This charming guest house proposes good quality price ratio camel safaris in the Thar desert. Moreover, the owner of the guest house is super nice and the food is delicious: especially the chocolate pancake!

Even though I was really ill during my stay in shivas the two brothers did their best to make my stay as pleasant as possible. Ride to the hospital+pharmacy included. The location is great, you're literally in the fort of jaisalmer and can look down over the city! Thank you guys again!

After busy times out hassling in the shops can't think of a better place to chill out with fellow travellers. Great seating area with mattresses, chairs or window seat. Best thali in the fort. Big colourful room with cool shade. Great hosts, excellent menu and ... magical camel trekking!*****

Taste the rajastani thali and meet Shiva the owner ! We will be replete in your stomach and in your mood. You could find silence for your lunch, located in the citadelle, the restaurant and the guesthouse are a old haveli. Enjoy !
