The Hostel

Desert Shade Eco-Camp located on the front row to the best views of the Negev desert. Now budget travelers as well can enjoy these great views and wake up to the magical sunrise over the Ramon Crater.


We created a special area inside the Eco-Camp designed especially for backpackers. Common areas, shared kitchen, dorm rooms, bonfire spots and much more.

We also offer information on all that you can explore and experince in the desert around us.

Come and join us in our hostel on the rim of the crater...

Due to COVID-19 dormitory is unavailable. Please read our "Purple Badge" guidelines

Hostel World

In the Dormitory:

  • 8 single bed

  • A radiator is provided - after all, it is cold 900 meters above sea level.

  • Bedding: pillows, sheets and blankets

  • Low lighting in the desert atmosphere

  • 220V power outlet

  • Shared showers and toilets in a central building

  • Shared kitchen for all guests right next to the room.

Bring Your Own Tent

Come and reconnect with nature!

Just bring your own tent and favorite camping equipment and settle down for the night on our organized camping site with one of the best views of the stunning Ramon Crater.

Calmping is what we call “calmly camping in nature” - if you don't have your own tent and still want to reconnect with nature, our Calmping tents are the perfect option!

Several family tents are set in shelters protected from the wind and sun so that all you need to do is to come and enjoy some camping with one of the best views around.
