedi”

The location of the hostel is ideal for Masada and also for the Dead Sea (rather than Ein Bokek). This location should be preferred for those who don't want the "tourist" locations of Ein Bokek as it is located close to Masada and the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve.

Perfect for a stay in the Dead Sea area. Our teenagers loved the hostel.”

Superb location. Our balcony overlooked the Dead Sea. We also visited the Ein GedI nature reserve which was right next door. The room was large, comfortable, and scrupulously clean. The staff at reception and in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful.

Ein Gedi Hostel is in a good location right next to a nature preserve, short drive from the EG Spa & Masada. Our room was quiet at night and clean. Breakfast was the weakest link. Got our money's worth though.

The room was clean and fresh with a beautiful sea view. Our peaceful time was destroyed by group of wild, noisy school boys which left us without breakfast and unhelpful chef. Check if schools are coming before booking.
