Reviewed 1 March 2017

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 nice people. We had a great experience. We stayed in the room with the 'pipe' stairs and 'pipe' bed frame which was very visually appealing. Would definitely recommend!! Also right next to the crater where you can go hiking for 1h30 to 5h or more :)

Room Tip: we stayed in the private room with the pipe bed frame and loved it - quiet and comfy and cute

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 early the following morning to enjoy the views of the crater, rushing to see everything we planned and to get to the Tel Aviv before the sunset we left our stuff in the room we shared with other guests (phone and some clothes). Once we had reached the Tel- Aviv we found out about our loss. Even though I was very skeptical about contacting the hostel, my wife was determined to get her pictures from her phone back !!!!She contacted the hostel and received immediate reply that all our belongings are safe and were sent to us next day. Thank you very much Green Backpackers !!!!!!!

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 in walking distance (about 15 mins) or grocery stores about the same distance, where I purchased food and made use of the kitchen in the hostel. They have great hiking recommendations and beautiful scenery around the crater and other parts of the Negev Desert!

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 in Israel! Just by sharing, talking, laughing and being. We did Kidush together, shared wine and Chala (Shabat bread), and thanks to the environment of the Green Backpackers hostel, we felt like a family.
The place was clean, the double room was comfortable and cozy, the kitchen is well facilitated- everything we can wish for and even more.
Thank you for creating a home in Mitzpe Ramon for us, to come from time to time
