The hotel we stayed in was ok but outside was not the sort of place I would have willingly chosen if I'd seen it first, was quite dirty and didn't exactly feel at ease here.

A weird and fabulous place in a nutshell. It is a crowded, confusing, commercial, chaotic, complex and conniving city block which hits your five senses with all its charm and filth. A backpackers haven to be exact. Flea markets and cheap eateries dot the lanes and by-lanes of Paharganj. Innumerable shady hotels and dingy hostels sandwiched to one another gives... More

If you want to go shopping, you will find a little of everything and the prices are good. You can find everything from hippy chic clothing, bed spreads, pillow covers, decorative ottomans, wall hangings jewelry, scarfs and both boho and leather handbags. Paharganj is directly across the street from the Delhi train and metro stations, so it is extremely convenient.
