Our stay at Smyle Inn was very nice. The pick up from the AirPort was well arranged and people were friendly. The next morning we booked a tour for 13 days. Our driver is very good and the staying also. Smyle Inn is a great hostel to start your trip through India.

Smyle Inn is a really clean nice budget hostel for travellers to stay in. The area it is based in is quite rough and will take a strong willed traveller to stay in the area as the hostel is down a seedy looking back alley. However the hostel itself is very clean and very nice on the inside. They helped... More

This was the first place we stayed in in India and although we were extremely confused and asked a lot of stupid questions the staff helped us with every query we had (especially the guide at the travel desk, thanks!). The room was nice as well, clean, air conditioned and even had a TV. We found the location convenient because... More

I stayed at the Smyle eight years ago and found it convenient and inexpensive, so was pleased to see it's still operating. This time (July 2014) I was given a quieter, better room and had helpful, friendly service from the front desk staff and travel agent, who offered sound advice with no trace of the pushiness that's almost ubiquitous elsewhere....

Well located just 30 sec to the main street where they sell clothing and shoes. 5 minutes by walk from the train station. We took a tour from there to Agra with... More

I stayed here with my girl friend. I liked the place. When I arrived the area was a huge cultural shock, but it took me only 1 hour of stroll to fall in love with the area. There are loads of restaurants around here and loads and loads of shopping. The area is like a huge flee market. The hotel... More

This hotel made my awful experience in Delhi slightly better. Clean rooms and A/C, the price is not so high (900 INR) considering that its proximity to the railway station. BE AWARE OF THE SCAMS in Delhi: I would absolutely recommend the airport pick up as I had a terrible experience with a taxi.
