Set on the edge of the striking Ramon crater, at the heart of the Negev desert, stands the very new Green Backpackers hostel.

The ‘Green’ in “The Green Backpackers” is no coincidence. We are all about sustainable tourism. We recycle all that is recyclable. Otherwise, everything is being reused.

The Green Backpackers was designed by experienced travellers and is ecologically run with all the necessities you, the traveler, might need, in mind. It is clean, warm, comfortable and close to all the important town facilities.

Fresh linens, well equipped kitchen, internet, laundry, full range of DVD’s,and most importantly – outdoor activities. From hiking & backpacking to jeep rides and repelling- all is right outside of our doorsteps.

Map & Directions:

In Order to get to Mitzpe Ramon from north, you will probably have to first get to the central bus station In Beer Sheva, as there is only one direct bus a day to Mitzpe Ramon. The direct bus (Metropolin bus No. 660) leaves Tel Aviv central bus station every week day at 16:00 and Friday at 13:00, from the 6th floor (at the end of the terminal near the food court).

In order to get to Beer Sheva, you will need to take the 370/380 bus from Tel Aviv (Metropolin or Egged company) and the 470 bus from Jerusalem.(It is faster and cheaper to take the bus than the train).

From the central bus station in Beer Sheva, you will need to  take the number 64 or 65 or 60 bus  to Mitzpe Ramon. (Metropolin and NOT Egged)

The ride takes about an hour and a half. (The 65 bus is fastest). Ask the driver to let you off  at “Har-Gamal” station (camel hill station).

From root 40, turn at the big traffic circle – into town. If you are coming from North then it will be a right turn, and from Eilat – a left turn. (This is David Ben Guryion BLV). You will pass the ‘central’ part of Mitzpe Ramon on your right.

Pass the small traffic circle (with the big rock in the middle of it) and turn left at the next turn. (Not at the traffic circle).  The left turn has a sign which is only in Hebrew, sorry. This is ‘Rehavam Zeevi st. just so you know… Then Drive to the end of the street till you get to yet another traffic circle, turn left and you will see us on your left side after about 100 meters.
