Dormitory at Mau Jn.. 2nd tip regarding this
As old one is now renovated and has upgraded with better facilities..
It is supposed to be AC dormitory soon and non ac will be as old one but with cabin rooms..
the Dormitory is fully personal room type, personal charging socket, lights but fans not available on every cabin as cabin is small but fans are at enough height for air flow...
Attached washroom with 1. Indian Style and 2. Western Style..
2 big bathrooms attach with Geyser (working condition)
Available on 1st floor with dedicated female dormitory, retiring rooms for double, single with ac one as well..
As usual check in at Enquiry Office but from Pf1 side, take entry directly to the office from door and asked them as from front its crowded for Enquiry plus less space to communicate properly with documents and details ...
After check in take stairs from inside hall opposite to ATM/UTS counter
Go upstairs and a concern person will ask about it and there you go..
On normal days its empty hardly 4-5 ppl as mostly business one took for short period
On exam days or weekends its fully booked almost..
Most important thing bring your own lock & key..
Cost me ₹ 95 for 12 hour slot (₹12 extra if booked online)...
For 24 hours i guess its 150 something not sure..
Food options available on platform but not proper bhojanalay or restro type, u can take exit and walk for 500m straight towards main road.. you will find every rate, type, taste, menu hotels.. from veg to non veg with costly restro to cheapest roadside one as well..
24 * 7
Rickshaw, Auto available ..
Bus stand is on main road, 500 mtrs walk straight towards road after taking exit...
in Mid night shops only open there.. its safe in night to roam now as Gunda Era has been ended since 2017

Great Agree Useful
Dormitory at Bikaner ..

Neat, Clean and Peace ..
Peace bcoz its may be big station or terminal station but crowd is very less..
So ☮️✌️..

However the Dormitory is available at PF1 side on first floor, you need to check in at Enquiry Office at Pf1..

12 hour slot is not available here, you need to book 24 hour slot which cost you ₹190 if offline else ₹202 via IRCTC ..

At pf1 side you may find various food options on road, local food as well as norma thali food ...

In morning had Poha for Rs20 which was damn good at that price..
And in Night i accidentally went to a shop which turns out to be a food place . . Named "Ram Lala Ji ka Basa"
Only thali system at ₹100 with unlimited food, but Papad, Namkeen, Raita at once..
Tawa Roti large in size with Ghee, Dal, Sabzi, some different pickle etc..
Taste was again damn good..

I went to outksirts for desert view and some work..

Useful Great Useful Great
Overall #Tip
1. Dormitory and Retiring Room available on 1st floor, book via rr tourism site, not to rely on offline booking as very less chance of availablity of rooms or beds..
However check in should be done near UTS counter, there is seperate counter for the Retiring Room..
2. Dormitory is divided into room numbers, mine was room number 5 and it
has only 5 beds , shared bathroom and western toilet fitted with working Geyser, however condition of washroom is not so good not so bad its avg..
3. At station you will find various food options as well outside station plenty of restaurants and hotels and bars .. for famous kachoris and all take exit from pf1 side and walk on right side of main road there is famous restro name Janta ..
And for more take exit cross the road and follow the straight road then left u will reach a chauraha named as Jalori Gate where u can find more famous houses of snacks and food etc..
4. Transportation is easily available as city is not so big like metro city hence transportation is easy here
I used Rapido for all my travel as its cheap and fast.. however shared auto, city buses available, cabs and reserve auto also available..
5. There are plenty of places to visit as tourist however due to some work i didn't get enough time to even roam to single place so i focus on 2-3 food items instead of historical places etc..
However the city is not blue as of now, people's are changing shades and blue city is lost legend and new nick name is Sun City.. even at outside station the hoarding of I ❤️ Sun City ..
Overall my experience for 12 hours in Jodhpur is 4/5
I found kachori are better here than Jaipur but Jaipur is way big, develop, and big city, has more places to visit in sequence as well.. has better connectivity inside city by local transportation than Jodhpur..
But still if i have to choose 1 city from these both for spending few years of my life i will choose Jodhpur over Jaipur bcoz i don't like metro crowd anymore 😹..
PS- now going to Bikaner to see that city as well.. 🤪

Take exit from pf1 side for every transportation service
From other side exit i saw only Taxis available..
However :-

1. Auto present and charge heavily (my experience)
asked 300 for 3 km only after bargain comes to 250 still I refused
2. State Govt bus available as they have bus stand in one side of station, if u know the bus route and number u can board it
3. Ola/Uber present but they have also the same problem they will ask for the destination then cancel the ride same as every majority of city this situation is common now a days
4. Rapido also available and i used it not from station but from hostel to my work place and they have pretty good services
5. Metro is available on both side i mean west and east side..
Blue & Green Line available
Blue line serves Secunderabad East & Green Line serves Secunderabad West
I used Secunderabad West to RTC X Road..
Standard Gauge, Hyundai Rotem Rolling stock..
Nice experience as same as DMRC..
6. MMTS also available, you have to check the route and board it... Same as Mumbai Local

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
