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...

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...

Great owners, took lots of their time to orient us to the area, food options, hikes, the hostel itself. Great atmosphere, games, books, puzzles. Nice people all around, super environmentally conscious, cheap beer!

What a lovely little hostel, the staff are lovely, the beds are comfy and the desert is right outside the front door. We spent three days hiking in the crater and around Mitzpe Ramon and tbh e advice we got from Lee, the manager, was on point. Highly recommended hostel

Stayed here with a friend for one night while traveling down south. It's a small and cosy hostel next to the crater. The staff was very friendly and helpfull, helping us out on what to see in the area. The hostel itself is pretty basic, breakfast and towels not included, but the ambiance was perfect!

I stayed at the hostel for a total of 5 days this summer. I had gone originally with a friend for a couple days of hiking, and I returned for the weekend and stretched out my stay as long as I could. The first thing I noticed was how quiet and peaceful it was. It is located directly across the...
