Golan Heights Hostel

Hostel Information:

Moshav Odem, North Golan Heights


Odem Forest reserve in the Golan heights is a stunning encounter with nature, with vineyards, apple and cherry orchards, deer that wander around freely, breath-taking landscapes, refreshing water pools and thick forests.

In a small village, up on Odem mountain, surrounded with all shapes of green (nature) and  red (volcanic), the Golan Heights Hostel is simply love at first sight, another home for you on the globe. Buzzing with travelers from around the world, it is quite common to come here for a day and stay for weeks. With perfect access to the many hiking trails from our front door, we also make a great base for outdoor activities – Cycling, Horse riding, ATV tours, and in season rappelling and rafting.

The hostel seems to attract a certain type of traveler – social, fun, respectful and adventurous with a love for the natural beauty that the area provide.

Looking forward to meet you 🙂
