Smyle inn is a reasonable place to stay on a budget. It offers a great location for the train station. Although the area is very busy at all times. The location is just of the main strip which is a little difficult to find. We book a guide with the travel desk which promised an AC car which was not produced. The staff lack in language skills other than their own which made it difficult to ask about this issue and pay. Lastly rooftop Terence generator is so loud you can't have a conversation.


The location is in one of the more buzy part of town, close to the metro station, which is nice. But the hostel is placed in a really sketchy alleyway and kinda of difficult to find. Delhi really don't care that much for road signs, hence non of the people living there tend to know any road names. We had to take directions from a young man to go into the alley, being two girls travelling in India, proberly not the smartest thing to do.


The hostal is directly located at Main Bazar close to the trains station. We enjoyed the stay!


We had a great time at Smyle Inn, New Delhi. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, and the AC worked very well, the towels could have been more clean, but still okay though. The breakfast is simple but a good start of the day. It is very nice that Smyle Inn has an airport pickup. We used it and were very satisfied with this service.

Dear Edward, Your review is a case of misunderstanding. Normal checkin time is 12noon. We gave you checkin at 9:30AM. We cannot provide rooms prior to 12 noon as per policy. However in some case we provide room after 8am if the rooms are vacant from last night. When you came at 8:30am there were no rooms ready. The moment we got the room ready we gave it to you which was about 2:30 hours prior to regular checkin time. Hope this clears your doubts. Regards Harish


This hotel is Ok, you get what you pay for. Breakfast is free and is not bad, it is also not a bad spot to meet people (breakfast that is). Rooms are small but have excellent air conditioning and are cleaner than some other hotels in India. Staff were very helpful. The public urinal out the front is quite unpleasant but the location is good if you want to be near the train station.


A decent budget hotel in New Delhi. Free breakfast and good wifi were bonuses, as well as the travel desk who helped to arrange tours and activities.


Smyle Inn served us well while we were in Delhi. The breakfast on the rooftop is good.


Excellent location. Organised airport pickup for us since we arrived at 3am in morning. Flight was an hour late landing but they still waited for us and didn't charge any extra. Would stay here again


Smyle Inn is in one of the coolest and interesting street in Delhi! A good start. The people working there were super nice. I could just say, smyle Inn is great!


We had a nice stay at the Smyle Inn, just off the great Main Bazaar road, the room was simple and clean. The service was excellent.


It was a nice place. Breakfast was a little poor. On the street right by the hotel they had a open public urinal, that was really practical. Right next 2 the urinal there is a really good restaurant. Friendly people in that street, they even say hi to you while urinating. Clean room, friendly stuff, cool rooftop!
