Das Personal ist sehr freundlich. Parkplätze etwas knapp. Wir waren enttäuscht, dass wir noch 30 kilometer fahren mussten, um ins Totem Meer baden zu können.

Die Jugendherberge liegt sehr schön oberhalb der Straße am Toten Meer. Die beiden Wadis von En Gedi sind von hier aus sehr gut zu erreichen. Die Jugendherberge ist baulich in einem guten bis sehr guten Zustand. Das Frühstücksbüffet, israelisch, ist sehr vielfältig und lecker. Das Servicepersonal ist sehr flink und aufmerksam. Leider kann man wegen der Schlucklöcher (Sinkholes) nicht mehr im Toten Meer bei En Gedi baden.
