Firstly Id like to say how lovely and helpful the owner was but overall the general cleanliness, noise and atmosphere wasn't great. However my main criticism lies with the travel agency they provide at the hostel. So, they offer you an opportunity to see most of Rajasthan (14 days) with a personal driver for a stupid amount of money. Clearly,...

Very good value. Kind of a weird location down an alley on the teeming Main Bazaar, but also very close to the New Delhi Metro Station. So it's generally convenient, but also hectic. Internet is fairly slow, but it works, and it's included. You get what you pay for here. Private "superior" room was exactly as expected: clean, private bathroom,...

I think it's the little extras that make this place. Free WiFi, free breakfast, free internet connected computers to use up to 10pm, an honest travel agent on site you can book tours and onward reservations with at competitive prices, and toilet roll, soap and towels supplied. The Smyle is situated off the main bizzare. If this is the first...

It's a relatively basic place to stay, but it does include A/C, ensuite and satellite TV. Breakfast is also included in the price and is something different from day to day. The staff are great and really looking after your needs. Excellent location in Paharganj, just off the bazaar and very close to New Delhi train station and RK Ashram...

We stayed at Smyle Inn for the last night of our 1 month in India, to catch a flight out of Delhi.
