Lee and Yoash are such kind, generous, authentic people who really give this place the 5 star rating it deserves. They welcomed me in with delicious food, warm smiles, great conversation, and turned my previously bad day upside down. They are good people who believe in the goodness of other people, making this a place you can trust. In the...

We stayed here for two nights, and found it to be a rather excellent base from which to explore the area. Especially Lee (the owner) was extremely helpful. She is doing all the right moves with her hostel which--being small in size--feels homely and intimate.

We booked a double room at 'the second floor' which is their apartment, a few minutes down the road. It was perfect. The hosts are super friendly, and make sure you have everything you need. They showed us a nice hiking trail and gave us some travel information. The hostel and the apartment were both super clean and nicely decorated....

This is the second time I have stayed at the "The Green Backpackers" Hostel. On both occasions I was MTBing in the Ramon area. Location for Biking & Hiking is just perfect with so many trails at hand and a wealth of knowledge and advice from the owners make the planning of routes easy... If they don't know the answer...

This is place is one of the better hostels I have been to. Hostels are made by the people that visit of course, and since this place is in the middle of the dessert it attracts the right audience, apperantly. Stayed here for 3 nights, spend 2 full days hiking in the area. It is an absolutly amazing area. Joash,...

I literally stumbled into this hostel after taking a bus to Mitzpe Ramon without much of a plan of where to stay. As I walked in, I was warmly welcomed even though I had no reservation or real idea what I was doing there beyond looking for information. Amazingly, the couple that runs the hostel and their lovely volunteer were...

We stayed at the Green Backpackers for only one night, but had a very nice time in Mizpe. We used the Backpackers Bikes to have a ride in the dessert and enjoyed very interesting conversations with other travellers. Lee even sent us a mobile phone back to Switzerland, which we forgot in the hostel. Thank you very much! I will...

This is a really great little hostel on the edge of the beautiful, fascinating and unusual town of Mitzpe Ramon The hostel felt more like a B&B as it had a small warm and homely feel to it. The staff are friendly and kept the hostel spotlessly clean and smelling nice at all times, as well as organising activities at...

The Green Backpackers is a great place to stay. Reserving a bed one day in advance I was already greeted with my name when entering the small hostel. The guy working at the hostel (sorry forgot his name) was really friendly and kind, explained everything, gave great advise and made me feel at home. I totally agree with the other...

Amazing place. Such an incredible location, near all hiking routes. Cozy, almost family atmosphere in the hostel itself, with volunteers being just absolutely the best staff I've ever encountered in Israel (Gabriel and Tina, I'm talking about you ;). Really nice, clean rooms, cool side activities that were available - Shabbath dinner prepared by everybody for everybody, putting together some...
