Property Description

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

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.

    Madpackers provides a peaceful sanctuary in a chaotic city but the hostel is located in South Delhi which is an upperclass neighborhood. Although outside of the city it's right off the metro and close to the Village where are the night clubs and restaurants are located an uber ride away. The staff are amazing and the rooftop is for a pregame or a little kick back.

    Great hostel and staff. Super friendly and make sure the guests always have something to do. Anas always made sure people were having fun and had more energy than anyone I've met working at a hostel. Will stay again when I leave India.

    Amazing place! Great atmosphere, and SUPER tours (highly recommend the Delhi Belly tour). The only thing was that there were limited bathrooms for a lot of guests and I felt like I had to wait every time I wanted to use it. They really help you ease into the chaos that is Delhi.

    The staff here are SO friendly and welcoming. There is multiple day trips, tours and excursions the hostel arranges that are all reasonably priced. The hostel has great security; you feel very safe and comfortable. The rooms are nice with everything you need and the beds are comfy. Nice common area and terrace to relax in. The cafe offers free breakfast and also really tasty meals throughout the day. A very pleasant stay, recommend highly :)

    This is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. Its located close to two metro stops. The staff is lovely, the atmosphere, relaxing. You can socialise if you want to or find a quiet corner if that’s your thing! They have a nice collection of books. The dorms are clean, beds are comfy!! Bathrooms are cleaned regularly. How clean they remain during the day depends not on the hostel but on the fellow dorm mates! I was always impressed at the grace of the cleaners and staff!

    I had a great time here, it's a beautiful hostel and everything is clean. Met good people and the breakfast is nice. BUT on my check out day during breakfast there was a dog there and everyone was petting her and giving her little bits a food when one of the Male staff members came over and started full force beating the dog with a stick. If you don't want dogs on your property then just ask the guest not to feed them or just show them away. I will never stay here again.
