Abu and his Hotel is truly amazing his friendly staff were very helpful and kind. Hotel was great with good food and great views of the fort. couldn't recommend this place more. Abu is also a great person and goes out of his way to help you out. His safari was also awesome and it was truely a great experience. Thanks Abu!


Good value and friendly staff but they are very disorganised. You need to ask several times for toilet paper, etc and rooms are not ready on arrival. Linens (towels/blankets) were quite dirty. We went on a great safari though. The food wasn't the best but it was a lovely experience sleeping under the stars. Bring warm clothes for sleeping!

Hello! First of all sorry for make you wait, our hotel was completely full in this day, for this reason we gave you the room 10 min late. Thanks for your notice! Your opinion is extremely important for us improve our services. I feel also sad for this situation. I hope you enjoined the safari! We do all to do our customers happy.


Abu is amazing he helps with everything you need and more. You must stay here if you are in jaisalmer and make sure you go on a camel safari


Excellent hostel - cheap and good location for the fort. Staff very friendly and helpful and really just want you to have a good time. Safari offered by the hostel was great.


We really enjoyed spend time in abu safari ! Abu was really nice and the cooking team was really really nice and helpful, it was a pleasure to meet them ! And the camel safari, the night under the stars... What could we say ? Amazing experience ! Thank you


Abu and his team are the best!! They do everything they can to make sure you enjoy your stay in Jaisalmer! The camel safari was really nice (with great food) and they were always available to take us anywhere we wanted to go that was outside the fort area. Overall, great stay and great value for money. Thank you Abu!


Unfortunately due to time restraints I could only stay 1 night here but Abu was a great host and ensured that I had a very comfortable stay. Comfortable room ad nice rooftop.


Abu is a great host and has a fun personality! He will make you feel very welcome. It's nice to see hotel owners that are honest and genuinely want you to enjoy your stay. Also met other like minded travellers to go on camel safari.


I travel a lot and this was my best hostel experience so far. Owner, Abu, is an amazing person. He spent a lot of time with us, drove us to some places with his Jeep and bike for free. Rooms are very clean and it takes just around 7-8 minutes to get to the Fort. They also allowed us to spend there time after we finished safari (organised by their competitors!). They arranged any beer and other things we needed. Abu Safari Hostel is a part of Jaisalmer must do experience.


Wow. Best hostel I have stayed in India. Abu is an excellent host and makes you feel at home and like you are part of the family. He cannot do enough for you! The rooms are spacious and clean and the food is excellent. Definitely recommended!

Although we just planned to spend one night in Jaisalmer and do our camel safari in Khuri... The athmosphere and staff at Abu Safari were SO good that we decided to stay there for a few more nights and do the safari with them (thanks also to some reviews of previous guests. No pressure at all from the owners of the place). Abu and his collegues were incredibly kind and Abu helped us with all (free pick up/drop off, visit to the old fort and surroundings, advices...). Really recommended.


I really can recommand this guest house. Abu, the owner of the hotel, offered us the best service of all hotels we stayed in.He's a chilled, funny and really nice person who you can really rely on. Abu picks you up at the railway station, drives you around the city if he has time and chilling on the beautiful roof garden makes you feel comfortable. Abu offered us a Safari without pushing and it was a great experience with nice guides. Also the roof top restaurant at abu safari was amazing!

Hi there, I would totally and utterly recommend this guest house to anyone! One of my favourite places I have stayed in India and such an absolutely special time!


Probably the best place I stayed in India. Abu took such good care of us in Jaisalmer. He picked us up from the train station and really made us feel at home in his place. He would help us with anything we needed. We went on his camel safari and really enjoyed it too. I'll definitely be coming back to Abu Safari in the future !!!


Abu Safari is one of the best place to stay in all India. Truhly honest owner of hotel, friendly staff . Rooms are big with hot water, wi-fi, ac or fan, good bett and window from where you have view to Fort Jaisalmer.Hotel have also good locaition, walking distance to Lake, Fort , Market,Railwaystation. Just please be carefull in bus or train many people say they are Abu Safari what is not true, owner always wait on the station with signboard. Don't trust people inside bus or train. Good luck !
