The stay at the Smely Inn Hostel was very good.My friend and I stayed togheter in a double room. The room was very clean the bed is very comfy.You get towels a soup and toilettpaper. The shower has hot wather and is perfect for washing your hair. The breakfast is included it is very simple but very good you eat it at the rooftop. The staff is very friendly and they help you with planing your daytrip or your travelling. You are near the railway station and the Metro to go sightseeing. And you life in the Main Basar road with is a very famous backpacking area All in all the stay was very good. We would definitly come again. Thank you Girls from Austria
Great hosts, very organize, and attentive to all my needs. Will go again for sure. Clean and comfort room, very convenient option for the price, the workers put the best of them in resolving and giving indications about the city atracttions
They sent a driver to pick us up from the airport, at a charge of course, which was nice. There was a bit of confusion at checkin as the guy on the desk spoke little English but after a little while someone else appeared who was a lot more helpful, checking was easy and the manager gave us many tips and recommendations, very nice guy, very chatty, he also got the local vodaphone rep to set us up Indian SIM cards which cost us 900INR for 2, (the 1.5gb a day deal) and took about an hour to set up. We threw our bags into the room and headed out for some well needed dinner. The issues arouse when returning to the room that night when we uncovered numerous issues: 1. A minor inconvenience but non the less, the tv ‘package’ advertised with the room was non existent, there was a tv but none of the channels worked. 2. I went to take a shower but the ‘switch’ to change between the tap and the shower head was broken, there was a bucket on the floor, I assume the hotel wanted me to fill the bucket and pour it over me as an alternative. 3. There was no hot water so I proceeded to pour buckets of cold water over me in order to get washed. 4. The worst issue, there was a leak from the bottom of the toilet, therefore, toilet water slowly pooled into the bathroom, as you can imagine - very unpleasant. 5. The aircon stopped working in the middle of the night and started pouring water inside the room and into my bag. After a small but tasty breakfast (included) on the rooftop terrace we raised the issue with reception. They came to look at the issues, took photos and apologized, a guy came up 5mins later and spent half an hour messing with the tv box. I told him this was the least of our problems and insisted we move room. He still persisted. I spoke to reception a second time and told them we needed to move room, which they finally sorted after some other guest checked out. The new room was good, apart from a couple of large cockroaches in the bathroom. When settling our bill I asked for a discount as the first night of our stay was abysmal and I got laughed at, for the sake of £11 I left it at that and decided to write this review to vent my frustration, if you stay here, hopefully you have a better time than us. PS bring earplugs, you can hear cars beeping and dogs barking alllll night. …
In my travels, I have learned that there are three things that the world needs more: education, honor, and courtesy. The owner of Smyle Inn, Harrish, represents all three. When I booked my room, I asked that my internet be fast enough to teach a class. When I discovered my wifi was not strong enough, within minutes, he immediately solved the problem by giving me access to ultra fast wifi. Harrish kept his word. When I though that the local money changer cheated me with fake bills (though it turns out they were real and that my UV light was not strong enough), Harrish had one of his employees accompany me and made the changer vow to refund in full or switch the bills the next day if I wished. Harrish had my back. But most importantly, Harrish had the courtesy of greeting me every time he saw me and even sending a personal goodbye message after staying at his Inn more than two weeks. Harrish showed basic courtesy.…

Im glad that i choose this one bcoz this was neat and clean affordable and the staff is extremely helpful ! I would definitely recommend this place if you are ever in the town . highly recommend !
I stayed for 4 days. Location is perfect.The place is nice, just walking distance from the New Delhi railway station..Harish & Staff was very nice. Thank you for everything! I definitely recommend this place to everyone. You will be happy here:)
Bharat was great at organising our trip seamlessly. We were provided with an excellent driver, with great English and well experienced. All hotels we stayed were a good quality. Bharat regularly checked in to see we were happy with the trip. The driver and trip were very flexible and enabled us to see sites we would have otherwise missed. Overall very happy with his service.
The area feels very unsafe, would not stay in this area again. Staff was okay but not too helpful. Room was okay but could be better maintained. Did not try the complementary breakfast so cannot speak on that.
