I have been traveling India for 3 months now and we were expecting good things from this ashram. We arrived at 9am and were told we could book the room for 11am, so during these two hours, I searched for a functioning ATM, which proved fruitless due to the demonitization problems India is currently facing. In these two hours my...

After I finally got over the shock of lack of frills, I started to appreciate the charm of this place. I have never seen any place as clean as this guest house!!! We generally stay in five star hotels but choose this place since it is connected to the ashram. First, you need to book and pay in advance with...

This place is ULTRA clean. There is even a slight smell of bleach when you walk in. Ok the staff is not overly friendly, although I managed to get a smile or two. There are the 'rules', but honestly if you're not here for party and you don't drink or smoke, it's not so bad. Also the rooms are very...

This is an excellent place to stay . Quite close to he beach and the French Resturant hub. Please book in advance though. Or else you can go to the Central Office (check the timeing). The best thing that I liked about this place is you can hire a Cycle for 75INR per day

This place was the cleanest place we had in all India but they will not show you the room before you pay because this is an ashram place. It is situated on the calm place. Maybe the only drawback is that you have to leave the key at the reception. Speaking about the town Pondicherry there is just nothing interesting...

Rooms are modest with only bed, a small cupboard to keep your things, a chair and a mirror. The bathrooms are clean and hygienic. It has a decent shower and a wash basin as well. You can have simple vegetarian...

The negatives first. You have to get back before 10.30 PM and maintain an acceptable level of silence after 9 PM. Hot water has to be fetched in buckets, no impromptu lunch or dinner order in the canteen, they have to be booked in advance. The canteen is slow. But then, these are all declared upfront and it is your...
