Date: 3rd July to 6th July,

We along with my other colleagues wanted to meet in New Delhi for a Federation meeting and also being employees of a PSU we wanted to take this oppertunity to make some visits to the Ministers and other officals. This place was near to the Parliment House and almost all the offices of Ministers and also their residences were near to this place. The ambience of this hostel was very good and we enjoyed our stay.

We also conducted our meeting in the Hostel canteen and the hospitality was very good. Eventhough most of us were 50+ we felt very young and the place brought back our memories during college days. I made it a point to stay at this place whenever I travel to Delhi along with my family also inspit of having some relations in New Delhi. The quality of food was also good and it is the Cheapest place in Delhi to stay. Only draw back is the bus stop is little away from this place and metro is not near.

I have stayed in Youth hostel for couple of time, and over all I like it. I prefer staying here because it is safe, clean, peaceful and cheap.

Pros:
-It is a peaceful place, and cheap for the affluent neighborhood where it is located. All the foreign embassies and consulates are located in vicinity.
-For solo traveler, its a good option as you can make friends. I went on 25th Jan and met few people who arranged republic day passes for me.
- Clean toilets and rooms.
-Breakfast is again simple & cheap.

Cons:
-Away from the center of city. Even the nearest Metro terminal is 2-3 Km away.
- Some of the staff members are little rude. They are mostly volunteers, So if you treat them with lot of respect, they will be helpful.
- WiFi network has some timing, its not always on I don't know why though.

Smoking and drinking is not allowed. This can be either pro/con depends on your point of view :-)
For lunch/dinner you need to inform them in advance. The food is prepared only if they have a minimum 5 people.

I hooked this hotel for two nights long stay because of its good name and reasonable rate. The IYH New Delhi youth hostel is friendly, clean, and in a nice area near all the consulates. The rooms are big, extremely clean with prompt room service. The staff is warm and friendly. Breakfast has some nice local specialities. I get offered with attractive hotel and sight-seeing packages. Package includes complimentary pickup from Airport by courtesy car, a welcome drink, a complimentary fruit basket, full day Delhi sight seeing tour by Luxury bus, 2 bottles of mineral water, 20 % discount on laundry,10% discount at Swad Restaurant. Overall I had great experience and yes it is one of the good hotel to stay in New Delhi.

This hostel is a really bad place. Don't go! It's ugly, far away from most things and the staff is very unfriendly. The price is much too high for Delhi stanards, the breakfast is awful and there were rats in eating hall.
The wifi didn't work and the staff tried to find constant stupid excuses for everything in a very rude way like: 'On republic day in India there is no communication in the whole country' which is of course not true.

We had to ask for new bed covers 3 times: first time there seemed to be puke on the pillow cover, then dried blood and so on...

Terrible experience. In India not everything is clean but even for Delhi standards it's the worst place imagineable...
