    It was a nice place to stay for reasonable price. Staff were very polite and helpful. Rajeshwar helped me in exploring Pondicherry by suggesting places and planning. I came to know about Pichavaram from him, a good place for boating.

    I took single room with bathroom. Room was in ground floor, very clean, no bugs, but humid, hot and badly ventilated. Next to kitchen. Roof is nice to chill out and maybe shared rooms in higher floors are better. I will never know.

    You can't say it's a hostel ! I booked a bed in dorm and they gave me a room ,it's more of a shabby hotel than hostel ! Maybe there was some construction going on so they gave me a room ! There's no ambience of hostel ! No common room ! No place to interact with fellow travellers. Although location is good

    When we booked Natura, we paid attention to the good reviews but wish we didn't. Pro's: Good Location Nice Rooftop area Cheap Con's Absolutely Filthy. The bedrooms had mould in, the bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. Uncomfortable beds Unwashed pillows Large windows/vents in the bedroom and bathroom meant we could hear everything going on in the hallway and neighbours bathroom. People sleeping in hallways Staff not around so had to call and wait for someone to check out

    Location was inconvenient and surroundings were not upto the mark. No power during the night, we had to vacate the property in the middle of a rainy night. The hostel must have power back up.
