We where unlucky enough that our nightbus actually arrived on time at 5:30 and this was probably the only place open in this area. We checked in at 6, and our neighbours where just woken up 'you have five minutes'. 'Luckily' we could get an extra hour next morning and went to a much better place. Not cheap but a...

The room was ok, not very clean but also not very dirty.. The room had everything we needed beside mosquito net which was very missing!! The internet worked fine on the reception, no hot water, no towles. Cheap beers in the roof restaurant. In the overall if you are looking for a decent price (which is hard to find) for...

Worst hostel I've ever been to. The staff is nice but the boss is and idiot. Don't pay upfront! Cockroaches everywhere, rats and more. Very very bad!! Plus smells of rotten food on the first floor and it rains inside the bedrooms. Ruined my Pondicherri experience

Extremely rude staff and the rooms are damp and dirty. They charge you a bomb and offer very poor service. This is the worst hotel we have come across so far. they do not even provide drinking water or basic toiletries. There are far etter options around at a much cheaper cost. Just make sure that you plan your stay...

I should start out my review by saying that I did NOT stay here. However, on our first day in Pondi, we checked out the hotel. I asked the man at the front counter if he had any rooms for 300 rupees /night (non A/C) and he showed us a list of prices, which started at 550 rupees for a...

I am not sure if I should rate it good or bad. The room was clean. There is hot water in the mornings (bucket shower though). There is a bar that serves Heineken. And the location is fabulous. But they don't give you a blanket or a sheet. They don't give you a towel. They don't give you any soap....

In the heart of the old ' French' quarters this might be one of the best budget options in Pondicherry. The rooms are not much special, a bit small, but location, price and service are the main reasons (for me) to stay here, and to return when I go back to Pondicherry.

When we first checked in I was impressed with the shiny tiles on the floor and the cleanliness of the bathroom. The staff were friendly, the bed had clean sheets and a think mattress, it was easy to order food and drinks to the room, and the location is great as it is just a short walk to the sea...
