The Green Backpacker Hostel is a nice and cozy place. If You want to visit the desert, I would highly recommend to stay there. It is located on the edge of the amazing Maktesh Ramon (crater), where You can hike or just stand on the edge of the cliffs and enjoy the incredible scenery. It is also possible to get hiking gear in the hostel and the housekeeper can tell You alot about the hiking paths in the area.

We went to Mitzpe Ramon to do a trekking in the desert. The ranger of this place indicated us this new hotel and we were very pleased with it. It is pretty new and is very clean. Lee, the owner of the place, is very friendly and gives great advice about the trekkings or other activites to do. The hotel is well located (close to the crater). We really recommend this place.

It is a small hostel in a small desert town. You can walk into the crater since the hostel is right on the edge. Lee and Yoash are great hosts and know about the area. This hostel has a unique way of making you feel at home, great communal kitchen and common room, free wifi and so much more.Plan to stay for a few nights because there is a lot to see.

We stayed just one night a this amazing hostel due to our travel plans, but if we had know how the place is like before we would have definitely stayed longer!
The hostel is a warm and cozy place, that feels like coming home. The whole place is decorated with lots of love for details and a lucky hand for handicraft work. It doesn't give you the feeling of being in a hostel, it feels more like being at home at Lee's place.
Lee and Yoash were very nice and helpful, showing us hiking trails and giving us advice.
The kitchen is perfectly equipped, nothing is missing and the bathroom is so incredibly clean that it even smells like vanilla ...
We had just one thought: This hostel is too good to be true!
Highly recommended!!

I stayed only one night in TGB and now i know that was to short. Lee is great person, she helped me with everything :) In hostel you can feel great, peacefull and like in home. They have everything what you need when you travel. One of the best hostels.
And Mitzpe Ramon... thats awesome place, in the middle of desert. If you are going to Israel you HAVE to go there and stay in Green Backpackers.

Just because of this Hostel it is worth to go to Mitzpe Ramon! It is an amazing place! Its done with a lot of creativity and love for the detail! The small size makes you feel like home from the first second. The staff is super friendly and takes care of you in the best way. You will have a great time!
