The Dead Sea Adventure Hostel is the perfect base for discovering the Dead Sea, Masada, and the desert. The hostel is also a travel and adventure center for backpackers, where our knowledgeable can give you all kinds of advice about the different activities you can do around the Israeli desert.
The hostel is located at the edge of Arad, a small southern city that sits on the border between the Negev and Judean deserts. We are just on the corner of the road leading to Masada, at an area full of beautiful hiking trails, running and cycling paths, and breathtaking canyons and mountains.

a winery, craft beer brewery, and public transport to all major cities in Israel.
