The sprawling campus of the National YMCA in upmarket Jai Singh Road now boasts a Hostel, inaugurated on August 30, 2014, which can accommodate 50 persons in 25 well-appointed Double-Rooms with all modern amenities at affordable rates though, principally for its YMCA clientele from across India and abroad. The Hostel has spacious rooms with shower attached and is well complemented with a multi-cuisine restaurant overlooking the foyer besides car-parking space for its clientele. The proximity of the Hostel to the shopping hub of Connaught Place and other places of attraction makes it the obvious choice of the discerning traveler, especially the budget-conscious. A Conference Hall is soon to open in the premises and would be yet another value addition to the facilities provided.
