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.

Conflicted about stay. It's away from the main clocktower area, but still easy walk to fort. A longer walk to the main area and restaurants. Facilities old, bathroom grungy, and electricity held together with sketchy wires. Owners seemingly friendly but made us feel unwelcome with nickle-and-diming policies and repeatedly emphasizing rules about lights, fans, etc. Owner seemed paranoid about being ripped off by anyone + everyone. Wi-fi expensive. Go only for a real "local" experience.
Really friendly family run place couple very helpful, felt like home

This place was not as the reviews suggest - small, hot, cramped room without closing window. Tiny desk fan made for a very hot night. Cut our stay short - which was the best decision we made.
We were very surprised at how poor this accommodation was after reading some great reviews for the place. Our room as like a closet and thick with dust. You have to pay for wifi which we've found nowhere else. They will only look after your bags for a couple of hours or else you have to pay for a room. Check out is pretty early at 10am. The owners are nice its just a shame they dont put a bit more effort into the place. The food is pretty good as well and for a reasonable price.
