MakeMyTrip is the booking site to go to for India…IndiGo can sometimes be cheaper on their own website.

Hostel world/ Hostelbookers/ Agoda/ Booking.com will all help you get an idea for hostels. Use your judgement as to how touristy where you’re going is. If its a city maybe look for a place, and don’t undervalue a free pick up, if its a town that you can walk just use sites as a guide. Pre booking gives up your power to barder, but if its high season its also necessary. Also arriving by train or bus you will probably be approached by accommodation reps, not at the airport. You NEED a hotel address to enter India.

India Mike is your forum for all things India.

Travel Fish is the equivalent for south east asia.
