Property Description

We have dorms where every bed has a reading light and a charging point, as well as private rooms withstylized bathrooms and LCD TVs. Rates are inclusive of free self-laundry which is highly appreciated by our guests. There are also individual lockers for each bed; bring your own padlock or buy one at the reception.

HosteLaVie provides free use of the kitchen, luggage storage, free high speed Wi-Fi, a book exchange and the best coffee in town! Oh yes, we have our own brand of brewing coffee named after our Hostel as “Coffavie”. There is also a wholesome continental breakfast available every day. We try to ensure a rotation of eggs, porridge and cornflakes for our breakfast menu from time to time. As for meals we have amazing authentic Rajasthani Thalis.

Our roof top cafe has the most amazing view of the 1000 year old Jaisalmer Fort which is also a World Heritage Site listed by the UNESCO.

Meeting people is very easy at this hostel. Be it as you chill on the lounge pillows in the open-sky cafe area or while playing games like Jenga and UNO inside our in-house coffee place, or as you watch your favourite football match on the large LCD television there.Our hostel holds multiple impromptu free events several times a week, ranging from local food tasting, photo walks, musical nights, heritage walks or painting sessions. The most loved of them all is definitely the “Know a LaVier’s Culture” cooking event where everyone learns to cook another LaVier’s home country dish. If you’re in the 'don't-want-to-mingle-tonight mood there are a few cozy corners on the dormitory corridors to be by yourself.

You can use the store room to store your belongings if you have checked out and need to drop the luggage for a while. We believe in not asking anything in exchange apart from a wide smile.

    This hostel is amazing, the rooftop is gorgeous throughout day and night. The whole hostel is kept super clean and there’s so many different spots you can spend time relaxing. All the staff are so welcoming and most importantly, the owner Polu is the best host I have ever met and treats you like a friend. This hostel is also by far the best place to book your camel safari

    Great hostel! Had an excellent time, and the host was amazing! Only downside is that your water is only availabile from 8am - 12pm, to no hot shower for me on arrival. But, did do washing for free which was a huge bonus! Would definitely recommend.

    Really nice stay, great interior! We booked a desert safari through them- it was good value for what you get but always worth it to research around. We really enjoyed it and our stay as well. Rooftop and restaurant good, walking distance to main attractions. Would come here again! Thank you :)

    HosteLavie is located just near the main Jaisalmer fort in the heart of the city. The hostel is really nice with clean rooms and beds. The common area is an awesome place to hangout or just relax if one is alone. The proprietor is very warm and welcoming and is a fun guy to talk to and he has lots of stories to share. Add to that two cute and friendly Alsatian dogs. So overall a great place to stay with dining options nearby.

    Top quality hostel. Lovely staff super helpful very good food and fantastic roof terrace. Only thing I would say is wasn’t that clean although it was clean enough that it didn’t present any serious issues. Just a bit dusty in places but to be expected in the desert! Other than this would 100% recommend staying. Also taking their desert camel safari! Camel guides are awesome especially Jagdish. I spent 2 nights in the desert under the stars a turkey unforgettable experience.
