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.

    I never thought I would book a hostel to stay in Delhi, as it's my second home. To be honest I fell in love with this place , staff is very courteous and there is very cozy setting in common room. Rooftop is lovely during the night where you can chill with people and make friends easily. Only issue is wifi speed which is not that great to work , I hope they work on that.

    Madpackers Delhi is a great place to stay. i had a wonderful time with the staff and the people staying there- everyone was really welcoming and made the experience a fun one. Only downsides were that the room and bathroom attached was a little on the dirty side for my liking. Additionally, the location was hard for me to get a tuk-tuk or Ola from but definitely not anything that would stop me from booking here again. Definitely guaranteed good time when in Delhi.
