Zostel Delhi is THE most centrally located, top-ranked backpacker hostel in Delhi. Our hostel is close to the direct airport metro and a short walk away from the train station, Connaught Place and Old Delhi. From the narrowest lanes with small shops to swanky malls; from roadside chaat stalls to the most expensive restaurants; with a charm that combines the eras of ancient India, the Mughals, the British, and the post-independence India, Delhi has stood witness to changes since time immemorial. Delhi has been a stirring pot of Indian cultures, as is befitting to a capital city. Right in its heart lies the backpacking hub of Paharganj, which might seem a bit sleepy and noisy in the day but comes alive, larger than life, in the night. Zostel Delhi, on a busy street of Paharganj, is often the first stop for International travellers before embarking to other destinations in India. One visit to Delhi is enough to lose one’s heart to it forever.

It's a very good and economical place to stay for people who are solo travelers or bag packers. Staff is very friendly, rooms are clean and the interior is so chic. Great place to meet people from across the globe. Highly recommend.

A little bit over my budget... but the basic double room was definitely worth it ! (2240INR/night) Sparkly clean, a/c + fans, fridge, 2 double beds, free drinking water (cold and hot) on every floor, giant mirror along the bed, very available and helpful staff... It's actually the only place i liked in delhi (... as most of airbnb options are not allowed for foreigners). And the street is much quieter than paharganj !

Great ambiance, chic interiors, friendly staff (Swati is a sweetheart) and a chance to meet people from all over the world - what more could you ask for? If you're in Delhi and are looking for a place to crash, look no further than Zostel.

My stay at Zostel Delhi was amazing. The rooms are basic, comfortable, and clean. The staff there is absolutely amazing.Friendly and so helpful. Niyati, the Activity manager, made my stay even more memorable. Mohan, Swati, Aamir, the guard, housekeeping staff, all very sweet! Definitely going back.

If you are in Delhi on solo, just forget about everything and head towards Zostel. Nothing can be better than staying in Zostel. It's just 5 mins walks from New Delhi Railway Station and all tourist places are nearby. Their activity manager Ms Niyati is very active and plan everyday new activity. We went to Gurudwara Banga Sahib then CP and hang out on rooftop. Overall that was really awesome stay. Thanks Zostel.
