Stayed for about a week. Positives: Quite neat and tidy, very simple rooms but maintained well. Bathrooms are very clean The location is the biggest plus....everything of interest is pretty close.

Nice place with some cheap and nice small houses as rooms. The installations are pretty good and the food too. The only bad thing is some of the staff, that are not as friendly as you would expect. For the rest, it is a very nice and comfortable place.

The managers were the most unhelpful, unfriendly, grumpy people I've ever come across in my travels. The other Indian staff didn't care about the guests at all. The meals are supposed to be included in the cost of accomodation, but the... More

Auroville is a man made forest and the whole place belongs to the Aurobindo Ashram. Central guesthouse is well located in Auroville, very close to Matrimandir. Central Guesthouse provides with all meals and rooms are clean and artist. It is a guesthouse. Food was not quite good.
