Dylan Cafe & Guest House
Ranked #33 of 108 Hotels in Jaisalmer
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

Dylan guest house (in homage to Mr Zimmerman) is a funky alternative take on the guest house. I stayed here for a couple of nights in Jan 2014. It is probably more suited to younger travellers, or older travellers who still think they're younger travellers. The building is a little old, but the rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. The roof terrace is a good place to hangout with Rajiv (the boss) and his gang. He likes to play music and has a good collection of sounds. The guest house is situated about 10 minutes walk from the fort. Room prices at the time of writing were between 300-500rs per night. This place might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I liked it and I liked the people I met there. Definitely worth checking out if you're on a tight budget.

Stayed: February 2014, traveled solo

Dylan's was a great place to just chill out and have a little bit of a break from the intensely old-school (although incredible) town of Jaisalmer. Private rooms were clean and spacious, and the rooftop restaurant/communal area is a great place to hang out with other's staying in the hotel, or to just relax. Food was yummy here also (try the fruit, curd, muesli!) and the owner is a really friendly guy. The communal, hostel atmosphere is really cool to find in a country where hostels them-self are quite scarce.

Great atmosphere and the staff are so friendly, we had so much fun staying here! It's a great option if your on a shoestring, and a great place to meet other travellers. The rooms are so cheap, but really clean and we even had hot water!! Rajiv and the rest of the staff are so friendly, really helpful and great fun to hang out with.

Dylan cafe. Once you take a sit on the rooftop, its pretty hard to get up. The walls surrounds you with dylan quotes and lyrics, madrasses with oriental colors and pillows everywhere. This is the perfect backpacking stay as the atmosphere makes it natural to get to know other travellers. Hotel manager, Rajiv, is eazy to trust and hangs around making shure that everyone is happy. The staff is polite and helpful, rooms are clean and the shower is hot. At Dylan cafe, everything is possible! Thank you, guys, for making my trip even better.

Dylan's cafe and guest house is a great backpackers hostel with a cool roof top to chill out in and to even order food from the cafe. Good location close to the fort, ATM, markets, nice restaurants and shops but the street is also quite at night. Rooms are very neat, spacious, clean and have hot water. The staff here are also really friendly too! Highly recommend this guest house lots of good vibes here.
