    Smyle is a great place to stay if you want close proximity to New Delhi train station and shops/restaurants on the main bazaar, a friendly welcome and a nice clean room. We were upgraded upon arrival too which was a nice surprise. As with any hotel around Paharganj, it was fairly noisy (Delhi is a busy place!) but the good value of the room and friendly, attentive staff made up for this.

    The owner of the hostel was lovely, the shared dorm rooms were full when I arrived but he put me in a single room for no additional charge, 24h reception was much appreciated as I had some early starts to my days!

    We enjoyed our stay. The staff were most helpful. Make sure you have small notes as bell boy expects tip and we only had 500! The staff organized tours at a very good price with a very good driver. They helped us get a sim, change money, brought up coffee and answered questions. Watch out for men on street wanting to 'practice their English' we got fleeced for traditional clothing. However the hostel is not at all to blame for our naivety. Very nice to meet owner. Very hospitable.

    Visited India some 15 times, but this was my first stay at Smyle Inn. Quite happy--the non-AC room was spartan but pleasantly comfortable in winter. Room itself was very clean. The hot water geyser was troublesome, though. Wi-fi was decent-ish. Check-in was easy and the guy at the front desk, Alam, was friendly. Smyle Inn's allleyway location seems a little shady, but it's really not--I've spent loads of time here over the years and never had any problems. Would recommend.

    Hotel in two buildings close to restaurants and within walking distance of Delhi’s main train station. My room was ok and staff was attentive and friendly.

    Not a nice part of town (by the train station) but people were friendly and helpful once we got there. They said they were going to send us a taxi at the airport to take us in, but it was not there, so we had to do it on our own. That was a pain, but otherwise it is a decent place to sleep if you have an early morning train the next day (we did).

    It is what it is. Friendly staff but all I can suggest is don't stay in the female dorm!!! Cold dark and lots of pidgeons behind air vent. Not cleaned until the time I left. But positive close to New Delhi train station.
