good place to stay, with a good working internet connection as well, however the only issue was that there was not really a public space to sit down with a table or , although a small space next to the counter exist, but not as usual in a hostel this is why it only got average for facilities; though one has to mention that it is actual a hotel and not a hostel;

Best hostel with amazing staff especially the host.

be aware if the manager says "I am going to upgrade you from dormitory to a single private room". it might be a small room in a separate dodgy building with no wifi connection, no hot shower, bad bathroom and it gets really really cold at night during winter. but to be fair to them, i actually stayed in this hostel again at a week later and was given another room this time WITHIN the same building, a real 'single private room' and it was actually excellent.

The hostel is in a nice location in the area where most tourist are staying. It's close to the metro line, and to the train station as well. It's a nice place to spend a few days while getting to know Delhi. The staff is really helpful, especially Sunny, who is always ready to help the guests with anything. If I come back to Delhi, I would stay here again.

The bedroom was very dirty and the sheets were fithy. The hostel is off a very busy side street. We relocated hostel as soon as we arrived. What you pay is what you get, personally it wasn't for me. The staff were friendly and welcomed us with Chai, but the room standard was not good.

Super nice helpful and kind manager Sunny offered a lot of help during the my stay here. I booked dorm online but Sunny gave me a single room at the same price! The room has hot water 24 hours and wifi everywhere with strong signal and high speed. The location is very convenient to access since it is near railway station in walking distance and surrounded by main bazaar where there are so many things to explore. The room is very quiet also. I extremely recommend this hostel where feels like home

Hotel New King is a great place, fantastic price, great location in central new delhi, lots of market stalls nearby as well as affordable rooftop restaurants. We had hot water 100% of the time, nice beds, working fans and everything worked perfectly. Without a doubt the best thing about the hostel is the guy that works there called Sunny. He is incredibly helpful with regards to anything and is very kind and respectful to your needs. We will stay here every time we come to delhi

The good - staff was helpful, facilities were adequate, no big hassles at the actual hostel The bad - the hostel had my flight info and they confirmed airport pickup, but the driver wasn't there when I arrived, nobody answered at the hostel the first several times I called from the airport pay phones, really frustrating. the driver also complained about the 20% tip I gave him when he brought me back to the airport the next day. my room had quite a few roaches, although it could have been worse

I booked for 2 nights and stayed for 5. The location is perfect, close to metro, train, markets, good food, and there were always so many exciting things happening in the Main Bazar, right outside the hostel. Just an all-round exciting area. Airport pickup was good. As a solo female traveller I felt safe here, and it was great to speak to Sunny who is kind, helpful and full of good advice. Make sure you get a chance to chat with him :)

New King is excellent value for money and a good base for Delhi and sight seeing in Rajesthan. The room was comfortable & the hostel was warm, friendly and safe. The staff were honest, extremely helpful Especialy Robin and accomodating and helped us book futher travel; for which everything was excellent. I thoroughly recommend New King on a budget and it is much better value than similarly priced hostels in Delhi. I have no hesitation to recommend staying here & booking further travel.
