A super clean and comfortable room with all the necessary facilities and great atmosphere! Lee recommended us on a brilliant hike which made our visit to the desert unforgettable. We'll definitely be back!

It's a very small and familiar hostel – the desert is beautiful to hike and Lee or someone else of the hostel staff helps you to plan your trips very precisley. The hostel is clean and cozy and the people are just great.

The hostel is very small, so the atmosphere is very friendly and familiar. The living room is super cozy, the kitchen very clean and you find everything you need for cooking and breakfast (breakfast is 10 NIS). Also our dorm room was very clean, simple but comfortable. All in all, this was the cleanest hostel I ever stayed in! The...

My girlfriend and I spent one night in a double room at the Green Backpackers Hostel after the last bus to Eilat left us stranded. The owners of the hostel had given us great advise for camping spots the night before. Remembering their help and the overall impression of their establishment, we decided to spend a night there. It is...

This was my first hostel. We took a private room, so not the full experience, but you have to start somewhere! We were in the alternate building down the street, which was clean and quiet. Fortunately one night we were the only people in the building and the other two nights we had very quiet neighbors. I think that the...

This is a super cute small hostel with few rooms and a living room and kitchen space which creates community! We were there in the winter when the evenings consisted of everyone sitting around the fireplace, talking, drawing, laughing, eating, drinking and completing a group puzzle together. This place attracts nice people to, all the volunteers and other backpackers were...

Three of us stayed in the hostel on our way from Elat to Tel Aviv. Even though we only stayed one night and we arrived quite late we experienced exceptional service. Girl that welcomed us was very helpful and provided us with the essential information about different hikes/walks and other things available in the area. As we woke up very...

As a solo backpacker, this hostel was great. I stayed in a shared dorm which was cleaned daily and provided extra warmth from a hot water bottle. The living room was very nice, cool upcycled material for the couches and coffee table, nice music and always a puzzle to play with. Though the hostel doesn't provide dinner, there are restaurants...

As Israelis, we always went to hotels in Israel, and for the first time we experienced a HOSTEL in our country, truly- we're surprised how much fun is it! The different perspective to come as a tourist to a hostel, speak with tourists from Germany, Poland, etc. how curious they were, how much impact we have as Israelis - here...
