We love the staff at Hostel new king. Everyone was Super friendly and they watched out for us throughout our stay. They were Super helpful and we'll definitely recommend this hostel to our friends if they do come through New Delhi.


No running water on sink. Location was pretty good but an awfull neighbourg hood.


For $4, you can't expect the Ritz, but this is nice. It's in a bit of a back alley and kind of hard to find but it puts you right in the Delhi action and you get a sense of the culture better. Little bit loud at night. WIFI works but is mediocre at best. You can get stuff done tho. Hot shower was incredible. Bring your own toilet paper! Staff was great, very helpful with everything, even got us food to our room the first night when we were exhausted. Would stay again.


Very friendly. Great location central to the train station and the main part of Delhi. Would recommend to all.


Fantastic place to first arrive in New Delhi. Sunny was a massive help in settling me in and steering me straight from some sketchy characters. The room is all that you need, with easy access into the hussle and bustle of New Delhi. Fantastic experience and am sure to recommend this to any budget traveller with no exception of being a first timer.


Best place amazing people

Very good place and very friendly people. Many thanks for all.Hope see 3 weeks later


The beginning of staying here was not good. The toilet was disgusting! But they immediately changed the room as I complained. That room was really nice. The place was very very cheap and just 3 minutes walk from the New Delhi railway station and Ramakrishna Marg Metro station. Thus moving in, out and around the city became very easy. Good and reasonable food and shopping-stops were around. If you can ignore the dirtiness of the entrance then this place is just awesome!


New king is located right in the heart of main bazar with lots of food and shopping options. We found it very convenient being so close to the main train station, only walking distance. The touting is stronger because the density of shops, and for 350 a night you get more than you pay for. It was great to have a comfy clean bed and a strong hot shower, much needed after hours of travel! Thanks new king for keeping it simple with no hassle!

Smelly rooms and the bathroom was unbearable and constantly leaking on the floor. Sheets were stained, and obviously unwashed. Very loud as opening above the door and constant screaming everywhere (unsure where coming from?) Staff dont acknowledge you, however there is a very cute pug!!! He acknowledges you very well I love him. On a positive note, it is in a good location and very cheap. Literally get what you pay for! Didn't die or get robbed - winning!


Thank you for being so helpful and nice to me!


In India, a hostel comes with normal speed wifi, super hot shower, consistently, I'm satisfied!!! The location is good, easy access to subway and main bazaar. The street food around is just temptation.


The staff was very helpful , always there to answer all questiones , hot water , free WiFi , one of the best Hostel I habe stayed in so far in india


The location a bit shabby, rooms nothing special but safe and the staff was super kind and friendly!


It's a hotel rather than a hostel, with private rooms. Staff not very welcoming, and sometimes rude. Tricky to find the exact location. More suitable for families rather than young people. Dirty.


The place is in a pretty bad area, the lobby and rooms are dirty, but the place is cheap. The truth is you probably get your money's worth here and the staff is somewhat friendly. However, the staff did send me to a sketchy travel agency where I was ripped off big time! AVOID ALL TRAVEL AGENCIES!!! specifically Namaste Indian Voyages, but they're all bad!


We stayed here first night in India it is in a bad location down an alley way next to a big market. The staff seemed very dodgy and they will take you to a tour guide company as they get commission from tourists. Our first night we got shoved in a room next to the reception which was horrible and then moved to a better room where we felt safer. The only thing I liked about this hostle was the cute pug at reception.
