Directions to The Green Backpackers
By Bus from Beer Sheva -
Take the number 60 or 65 bus from Beer Sheva to Mitzpe Ramon. (Metropolin and NOT Egged)
Get off at 'Nahal Sirpad' stop, called also 'Har Gamal' (camel hill) Station. If the bus driver does not know it, just tell
him that it is two stops stop AFTER the caf. Neto. (If he still doesn't know it, then he shouldn't be driving this bus�)

You will be able to see the hostel very clearly as it is situated right in front of the bus stop, so don't get off the bus till
you see us on your left.
We are the brown & green house left of the bus stop.

(Some of the bus drivers don't know the town and will try to tell you to get off at the wrong station, so just be patient and wait till you see us, on your left)

By Bus from Eilat �
You will need to get off at the station in the center of town. You will come up to Mitzpe Ramon out of the crater and the bus stop is immediately after you come off the traffic circle. That is the 'central' part of Mitzpe Ramon. If you need to take out money from the bank or buy food, then you might want to do it then in order to save the walk back there later...

From there you need to walk on the main street (David Ben Guryion) towards west... (The bank and all should be on
your right and the big traffic circle should be at your back).

Walk straight and pass one junction and then a small traffic circle, keep walking straight (do not turn at the traffic circle) and then you should take your first left turn. This is 'Rehavam Zeevi' st. but the sign is only in Hebrew�

Pass the big gym on your left and the high school on your right.
Go to the end of that street were you will find yet another small traffic circle and turn left.
You will see us on your left after a few more meters� The top of the building is painted Green.


By Car �
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 st.)
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. This is 'Rehavam Zeevi' st. but the sign is only in Hebrew.
Pass the big gym on your left and the high school on your right.
Go to the end of that street were you will find yet another small traffic circle and turn left. You will see us on your left after a few more meters� The top of the building is painted Green.
