Thanks to Abu Safari I fell in love with Jaisalmer! I have only good things to say - the room, price, staff, location, view and of course, Abu the owner! The rooftop was a nice place to hang out and chat with good food and attentive staff. We booked for 2 and stayed 5, still reluctant to leave! Make sure you book the camel safari with Abu Safari - it was an incredible experience and from what people I met said, way better than others in town (some force you to sleep at 8pm!). 100% recommended
Only hot shower i had in India! lovely hotel and lovely owner, he went beyond the call of duty to make our tie in jaisalmer memorable.
Abu and his staff are so welcoming, friendly and generous! We also book a Safari in the desert and it was very well planned. Plus when you get back, you really have a free room to relax and get a hot shower. This is perfect place to enjoy Jaisalmer!

Hands down the best value for money accommodation either of us have ever stayed at. Abu is helpful, kind, generous and, most of all, honest. Abu's written English isn't strong because he's a desert guy, so easy English in emails is best. A phone call can sort out any communication problems. If you are getting picked up by Abu, remember to look for his tattoo! People may try to take you to their hotel by pretending to be Abu. This Jaisalmer institution is a must-stay if you're in the area!
The staff is super friendly and Abu really treats you as a friend. The roof terrance is very cozy and they serve very tasteful food! 100% recommended.
We had a fantastic stay in Jaisalmer with Abu Safari. Our train arrived 4 hours late, at 3am, but Abu was waiting outside for us! Abu was truly amazing throughout our whole stay! The train station is 5-10 minutes away from the Hotel, and the Hotel is only a 5-10 minute walk from the shops and Jaisalmer Fort. Our room was excellent, and the restaurant upstairs was superb! They have many camel safari options to fit your wishes. (We particularly appreciated the room to rest in after we returned!)
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!
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
My 1st ever bad review! Our experience differed to others. Abu and staff were welcoming until we didn't want to do safari, then the attitude changed and we became a burden. The staff are different when Abu is away and it felt like we were always being watched. I met girls who had stayed here and left because they felt like the staff were always trying to get them drunk. My room was cheap and Abu discounted my friend's room when we complained, but we moved to another hostel which was much better
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!
