Walk to showers and toilets
Great alternative accomodation. Mud huts were very cosy at night and comfortable in the day. Location is incredible. And the feeling of the environment they have set up with communal area and seating looking over the desert is great.
I knew it was more like a camping, but I choose it because of the situation on the border of the Ramon Crater.
I forgot nights are cold in "winter", even in Israel, even in the desert...
Location, common area
some hooks Pegs on the wall would be helpful
location, desert feeling, spectacular views, tents, star gazing, staff, mountain bike rental, their red wine, their breakfast
mattresses not so comfortable, no pillow cases, shower and bathroom (shared) very old, but always hot water
Perfect location for exploring the crater. This place was the most atmospheric and interesting accomodation during our stay in Israel. What you book is a kind of a little "house" or tent (which is actually a clay hut) with matresses. You get blankets and also sheets for your bed, bringing an own little pillow is recommended though. We slept really well and were surprised how cosy the room was. Toilets and washing rooms are outside in a different building. It's a bit like on a camping site...There's also a large common room/building and a self-catering kitchen. You can buy some drinks (beer, wine etc.) in the common room. Breakfast was also great and worth the price. Very nice owners and staff. Familiar atmosphere. Don't expect a hotel. ;-) If you know what you can expect it is great! And it is surely one of the best places to watch the sunrise in the morning...There's also some places to eat nearby.
You cannot lock the door of the room, so you have to carry your valuables with you.
Loved the location and watching the sunrise each morning. The simplicity and laid back atmosphere makes this place most enjoyable and the communal lounge area is a relaxing place to end your day. Thanks Maya and Ziv for being great hosts.
Very authentic place, right at the edge of the crate with a stunning view. Very friendly people and a unique experience. Simple but I liked it a lot.
The beds are very short. Even at 5'11" my head was half off the mattress and my feet on the wall. If you are two people, request sheets for the third mattress, then at least you can sleep in the cross direction...
Th view on the crater is amazing and the cottages very cozy and nice. Basic but beautiful.
The location and design if the place is beautiful. Blends into nature. Perfect for people who like this style of accommodation.great atmosphere ,-bikers, hikers, families.
The place tried to charge us more than our original reservation. The staff wasn't always available.
Amazing view, nice room, friendly atmosphere,... good place
Noisy couple next door, we were feeling in the same room
First thing you see when you arrive on the location is the breathtaking view on the dert mountains. The scupture park is also right in front of you. Ledo from the reception was very helpful and friendly and made me feel at home immediately. I had planned to stay one night, but then made it three. The little mud huts are very charming and there is always a kettle of fresh made mint tea in the meeting room. I really loved this place.
I have two places I stay when I go to mizpeh, both with their own charms. I enjoy the location of desert shade; incredible view of the canyon. It's like camping, but with the conveniences of electricity and a bed. Very rustic.
The problem I've had here, however, has been the owners. They are not very flexible or accommodating, and I feel I'm not a paying customer, but an inconvenient house guest. I believe their focus is more on groups than individual travelers. But, the accommodations are like camping but with a bed and electricity, and the view can't be beat for the price. I would certainly recommend it.
If you like the green concepts and the way of life among the bedouins. This hotel is little bit far from the urban life and you can hear the sounds of wind in the desert and the feelings of sands on your face, hair when you live in this place.The owner is a nice guy who lives near this hostel.
It's not a 24-hour hostel so when I go there at 8.pm the sky was totally dark. I felt a little bit scary when I went along the road to the hostel because there's no light in this 300-meter road, but it's quite interesting.
Great location Friendly staff Great wine Amazing landscape
No food available (except breakfast), had to get everything from the supermarket
Amazing location. Helpful staff.
I had to pay in cash and was not advised if this. The kitchen was very basic.
Great place. Awesome location
Ambiance, really relaxed with nice people and great environment: view on Maktesh Ramon.
Showers can be better
- view - very friendly stuff - silence - cabbages
everything was great, one of the best stay ever
Perfect location a few minutes walk from the edge of the crater The free-flowing sweet mint tea at the lodge, self use kitchen.
The room did not have a means to lock it, forcing us to walk around with our valuables all day. There is no possibility to pay by credit card. You can pay in euros, but not very favorable rate
Incredible views of the Ramon Crater from your cabin, lovely hostess Maya and the sense of a back-to-basics community. What a fantastic place, highly recommended!
Nothing. It was even better than expected!
Special place with mud-buildings, a primitive, back to basics look and very relaxed. Reminds one of Mad Max.
getting diner in the town isn't easy in the off-season.
Absolute great experience. The huts are wonderful, very clean and well kept. The location - unbeatable. The staff incredibly sweet and helpful. Highly recommended place!
While it is normal that with the style of an ecolodge the comfort is not comparable to a five-star feather bed, it was nevertheless a bit of a pity that the mattresses are too short. Just okay for myself (1m64), but way too uncomfortable for my friend (1m76)
Everything! highly recommended.
Excellent location right in front of the crater and within walking distance to town. The lodges are charming and exactly what to expect from a desert camp. Very beautiful reception/common area with a great view. Definitely recommend it and would go back!
