Lee, her co-worker, and her volunteer Gabe made me feel very welcome. They acted both as profesionnals and as normal people having a fun time with their guests. I know Gabe went out hiking a lot with guests. The accomodation was very clean and cozy, they even have a bath! And yes, they have the incredible crater in the Negev... More

A very wel organized, inviting an accomodating hostel. An oasis in the desert during our trip through Israel. You will feel here at home. Also a lot to see in the desert and very good hiking. Had a wonderful stay here.

Though my friends and I only stayed at The Green Backpackers for one night, it was a very comfortable and easy stay. We were on our way to Midburn (the Israeli Burning man), and the hostel is just a short bus ride south of the festival. Lee was super helpful with helping us figure out transportation to and from the... More

We arrived at this hostel by bus and therefore without any clear idea of how we could explore the surrounding desert without a car. But the hostel staff were incredibly helpful and helped us planning spectacular hiking routes in no time! On top of that, everyone we ran into at this hostel was very open and friendly, the room was... More

Just as Mitzpe Ramon is a completely different place as Jerusalem of Tel Aviv, this hostel is a completely different hostel - in a very positive way. A small very clean hostel with a very nice atmosphere where you get easily in contact with other travelers. + very clean + location: 1. easy to get there with public transportation, see... More

Awesome awesome hostel-where do we start? ! The location is amazing....within km to Israeli Bike Trail head which we did early one morning as well and watched the sunrise the next just over the crater. Supermarket/post office/ATM also close by. There is plenty of space -deck, common area with TV, books, computer, kitchen etc if you need. Clean (smelling and... More

While hiking the Shvil of Israel friends recommended us this lovely place. Once arrived we knew why. We really enjoyed the familiar atmosphere! Both hosts are engaged into their work and guest's interest and make true effort to let the guests feel at home. The contact to the other guest, shared Sabbath dinner and the hiking advice topped it all... More

Israel doesn't have too many real backpacker's havens when it comes to hostels, but the Green Backpackers is definitely one! It's run by a welcoming laidback couple and is clean with great beds. It also has a tv lounge with videos, book exchange, terrace, kitchen etc, and it's right by the crater. A great place to chill for a few... More

This was by far the best hostel that I have ever been to. The owners Lee and Joash are exceptionally friendly, accomodating and knowledgeable on the area. Once they have hosted you for the weekly Shabat dinner you will quickly feel like part of their family. The hostel is intimate, clean and neat, and it is evident that Lee and... More
