    I had such a great time here!”
    The staff is so friendly that I felt right at home! Not only are they located within the market and close to places you can eat, the way they decorated the hostels in visually pleasing. The beds were clean and the lockers were big enough to fit my big bag which was great. Also, it was within 10 minutes walking distance of the station which made it easy to reach. I would stay here again if I was on a budget!

Further, if they will provide from reception Lockers Locks against cash deposit and Towels at fixed Charges will be added facilities.

    OK FOR INDIA”
    (1) TOILETS not scrubbed daily. (2) TOILETS do not flush properly. They swirl water but weak suction. (3) PILLOWS & BLANKETS need to be washed. Not washed between customers. Very unhygienic. It's India. Standards are lower. Just go out onto the street and see the trash, the urinals in view, the dust & dirt.

    Everything about the hostel stay itself was amazing”
    The staff who run the place were great, but the tourist agent there ended up over charging for a relatively simple practice and then lied to me concerning whether the next hostel would be booked completely for me. As with anything in India, listen to the locals for advice but in the end book your own things and be aware that this area of the city has a reputation around the country for scam artists (due to the influx of tourists). Standard hostel stay; free water for refilling water bottles, bunk bedded rooms with isolated lights, outlets and lockers per bunk. Roof could be cleaned and maintained better for a nice chill place to hang out and all staff are friendly and speak well in English while they try to learn other languages as well.

    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 ;)

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.
