Thank the Gods that we bumped into Gouri outside the railway station. He helped us book trains and find buses/tourist information and only mentioned that he had a hostel when we moaned about ours. We'd already booked into the scummy, cockroach infested Evergreen, but the next day we moved into the lovely Shanti house. A big, quaintly decorated airy room with flower patterns on the wall, a proper bed and a Western toilet. We enjoyed a delicious meal on the small roof top terrace, and were charmed by his wee girl who sat in our laps after we ate. Gouri managed to get us seats on a seemingly full train, and was a wealth of information. If you have to stay in Bikaner - stay here!
