This little guest house has the best location in the city - right inside the Jaisalmer Fort! Step outside and you're right next to the Jain Temples and all the attractions. A beautiful guest house with movie-set-like rooms, straight out Aladdin! The owner and staff are the nicest, and on top of that - the in-house restaurant serves yummy dinners,...

Really great place to stay, lovely room, good hot showers, comfortable bed, great views over Jaiselmer, nice spaces to chill out and relax. We went on the Desert Boys safari, really good experience - when we got back they gave us the use of a room to shower and cleanup until the evening until our train left in the evening...

We are doing backpacking for some month in Asia, have seen a lot of hostels/Hotels in India. This one was one of the Best we have visited. Rooms are designed as in 1001 night (its a historical building inside the fort, nice ornaments and decoration, four-postered bed), good service (camel tours), roof top chillout.

Papu and Himmat are awesome! I loved every second of my time staying here and hanging out with these guys. Their desert tour is fantastic and the rooms and location are brilliant too! There's also a really good restaurant which does decent food. Definitely worth a visit

Cannot rate highly enough! The rooms, people and location is incredible!! Second time staying here and it just gets better. The people who work there really set it apart from the other guest houses in the fort! Would recommend to anyone. Definitely do the camel safari through them too, incredible experience with fantastic company of the local people!

Desert boys was a dream. They pick you up right from the train station and Hemat the driver is the man. All the staff are so welcoming, helpful and friendly. You absolutely have to do the desert camel trips with them! They provide beds, blankets, beers and a fire surrounded with good people and music. Rooms were clean and spacious...

It was our family vacation and first trip to Jaisalmer. I made the online booking for Dessert Boys which turned out to be quite comfortable and peaceful. The owners and the staff is very sweet and friendly and the food is a perfect home cooked food which anyone would like to prefer during vacation. Though the hotel is quite small...

i've dropped by for drinks and wish i'd stayed here as the price is very affordable given all the beautiful set up avail in this mini paradise, you couldn't tell from that small entrance but inside the court yard is so beautifully designed and tastefully decorated. The property itself is over hundreds years old but it has been well maintained...

We stayed with our 3 kids at desert boys guest house during Christmas. We enjoyed every bit of our stay in this wonderful place. The guest house is located inside the old city, only accessible by foot or motorcycle. Start with the rooms: they are richly decorated with traditional carpets and furniture, beautiful pictures on the wall. You feel like...
