Colorful, spacious and clean dormitories and privates provide a good night of sleep after your adventures of the day. A well equipped communal kitchen, clean shared bathrooms, cosy lounge, big terrace with BBQ, garden, music instruments, 2nd hand clothes shop and free coffee and (herbal) tea create a great atmosphere to chill and meet other travelers.
Every morning there’s FREE Pancake Breakfast! We’re centrally located in Katzrin, next to the Yehudiya Nature Reserve, one of the most beautiful and all-round nature reserves of the North. Magnificent world-class hiking trails start right from the hostel, taking you through canyons with waterfalls, natural pools and archaeological sites.
Hiking and camping gear are for rent. Hiking maps are provided for FREE! Other adventurous outdoor activities at the Golan Garden Hostel include: Canyoning through waterfalls and pools, Horse riding, Mountain biking, ATV riding, Kayaking and Rafting. We love helping you out planning these activities for you!
Combine your outdoor adventures with a wine tasting at local and exclusive wineries of the Golan, a visit to cheese farms, the local beer brewery, olive oil press and chocolate factory. Take a dip in the Sea of Galilee, have lunch at one of the Druze villages, see Syria from a look-out and have some more Hummus as the local restaurant...there is plenty to do!
The Golan Garden Hostel is run by two well-traveled nature lovers who can’t wait to show you another side of Israel...the beautiful Golan Heights. So grab your bag and let your adventure begin!
We’re easy to reach with direct buses from Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Tiberias!
