I didn't know I could be so comfortable in a place so soon after arriving. The staff and guests are so friendly and inviting that everyone becomes friends after only a few minutes of meeting. I also got a ton of advice about hikes and views and ended up hiking the Shen Ramon trail (which was incredible). I wish I...

Green Backpackers is a fabulous place to stay. The staff is welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful . The facilities are very nice, clean, comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen. My husband and I had a private room with en suite bath, possibly the only one they have, but they do have other private rooms with a shared bath. The room, was...

This hostel is a must if staying in Mitzpe and you are wanting to hike or relax. It is very quiet in the day and people around in the evening to talk to. It is opposite the bus stop and also has car parking. The staff are super friendly and will give lots of hiking advice. The hike across the...

I stayed there one night even though I wanted to stay more. I felt really welcommed there. Everything is very clean. The location is perfect. I just regret that they were so worried about seeing me hiking that they didnt give me so good advice for my first day but I guess they dont trust foreigners going to the desert...

We stayed here for a few nights in April 2017. Out of all the hostels we stayed in on our trip around Israel The Green backpackers was my favourite by far. We were delayed by 7 hours on our bus to Mizpe Ramon and the lovely staff in the green backpackers stayed up late to let us in and also...

We've been here twice and love this place - fun vibe yet serious about cleanliness and professionalism, quirky designs, great options to hang out with friendly people over puzzles and beer but also chill in a quiet spot or walk two minutes to the mesmerizing view of the crater, staff gave us excellent hike recommendations that were tailored exactly to...

The place is so chilled out and relaxed that you will feel like home. The people working there are super nice guys willing to help you in feeling comfortable and in suggesting the best things to see around Mitzpe-Ramon. The whole space is clean, eco-friendly, equipped with all you could possibly need and honestly the best hostel I've ever been...

We arrived late at night after one of our backpacks got lost on the bus ride. Lee and her staff did everything possible to get it back, calmed us down and made us feel at home. They also gave us personalised and suitable hiking advise and even lent us hats and bags for the hikes since we were totally unprepared....
