    When I first walked into this place I thought, this looks way too expensive for my budget! Buuuut they have a dorm room. I didn't shop around for a place to stay, a couple of other travellers said that I'd paid the same for a dorm bed here as you could pay for a private room elsewhere in Jaisalmer, but I can't verify this and to be fair, Mystic is so great in every other way I was happy to pay the asking price.

    It's really clean, cleaner than most places I've stayed. There are a couple of hammocks on the roof by the restaurant which is an awesome touch, the food is good and priced similarly to other restaurants in the the town and sometimes they project a Bollywood movie onto a screen in the restaurant. Oh, and if you're into your nice views with your chai, the view of the fort from the roof? Perfect!

    The location is spot on too, just a few minutes walk from the private bus stand and less than 10 minutes walk from the main bus stand. The fort is probably around 10 minutes or less on foot too. A couple of reviews have mentioned rubbish in the street. Mystic is located in a residential area and yes, there's rubbish in the street, but I've yet to find a town in India where this isn't the case and it's not within the hotel car park. The building itself is set back from the street, I didn't find any kind of problem with smells.

    And the owner, Ashraf, he was great. He introduces himself to any face he doesn't recognise and makes you feel welcome. His brother is one of the most chilled out guys too, it was him who checked us in when we first arrived. We were given a map, told about the main things to see and do, and their camel safari was pitched to us just once and without any pressure at all. We didn't take it in the end and went with another company but when I came back after our night in the desert I was welcomed back and ended up staying for three more nights. Would definitely recommend.

    I spent more days here then I actually planned. The owner and the staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant on the top where you can see onto the fort and just hang out and enjoy your sweet cup of chai, chat with other travellers and have a good time - chill factor is around 150% :-) They also organize travel things and tours for you and of course camel safaris. I had a wonderful time!

    ... up to the rooftop restaurant for a cup of chai before being shown a choice of rooms of which we could choose one for our stay. The view from the rooftop was fantastic, you could view a large section of the fort walls - it looks like the perfect sandcastle - straight sections of fortifications intersected by round bastions, and behind that you can see the building inside the fort jutting up. This was what I had seen in photos but it looked even more picturesque in real ...

    ... neighboring complex of Jain temples. Enjoyed our first hot shower for nearly 3 days then went up to the rooftop. Doug and Roseia left to catch a train so we said our goodbyes, then we had a delicious dinner on the rooftop with Marco and Guy.

  • Relaxed on the rooftop for a while then borrowed Guy's iPad to book a night train to Jodhpur tomorrow night. We had some time to spare so went outside the fort to the Government Museum, a small but interesting collection ...

    ... one 30 mins earlier. The extra waiting time meant that I got to make some friends with the chai walas and stall vendors at this derelict bus "station".

    Only an hour journey, this beat up mini bus blazed through flat plains dotted with stunted bushes, leaving a sandstorm behind us. Besides the occasional sights of galloping camels and clumsy donkeys, I was quite rapt that the bus route came very close to the ginormous wind turbines ...

    ... trade was stopped, and since Jaisalmer is only 120km from the Pakistan border, it has been caught up in several conflicts, and now houses a major military. This evening, dinner was on the rooftop of our hotel, where we got to watch the sun setting over the desert, and enjoyed the aerobatic skills of a large group of bats who were happy to keep the insect population down for us.

    ... these people really know how to pressure you into a purchase, getting out marble stuff all over the desk that probably collectively comprised as much marble as was in the Taj Mahal, we begrudgingly made the obligatory small purchase and left. The guide then dropped us back on his scooter to the front gate, so I can tick something off the life list there, fearing for my life sandwiched on an old scooter through narrow streets by Jason and a 45-year-old Indian man.
