“A stay at YMCA”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

The hotel lives up to its standards of clean and cheap accommodation. Food is wholesome and plentiful. Breakfast was also good. The rooms are spacious and quiet, although sound-proofing for the corridor is non-existent. Toiletries provided are sparse, room service slow, but still rather good. Discount was offered after enquiry. The tourism desk in the hotel was available after eleven a.m. and unhelpful. Centrally located hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back are less noisy.

We visited with a large group of college students. It was our first stay in India, and after traveling the country for 5 weeks after that, I can say that this is one of the nice plays one can stay in India. The staff were always helpful and cheerful, the food was good and the beds were very comfortable. I was just grateful to have a shower and a toilet in the room! :) Please don't expect Western type of luxury, but know that this place is clean, comfortable and friendly. Also, the location is very excellent.

As long as your expectations aren't unrealistically high, the YMCA Tourist Hostel is a perfectly adequate place to stay. Service is good, rooms are clean. Location is handy. Food is unremarkable but edible. Overall, it offers reasonably good value for money.

Located in the heart of the city and walkable to connaught place, patel chowk metro and 5 mins taxi from New Delhi railway station.
The hotel itself and the area around feels highly secured.
Food quality is average and so the other services.
In total, its good if you want to have a secured stay and a home feeling.

I had given a thumbs up 3 years ago. But this place, still great in many ways, is sliding down. Dining is the worst casualty with both standard of food and service deteriorating. A subtle take-it-or-leave-it attitude, which leaves not a very pleasant feeling.
Many of the varandahs of the rooms have been blocked as they have become structurally unsafe. The sink in the toilet meed some simple makeover.
The place is still pretty clean, and no one can take the superb location away.

The location is great. It's very safe, in part because of the location and in part because of the imposing but friendly security guard. The food is decent in an institutional way, and the upkeep should be better but it does give you a chance to experience Indian urban middle-class life: the creaky elevator, the "geyser" hot water that gets turned on as you need it. It does cost way too much.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2013

I have stayed here over the past decade regularly while travelling to Delhi for CNS work. But this past trip for 5 nights pinched me more because the price has increased considerably with a double room costing nearly Rs 4000 (and a single Rs 3000). In this amount (about Rs 4700 all incl.) one can get a 4 star hotel such as Ibis in Gurgaon!

BUT YMCA IS GREAT. This is a very safe, comfortable, clean and neat place to stay, especially for those who are not familiar with Delhi. Location is very central and very close to Airport Metro express as well as Delhi Metro station (subway) is also very close (5-7 min walk - to Patel Chowk Metro station).

YMCA also includes breakfast and dinner - and restaurant and reception lobby is good. They also have a good business centre and travel desk.

What is not good here is that - in recent stays I have to ask for free-kit-of-toiletries - so please ask when you check in and make sure you get the entire kit and not just a small soap.

second, their room service has really gone sour. Repeatedly we had to request for water in our room, and room service staff - this is not convenient and with so much of tariff one does wonder why is the room service not pleasant and caring? The pillow and mattress both need attention if YMCA is charging so much of tariff.

I sincerely request YMCA to revise their tariff and bring it down to Rs 2000 for single, and Rs 3000 for double, at most. Request their house keeping staff to be polite, caring, responsive and honest in their responsibilities they attend to;

Room Tip: make sure TV is not in one corner inside cupboard - rather in front of the double bed!
