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

Overview

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!

Location

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.

Rooms and Dorms

So you're the solo type or travelling in a couple? Go for a private double room to get your own space. Fancy being in the thick of it? Pick a mixed or female-only dorm with either a shared bathroom or an en-suite. Your linen is included (bonus) and every room has refreshing air con. You'll also have a reading light so you can check out your guide book in the early hours without disturbing your bunkmates.

Extras and activities

If you’re relaxing and recharging at the hostel, make the most of the free Wi-Fi or pick up some new reading material at our book exchange. Our fully stocked guest kitchen will take care of you if you get peckish. Dying to check out the Red Fort or India Gate? Drop by our 24-hour reception.

    The staff were super friendly. The food was nice and not too expensive. If you get the chance, do their Delhi Belly food tour of the old town. It's a fantastic way of seeing the old town and getting done top notch grub at the same time

    Great location in the south of Delhi near two metro stations and near the centre of Hauz Khas with quick access to great food and local markets. The hotel is clean and a very sociable place to be thanks to the wonderful, close-knit staff there. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

    We really enjoyed our stay in Madpackers. There was a great atmosphere in the hostel and plenty of organised tours. It was clean and comfortable. The food they serve in the hostel is very good too and reasonably priced! The only downside would be the number of showers and toilets but it really isn’t a major complaint as it was only a minor inconvenience in the end. Will return and would definitely recommend it.

    I enjoyed my stay here but there’s things the hostel can improve. They charge you a more expensive rate if you book directly than if you go online, unusual. If you extend in person they may say its done but it’s not and then try to charge you for a more expensive room. Also, they kept my 500 deposit as they got my dates mixed up and when I explained and my rickshaw was waiting to take me to my sleeper bus, they kept taking time saying the bus will wait, well it didn’t and I lost another 1500.

    The beds are pretty comfy, but the rooms are really stuffy and unventilated. Cleaners loudly come into the room every so often with little regard of who is trying to relax/sleep, without even knocking. I accidentally booked for the wrong date for one of my nights, and emailed the reception to try to fix the error. I didn’t even get a reply and when I arrived the man was very grumpy and told me I had no choice but to pay for another night. Bad customer service. People smoking weed a lot.
