VOTED INDIA'S BEST HOSTEL 2016 BY HOSTELWORLD. Thank you for all the love and support. Welcome to the Madpackers!

The Madpackers' is more than just a place to rest when you want to escape Delhi's enticing chaos. It's a place for community, friendships and stories. We have an obsessive affair with travel and a soft spot for everything that moves with a backpack. Come on over, let us show you some love!

We’ve got all your backpacker-needs covered: from a safe, accessible location, comfortable beds and spotless bathrooms to a passion for showing you the unknown, chaotic underbelly of this enormous city and beyond. When you feel like taking a break from the city, we've got a rooftop garden/lounge and a cozy common room you can take a pick from.

With Delhi Metro’s Yellow Line a 5-minute walk away, running around the city is affordable, safe and hassle-free. As locals, the team at the hostel knows Delhi inside out and is always there to help you experience the city less as tourists, and more as a part of the crowd. Need help planning an itinerary beyond Delhi? We’ve got you covered. From motorcycle rentals to affordable travel fares, there’s nothing that we won’t do. Well, almost. ;)

Round the clock, free Wi-Fi, a fully-stocked open kitchen, a breakfast for champions and a host of food/heritage walks and crawls, The Madpackers’ is where you should be in Delhi. View House Rules


Welcome to Delhi, and to the legendary Madpackers Hostel. You’ll know us by our ultra-cool rooftop garden and lounge featuring cute fairy lights, the perfect place to relax after a long journey. When it’s chilly, head inside to hang out with other travellers in our cosy common room. We want you to love our city as much as we do, so we invite you to join us on a city tour or food heritage walk. And we want you to have a good time so we'll give you free breakfast every morning too!


You’ll find us in the safe, accessible Hauz Khas district, home to photogenic architecture and sprawling green spaces to chill out in. We love Hauz Khas Forest, 22 minutes’ walk away, and the Garden of Five Senses, which is 35 minutes away on the metro (jump on the yellow line, 5 minutes' walk from our door). Indira Gandhi International Airport is about a 40-minute drive from us, and we can book a transfer for you to make things as hassle-free as possible.

    Very Good

    15 Jan 2020
    The staff are amazing and super helpful. However the value for money is horrible. This is the most expensive hostel I stayed in India and I was expecting the rooms to be amazing. They were very basic. It was 8°C outside and the windows were mesh and couldn't be closed. Also it's super loud outside so open windows are not good. The blankets were small fleece blankets. Inside the room you can hear EVERYTHING from the corridor.

    The temperatures in the rooms, shower, and common area were freezing. Why is there no heat in the middle of winter? I had to debate if I wanted to shower knowing how cold I would be. Leaving the establishment I also got ringworm which is transferred from unsanitary clothes, sheets, etc. I was supposed to return but of course decided not to after my experience. I was charged in full, and no refund was given after I sent multiple emails to the staff. Absurd.

    We had to wait over an hour for our room to be cleaned before we could go inside. They didn't empty the bins and there were left over dirty clothes in the cupboard. We stayed in winter and the room was absolutely freezing. They didn't have any heaters on hand. One of us got a rash every time we went in the room which I think was from the bedsheets not being cleaned. We left early because it was unpleasant and they wouldn't refund us for the nights we didn't stay.
