one night in Eilat (or from there to Dead Sea during Sabbat)

by PackElend Online Now Jan 4, 2012 at 9:00 AM

Hi folks,
we are 2 travelers staying in Petra, Jordan until Friday but then we have to go back Israel, since our flight is leaving on Sunday in the very morning.
We are trying to get to the the death sea on Friday but we will arrive in Israel after dawn, so we getting straight into Sabbath, but maybe we are lucky and we find a intercity service taxi crossed finger
In case we can't make we have to stay a night in Eilat, but where???
There not the much hostels on the standard hostels search engines and they mostly request a 2 day booking.
But I heard something about Red Sea Star - Vista Azul Dive Centre but can't find anything on the web.
So maybe anyone of you can give us some help, would be really great :)
By the way, there are frequent connections from Dead Sea (Mas´ada or En Gedi) to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv?

Thx
stefan

    It's not gona be hard finding ah hotel, also for 1 night, in Eilat. There are only hotels! Well, try with the ones not in the centre but toward the Egipt border (3-4 km) from the centre.

    From Ein Gedi it won't be hard to find connections to Jerusalem, and from there to TA.

    Hi!

    There certainly are hostels in Eilat, not only hotels. For quality and also for a good location you can count on the one belonging to the Israel Youth Hostel Association:

    Enjoy!
