The camplodge is very clean and very comfortable. The cabins are spacious and there are thick mattresses for the guests. The toilets and bathrooms are being cleaned all the time by the friendly staff. Well equipped kitchen is for the guests usage. I would definitely stay there again
We stayed in Shkedi's camplodge for two nights. GREAT place!!! The facilities were so convinient, fully equipped kitchen, warm water and comfy lodge. Gil himself is so hospitable, and the place is so inviting. Most likely to return again.
After a day floating in the super salty Dead Sea at Ein Bokek, I traveled by local bus for about 30 minutes to Neot Hakikar, a moshav ( cooperative agricultural community of individual farms) in the northern part of the Arava Valley. It was stormy and raining as I arrived and the electricity went out! However, the owner, Gil Shkedi, put tea light candles around the camp lodge and all was fine with a friendly, relaxing atmosphere. I was glad circumstances disconnected me from internet access for a day. It was great to rest and read. The hospitality was warm with a good kitchen, bar, and common area with a share library. After a good night's sleep, the sun came up brightly and I loved my morning walk in the desert like landscape with views to beautiful Judaean Hills.
Great place! Welcoming, clean and most of all: calm! It acomodates everything you need including a well equiped kitchen. Good music and very close to location around the dead sea. Even the kids managed to stay nice and calm.
We stayed 1 night only at this hostel and I regretted it... I would have stayed so much longer! I loooved it! Decor is crazy beautiful. A little like Burning Man Festival kind of art everywhere. Hammocks, campfire, trees, sofas, fully furnished kitchen, cats and dogs wandering everywhere. Everything was great! We were there in october and it was totally empty. We were us 2 and the host. So no much ambiance. But I'm sure that during high season it would be a lot of fun. If you go to the dead sea, you MUST go to Shkedi's Camplodge!
