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. Our staff know Delhi inside and out and can give you a personalised map plus recommendations on their own favourite spots.

    Great hostel! For us as 1st timers in India, it was very easy to find it and skip all the taxi/Riksha scams (read the directions they send!). 13± km from the noisy main bazar you can gradually get used to the Delhi's intensity+it is 4 min walk from the metro. The staf'ss great vibes effect the guests and it is super easy to make friends and go on trips together. Reception lounge, rooftop, breakfast, clean toilets, great shower(!), AC. Thank you Elash & Kirty and the rest of the team :)

    One of the best hostel I have ever stayed in.What a classy environment,You can meet People from all corners of World,Gathering Together ,Chilling and Partying.Nice hostel staff.Nice Location and Very Comfy Beds.Bonus is Very tasty Breakfast and Nice Hostel Trips. Although a minor Thing is that hostel is located on 3rd & 4th floor of a building . So you have to pull your luggages. Otherwise a 10 star rating hostel.

    Amazing Amazing & Amazing!! Had one of the best experiences of my life there. It was my first time at a hostel and met a lot of pure souls there! The solo travellers ignited a spark inside me to travel more. Everyone including staff , janitors and security was great, especially Piyush & Kirti! They were really really friendly and helping. The café guy was great and they had amazing food! Recommended 100% to everyone who's planning to travel there!

    In terms of atmosphere this hostel is great, and the common areas are fantastic. However the prices are a little high compared to other accommodation in the area. The 14 bed room smells a little because of the bathroom and it is damp. There is a large kitchen that can be used. It has all the facilities necessary, and would recommend it for meeting people but not for comfort or longer stays than 1-2 days.

    Not a bad hostel. room with 16 bed is too crowded and no AC during the day. No AC in the common area during the day as well. sometimes you just wanna escape the humidity and heat of Delhi without feeling spoiled, I mean we're not in Norway. the staff was extremely nice and helpful. a little walk to Merto station but few nice resturants in the area.

    Nestled in a quite and quaint locality of hauz khas; madpackers does stands out among the others. Easy to get around and its proximity to the metro was one of the major advantages for me as an avid backpacker; but also being so and having hiked for days in mountains was really looking forward for a nice shower and had my expectations high looking at the whole common area. But was just as disappointed with the sate of its bathroom and shower; it sure needs a major redo. Could be better :)
