Stayed here for two nights with my partner in a standard room, which was surprisingly very nice! (See photos) large clean room and ensuite, very comfortable beds, nicely decorated and hot shower. The food in the restaurant was great, although it seemed like there was only one man working so sometimes food/drinks took a while. They have a good rooftop...

BIG MINUS: Desert boys safari price is set according to your nationality. We paid 2300 per person, while another local couple that stayed at the hotel got an offer for the same trip in 1500 each. When we ask why the safari is so expensive compare to other agencies we've been told that we will go 60 km deep in...

Deserts boys Guest house is an excellent choice in Jaisalmer Fort. The staff is so kind and helpful. Rooms are amazing with good showers and big beds.

You may get the sense that years after you stay at desert boys, the memories will stay with you. The atmosphere, the decor, the staff, the viewsm the xmall inconveniences that add character...they are all here. It's going to always be one of the most memorable parts of my visit to Jaisalmer

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!
