This place certainly wasn't fancy, but it was incredibly clean. Some of our group had trouble getting the room heat high enough. Suppers and breakfasts were huge and delicious. Nice place to walk around. I recommend it.

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...

The standard of cleanliness was high and the rooms, being chalet style, were private and tranquil. As in most youth hostels in Israel, the sheets were far too small and kept falling off me. They might be the right size sheets for children but not for adults.

The rooms were very nice, and the hostel was definitely better than some of the hotels I visited in Israel. Staff were very friendly and provided excellent service. They were fast when responding to requests, and were extremely friendly. This was the place I visited in Israel that I felt the most welcome. The rooms were clean, very large, and...

We arrived in Arad after touring the biblical sites in the Shephelah related to the life of Shimshon. As we arrived in the Negev there was a great sandstorm. Visibility was rather low. We had supper in Beer Sheva and headed to Arad. We arrived prior to Shabbat beginning. The staff left early due to Shabbat. The place was clean...

The term "youth hostel," may give travelers the wrong impression. I didn't see this as a youth hostel until I was told. The grounds are beautiful! The rooms are nice. The food was very good. The location was mostly quiet and very relaxing. I would stay there again!
