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!

I must say that I did not stay at the Green Backpackers because their dorms were sold out, however I was impressed at the staff's willingness to provide me with information and help me find alternative accommodations, possibly with their competitors. One cool thing about the hostel is that you have to take off your shoes at the entrance (doesnt... More

A fantastic location from which to go hiking through the Negev desert and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the surroundings. The hostel has a very friendly atmosphere and the lounge and balcony are a great place to get to know fellow travellers on the balmy evenings after a day's activity. For this reason, this would be a great place... More

An outstanding hostel situated in Mitzpe Ramon. Very nice and cosy with lovely staff and great use of recycling for the construction of tables, lockers (old ammo crates!) etc. Yosah is a wonderful host with a mean cocktail!! Very clean and tidy and just generally a great place. Highly recommend !!!
