If ]you've a car and one day is not enough to spend on the Dead Sea, then this hostel is a perfect choice. It's clean and the rooms are very decent. Breakfast is quite good too.
Yes, there're lots of teenagers around, but there was no trouble for us there.
Walking distance from the hostel is a nice local pub "Musa" where you can have a pint of beer and some good food too.
Price was 100$ per night, but it seems those are the good deals you can get in Israel:)
