    After a frustrating day in which I arrived exhausted after dark, the staff was kind enough to physically escort me to the hostel, which was above and beyond the call of duty. I was the ONLY female there for four days so had a room to myself, and the facilities were spare but reasonably clean. For the price I paid it was worth it.

    Pretty good place, available at affordable rent and only about 600 meters from the city bus station. The staff are really friendly too and I stayed during Christmas which was even more fun. Thanks you all! Keep the place going and open for more travelers !

    Stay here if you want to live in a dorm where they turn off ac every time you turn it on. They say ac is not allowed in the day time. I mean why. We just arrived and wanted to take some rest. But they said ac will not be turned on in the day. Overall experience was okay.

    Would not recommend this hostel to international travellers. No atmosphere here & not good for meeting other backpackers. Location is good for bus station but not Pondicherry itself, you quickly spend the difference in hostel price paying for buses / rickshaws into town. Facilities personally not great relative to our experience, one western toilet located in 6 bed dorm but shared between 3/4 dorms so really just everybody at the hostel. Did have washing machine however which was super helpful.

    The hostel had good reviews and gave the location as being good. I wouldn’t say the staff were unfriendly just indifferent to me being there. Such a shame that with a little bit of effort it could be a nice place.

    No lockers, no shower (only bucket). Dirty. One washroom for 10 people, often busy with puking drunk or sleeping people.
