The owner is very friendly, but the place is shabby and the dirt as old as the house. They charge for Internet and even in India and for a cheap guest house it cannot be so difficult to provide a pillow case, a clean mat, dust the extremely poor furniture, wash the blankets or sweep the floor once in a month. We were planning to spend a whole day more in Jodhpur but because of the ugliness of the place decided to take the (very) early morning train. After a month, worst place in India so far.
This is really just like staying in the family's house, which is excellent if you want homecooked meals and a homely vibe. Note there is no hot water.
I arrived at Amar Niwas late in the evening and he was friendly and talked with me He had a full menu cooked me a decent meal. I seemed to be the only person at the guesthouse when I arrived, which I was not so happy about as a solo traveler. He charged for wifi and seemed to harbor some hostility toward the guests based on their desire for free wifi. I didn't actually stay that night and went to Yogi's guesthouse. Yogi's was amazing! Go there for a great stay in Jodhpur. You won't regret it.
