We stayed the night at the hostel in a private family room (1100 NIS) to hike up to Masada for the sunrise. The food was descent if a little high-school cafeteria-like. The wifi was non-functioning on 4+ devices and the front desk just said to restart your computer. Our AC also quit working at about 2 AM and the desk... More

This place is a combination of a youth hostel and spartan hotel (though the prices are not cheap). There was lots of teen and young adult groups staying while we were there, but the family rooms are in a separate wing and were quiet. The room was pretty comfortable and the pool was lovely (though crowded) in the heat. We... More

We loved our stay at the Massada Guest House. The room we got was more like a luxury hotel. Spotless. Spacious. Very quiet despite hundreds of kids staying there. The breakfast was excellent. The staff at reception very helpful. We would definitely stay there again!

That's the monopoly variant. Because it's only one possible variant of staying near Massada. That's why it's always overbooked and overpriced. And really it isn't a hostel, it's a big (huge) hotel with a lot of groups of children and pensioners. "HI Massada Hostel" is just marketing brand because the real name is different, like "Massada Youth Hostel". We visited... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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!
