Went on a camelsafari through Shiva and was promised a room when we came back. But when we did so, he didn't have a functioning room and said "it's not my problem". No, but a deal is a deal right!? The only room he had did he overcharge, wifi wasn't working and water poured everywhere in the bathroom! Instead I... More

We booked a camelsafari through the Shiva guesthouse and agreed with Shiva to stay at the place when we came back from our safari. But when we came back the price we had agreed upon the day before was now higher. The room we was shown was in another building, and when the neighbor to our room turned on the... More

Been there with a large group of friends and had a very good time. Friendly staff and good food. The cafe is a nice place to hangout and meet people. Got hot water and a warm bed to sleep. And yes very cheap.

Stayed with shiva for 4 days over new year 2015 when jaisalmer is packed with tourists. Despite lots of places hiking up prices, found Shiva was very fair and was like a quiet home inside the fort, very simple yet comfortable with the nicest staff. The upstairs area overlooks a quiet street where you can see day to day life,... More

I stayed at Shiva Guesthouse for 2 nights prior to setting off on a camel safari for Christmas 2015. Prior to leaving, our entire group confirmed (on more than one occasion) that we would be returning to the Guesthouse and required accommodation. When we got back from our safari, my reservation was mysteriously lost and my room had been sold... More

We came just to eat something and end up moving to the room in the first floor the day after. The food is good, the place, the people are very nice. Raghu and Shiva are one of the few peope you find in india that they are truly honest from the first moment. If you want to spend few days... More

Well, me and a couple of friends stayed at Shiva's place for 4 days that were separated by a 2 day camel safari that he organised for us. We stayed at the two rooms above the cafe. The rooms were big and clean and as a very pleasant surprise, decorated with a lot of taste. No rooftop view, but you;ll... More
