India’s first chain of backpacker hostels, Zostel is located near the New Delhi railway station. Its graffiti-designed walls take you away from the area’s hustle and bustle to a private haven. The only shortcoming would be the absence of a kitchen on the premises, but easy access to nearby eateries makes up for it. Also, hot water is available between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m. as well as from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. only. Prices start at 500 INR and go up to 2300 INR per night.
