  • Description


    Hello Workawayers & Travellers!

    My name is Dilbar. I, along with my small local staff team of two other, run a backpackers' hostel in the desert city Jaisalmer in Rajasthan. The hostel is located bang opposite of the historical Golden Fort parking. You can enjoy a panoramic view of the fort from our rooftop.

    We also conduct desert camping tours, camel & jeep Safari in Thar desert.

    We would like to welcome Workawayers to help improve our hostel. All the local members of our team were born and raised in the nearby desert villages, so we know the place in and out. Hence the volunteers will get the opportunity to mingle with the local culture and customs.
