Desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Food was good. Fantastic location for people interested in Masada/Dead Sea. I didn't really care that the gate was left open because it made it easier to come and leave, but since you asked about security, I had to say it was only "fair". TV was a pleasant surprise for a hostel room.

En general, mi estancia en el Albergue de Masada ha sido muy bueno. No recuerdo nada malo que se deba destacar. Quizás el precio. Es bastante alto para ser un albergue juvenil.

La seule chose que j'ai à critiquer c'est l'hôtesse d’accueil qui m'a induite en erreur en m'indiquant les bus et qui m'a fait perdre une matinée et une après-midi. J'aurais mieux fait de ne pas l'écouter.
