The only good thing is the location located at central main bazaar road but otherwise still a walking distance to the Metro station and to other main attractions.

This place has hot water, and the wifi fast. Bed comfortable. On Main Bazaar Rd, it's noisy in the day, but from midnight to sunrise the streets are quieter, for sleeping. The Main Bazaar also has plenty of eating spots, & other stores for backpackers. The metro is walking distance, e.g. Ramakrishna Ashram Marg stn went everywhere I needed. Vicky was helpful giving advice to visit Delhi, and also willing to help plan my travels beyond. He's very knowledgeable of places and can price accurately.

This was a terrible place to stay. We are pretty sure we got scammed by the staff here. I do not recommend this place to anyone.

This was the rough end of hostelling. I stayed in a private room at the front with its own little bathroom. Not recommended by me despite the price and excellent location for the metro, bazzar and station. Good vibe out on the street.

I like this hotel first because of the very nice and helpful staff, as in Delhi, frauds are everywhere, they have precious virtues. Location is good, though it is overcrowded outside In Diwali Festival eve. Room is big enough, we had a triple room, facilities are a little old but still work. The room was not very clean as we arrived, but you can ask the staff to clean it. I think it is a good choice for budget travelling.

The location was great, and some of the staff were great, but one of the main owners was creepy and inappropriate (especially if you're a female) and irritating (wanting to organize everything for you in a pushy manner). If not for this one owner?, it would be pretty good value for your money in a very central location.

Hotel Payal is right in the bustle of the Main Bazaar and is surrounded by shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is very dirty, with noisy rooms that have stained bed sheets and a filthy bathroom. Speaking to other guests during our stay, their rooms were in a similar condition. The staff are very friendly and sociable, arranging bottled water etc on request. They try to helpfully assist in planning your onward travel around India, although we felt there was an underlying agenda.

Friendly hostel very close to many Delhi highlights. Convenient as it is close enough to the train station to walk (great if taking super early morning train rides). Many shops, restaurants close by. Bring your own lock for the lockers (or purchase at the store across the street for 30 rupees).
