Staying at Shiva's guest house is so so nice, all the staff are super friendly and the cafe is the nicest chillest place to hang out in the fort. The food is genuine Rajasthani style lovingly cooked by Raghu, and the building itself is really old and quirky and special. You feel at home here. So many people keep coming...

Stopped in here for lunch when we were up in the fort their Maharaja Thali was absolutely delicious and they also have very good wifi. The guys that worked there seemed really nice and didn't try to force us to go on their camel safari unlike a lot of the other places in Jaisalmer.
