    It was my second times staying at desert shade and I love it. The only thing I would add is a microwave and toaster in the kitchen and a few more dishes to use.

    The place is great!Mitzpe Ramon was not on our plans originally,but it remained one of the highlights of the trip.Desert Shade is on the edge of the city, calm and peaceful where you can watch the moon rising from the crater,walk along the edge of the crater for nice views and stunning sunsets. The facilities are all there-hot showers, kitchen, heaters/fans in the rooms in case you get cold or hot.Only possible drawback might be wifi only in common area,but who needs it with the views like that!

    Lovelys little retreat, I had the perfect time to shortly get away from the daily routine. During my stay there were not many other guests which added to the feeling. Mitzpe Ramon has been my favorite travel destination in Israel overall.

    Most beautiful place I’ve seen for a hostel. Really good view of the dessert. However I found the girl working there a little bit unfriendly and rude and it’s not a very social hostel.

    Pluses - location, right near the edge of the canyon & only 10 mins walk from the centre of town. Large, spacious dorm & very quiet. Minuses - the toilets & showers are in another building a few mins walk from the dorm (not much fun in the middle of a freezing cold winter's night) & supposedly the wi-fi only works in the common/dining room, although one night it actually did work in the dorm. Not much atmosphere for a solo traveller, mostly families and couples there. No lock on the dorm door.
