Moustache Hostel

moustacheThis is Delhi’s equivalent of youth hostels. The game room is inviting, with each coffee table doubling up as huge game boards for scrabble, chess and snakes & ladders; a great touch of nostalgia. Each room has a total of eight bunk beds, so this is your best bet to address two travel needs: Budgetary constraints and meeting new people.

Bed and Chai Guest House

This travel home is for wanderers on a budget, set up by two French girls who moved to India on work and abandoned any plans of moving back. It has a warm, dorm-like environment and is almost always inhabited by young international travellers exploring India. Bed and Chai should be your preferred choice for semi-private accommodation, since you’re bound to run into a fellow guest given the close proximities of the rooms.

Devna B&B

devnaOriginally a family property, later converted into a B&B, Devna maintains the comforts of a home, while offering all the facilities expected from your regular hotel. Every room comes furnished with a plasma TV, mini-bar, and dedicated work areas. Consisting of three mid-sized rooms, Devna is ideal for small groups of people. If Delhi decides to bless you with pleasant weather, the people at Devna are more than happy to serve the first meal of your day on a mini cart in the garden.

Saket Bed and Breakfast

saketbbMarketed as a secret bed and breakfast, the Saket B and B is spread over two floors with a total of 6 rooms. The rooms are clean and functional, complete with marbled floors and traditional furniture pieces, which make it look lived in. Miraculously, it manages to block out Delhi city’s sounds {both human and mechanical}, and has a huge communal space. With a helpful bevy of staff, we reckon it’s a perfect fit for the more corporate traveller.
