Property Information:

If you’re looking for a warm place in the cold desert’s winter or a cool place in the hot desert’s summer, this is the place for you. Jump straight into the desert’s spirit with a cup of our famous tea (or coffee if you prefer) and a unique atmosphere of fun, great food, music, and adventure.

Nestled by a beautiful herb garden in the heart of Mitzpe Ramon, our tents holds up to 12 people, equipped with mattresses, clean sheets, warm blankets, and pillows free of charge. We also have several musical instruments for those who love a good jam session, and a barbeque grill for the perfect social atmosphere. Inside the house, we have dormitories available for anyone who prefers to sleep indoors, as well as two shared bathrooms and kitchen.

Here, we can offer you two experienced locals (and one excellent chef) who want to share their passion for the desert with you. Book a camel or donkey tour, a half-day jeep tour, a deep desert overnight stay, a gourmet desert dinner, sky-gazing, or a hiking tour. Our chef here can also offer you a home-cooked desert breakfast or dinner for a surcharge, the perfect way to top off this desert paradise.

This kind of desert spirit is not something you can find at any ordinary hostel. We invite you to stay with us and quench your thirst for adventure.

    We arrived and the whole place was first of all not to be found because it was pitchblack... after being guided by locals and going inside, we had to wait quite a while until the door was opened by a guy who was apparantly high.. After seeing the inside which was shabby and altogether not trustworthy, we left and stayed somewhere else.
