The Moustache Delhi
Delhi’s first real backpacker hostel that promises an introduction to the city and country you’re about to experience, a respite from the city’s chaos, the comfort of international hostels you’re used to, and an opportunity to meet like-minded India-trotters
1.We accept credit card and cash payment only upon arrival. And there will be bank charges extra.
2.1 day advance notice for free cancellation.
3.The reception is open from 9am-7pm but check-in is possible 24 hours.
4.We are not located in Paharganj or Old Delhi. Instead we chose to be in one of Delhi's safest and cleanest neighbourhoods. Old Delhi is 50mins by metro and we recommend doing day trips there to avoid the touting and chaos, and to get a more non-touristy experience of the city.

DirectionsShow MapHide Map
From the Metro: get off at Kailash Colony metro station (Purple line) and take a cycle rickshaw (bargain down to Rs.20-30) or walk (13-15mins) towards GK1 M-block market asking for directions to JHT hotels in S-block of GK1
Cab/Auto rickshaw/all other forms of motorized transport: ask the driver to take you to the main street of GK1 M-block market. S-block is on that main street on the opposite side. The hostel is 3 buildings down from JHT hotels.
From the airport: look for the prepaid taxi service run by the Delhi police (ask around if you have to). These are reliable and cheap. Expect to pay Rs.300-400.
From New Delhi railway station: take a metro. If not, look for the black and yellow taxis. Expect to pay Rs.300.
The hostel is a one-minute walk from one of Delhi's coolest markets, 1km from the metro that takes you everywhere, and has sightseeing options nearby - temples, markets, parks - that are frequented by locals
Old Delhi (the historical city) is 50mins by metro, so you can spend your day there and then run back home to some peace and quiet at the end of the day when you have had enough of the chaos and touting of the Old Town.
The airport and railway station are both 30-40mins by taxi
