The place is so chilled out and relaxed that you will feel like home. The people working there are super nice guys willing to help you in feeling comfortable and in suggesting the best things to see around Mitzpe-Ramon. The whole space is clean, eco-friendly, equipped with all you could possibly need and honestly the best hostel I've ever been...

We arrived late at night after one of our backpacks got lost on the bus ride. Lee and her staff did everything possible to get it back, calmed us down and made us feel at home. They also gave us personalised and suitable hiking advise and even lent us hats and bags for the hikes since we were totally unprepared....

We only stayed here for 1 night, in a double room in the main building. But could have stayed for more, as the place is very well-kept and nice. Clean, tidy room, and the common kitchen is nice. There is only 1 shower/toilet room and 1 separate toilet for guests in the main building, but we didn't have to queue...

It's a very small and familiar hostel – the desert is beautiful to hike and Lee or someone else of the hostel staff helps you to plan your trips very precisley. The hostel is clean and cozy and the people are just great.

The hostel is very small, so the atmosphere is very friendly and familiar. The living room is super cozy, the kitchen very clean and you find everything you need for cooking and breakfast (breakfast is 10 NIS). Also our dorm room was very clean, simple but comfortable. All in all, this was the cleanest hostel I ever stayed in! The...

My girlfriend and I spent one night in a double room at the Green Backpackers Hostel after the last bus to Eilat left us stranded. The owners of the hostel had given us great advise for camping spots the night before. Remembering their help and the overall impression of their establishment, we decided to spend a night there. It is...

This was my first hostel. We took a private room, so not the full experience, but you have to start somewhere! We were in the alternate building down the street, which was clean and quiet. Fortunately one night we were the only people in the building and the other two nights we had very quiet neighbors. I think that the...

This is a super cute small hostel with few rooms and a living room and kitchen space which creates community! We were there in the winter when the evenings consisted of everyone sitting around the fireplace, talking, drawing, laughing, eating, drinking and completing a group puzzle together. This place attracts nice people to, all the volunteers and other backpackers were...
