The manager of this hotel was very helpful - not only did he provide excellent service with regards to the room, he also helped to book a tour to Agra (for which I paid 3 x less than the German man who sat on the bus next to me), a taxi round Delhi for the day and a tour with a charity who help street children. The room was very clean (there was a toilet roll provided which is a rarity in India!), the shower was great and there was wifi in the room.

The staff were by far the friendliest we have come across in India. We were invited to have a chai and chat with the manager, but unfortunately we didn't have time, however when we returned to pick up our bags, they still gave us a cup to wish us well on our way.
A lot better than Smyle Inn! I would stay here again. Make sure you book with AC or they will give you a room without AC ; this happend to me at Smyle Inn as well. For some reason I got charged about 200-300 more Rupees than what Hostel World confirmed, this happened to me as Smyle Inn too! The shower was not the best and not really hot water. Very noisy at 2:00am with guest coming in that were really rude. Looks just like the picture and very new looking.
I stayed with my friend twice at Hotel The Spot & was very much satisfied with the services & facilities provided to us.* Great Management & Helpful Staff. Excellent breakfast (With Fine Presentation). Located in a typical Indian City area(Paharganj) * Very reasonably prized. * The hostel had a real family atmosphere and help for travelers was readily available. *

centrally located, however it is down a very hard to find narrow alley.The main street it connects to (paharganj bazar) is very dirty, noisy and folk trying to sell things to tourists. It's about a 20minute walk to the nearest metro station.The hostel doesn't look exactly how the website portrays it. It's very cheap,&you get a shower bed(sheets seemed a bit stale)& served food which was ok. It ended up being fine for the time i was there and what i was willing to pay. Depends on your standards.
I stayed in 2 different hostels in New Delhi/ Paharagang area, and Hotel The Spot was the better of the two. The Pahargang seems to be a good area for a stay in Delhi, but be prepared for a culture shock... The area is loud, busy and host to bazaars. Men urinate in the street nearby, but that is India. As for the hotel, it is a newer one, and the rooms are nice and clean. The staff was friendly and could speak pretty good English. They were helpful and maintained a watch in lobby for security.
