Although I spent there only two nights I've already managed to feel the spirit of the place and take advantage of incredible hospitality, kindness and helpfullness of Lee and... More

Loved this place. It was really clean including the bathrooms with a fully equipped kitchen. Very welcoming even for older travelers like us, twice the age of the other guests. Plus a good source of information about hiking and other things to do in the area.

We stayed in Green Backpackers only one night, but it was sure great. Staff is super friendly and helpful, overall atmosphere in the place is warm and welcoming. We stayed there on the first day of Hanukkah celebration, when Yoash sang a special Hanukkah song and lights the candle on his own recyclated eco-friendly menorah. Surely nice experience.

Friendly staff who were really helpful - they gave me the bus timetables and maps for hiking in the crater. The atmosphere was fun and the hostel was clean. Small things such as a hot water bottle (it get really cold at night) are appreciated. Mitzpe Ramon is an interesting place which I would definitely recommend visiting.
