I slept in many hostels, but so far this is really my favorite! The staff is super friendly and helpfull; every day they check if you have questions about hikes or other stuff you want to do. The hostel has a perfect location and easy to reach (check the website for detailed travel directions). It is a perfect place to...

I stayed 3 nights at the Green Backpackers. It was perfect! Clean, great staff, perfect location to hike the Ramon Crater. The staff will give you all the info about hikes in the area. A very comfy, homey atmosphere. The only thing I would say as a "negative" is that it is very expensive to wash clothes there.

Thanks a lot for your great review and for taking the time to post it. We do really appreciate it and don't take this for granted. We are happy to hear that we managed to help you explore and hike in the Ramon crater and that you enjoyed your time here. I am sorry for the price of the laundry....

Its location is excellent for everything, just in front of the bus stop, 4 min walk to the edge of the crater and excellent view of the sunset. The staff is really helpful and professional they know about the desert and its hike tracks all around. The hostel feels like home its really cozy and its always clean.

Lovely cozy hostel. Staff and owners were very helpful and took the time to explain the different hiking trails. Excellent facilities, super clean and nice atmosphere. The hostel is located next to the Ramon crater with many hiking trails. The nature around Mitspe Ramon is just stunning and I really enjoyed my stay there.

This place is definitely the best hostel I've been in Israel! It feels like home, the staff is super friendly and the atmosphere super comfortable. The rooms are spacious and very clean, the same goes for the bathrooms! I looked the idea that for little money you can make your breakfast from their supplies (bread, spreads, cornflakes, milk, coffee, tea...)...

Right next to the bus stop you'll see a place which at first doesn't look like much, but as soon as you're inside it feels like home. It's not a big crowded place which makes it easily to cook or eat outside and chill. The staff is really friendly and helps finding the perfect trail for you. You should definitly...

It was a wonderful experience. Shabbat was approaching and we weren't sure what to do, so we just took a bus to Mitzpe Ramon that dropped us off right in front of the hostel, and we just booked on the spot. The staff was so friendly, the people staying there as well, it was a perfect stop on our adventure....

My friend found this hostel to stay at in Mitzpe Ramon and we had a fantastic two-night stay. The staff is exceedingly knowledgeable about the area and hiking. They are obviously passionate about the area and their hostel. If you're thinking of going hiking someplace in Israel, I highly recommend Mitzpe Ramon and the Green Backpackers hostel.

We had the best two days here, entering this amazing hostel you immediately feel very welcome, the volunteer Emily was just the nicest person to chat to and always helpful. Everyone should visit and experience the cleanest hostel ever, you could have eaten from the floor. The hiking tours around and the scenery are breathtaking...
