  • Description


    Atithi Devo Bhavah in Sanskrit means "The guest is God“. We believe and apply this proverb for the ultimate satisfaction of each of our clients.


    My name is Sudheesh. I am originally from the state of Kerala but moved to Pondicherry 17 years ago. I opened this hostel in November 2018 aspiring to welcome all travelers coming to Pondicherry and offering a "home away from home" atmosphere.

    I am looking for responsible people who want to help me improve the hostel and realizing my ideas.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn how to prepare typical south Indian dishes, participate in Kalaripattu (south Indian martial arts) or join the yoga classes on the rooftop. The universal township of Auroville is only 10 kilometers outside of Pondicherry and well worth a visit. Needless to say, Pondicherry has a lot of beautiful beaches, temples, cafes, restaurants and other experiences to offer 🙂

  • Help


    I am looking for openminded and outgoing people who will work with me as part of a team. We will share the daily reception duties (check-in/out process, showing the guests around etc). I will always be around to help you with your questions.
    If your good with social media I would be happy if you could keep it updated with pictures and news of the hostel.
    If you are an artist or handyman you can help me with the rooftop (I want to move the kitchen from the ground level to the rooftop, open a comfy common room and decorate a room where the yoga classes will take place)
    So there are a variety of opportunities where you can participate and share your ideas and thoughts with me.
    The most important thing for me is that we get along well and that you will welcome our guests with a smile and help them with their questions and needs.
