Dead Sea Adventure Hostel



Life begins at the end of your comfort zone,
But we are here to make you comfortable outside your comfort zone!

Our Dead Sea Adventure Hostel is, at the moment, the ONLY backpackers’ hostel in the entire Dead Sea area and the Judean desert.
“How come” you ask? Well, apparently in the entire Judean desert and the Dead Sea area there was no place for backpackers. Yep.
And that’s where we came in, to create the first and right now the only backpackers’ hostel in the region, and the first Adventure Hostel in the Middle East!

With the backpackers’ and adventurers’ needs in mind, we have created the base for all of those who wish to discover the Judean desert and the Dead Sea.
With plenty of hiking trails just outside the door, relaxed atmosphere, cold beer in the fridge and much more, we want to make sure you are ready to head out into the desert wilderness.

The hostel also serves as an information and adventure centre, manned by Wild-Trails professional adventure guides that will give you a one-on-one personal treatment for all your travelling needs. Be it logistics, car rentals, water drops or food, we got you covered.
And of course all the information you might need, for free and with much love.
