The hostel is well located, near the crater and a bus stop, and the welcome friendly. However, I did not like the atmosphere: there were only young German couples or fellows in this hostel (I guess this hostel must be very famous in Germany to attract so many people of the same nationality) aged about 20 y.o. So it was quite difficult to communicate or simply exchange with others due to the language and cultural barrier, and age difference also... But on their side, they seemed to be satisfied.


no wlan problems , clean , friendly ....5 minutes to the highest point ... was great ;-)


Great experience on the border of a city and a desert.


was greeted by the friendliest host ever. felt at home and welcomed not only to the place but to Israel as well


My favourite small hostel so far! Great location and AMAZING staff. Wish I could have stayed longer and I miss you all :)


very homy and really nice place. The owner answers all your questions if you want to explore the region.

Little, cozy hostel, very close to the rim of the Makhtesh crater. Staff was friendly and helpful, and very knowledgeable of hiking trails in the area.. Perfect place to explore the desert from!


great place ,location is great ,staff is great a++++++++++


Nice place to stay for some hiking. The staff are very helpful in planning and suggesting hiking trails. Very clean and very comfortable. One word of warning for guests planning to stay in Mitzpe Ramon: If you arrive late Thursday, there is very little transport out of town until Sunday.
