YWCA Guesthouse of Delhi
When I studied abroad in New Delhi, it was the first hostel our group congregated in during the first few weeks of our arrival. It's a super convenient option that's located on Parliament Street and moments away from the most buzzing commercial district of Delhi, Connaught Place. It's also walking distance from Janpath, an outdoor flea market and sightseeing hubs like the Parliament building, National Museum, etc. The rooms are decent sized, clean, and comfortable. There's AC and western amenities. Since it is a women's hostel primarily, you can't have male guests in your room, unless they're staying there as well. There's also someone at the reception 24 hours a day and a small internet cafe and call booth for your convenience in the lobby. Prices are about $40-50/night and includes breakfast at their restaurant downstairs called TEN. The food is simply amazing.
