We are a unique guest house in the lovely Israeli desert, right by Macktesh Ramon (Ramon Crater) and the town of Mitzpe Ramon.
We offer authentic tent accommodation, private domes, camping for backpackers and inspirational workshops, all just a few minutes’ walk from all the services you need in town (bank, supermarket, clinic, etc.)
The atmosphere is all about living 'Out Doors'. It is really cold in the winter, and hot in the summer - although the desert weather makes everything nicer:)
Other then solar light and a little charger for phones, there is no electricity in the site.
Clean and organized toilets and showers are available with hot water 24/7.
The work is basically welcoming the guests, showing them around, being there for any help or questions, and always keeping the place nice and clean.
Work is around 6 hours a day, but because guests come and go, sometimes we have a lot of work, and other times it is quite as only the desert can be...
Usually we are talking about 2 hours in the morning and 4 in the evening, but it's dynamic.
When there is nothing to do, you are free to travel, play, meet people and enjoy nature, or even to take some creative projects on the site - gardening, painting etc. But when there are lots of people - usually on the weekends, we DO EXPECT you to work hard.
Although the town is very small, you can find a lot of cool and unique places, including some coffee shops, art warehouses, ceramic workshop, a jazz club, travel agencies, an amazing bakery, etc.
We offer the volunteers a private dome or a tent (maybe sharing it with other volunteers, depending on the availability), but you can actually sleep anywhere you want. We also supply the food!
We ask you to come for a minimum period of 2 weeks, considering, of course, that both sides are happy:)
