“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Everybody arriving in Jaisalmer will find cheaper rooms than at Dylan’s, but nowhere else you will find such an honest and trustful owner: Cheap rooms are always combined with expensive and expensive Safari offers - and almost everybody is coming for a safari...
At Dylan’s I never had the feeling that they wanted to sell me something, quite the contrary they recommended me to go just one and half a day than two days, because I've been there during the very hot season. Thanks for the honesty!

I'm writing a second review of Dylan's Cafe and Guesthouse because it has moved locations since last summer when I was there so this is a reference for the current building. Things that are the same: budget hotel, well located near to Ghandi Chowk (2 minute walk from old location), awesome & trustworthy owner (which can be hard to find in India!!), clean rooms, and beautiful fort views. The main difference is that this hotel is larger with more options for rooms including a couple a\c rooms and a dormitory. This place continues to be a chill place with good vibes and comfortable rooms!

Rajiv and Om are very friendly and funny guys. Staying in the Dylan Guesthouse is a real backpacker experience you don't find so often in India. The roof terrace is a great spot to hang out with other travelers, chill out and read a book or listen to music form the large database of MP3's. It is all possible. I highly recommend the place, especially if you are lookig for a nice social environment. .

Rajiv is the man. The guest house was excellent. I cannot say enough good things about Dylan.

I couldn't imagine staying anywhere better.

Only downside was the shower, but you get more than you pay for.

Hola to the guys at Dylan Cafe,

This place has a lot of great reviews and we agree this place really is fantastic.

THE PLACE

Delicious food, cheap, clean, comfortable, laid back, safe, good location, simple but beautiful interior decor and an awesome rooftop with terrific views.

THE STAFF

Great hosts, friendly, polite, respectful,helpful, caring, not pushy at all. A special appreciation to the humble chef Abdul we thought his food was some of the best we ate throughout India especially his Paneer Masala, Naan and Chai.

If your looking for a place in India to meet some great down to earth local guys with all the added benefits of a fantastic place to stay and eat then this is the place. We only have great memories of Dylan Cafe and it was a pleasure to be a guest in their house.

Thank you Grace and Felipe

Service that goes above and beyond"



The best hotel that i have been in India!

good service, the owner and all the crew was excellent.

They take you from the bus station for free to the hotel and concern to take you back after.

they care about you, concerning about everything and make good price.

Love the stay, food, and the two lovely brothers who run the space. They have a great taste in music, design and culture. If you are in Jaisalmer and low on budget then this is the best place to stay with a magnificent view of the Haveli.
