“Reliable chain budget hotel at strategic location in New Delhi”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

YMCA New Delhi is a property of YMCA reputed chain world wide. The location is strategic and central in Connaught Place New Delhi. Rajiv Chowk Metro station, Parliament, Ministries, Airport Express station and other important Govt. offices are close by. The hotel tariff is also moderate which includes breakfast and dinner. However, the property needs renovation as all the fixtures, fittings, beds etc. are clean and in working condition but old and needs replacement. The location is quiet amd has a lot of greenery around. Public transport viz. buses, taxi, rickshaw, airport express metro connection to the entire city easily available from this location

Room Tip: Prefer rooms on front side which gives good view of the Jaising Road

There's no doubt that this hostel is very well located, just a few minutes walk from Connaught Place. I'm not sure about the YMCA's value for money as I was on an organised tour so didn't book my room independently. I can however comment on the (almost non-existent) service from the hostel's employees. You have to ask about three or four times for anything to get done. For instance, in the restaurant you need to ask at least three waiters for the bill before someone eventually brings it to you. Very sloppy. Food is really bland - wouldn't recommend eating here. If it's busy then the staff just cannot cope, so stay away from reception/the restaurant if there's a queue.

When I tried to turn on the TV in my room I couldn't get it to work. I called down to reception three times and they promised me each time that someone would come up to the room to have a look as it. No one came. I then went down to reception to ask - fourth time lucky. Bedsheets and towels are very smelly, rooms need a makeover, and our toilet didn't flush properly - not ideal when Delhi belly is inevitable!! WIFI doesn't work either. Oh, and you're not guaranteed hot water.

You need to pay extra for everything - even to leave luggage in the "safe storage area" (under the stairs and easily accessible to anyone) before checking out.

Wouldn't stay here again.

This is my second stay at YMCA Tourist Hostel, New Delhi, (and my first review on TA). I am quite impressed with this establishment in terms of the consistent standards maintained and the very reasonable & affordable prices.

YMCA Tourist Hostel at Delhi is on Jaisingh Road in a very posh and upmarket part of New Delhi. It is easy to locate, well-known, and close to a lot of points of attraction. Usually, rooms are hard to get, and you may need reservation. During check-in, you have to take a temporary membership of YMCA if you're not a member.

The rooms are clean, largish and reasonably equipped (certainly not fancy). The one that I stayed in was also handicapped-friendly. The place is well-maintained, and everything works. There is a travel desk and all amenities. The food is cheap and nutritious but may not appeal to fastidious tastes. As it is a YMCA outfit, you may run across batches of students on their camps when you stay here.

On the whole, my stay was comfortable and affordable. I would recommend this place if you're on a budget.

While the location of the this place is great everything else leaves a lot to be desired from.

The base expectation of a clean and neat room is not met by this place.

The breakfast and dinner provided leave a lot to be desired from.

Avoid

I stayed here in Room 104 from 16th to 20th February 2014. I have stayed here several times before and I have noticed a general fall in quality. But this time, it was the worst ever experience. Soon after I checked in, the power line tripped. After that was set right, the room warmer began giving a burning smell. The replacement did not work either. It took the staff an hour to bring a working warmer.

The room walls needed a coat of paint, the bathroom fittings were loose, the towels were not quite clean.

Some noisy demolition work was going on on other rooms and this would not stop even by 6.30 pm, in spite of my protest.

Complimentary breakfast and dinner were included, but the quality of food was very poor. The oily stuff gave me a bad stomach (and I am still recovering from it). The dining room was always noisy due to the constant talking by the staff.

The worst part; When I went down to reception to complain about the room problems not being addressed, the person said that he could only pass on my complaint to maintenance and he could not ensure any action.

The price was not low (Rs.3585 per night). It was sad to see a good place going to seed. In spite of the good location, I will not stay there again.

Room Tip: The whole place has a run-down quality and nothing to choose !

The main benefit of this place is its location, size, and professionalism. It is a large Hostel that has been around a long time and is approved by the government. There is a gate, you know it is a safe place, they have a pool and fitness center that is open part of the year and full amenities (including a heater if you ask).

The down side to this place is that it is overpriced, the rooms are small, and you have to pay extra to use WiFi or store your luggage. For the price, I feels these services should be included already.

If it is your first night in India, this is a safe bet though while you find something that is cheaper.
