A really cool hostel especially if you're looking for something a little different from the typical back packer experience. The owners run the place with a real social ethos and I enjoyed volunteering with a project teaching art to local kids. A great opportunity to meet and mingle with many Indian guests, all of whom are from outside Pondicherry and have come to the city to work. It was great to share points of view and learn about every day life in Pondi, Tamil Nadu and south India.

As a solo traveller I would be reluctant to recommend this place to fellow solo travellers as it lacks in atmosphere and there aren't too many opportunities to meet other people but as a group it would be nice enough. Its very much a 'do it yourself' sort of vibe here and the staff don't really interact with the travellers at all. There were a few times where I wasn't even sure who was working and who wasn't. Still its near the beach and a nice enough place.
Hi, thanks for a honest feedback which actually reflects the present conditions of the community, as the founder I am not involved much into the community activities these days the vibe has changed a lot, I will work on it and try my level best to bring back the interactive environment at the earliest.
