Very clean rooms, very friendly atmosphere, hospitality of owners was overhelming. Free WiFi, many books in library. You can start your trip to Maktes'h Ramon just few hundreds meters from hostel. You will enjoy it!!!

The Green Backpakers hostel is an ideal place to come home to after a long hike in Makhtesh Ramon! The location of the hostel (just a short walk from the edge of the makhtesh and the Camel Mountain lookout point) is unrivaled and makes for a good starting point for a hike, a trip to the nearby visitor's center/museum, and...

Even though I had a hard time finding the place (afterwards I saw that they have give excellent instructions on their homepage, so go for that!), I felt at home immediately when I arrived. You actually can't really tell who belongs to the staff and who doesn't, which imo gives the atmosphere another extra shot of cozyness. The kitchen is...

I went there to spend two weeks in total loneliness and it was perfectly fit for it, although all the staff and also the other guests were so kind and nice, a really friendly, a real place for backpackers, so I suggest it to everyone who visits the city, and me too I want to go back again to be...

I had the distinct honor and pleasure of being the first guest at the new hostel! Although when I arrived it still looked like a construction site, within a few minutes I felt at home (and within a few hours a beautiful new hostel was born). The kitchen is fully equipped, the living room is well-kept while also feeling very...

Living in this hostel, feels like living speding time with family, without the boring parts that you usually experience with your real family back at home. I never experienced this before in a hostel, and was definately not expecting it when comming here. The green backpackers is really small place, and of course, this adds to the personalized feeling you'll...

Awesome hostel, newly renovated, clean, spacious, rooms and facilities. New, very creative, unusual, and really cool (and functional), interior design ( I am not spoiling it for you :) ). Really cozy common areas, good comfy beds, great wifi. Couldn't ask for a better location, close to pub/restaurant and the main attraction. And staff is superb! Really cool people, great...

I recently stayed at The Green Backpackers with 4 friends. It was wonderful! Despite my uncertainty, it was very easy to get to (about 500 feet away from the bus stop) in Mitspe Ramon. Although the owners were out of the country (actually in the US), the lovely couple that was running it for them couldn't have been nicer. They...

The Green Backpackers is a great place to stay at. It's clean, it has a great location, right next to the cliff above the Ramon crater, a great base for beautiful hikes in the desert, with 2 trailheads 10 minutes walk away, and an easy walk into the crater (or easy hitchhiking/driving if you want to get further away). But...
