Great place to stay”

Overall 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.

Best breakfast we had in Israel”

Breakfast, cleanness, car parking

We were very positively surprised with the standard and the cleanness of the room. But the best thing about our stay in this hostel was the breakfast, which was the best we had in all hostels and hotels during our trip in Israel. We liked the parking lot. (One thing to keep in mind is that there was no entrance to the Dead Sea in Ein Gedi. The closest one was in Ein Bokek.)

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.

Clean 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!

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.

Great Hostel in the Nature”

I 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.

I love The Dead Sea and Ein Gedi”

Great location, clean and comfortable room for three individual adults.

I felt it could have been a bit cheaper. I would appreciate if breakfast served butter and not only margarine which is terrible and unhealthy stuff! When I asked about that, I was presented with one butter. This seemed to indicate to me that butter was on hand, so why not make available for everyone. Breakfast is not a meat meal, so butter would be kosher.
