A little noisy even late in the evening because of schools staying at the hotel before visiting Masada.

Thus is a superb location and very informal and fitting for the uniqueness of the place. We had a newly refurbished room which was clean, functional and practical. The vista is amazing and weather very comfortable in February. Perfect location to join early morning before sunrise walk along snake path to the top of Masada with a group. Only thing that marred it was unwelcome staff member Gabi and large groups of noisy school children. However, we navigated both these, had lovely staff in dining room and Yulia on reception who more than compensated with her superb service. Overall, functional, fit for purpose and in fitting with location and purpose of visit to climb Masada- better than any fancy hotel imo!

A fantastic hostel perfectly located for Masada. The beds are comfortable and the place is super clean. Everything is set up for climbing Masada for sunrise. The staff advise you the time of sunrise and suggest when you need to start climbing. Breakfast is timed so that you can climb to Masada, spend several hours exploring and walk down - and still be in time for breakfast (which is included). Dinner $15 is substantial and just what is needed the night before. The bus stops right outside the hostel. The reception staff gave me a voucher for 50% off the entry to Ein Gedi Highly recommended.
