    best budget acommodation in Jodphur??

    by

    I booked this place online as it had mostly god reviews on hostelbookers/hostelworld..
    It was a little over budget at Euro 19 per night but I wanted a reasonable place to stay on the last leg of our trip. The room was ok compaed to other budget acommodation, clean sheets, hot water and even a small balcony! The furniture was nicely done too.
    Unfortunately the restaurant and staff let the place down. The food often took a long time to arrive and was cold or just warm. Sometimes a coffee took half an hour or three quarters of an hour! Other people were complaining too, especially if they were in a hurry for breakfast before a train. "hurry, hurry, spoils the curry" is just an excuse for slow service.. I say " slow, slow, makes the tourist go"..

    Eventually, on our last day, because we had dared to complain about the bad desert camel safari, which was not what they said it would be ( more later), we had a meal where the pancake had clearly been sitting on the side for 15 mins and arrived before the main meal too!
    We had given up complaining at this point as it's all we did in India!!

    Saying all that, the food if it was warm, was good!

    Now on to the safari..
    I wanted to see the Thar desert, including dunes etc etc so we booked a camel tour for r2800, fixed price as he said it was very good "better than Jaisalmer!"..
    We stopped at Mandor gardens (free entry, grubby, needs renovating, walked ourselves around), and the Jain temple in Osian (good if you like temples I guess..)
    Then we got our camels literally in the town, not what I was expecting, but not knowing the area, thought they would take us out into the desert. Not so. We trotted along a tar road for three quarters of an hour and then turned off into the 'desert' which is basically semi scrub village desert just outside Osian town.. We walked to the camel owners house for lunch (curry) and were offered Illegal drugs which we refused (Opium). Then we waited a while for 'sunset camel ride'. I'm thinking the dunes must be over the horizon but we headed back through the villages and scrub to the one shifting dune we saw at the begining of the trip! So they wasted time by makig us trek down the tar road as they knew the trek would not last long enough otherwise, and the dunes were in a town practically. We also got 'sundowners' of water only... So it was well Overpriced and mis-sold, and when my wife compliained, ( I had given up at this point!) they got defensive, aggressive and then didn't even say goodbye to us when we left. And we think the food was made cold for us on purpose because of this!

    I wouldn't recommend this place as the service is shoddy and the staff rude and defensive.

  • friendly family-run travellers hotel

    by

    We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Yogi's; from the welcome chai followed by thali and a beer on the rooftop restaurant, to the moment we said goodbye to the family who had become our friends. The hotel has alot of character, and the rooms are individually decorated and cool. We regularly used the rooftop restaurant where the nepali boys were friendly and efficient, and we were able to book onward travel tickets easily through the reception. The hotel was a great place to meet other travellers, and the family went out of their way to make us feel at home. Highly recommend this hotel to budget travellers!

    Unique Quality: There were great views up to the fort and across the city to the palace, the clock tower, and the neighbouring rooftops.
