The place is a guesthouse and also an English Tea Room, with scones and cream and homemade jam. The tea ceremony is a charm, and everything was very tasty. We shall be back again, when we are around (though we heard the rooms are very nice, as well).

The “English” room was spacious, the bed was big and comfortable, the kitchen well equipped with dishes, fridge, gas top & microwave, windows overlooking ‘our’ private patio, very good and strong shower with plenty of hot water, excellent breakfast served on attractive, ceramic dishes, including fresh cut salad, cheeses, omelets, dates, nuts, olives & homemade jams. The patio has a little fishpond, a hammock, table & chairs, very relaxing. Marion was helpful providing suggestions for hikes & things to do nearby. It is a few minutes’ walk to the cliff top overlooking Nahal Zin, with wild Ibex roaming around & great location for touring the Negev. We also had the “English Tea Party” which was very tasty and a fun experience. The room and breakfast area are a hodgepodge of English touches and local features & while comfortable, the outside areas especially are rather weather beaten.

It's a lovely place. We were there for just 1 night but wished to stay more. Both John and Marion are great hostesses. The breakfast was great! Room and facility in great order and high standard ובעברית: מקום מצויים עם שירות מקסים . החדרים מעוצבים בטוב טעם וארוחת הבוקר הייתה מעולה

My friend and I had such a wonderful stay at Krivine. We found the guesthouse through Marion's *fantastic* blog, visitingnegev.com. The blog was a huge help in planning our trip. We arrived at Krivine late and John picked us up at the bus. It was freezing outside but the room was bright and warm. The bed was extremely comfortable: a mattress not too firm nor too soft, nice linens and blankets. Great water pressure and plenty of hot water in the shower. Well-stocked kitchen with everything we needed. We had dinner at the pub (less than 5 minutes' walk). The pizza was mediocre but the salads were delicious. The next morning we had such a lovely and delicious breakfast with John (try every one of his homemade jams!). It was great chatting with him and Marion. John gave me excellent hiking recommendations and directions how to get to Ein Avdat National Park. The hospitality here is simply superb: before I went out for my hike, John told me if I couldn't back to call him. I did, and he was there in less than 10 minutes, saving me a 7km walk back. No one was checking in, so we were able to keep our room until our late afternoon bus. John kindly drove us to the bus and also told us how to hitchhike, and we were successful in getting a lift. Staying at Krivine was SO much better than staying at a hotel, and John and Marion are absolutely wonderful hosts. Highly recommend for Sde Boker/Midreshet Ben Gurion.

We stayed in three different places in Israel and by far this was my favorite. from its eclectic vibe to its location and the hosts were amazing, the Israeli breakfast was great! we enjoyed chatting with the other guests around the breakfast table. when you walk outside there is an amazing view and the air was so clean I wanted to stay forever.
