“Very good location (Main Bazaar Rd and NDLS), nice staff, standard room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

It was so lucky for us because after a long trip we had to carried very hard bags, but the hotel was just 300m walk from the main entry of New Delhi Railway Station. Main Bazaar Road was crowded, so we found it quite safe to go on foot and find the hotel by Google Maps and GPS at night. Mr. Harish was very kind to give me his advice about train ticket booking and room reservation. Breakfast was standard and free (with egg, toast, milk, tea, and fruits). The next day we had a late check out because of our mistake, but the staff showed sympathy and did not take the late hours into account.
We took a tuk tuk to Chandni Chowk, but the area was so crowded and scared that we decided to go back Main Bazaar Road immediately. Shopping in Main Bazaar Road brought us the feeling of being at home. There were many foreigners here too. My friend left her bag in a restaurant here and only realized this after 3 hours shopping around! However, the staff kept and gave it back to her.

Best Fit Budget Hostel for a short trip guys or Backpackers..

Smyle Inn guys surely do the best what they can and keep their words..

Pls do use the Pickup and Drop Options from the Hostel at a Reasonable Money, as this place is Located in busy Market Road and it is surely a tough place to locate at first instance...

This Hostel is well connected to both Metro and the Other Railway station..

If ur a Road-side fooodie.... You have excellent varieties to eat all the way in road from Simple salads to range of Nonveg Finger foods all way the Road... "ONLY FOR ROAD SIDE FOODIES"

Rickshaw and Auto keep running the whole Lane.. U surely can get a ride to metro or the Railway station for less than Rs.30 or even 20 at times...

Breakfast was Simple.... nothing more to except though..

WiFI was damn Excellent connectivity..

Rooms are Average.. with Hot water facility ...

My husband stayed at the hotel just last week and has come back with great reviews of the hotel Smyle Inn. He said the hotel is not just clean and neat but the staff there are very helpful and cooperative too. The manager at the reception too is more than willing to guide and assist in anything you need. The breakfast is repetitive with Eggs & cornflakes but i must say worth the price for a budget accomodation.

We stayed at smyle before and after doing our golden triangle tour and had a great experience! Ali and staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Ali booked our golden triangle tour for us and did a great job. He even helped us order dominoes pizza :) the rooms are clean and newly renovated. A bit small but great value for your money. Breakfast is also included. The hostel Is located down a bit of a sketchy alley past a public pee hole but once you get past that it's great!! It is also walking distance to the main rail station. Would definitely recommend and stay here again in the future.

I did not stay at the smyle inn as we were only in Delhi for one day, but they did let us store our bags there for free, which was very kind. On arrival, the manager was very nice and extended us all the courtesies of regular guests. He gave us a map and some recommendations for where to eat and what to do - which we took. From what I could tell, the hostel had a good vibe and a nice lounge area and was conveniently located. The wifi worked well. If I go back to Delhi, I will stay at this hostel.

I was unfortunately not able to experience this hostel because arriving in India I was scammed by a guy who told me this place didn't exist and that it was shut down.

I only found out that Smyle Inn was for real when I received genuine worried emails from the staff asking of my whereabouts. They are really nice and caring people.

To avoid this happening to you it's probably a good idea to order a pick up at the Airport or Train Station. Keep the number of the hotel and also a good idea to get the number of the driver if you have a working phone.

Next time I go to Delhi, I will definitely stay at the Smyle Inn. Paharganj is also a great neighborhood for backpackers, so it's a good place to stay when you first arrive in India if you wanna meet up with other travelers and exchange experiences.

The hotel is located in the main bazaar but in the alley therefore giving you an excellent location to walk to the bazaar for sightseeing but yet away from the noisy street in the bazaar. The hotel owner and staff are very friendly.
