Home away from home ”

The owner and staff of the hostel were very friendly and helpful. I booked two days here - one being the single room on the rooftop. It was adequate for one person and cosy, equipped with a mosquito net. The balcony space is nice as well with the plants and the free space. I was so comfortable staying here that I came back a second time to just rest :) Bonus points for the adorable little dog who's the most wonderful company. The hostel is located just a few minutes away from the beach and the railway station as well. For the price that is charged, the facilities are perfect. If you're looking to book an AC room, do check with the owners before on what room you can book.

Horrible”

Seeing all the positive reviews, I Booked this hostel for 4 nights, but could only stay for 3. I called the owner one day before checkin and he told that we had an AC room booked. On arrival he asked for 300 more because room was for 2 adults and 1 child, even though I booked for 3 adults. I gave the money bcz I was tired from traveling and didn't want to argue. The room was horrible and unpleasant (given that he took us to another property of his). When I asked about the AC, he said we didn't book an AC room. On leaving he fought over transfer of 900 rs bcz I had rented scooty from him. I paid 1000 in cash and transferred 900 through upi. I was about to checkout early, because his behaviour ruined my trip, when he sent his manager who told that the owner didn't receive the money, even though I had proof of payment. I was fed-up and paid the 900 in cash again. I will never visit this pondicherry because of him as he completely ruined my trip through his behaviour. I would never recommend this place to anyone. I don't understand all the positive reviews.smh

J’avais réservé une chambre avec terrasse. Lorsque je suis arrivé on m’a proposé une minuscule chambre sans fenêtre dont la porte donne sur le bureau de réception et hall d’entree. Refusant, le personnel m’a logé dans une chambre comparable à celle que j’avais réservée mais dans un autre établissement à côté. Le lendemain j’etais sensé récupérer ma chambre qui était à nouveau disponible. Surprise : une micro chambre sur le toit de l’immeuble, sans fenêtre, avec un matelas au sol, glauque. J’ai refusé pour trouver un autre Hostel.
