I got picked up in the bus when traveling to Jaisalmer.
He, the Boss, showed me a flyer with the rooms and the cheap prices. 50-150 Rupees. The flyer speaks about WiFi too which you wont find.
The rooms are dirty, smelly and cockroaches are singing at night out of the bathroom. The Hotel is based on 'fishing' for travelers who come without any hotel reservation and forcing them to buy activities like the camel safari. That's when the hotel starts making lots of money, because they sell it for 3000 Rupees (1 night in desert) while other hotels would sell it for around 1000. Its a family run hotel and the Boss, i think his name was Sarim, was just ridiculous. I have never seen anyone showing a bad conscience by his facial expression just while saying 'Welcome to the hotel'. I saw him having arguments with many hotel guests and also me, most of the times it was about money and camel safari. He is a cheater. The restaurant, I have never seen anyone eating in it, is run by a young boy, actually all of the employees are small boys, or better small slaves of Sarim. You wont be able to sleep longer than 6AM because you hear the staff clearing their mouth of flem as soon as they are up. They are only friendly when they see a chance to get your money, if not they are rude. Definitely avoid! These people don't deserve any business success. No one would go there twice.
But the saddest of all is that they will change their name and continue the same way as before but without any bad online rating :(
