The shower was not hot at all in winter. There is only one blanket which is not warm enough to sleep.


Very very cold at night this hostel do not cost this money...


I don't know where the previous reviewers stayed...but I'm guessing not on the top (3rd) floor, cause it was a dump. Not at all like pictures or reviews would leave you to believe. No tv. Dirty sheets/blankets. Leaking toilet that flooded floor with each flush. Wifi doesn't reach room...And it's LOUD! Take my word for it-- opt for another place (off an alleyway!). For 400 rs I was able to get everything and more than I did at Payal (540/night) and I was able to sleep past 8am!


On arrival of guests, it would be nice to provide, in the room, with things like a glass (tumbler), towels.


Neat little hotel located right near a market. Staff were extremely helpful in helping us organise activities / transport. Rooms were nice and clean. Masala Chai was so good. Would recommend =)

Had a great stay at payal! Firstly we had a pick up booked through the hotel after reading how busy and full of touts Delhi train stations can be, however our train was delayed by about 1.5hours therefore we missed our driver who had waited an hour. We later learnt that the hotel had to pay the driver 100 rupees,however they would not accept us reimbursing them which was extremely generous. The rooms are clean with good wifi connection!!
