We spent a night here on our trip to the Masada ruins. It is a combined guest house and hostel depending upon the number of people in your party and the options you want. We opted for a room for two with an in-room bath. There are not many options for dining in the area so we had dinner and...

This guest house is right down the Massada mountain. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast and dinner were very good. The staff are polite and helpful I give it only 4 stars because it is not very easy to get there if you do not have a car and it is not a luxurious hotel..

We recently stayed here with a group of friends. We were 25 families with children. The hostel is clean and the rooms are nice with a TV, fridge, air conditioning and free wi-fi ( which was a bit slow). You can't beat the location, situated right at the foot of Massada. The pool is an added bonus and our children...

I stayed here during my recent solo bike tour around Israel and the West Bank. I booked a dorm room for $38 x 2 nights, which included breakfast. They accepted my US credit card from Capital One (which has zero foreign fees). I was assigned to room 111, which had only 2 beds. Things I liked I had a nice...

If you have a car to get to the dead sea, this is one of the best places to stay in the area. The pool was practically empty when we stayed, and we had it all to ourselves! The conditions of the room were very high; very clean, organized, and easy to access. Highly recommended!

Au pied du site de Massada à 20 mètres du Snake Path pour faire l’ascension de la Forteresse avant l’aube. Piscine et un petit déjeuner somptueux qui vous attendent après votre visite à la Citadelle. Chambres spartiates mais situation privilégiée. À 14 km de l’Ein Gedi Spa. Magique. Just few steps from the Snake Path to reach the Fortress before...

Not just an hotel but an amazing place, at the foot of Massada (500m from the site entrance), even if it's not a first class confort hotel, visitors will find there an end-of-world atmosphere with a wonderful view on the dead sea. The restaurant ($12 for diner) recalls images of kibboutz A large swimming pool completes this beautiful picture

We stayed at the Massada Hostel for one night. I have been here before twice, that's why I decided to bring my mom to this hostel during her staying in Israel. Unfortunetly our room made us disappointed. It wasn't clean (two cockroach, and a dirty toilet), and the AC was so loud. The room was dark, because the window faced...
