I would like to put on record my appreciation for the hospitality extended to me during my stay at Smyle Inn, New Delhi in the month of June 2012. Indeed I felt rather 'at home' while I was there at the guest house. I would especially like to commend the Manager for the wonderful job that he is doing to ensure the guests are comfortable and I look forward to staying at Smyle Inn again when I am in Delhi. A thumbs up to staff, manager and owner, Mr Harish Sharma. All the best.

I stayed here for 45 days and always felt safe and secure. Staff were friendly and helpful. The included breakfast and internet access is great. I used the travel desk to book trains as well and everything went smoothly. The location - near New Delhi station - is also very convenient.

The hostel was difficult to find, down a stinky dark ally way, though the locals do seem to know where it is so it's a good idea to ask for help if needed but beware of the open urinal at the opening of the ally way, yuck.
The room was shabby, in serious need of some TLC and not terribly clean.
Staff were clueless and not very helpful (we wanted to arrange a taxi and it was beyond them).
However, the hostel was really close to New Delhi station, which was great. There were several restaurants near by and the general location was pretty perfect for our needs.
Additionally, the hostel provides free internet access which was great.

Mondays and Fridays are the main market days for this bazzar, it gets VERY busy, so I would recommend not arriving here on these days as its really overwhelming.

Clean rooms, good service, free WiFi, free breakfast... And no more expensive than places nowhere near as good.

This place was really great, and you could tell that the owner was incredibly service minded.

Backpackers in Delhi invariably end up I pahar ganj, cos it's cheap, central and full of BPs. In this hectic and overwhelming environment smyle inn is a great choice for a bit of calm.

Stayed here for a week during the summer, good air conditioning and excellent staff. They were really good about arranging stuff for us also its near the metro which is very convenient. And the charges were so fair. I would totally recommend staying here.

I and my wife stayed 3 nights on the beggining of our trip in India. The room was clean and safe. But everytime we did need hot water it was necessary to call the staff. Before departing from Delhi we booked a room to stay a second time in the hostel, 2 weeks in advance. The guy who was working there said that everything was ok. But when we came back to Delhi, there was no room. We had to go out and look for a place to stay at 11pm.

I stay 2 weeks earlier...gone to northern snowlands and back to delhi before flying back...I came back to Smyle Inn for the second time as the owner is a nice guy and gave me a room in the early morning...Its room may be a bit small...but it will do without much problem...
The aircon is strong in the delhi summer weather and its the most important thing when staying in delhi...Room is clean...hot water...free wifi...what can you ask for?
If you want to stay...book early...cos the rooms are always fully booked...
