Great value for money, we had a big room with plenty of space for bags and also hot water and electricity 24/7 which was great. Very friendly and helpful staff and location is super handy for train and metro (if you come via Metro just be mindful that the directions are from the New Delhi TRAIN station exit - just go over the bridge and then the directions will work perfectly) and shopping/bars etc. We booked just one night but ended up staying 5 and will hopefully be back before flying out.

Pretty much perfect place to stay in Delhi. Close to the main train station and all things you need are within walking distance. Stayed here so many nights and also went to Agra for couple of days leaving all our heavy stuff for the personnel to take care of. Everything was as supposed when came back and we got our old room reserved for us. Later even changed it to have wifi working in the room. So pleasant. And clean as well. Nothing bad to say. Vice versa! Thanks for the guys on the lobby!

Good rooms and a nice restaurant close to the hostel (it's named tadka) but there was very few other guests and no much occasions to have fun. Staff a bit uninterested.

We arrived early in the morning, and the location of the hostel in a unlightened alley was a little frightening. After overcoming the first shock it was ok, but we tried to avoid being in this "alley" to the hostel. For us it wasn't really clear, who was part of the staff and who wasn't which made it hard to trust somebody. Because as all travel guides advice you: don't trust someone - mostly they try to sell you something. Wifi wasn't working properly, and we had a couple of powercuts.

Its a good hostel, with nice staff. If you have a question, they are always willing to assist, especially Sonny. The location is excellent, with the main bazaar right outside the front door.

Hostel does what other reviews say, a low budget hostel in a tourist area. It was probs the nicest one around there. Staff were on hand and extremely helpful in recommending where to go eat and what to do - which was. Wonderful for first timers in India. Only negative was the tv in our room was not working (not too much of an issue) but we had some neighbours who played there's ridiculously loud at all hours so would have been handy to drown out their s

Sunny the manager is a very welcoming person, ready to help you on anything!!! he makes the difference and is the reason why I recommend this place. Of course the very cheap price and warm water are a plus!

It's not a luxurious place that's true but you'll find anything you need - hot water, wi-fi. Located very well, hard to find it though. It's better to order a pick-up from the airport - otherwise the taxi driver will surely take you somewhere else and say the hostel is full and your reservation no longer valid. We recommand for those who are used to indian conditions.

I only stayed one night in this hostel but the stuff was great, it was clean and a good atmosphere. They gave me a single room becuase in the dorm was a family. The room was a little bit too loud until about 11 pm, but in this area it is difficult to find something quite. So it is an exellent hostel. Can really recommend it even if it is difficult to find.

Pretty basic but exceptional value for money. Quite difficult to find in an alley back from the main street of Paharganj. No real common spaces but my en-suite room was good for the amount I paid. Noisy at night and not the cleanest but as good an option as I think you'll find in Paharganj.
