    We loved our stay at the Red Lollipop. Especially the staff were very friendly and helpful, showing us popular places to eat and how to take the buses to mahabalipurum/pondicherry. It's a very easy to take the government buses from Chennai to these places. The beds were big and comfortable with curtains for privacy, cool AC rooms, and clean bathrooms. They offer toast and jam in the mornings. The common room was a lovely place to relax also. I would definitely recommend staying here!

    Amazing vibes! I stayed long term and made so many friends and had a ton of adventures. Kalai and deepa are amazing and helped me in so many ways. The beds are comfy and I stayed in the female dorm which had a nice changing room with lockers. The only thing I would recommend is that the toilets be a bit cleaner and have a designated female shower and toilet, as there were many times there was pee on the toilet from men not putting the seat up. also Wi-Fi on the terrace

    Very helpful staff, hostel is located close to main attractions. Even better, if you plan to travel from Chennai to Mahabalipuram/ Pondi. Found it too price to pay 800 INR for the hostel. There are much better ones available for less than 500 in other major cities in India. All good things at the place, except not value for money. But sadly, not many other options in town either.
