Very nice people. Good value for money. Quite big room. Nice garden. Vegetarian family. We did "one day - one night" camel safari there : well organised, we were just the two of us with 3 camel men. Half-day on camel could have been sufficient for us, but still a great experience to sleep in desert ! Do not expect... More

We stayed in this hostel for three nights and fully enjoyed it! The owner was not there at the time, but both his son and wife speak great English and were very helpful. We organised a pick up at the train station and he was on time, even though the train was 20 minutes early. It felt like a warm... More

The guest house is ok, the rooms are clean and the staff is nice but the camel safari is just a touristic attraction: no desert just countryside, no loneliness, no beautiful places. The owner looks like Umberto Smaila (Italian readers will understand) but he is ok!

The guesthouse is basic but clean and nice enough. Owners were friendly UNTIL we said we weren't interested in the safari tour. We had some very good reasons for not being interested in the safari tour, and even if we didn't: a decent guesthouse owner should respect this. All we heard about is how great their tour was and they... More

We booked in here predominantly to take the camel safari with Vijay (Camel man) what a surprise to find the rooms really nice and clean and well kept, good hot shower and a real family style dining experience. To the last Vijay was ever the host.....getting up early and waiting for the bus with us to ensure we caught the... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights after a hotel in the center was too noisy for us. This one has a calm atmosphere and has some green grass too! The rooms are nice and clean and a very reasonable price. We also got towles. Wifi doesn't work in the rooms and sometimes it doesn't work in the common... More

Coming to the end of our stay and we can honestly say we're gonna miss this place. The staff are all welcoming and extremely helpful. Helping us with visiting the attractions to finding us a phone to make a emergency phone call home. It's been a home from home. Thanks to everyone there for making our stay so special. We... More

Has wifi and amazing chai :-) check out time is 10am and we weren't told of that so that would of been nice but besides... More
