We spent a night here and mostly were happy. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the air-con worked well and the meals offered were fine (breakfast, lunch and dinner). We managed to get a view of the Dead Sea (most rooms do) which was nice to watch during sunset and sunrise. On the flip-side, the wifi was woeful and constantly... More

This hostel looks more than hotel. So clean, so furnished, so quiet. Perfect breakfast included and amazing view from balcony to Dead sea from any single room. It would cost so much in Greece, Croatia or anywhere in Europe. There is very friendly staff. If you don't have a car, it simple to go here by bus from Eilat or... More

We booked a private room at this hostel. There was ample parking. The room was spacious and we had a million dollar view of the Dead Sea from our balcony. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was much better than I'm used to at hostels. We also had dinner there as there weren't many places to eat close by. Dinner was nothing... More

Standard hostel, often visited by school groups on NP and sea trips. Quite new rooms, clean, most of with balcony/terrace. Double and bunk beds. Spacious bathroom, cofee/tea facility. Central dining room, breakfast cold/warm, instant coffe. Dinner relatively pricey (60NIS), not tested. Wending machines near reception. In nextdoor (1,5 km) kibbutz Ein Gedi (often misplaced with this guesthouse Beit Sarah!) ATM,... More

I stayed here for 3 nights during a trip to Israel with Birthright. The location of this place is fantastic, right next to the Ein Gedi park, a fantastic place for a hike. As a guest house/hostel, there's not a ton of accolades as the place feels pretty old (feels a little like an old communist era build) but it... More

Ein Gedi Youth Hostel as this is also called has two buildings with private rooms and separate buildings with hostel dormitories. The hostel was very popular with several busloads of school kids. Fortunately private rooms were more calm. Guest house is located across the road from the Dead Sea. The rooms have balconies with views. The rooms are basic with... More

We loved our stay here. It is a hostel, but unlike other hostels in Israel, (ie Masada and Akko), it was not swarming with bus loads full of school kids. The rooms do have bunk beds but you do have the entire room to yourself. There is coffee and tea provided and a totally seperate large washroom with shower. Soap... More

We reserved two double rooms and didn’t expect to see bunk beds in addition to two single beds. We were told that all rooms have the same arrangement. We had more beds than we needed, so we used the bunk beds as luggage racks. The toilet is separate from the shower and the bathroom has double sinks, which is a... More

If you search this place anywhere else than here, search for Ein Gedi Youth Hostel. And it's a hostel. You may book double private rooms and get confused at the sight of 4 bunkbeds, but fear not, no-one else suddenly appears to share. Bathroom and WC are separate (great if you're more than 2 to share a room) and views... More

The youth hostel is a hostel. You were warned. The place is in a great location. It's right beside the Ein Gedi National Park (go cool off in the waterfall). Couples should also be warned that the room has separate beds. No cuddles here. Breakfast was bad. Close to Masada - only 17 kms away. Price is cheap. Clean. Good... More
