    Very friendly staff! When i told them about a sore throat issue i was having, they made me a delicious cup of tea ☺️ And the garden patio area in the back is seriously gorgeous; it's such a lovely place to take in the greenery, sunlight, and open coastal air of Pondi. The hostel location is ideal, within walking distance of anywhere you'd want to visit near the coast (including some fantastic cafés and restaurants). Only downside is no AC, so be aware if you have trouble sleeping in hot weather!

    Location: 1. Beaches are nearby 2. Good food joints at a walkable distance towards rock beach. Cleanliness: Bathrooms on the first floor have doors covered with palm tree branches. Bathrooms can be improved. Rooms: The 4 bed mixed dorm is good. VFM. Staff is friendly & the common room has a great travel ambiance.

    Quite nice place to stay for a couple of days and explore Pondicherry. There could be some improvement regarding the shower (add some more) and the beds which are not very comfortable. But we had a good stay overall. Helpful staff.

    The hostel didn't turn out to be as expected. It was in a dilapidated condition. Everything seemed out of the place.
