This hostel is amazing! The staff is wonderful and extremely helpful. The rooms and open spaces felt very organized and clean at all times. They also organized various events, from desert safaris to bollywood nights. I would definitely recommend their desert safari - it was the highlight of our jaisalmer trip. They really do a great job of making sure everyone feels comfortable and has a great time. The roof top is unbeatable, and the touristic advice is super! Superb!
Easy location to arrive/depart by bus, and only ten minutes' walk to the fort, or 15-20 to reach Patkwon Ki Haveli. The rooftop is an energetic fun sort of place at night when people are in, but the ground floor rooms remain fairly quiet. Staff always have someone with passable English around and are generally helpful. Extremely good overall!
A great hostel with fabulous helpful staff. The camel safari that they organise is great and extremely great value for money. The staff are so flexible and try to accommodate your needs as much as possible. Rooftop restaurant is a great addition! Would definitely recommend this hostel.
We arrived at mystic having accidentally booked the wrong amount of nights in a tent on the roof (IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER) and the staff happily changed our booking to a dorm without hassle. They then organised us a very worthwhile inexpensive desert safari for a night with other travellers. The food was amazing along with the rooftop Bollywood movie and plenty of blankets! We would definitely stay here again. Super chilled friendly vibe - part of the family.

We only spent a few hours at Mystic, but despite arriving in the middle of the night, we were immediately given a clean and comfortable room to sleep and welcomed cheerfully upon waking. The hostel had a desert camel Safari leaving that afternoon & allowed us to join last minute with no charge for the three hour sleep. EK was an excellent guide on the safari & we had a memorable trek...The hostel itself had nice food, good people and the staff were very friendly, knowledgeable & accommodating,
Very good setup tuned in to travellers needs such as early arrival or late departure (train times in Jaisalmer are not that customer friendly!). When we arrived at 6am they gave us a room for 3 hours to rest while our room was being prepared and were happy for us to chill out on the rooftop until a 11pm for a late departure. Rooms well equipped and clean, plenty of hot water for showers. Their camel safari offshoot also excellent.
GOOD: roof terrace w/ nice views / food. They picked me up / dropped me at the station when leaving for free. NOT SO GOOD: they commercialize the camel safari tour and was good overall. But, the dinner had no flavour. Not even a pinch of spice or sault, and we're in India! Shouldn't be difficult provide some decent food. The guides can barely speak English which is a bit of a let down too. The experience itself was good but I think there's lot that can be done to make that tour worth the money.
Amazing place to stay, meet a lot of peolple, 5 min from the fort, very cool staff. Woud be nice to have more than just Bollywood movies every night, but other than that this place is perfect.
Nice location, the restaurant rooftop has delicious food and a very nice view to the fort. The owner is lovely, the rest of the staff is helpful as well and there are always people to chat with. Good place to stay in Jaisalmer overall.
Mystic is a such a relaxing place! We stayed one night in their hostel and did the second night in the desert. Go on their camel safari! One of the greatest experiences of my life and definitely worth every penny. Their rooftop is amazing - I could spend days there day dreaming and gazing at the fort. The staff is friendly and helpful. Really great place to meet likeminded travelers.
Nice rooms, excellent service and a nice terrace to enjoy the fort.
Excellent place, beautiful and clean rooms. Good restaurant on the rooftop, although the service in there could be better (like everywhewre in India). Very relaxing, with music all day and movies at night. They sell camel safaris through the desert as well.
Prices are fair and this is one of the few places in Jaisalmer that have dorm rooms, but they need to improve a lot of stuff. Common area in the restaurant is infested by pidgeons during the day alongside a copious amount of flies, they don't seem to clean the cushions ever, pretty dusgusting stuff. Restaurant food was really great though. Dorms looked alright at first sight but then extremely hot and the fans were really loud. Gotta say that the service was great. The main guy in the reception
Very nice hostel. Only 5 min walk to the Fort. Good breakfast and food. Good price. A lot of travellers to meet. Nice rooftop. Staff is perfect.
A really nice place next to the fort. There was free pick up on arrival at the train station and the owner invited us to a free chai on arrival while explaining the hotel activities and surrounding. I recommend to book the camel safari through them. Although when you are with only two girls you might find it uncomfortable to sleep in the desert with all the Indian guides around, as the guys walking the camels are not employed by the hotel. ( one was proposing to one of my female follow traveller
Perfect location. Dorms could have been less crowded though.
Beautifully decorated hotel. Fantastic staff - very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend the camel safari - it was really good fun, they go to beautiful sand dunes and provide everything that you need. Amazing social atmosphere. The rooftop terrace and restaurant is great, everyone hangs out there most of the time and you really get to know everyone that stays at the hotel. The pigeons love it too though and there is a slight risk of getting pooped on :(
Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful - they go out of their way to look after you. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Jaisalmer.
We had a pleasant stay at Mystic Jaisalmer. The staff is very friendly and the food is really good served at the roof top. Would highly recommend it!
Mystic is awesome! The rooftop is an awesome common space to meet other travellers. The food served at the restaurant is quite good also. I did the camel safari trough the hostel and loved it. Would highly recommend it!
