Great spot and great location. Rooms are basic but is great value for what your paying. I would have problems staying here again if I come back to jaisalmer. Raghu is a really great and friendly man with great coffee

The rooms were simple but very clean. There is a nice restaurant upstairs that serves great food at any hour (we had Rajasthani dishes - ker sangri and govind gatta which were very good), and there is a kitchen downstairs where you can also cook your own food for free. Raghu and Shiva are both very friendly and helpful, and... More

When we stayed at this guesthouse, some guests were drinking in the roof top cafe and shouting till midnight so couldn't sleep well. Hot water is so less if you come to winter season. And don't book camelsafari here. the guesthouse offers camel safari run by another travel agency so it's better and cheaper to ask tour to any travel... More

Laid-back guesthouse in the ancient sandstone fort of Jaisalmer. The breezy rooftop is the excellent setting to relax all day. The WIFI is really good up there! They also serve good food at democratic prices and the 'real Italian coffee' is the best i had in India. The owner and staff are genuine friendly people and always ready for fun... More

I just buy from them ticket to udaipur and they save my packages for free and give me hot shower. They are very nice people and good there very good. I just watch the rooms and I can say they are very clean and good value for money.
