    Strategic Location”

    1. Location : Really strategic location. Easy access by Delhi Metro direct from airport (5 mins walk from nearest metro station). Near Delhi Railway Station (5 mins walk) - train to Agra. 2. Food : Some cheap halal stall around here, and a lot of Indian stall around. Convenience store just in walking distance. 3. Shopping : Not much shopping shop around. Buy souvenir at Red Fort, 5km from here. 4. Facilities : Internet was good in the room. Lift provided. Room and toilet quite clean. Toiletries provided but limited. A/c function well. 5. Staff : Staffs were very polite. 6. Value for money : For RM 80 per night its worth the money.

    It's nice experience. Before I have booked another hostel but they cancel my booking when I reach there with a stupid (fake) reason. Than I booked Zostel at last moment. Check-in process & reception staff is very helpful. Place is good for solo traveler for make new friends. Nice big dorm with clean bathroom. Overall I enjoyed my stay. Will be back soon.

    Great location if you have an early train from the main new delhi station. You can hear cars honking at night so bring ear plugs. I was happy with the facilities, cleanliness, staff etc. Description said there was a kitchen area which I didn't use but assume it was as described.

    good hostel in the heart of old delhi”

    i moved to this hostel because it was closer to the train station than the other hostel that i was staying at in the south. the hostel is clean and tidy, the staff are good. a/c in rooms is lovely and cool. shame that your unable to drink in the hostel as the rooftop is perfect for it. location is bang next to the madness that is old delhi.

    Very noisy and dismal neighborhood but close to transport hub”

    Short walk to train station and airport express train but located in a sickeningly dismal neighborhood. Streets are all torn up and full of dirt and potholes, lots of busy traffic. Even though many foreign travelers stay at the hostel, there are no good restaurants nearby at all. Mostly, a lot of cheap dirtbag hotels and shops selling potato chips and soda pop. The noise is terrible and the hostel dorm room doesn't even have closed windows. There's a broken air conditioner in the window and all the street noise, honking horns, etc, comes straight into the room. That's right, the room had no air con, even though it was 39C. All we had was a small fan for the entire dorm. Terrible sleeping conditions. Bathroom door was unlockable so anybody could just accidentally walk in while you're showering or taking a dump. If it wasn't for being so close to train stations, this place would have no customers at all.

    A little worse for wear”

    For the price and location I'm happy with my stay. However, the hostel itself is quite huge and I think it's suffered as a result in terms of creating a social environment and spaces for people to meet. The facilities are a bit tired (downstairs hangout area looks like a zombie apocalypse happened, and the showers on the first floor didn't work).

    Amazing staff-cool Hostel”

    To start the Hostel has such an unique touch, it used to be a Hotel and they made it more modern with some cool graffitis through the Hostel. They kept the lovely staff that used to work previously on the Hotel, which is amazing. Lovely day and night staff from reception. I have to take my hat of for the staff- every single one of them are great. So helpful and kind. Shout out to Simran, the sweet girl from reception during day time. There is a fridge inside the room, so you can keep any food in it. There is free chai at 4pm and you can interact with other travelers. Nice rooftop area! Stay here and you won’t regret it! Thanks so much for the warm reception and great hospitality! Julianna

    Nice Zostel ”

    I only stay here for a couple of hours before catching my flight. Location wise it is very closed to the train station so it is very recommended for those who want to walk and avoid the tuktuk driver. Bedroom is okay but the bathroom need improvement. I arrived at 4 am in the morning and the staff let me took a nap in communal room before checking me in at 8 am.
