    The people at Loka House is what makes the place amazing. Anu, Charade the gang were so welcoming and make you feel part of their home community. From singing to jamming to great conversations. This alternative guest house has a relaxed atmosphere with all the comforts a traveller would need. The rooms are clean, bathroom functional and location just minutes from the Auroville town. Mopeds are available to rent and its only a short drive to anywhere. I would stay again!

    Auroville is a lovely place with some lovely people. The staff here at Loka house are very friendly and accommodating. WiFi was a little slow and only works in communal areas. Staff helped us with a list of places to see and arranged a mop head for us to get around on. We were able to make tea/coffee in the kitchen but a little disappointed that we couldn’t cook unless you were staying long term.
