We decided to book the camel trip with them while we were having breakfast in their rooftop restaurant. They made us a really good offer, and the people who stayed with us in the desert was so nice... the following morning our train went at 23'50, and, since we didn't have anywhere else to wait, they left us using the...

After busy times out hassling in the shops can't think of a better place to chill out with fellow travellers. Great seating area with mattresses, chairs or window seat. Best thali in the fort. Big colourful room with cool shade. Great hosts, excellent menu and ... magical camel trekking!*****

Shiva Guest House is the opportunity to meet travellers from all aroud the world. I really felt myself like at home, especially in the rooftop where you can order cool drinks and fresh meals. The host and the employees were very kind and interesting. Even the safari is a little bit expensive, I wasn't desapointed.

Shiva Cafe & Guest House is one of a few places I felt at home while travelling in India. I called in advance and I was picked up by Shiva at the bus station, such a nice little touch. When I walked in, I knew I was in good hands, I was treated more like a friend than a guest.... More

Very nice and friendly staff. We went on a trip to the desert with camels and we had loads of fun. David is an amazing tour guide, knows everything about the desert. Highly recommended. Plus the hostel is inside the fort which is definitely a good point!
