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.

This hostel is situated in a perfect location if you want to visit the desert. The owner provides all the information that you need to explore the area. She will advise where to go and what sights are the best to visit. The hostel has a good flow...you just want to come back there.

While on exchange at Tel Aviv University, a group of friends and I took a weekend trip to Mitzpe Ramon. Green Backpackers provided us with a clean, comfortable, and cozy stay. The location was great for us - situated right beside the Camel Rock observatory, we spent our first afternoon there watching the sun go down over the crater. Important...

Great place to stay in a special place in Israel. The host was extremely friendly and helpful in organising walks and explaining all the ins and out. The hostel is very clean with nice lounge and terrace to hang out. We stayed in the annexe, a bit away from the main hostel, which was quiet and cosy.

I stayed in this hostel 4 nights and loved it from the first sight - the common room is clean and cosy with lots of books and games. There is a small clean kitchen and rooms next to it. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. This hostel is really small and that's why it's perfect to get to know...

Stayed two nights and found a great home away from home. Clean place to stay, well decorated. Great people and vibes in the common area and also very helpful showing us where to go for hikes, a free sunset tour, and an amazing star show at night in the middle of the desert. Highly recommended.
