Satisfactory but noisy”
We received a receipt with a lower amount than what we were billed for on the Internet. I don't understand why we were not refunded for the difference.

What a view!”
swimming pool, view from balcony towards Dead Sea, location for Massada
Easy to find. Staff on front desk were incredibly helpful. View from balcony towards Dead Sea was really zany. Pool was wonderful! Breakfast was fab. Big, clean communal areas. The room was OK with a good sized balcony and the bathroom was incredibly roomy. Not even 5 mins walk to entrance to Massada which is a real bonus at 5 am!

Best location to climb Massada!”
Location, the pool and the size of the rooms
We staid for 2 days and 2 nights. Excellent stay. The room had a lovely view to the Dead Sea. The rooms were very clean, the swimming pool was awesome! It is the best place to stay at if you want to climb up to Massada at sunrise. The hostel is located at the foot of the hill. It is only a short drive away from en bokek, where the public beach is easily accessible. The main drawback is the price. When you are a large family then it is worthwhile to stay in a family room for 6. Otherwise this is a very expensive hostel.

Absolute winner”
Modern, clean, location
I'm a seasoned traveler, and admit I had felt I had "graduated" from ever staying in a Hostel. But, while researching for doing the Massada sunrise hike, one comes to realize this Hostel is really the only game in town unless you wish to add on driving time at 4:30 in the morning. So, I booked it. This property is an absolute gem. Very clean and quite modern. That said, it is a Hostel. So, you get cafeteria-style dining and bare-bones, but a clean and modern room and facilities. I booked a private room, which is still a great value. There were enough food choices that most folks should be able to find items they are willing to eat. So, throw away the Hostel stigma. This place is terrific and the only place to stay if you are serious about the Massada sunrise hike that is a stone's throw away.

Best hostel in the area”
1.Comfortable room 2. Friendly staff 3.Great breakfast
This is the only hostel near Massada. The hostel is new and very clean. They don’t have mixed dorms. My wife and I booked 1 bed in male dorm and 1 bed in female dorm. When we arrive no beds in a male dorm were available. So the staff gave us private room for the price of dorms.Breakfast is very good, bus stop to Eilat and Dead sea is very close.

Bon accueil chambres simples mais confortables et très propres petit déjeuner copieux ”
Emplacement idéal pour le "snake path" 1 mn à pieds. Inconvénient : l'hôtel est fréquenté par des groupes scolaires donc il peut y avoir du bruit.

Localisation excellente”
L'hôtel est parfait pour faire la randonnée matinale de Massada (au pied du passage du serpent). L'ambiance est très sympathique, le personnel accueillant, la piscine est une vraie valeur ajoutée. Le petit déjeuner est un peu décevant (beaucoup de choses mais nous n'avons pas trouvé ça très bon), et le check out est un peu tôt (10h). Nous gardons toutefois un bon souvenir de notre séjour dans cet hôtel !
