    Befuddled why this place has so many rave reviews”
    Clean beds and good wifi, but gross baths, no hot water, common area is a small dirty entrance room and their vibe is off-puttingly unfriendly. There’s signs posted everywhere that you aren’t allowed to keep your luggage on hold after checkout or stay in the common area past 5pm (so...what does one do if they have a late flight? I’ve never seen a policy like this in a hostel before, ever). Also, they straight up turned the lights out on a small group of us in the common room at 9:30, and we were just having a normal conversation level, it wasn’t loud or party-like. Huh? Would not stay again.

    unhonest staff”
    I arrived without booking, and they asked me 450r per night, after that i see on agoda that the real price is 300r so i book my 2 nights with agoda. After that they tell me that they booked by themself when i arrived, and they can't cancel blablabla and because i paid with agoda they loose money because they booked 2 times so they forced me to pay 50r more per night. Moreover they are not helpfull, if you checkout, they don't want keep your bag for some hours (except maybe if you pay for it). check out is at 12, i check out at 9am, and just after they tell me that i can't stay in the common area because i checked out and i have to leave now (so better to check out at 12 xD) and to finish shower and toilets are not clean So i recommand you to try another one ;)

    Very recommended backpackers hostel in Delhi!!!”
    I love everything! The location, very easy to find! The cost, very affordable! The rooms are always cleaned! The staff and owners are VERY friendly and cute! I mean it. This is the place! Location is very good, it's in Paharganj. Few walk and you're in the New Delhi railway. And few walks opposite, you're in the Metro. This made my stay in India very nice! I want to go back.

    Beware being taken advantage of”
    I came here my first day in Delhi and asked for help in finding a map and booking a train. After talking with the hostel manager, they brought me to their office, where they proceeded to sell me a train ticket and a booking for a few days south of Delhi. After paying premium for the arrangements (2 nights with train travel between), I learned the two places they gave me first didn't have pillows on the beds and second didn't have wifi. And yet they'd charged me almost $200 USD. I will admit I was stupid about the arrangement and so taken advantage of. But would not recommend the hostel based on this experience to anyone but the most budget conscious travel (beds here are ok, accommodations are dirty as a whole, and the management takes advantage of unsuspecting tourists)

    I've been to the top Hostels in Delhi, this is the one I'll always come back to.”
    So I am a solo female traveler and there is nothing worse than feeling uncomfortable in the place you're supposed to be living, especially in a country with so many men. I tried Zostel and Backpackers Panda but had to leave each time because of how unprofessional and unsafe I felt (I wasn't the only one who felt that way too), but at Backpackers Hostel it was the exact opposite. The staff are incredibly nice and go above and beyond to make you feel at home but they also just let you be in your own space (that's important when you're sharing a room with seven other people). They have AC, clean sheets, soft pillows, hella bathrooms, tons of restaurants nearby, AND THE WIFI IS INCREDIBLY FAST!!! By the time I came to Backpackers Hostel I was finishing up my trip to India and just wanted a place to relax a bit before my flight home. I'm sad I didn't find this place sooner, but next time I'm in Delhi I'm definitely crashing here. *Also, if you needed more proof on how amazing this place is, they scheduled a taxi for me to the airport for only 400Rs. If you've ever tried to order a taxi to the airport or have someone order for you in Delhi they will almost always try to charge you in the thousands--even Uber charges you a bit more. And a tip, if you're looking for a cheap and decent restaurant nearby that won't make you sick, try Madan Cafe. I fell in love with their Fruit Muesli and Chopsuey.

    L'hostel est bien située sur Main bazaar. 10min à pied de la gare ferroviaire, 5min du métro. Chambre ok climatisée mais literie non changée durant le séjour, même à l'arrivée. Propreté des toilettes/sdb à revoir. Bien pour petit budget mais peut faire mieux.
