    Stay at TTH which is quite near to the auroville ashram was memorable. The staff and also the owner Nikhil, was been very helpful. Would stay again on visiting auroville. If you need something or if you want any help, the owner will not just guide you but will do whatever he can for you.

    A must-visit off-beat hostel with a welcoming and friendly staff and a unique stay experience. Nikhil, the owner, has been living in the area for quite some time now, so his experience helps chalk out your itineraries too. The location is just perfect and there are dozens of restaurants and other eateries nearby too. You must definitely crash here when visiting Pondicherry , especially if you want to explore and stay close to Auroville!

    Time travellers hostel is perfect for a weekend getaway in the heart of Auroville. It is located right in front of the ashram road. The place is very chill with its huts and hammocks, which gives a very cool, almost a hippi vibe. You can even cook your own food! At night the place looks even prettier with all the lamps and the starry sky. Highly recommended!!

    This is was my first solo trip and I'm glad it was at Time travellers. The place has some amazing vibes and people. The hosts are great too- Nikhil literally took the trouble of picking me up personally before I checked in as I was lost!

    It's right opposite Visitor's Centre, so it's found easily, even in the night. Met lovely people, had good conversations. Network is a huge issue though, and the lack of WiFi. Probably good in a way, but it might leave you a little stranded

    Very Good

    Pros: No frills place for travelers looking for an escape. You'll meet a lot of good fellow travelers. Staff are helpful & keep premises clean. Located near Auroville. Lovely hammocks Cons: This isn't by the sea as claimed. The nearest beach is 7+ kms away and Pondicherry is ~15 kms away. Beware of getting ripped off by auto rickshaw drivers. Seasonal pricing of hostel is crazy (6-7 times of normal rates during peak season). Book in advance! No made food available in the hostel. Basic amenities

    The location is really good. But the other guests were smoking a lot while sleeping on hammocks in the late evening (10pm onwards). Unwantedly passive smoking was happening, as our beds were just above the hammocks. The music was enough loud to disturb our sleeps. Seems no rules have been followed. Could able to sleep only after the party happened.

    Worst hostel in India !!!! I tried to survive there for 24 hours but I left the hostel within 12 hours of time . I think hostels in Africa are far better than this .
