#1 of 1,563 Speciality lodging in New Delhi

The internet defines Jugaad as a colloquial Hindi-Urdu word which captures the meaning of finding a low-cost solution to any problem in an intelligent way....which is what Jugaad Hostels is all about. The basic idea behind Jugaad Hostels is having a rocking time at rock bottom prices and having a local experience of the destination, again without breaking the bank.

About Us


Jugaad Hostels is a chain of travelers’ hostels for travelers by travelers. Jugaad is not just a place to stay, but a place to socialize and connect. To socialize with other travelers, backpackers, vagabonds and connect to the city in your own way. It is a place to share your stories and check-out what others are up to. And most importantly it’s the place to stay away from the tourist traps and experience Delhi like the locals.


We, the people behind Jugaad Hostels have more than 12 years of experience of hosting people in India and showing them a good time.

It all started with our experiences in AIESEC, the world’s largest student organization, where we hosted people from all over the world and traveled to awesome countries. After AIESEC we took it to the next level and started our own Travel Company in 2009 to turn our love for travel and India into some pocket change 

Between the 3 guys behind Jugaad, we have covered almost every part of India and have had some great experiences all over the globe and are always looking for the next adventure.


We started Jugaad to give you a local experience of Delhi and therefore have set up our hostel away from the Touristy trapping and Travel scams of Paharganj and Karol Bagh near the New Delhi Railway station also known as the Backpackers district.

We are in the South of the city only 15mins driving from the Airport and the 2 main Train stations. We are also only few minutes from the most Popular cafe and art districts of Delhi: Hauz Khas and Shahpur Jat and less than 20minutes away from popular sites like the Qutab Minar, India Gate, Connaught Place, Lotus Temple, Humayun’s Tomb etc. We are also well connected by Metro and lots of Tuk-tuks available right under the hostel.

Clean, comfortable and friendly staff. Laundry is fairly priced, breakfast is cheap and delicious! Good social vibe. It's worth noting for the noise sensitive among you that due to lots of hard concrete surfaces, music/conversations travel from the common/staff areas and hallway into the bedrooms at night; other than this factor (which won't bother most people), highly recommend.

I have stayed at a few hostels in Delhi, from the hectic paharganj to one in south east Delhi, but this is the first hostel that is not dirty. Stayed in 8 mix dorm and also the guests seem more respectful than other places. It is easier to meet more people in the common areas as well. The rooftop is pretty nice and overlooks an open area where locals gather and normally you see people playing games. The common area at the reception is pretty nice as well. The guys working here are super nice and have helped me with whatever I've asked them. I was here mid february and the place is a bit cold and the hot shower has been hit or miss situation. The location can be seen from both views: 1. To get to/from nearest metro station is far and could be challenging and overwhelming to walk there the first time through those passages, but once you know your way, it is a good 15min walk but 2. It is a bit away from the chaotic city that Delhi could be. My intention was to stay only one night here because i need to be in a different part of the city, but i changed my mind and stayed here 1 week despite my one hour commute each way to where I need to go every morning and night. The hostel feels good. As summary, absolutely recommend Jugaads hostel

We stayed here for our last night in India. The staff were all super friendly for everything we needed. You can order dinner at the hostel which is great if you feel like having a chill evening. We got the breakfast too and it was delicious!

the room was kind if cold and damp. the washroom was nasty. the person who checked me in was sweet but then the next day someone working there offered to give me a walking tour and it was whack. wanted to walk through a very crowded area for 45 mins to get to a spice market. had zero background on the monuments we went to. and then discouraged me to go to red fort because he was lazy. lol bad experience so i left.

Myself and friends stayed at Jugaad for 2 weeks and we had a really really great time! The food was all really good although moderately expensive. The host and staff were all super friendly and the atmosphere was really cool and social. They had all the information and resources you could need for your stay. A little out of the way from the city centre was quite nice to come back to after a big tourist day. Only let down were the prices but the host had a lot of useful information and recommendations. But otherwise highly recommend!
