Arriving in the night to gaze at the stars, this place was all prepared for all my wishes. Daniella was immediately showing me the best routes and the darkest places to check out them stars. Also in the morning I was properly advised which routes I could take. Also for your follow up there was all the information you wish.... More

Probably my favorite hostel ever. If you are coming to Mitzpe Ramon you need to stay here. The hostel is situated right on the crater near an amazing lookout point and lots of trails. The owners, Lee and Yoash are very helpful, relaxed and caring. Lee and Yoash basically planned all of my hikes for me and gave me a... More

Lee and Yoash are great hosts: extremely, helpful and easy going. The place is magical: in the middle of the desert. Very quiet and peaceful. We'll definitely come back. Thank you guys and Shana- Tova! Noa and Bibi.

Yoash and Lee are wonderful people that make their hostel into your home. And the hostel is about the cleanest I've ever seen, maintained with lots of love and care. Hiking the desert, even in the middle of the summer, is possible, if you give it an early start. The recommendation of Yoash was excellent. Thank you so much, we'll... More

The perfect choice to stay if you feel like exploring and experiencing the desert. Yoash and Lee are very nice and helpful people who are always there for you to give you advice of any kind :) Nice hiking trips around are definitely worth trying even at the expence of a good sleep(you have to start early) ;) Home-like atmosphere...

This is definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed in! You feel like home with friends, but with the service and care of a 5-star hotel. Lee, Yoash and the volunteers are incredibly helpful and quickly become your friends, all the tips for the area and Israel from them are just spot on. Went to Mitzpe Ramon for the... More

We can defintly recommend staying with Lee and Yoash. We had a very nice and super room. You shouldn't miss Yoash's sunset-walks and the homemade cocktail afterwards! Lee gives you all information about hiking trails in the area you'll need for trips in the crater.

Although my stay here was quick, I was impressed with how this hostel was run. The atmosphere was fun, funky and clean and what backpackers seem to be looking for: Great kitchen, clean bathrooms, great laundry set up, and recommendations for hikes and food. And at a good price. Spot on!
