WE had a very pleasant stay at Nila home stay. The owner is very helpful and friendly. The neighbourhood is nice and pretty calm. The rooms are very priceworthy and spotlessly clean althochdeutsch the smell of the old house can may seem a bit irritating at first. But you get quickly ises to it. Would definitely stay there any time... More

Stayed at this homestay for the weekend. It is situated in the white town and all the places are very nearby. Host is very welcoming and rooms are quite big. There is a balcony in the property where you can sit and enjoy the view of the lanes of the whitetown.

Getting there: From the city bus stop you pay 80 Rupees to the auto. No more. The host is super chilled out and extended his warmest hospitality. He even helped arrange a cab for day-trip around Pondicherry. He speaks English and I am guessing French too (he told us has relatives in France) Facilities: Only one room does not have... More

Nila Homestay is one of the best guest houses one can go to especially when you're a student the budget is low. For 1500 per night we got the most comfortable, cleanest, safest and beautiful place to stay and we're forever thankful.

You get the feel of Pondicherry and its history in this home-stay run by people who ensure your comfort and well-being . Not a business like place at all . In the heritage zone, the built-form of NILA is one of the typical of Auro-French-Traditional Architecture.
