Lovely place, in a beautiful, peaceful and relaxing location. Very clean and with a beautiful patio. Owners and staff are amazing, they will make you feel part of a big family. They will tell you all the details about activities and attractions of Mitzpe Ramon!

Really nice hostel with a lovely position. The small patio that face the desert is perfect to relax and enjoy the stunning view. Perfect base to discover the desert: day or night (amazing sunset and star gazing). The owners are really nice, welcoming and super helpful. Clean and cozy!! Definitely a place to stay. Great idea the shared Shabbat dinner:... More

The Green Backpackers was my first stop in Israel. I had never been to Israel before, and the owners, Lee and Yoash, made me feel so at home and welcome. In the morning, I took their Jeep tour through the Negev. This tour was absolutely incredible and very informative. The Maktesh and Negev desert were so beautiful, and Yoash was... More

I stayed at this hostel 2 nights, if you want to see the desert and have a friendly, clean, comfortable place to stay, stay there. The owner is very friendly and helpful. He runs multiple tours on the side for free or at a bargain price depending what tour it is.

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
