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 a very warm and comfortable place with clean rooms and showers. Just the right place to go after a strenuous day of hiking. The staff is very helpful and friendly.
The price was fine.
We would gladly go there again.

Room Tip: We only spent one night in the double room with a shared shower. The room was great and the shower a...

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 place attracts tourists who want to go hiking early in the morning and get a good night’s sleep makes it especially chill. We cooked in the main building 2 of our 3 nights’ stay and found the kitchen well-equipped.

The staff really made this place. They were great about explaining directions, local attractions and restaurant recommendations. I had an asthma attack the first night we were there, despite the place being super clean. When I spoke to the staff, they were so invested in figuring out what happened and checking on me to make sure I was okay. The volunteer, Michaela was genuinely kind and helpful. Everyone went above and beyond!

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 nice people. We had a great experience. We stayed in the room with the 'pipe' stairs and 'pipe' bed frame which was very visually appealing. Would definitely recommend!! Also right next to the crater where you can go hiking for 1h30 to 5h or more :)

Room Tip: we stayed in the private room with the pipe bed frame and loved it - quiet and comfy and cute

Three of us stayed in the hostel on our way from Elat to Tel Aviv. Even though we only stayed one night and we arrived quite late we experienced exceptional service. Girl that welcomed us was very helpful and provided us with the essential information about different hikes/walks and other things available in the area. As we woke up very early the following morning to enjoy the views of the crater, rushing to see everything we planned and to get to the Tel Aviv before the sunset we left our stuff in the room we shared with other guests (phone and some clothes). Once we had reached the Tel- Aviv we found out about our loss. Even though I was very skeptical about contacting the hostel, my wife was determined to get her pictures from her phone back !!!!She contacted the hostel and received immediate reply that all our belongings are safe and were sent to us next day. Thank you very much Green Backpackers !!!!!!!

As a solo backpacker, this hostel was great. I stayed in a shared dorm which was cleaned daily and provided extra warmth from a hot water bottle. The living room was very nice, cool upcycled material for the couches and coffee table, nice music and always a puzzle to play with. Though the hostel doesn't provide dinner, there are restaurants in walking distance (about 15 mins) or grocery stores about the same distance, where I purchased food and made use of the kitchen in the hostel. They have great hiking recommendations and beautiful scenery around the crater and other parts of the Negev Desert!
