My partner and I stayed at Kailash guesthouse for a few days on our second visit to Pondicherry. The owner, Manu, was a very friendly and helpful man who went out of his way to ensure our stay at his guesthouse was as pleasant as possible. We paid Rs 1000 p/n for a non-ac room which was clean and comfortable,... More

This is the hospitality style I’m looking for: homely and authentic indian with clean room and facilty as the hot shower 24h running and confortable bed. The rate is really fair, here you find value for money. And, on the top of that, they are kind and helpful. Another excellent indian staying along my way, thank you.

Stayed here 2 nights on my motorbike trip around the south of india. Very friendly owner! Single fan rooms are small but clean and cosy. Free Wifi and a nice communal area with a bar, TV, books, ... Good location and value for money.

We had two rooms with a/c. They are simple and small but just what you need. Manu was great, he helped us organise a private car to drive us to our next city. The staff are very caring and helpful and don't expect tips. The guesthouse has a lovely vibe and is in a good location.

Just the thing we wanted. Snug and clean little room for a nice price. Fan rooms are really cosy, AC- rooms maybe a little dark. Nice balcony with a view and a cool breeze. Staff was super nice and friendly, the owner is a really kind man. 5 out of 5

This has been our favourite place to stay throughout our month in India. Manu is so lovely and welcoming you feel right at home straight away, nothing you ask is a bother and he is more than happy to go out of his way to help make your stay as pleasant as possible. Rooms are simple but clean Great location... More

I arrived in Pondicherry some weeks ago, and to Kailash after being ripped off by a rickshaw driver (300 rupees to be exact) - putting me in a less than inspired mood about Pondicherry as a whole, and considering this was within the first couple of days of arriving in India, I would consider this to be a bad start...

Great location, clean neat rooms and friendly enough staff. A shame they don't serve food or open the bar often, however that was probably due to it being the off season. A tip for the owners, clean the air con filters. Ours wasn't working too well at all the first few nights, opened it up to discover the filter clogged... More

I had a lovely four-night stay at Kailash Guest House. The rooms are basic but very clean. There is hot water. The wifi worked in my room. The lobby lounge is great to hang out and meet other guests or have a cold drink. The location on Mission Street is perfect---steps from shopping and the excellent central market or a... More

Stayed here for three nights, great location with really friendly staff. There is a large common are with tons of comfy seating an coffee tables with a good wifi connection. Wifi is not available in the rooms, if you reached your device off the balcony sometimes a signal would connect. The road is noisy, but when the windows are shut,... More
