Stay here if you want to be close to the main train station. Not easy to find first time, so better arrange for one of their staff to pick u up. I arrived by air to Delhi so they sent me a taxi. Very friendly polite staff, Look out for Ali who will help u book train and flight tickets. The place is relatively clean, it was March no need for AC so cant comment on that. Very good breakfast. Liked mostly the computers in the public area. Would stay there again if i need to b in the main bazar area


best hostel in Delhi, around 10m to the metro station by walk .and the room is clean ,comfortable ,with free breakfast ! Very good facility and service in Whole India


Smyle is perfectly located near to new dehli station, but is hard to find the first time I recommended pick up. Staff are very helpful and friendly, breakfast was included and was good. We stayed here twice and the 2 rooms were clean and comfortable, a bit dark though, but expected in the alleys of Pahar Ganj!


Airport pickup is a total scam. The dude is not waiting where it said he would. I ended up having to pay to use a phone to call, split the ride with another traveler, and the owner still made me pay full price even though it was a shared ride. Got the feeling the owner was just out to make as much money as he could off people. Our room had mosquito nest in the toilet and the fan was hanging from wires, bound to fall at any moment. There are much better options in delhi, don't be fooled

Owner Comment (Hide)
You came out late from inside the airport, driver had to leave after two hours of wait after paying double parking fee. When you came out and called, we tried to help you with another scheduled pickup. Paying USD8.50 will not help us become rich. We do our level best to help out but some don't appreciate. Fan hanging from wires is a big exaggeration. There are many options around but we are only ones giving best value for money, free breakfast and free wifi


I really appreciated the help that we got from the staff when my boyfriend was sick - it was very kind of them to make him special food and then to hold our room without any hassle after we went to the hospital. The rooms were reasonably clean, and the close proximity to the train station was a huge perk.

The best thing about Smyle Inn was the staff. They were very friendly and helpful. When we arrived in India, we had not had any train tickets, and they helped us book five of them, which was a lot of work. THEN, when we had to change our schedule later, they helped us get a refund on the remaining tickets. They really tried to get us where we wanted to go. We did have trouble with an electrical outlet. It is located in the center of the main bazaar, which is good, but can be overwhelming.


Some reviews say this is hard to find but its really not. Just ask the hotel for directions and they will email you them. Its literally 5 minutes walk from new delhi train station. Staff at the front desk were polite and offered lots of tourist advice. Room was fantastic and a great break from the chaos of a day in delhi. We left delhi really relaxed after staying here.


Great location down a quiet alley off of the noisy and crowded main road. We greatly appreciated the very helpful staff, who gave us excellent advice on transportation and where to eat. When we had a question about train tickets, a staff member immediately dropped what he was doing and helped us reserve tickets on the right train. Also, hot water and soap and towels are provided which is a huge plus!
