Mitra Youth Hostel

Mitra Youth Hostel was created to provide better accommodation facilities for students who wish to stay in Auroville to fulfill their educational needs. It started functioning in 2006 with the help of generous grant in aid from SAIIER.

Mitra Youth Hostel is a two storey building located at the center of Auroville, behind the Town Hall, about 200 meters away from the Matrimandir.

The students had been staying in single rooms with attached bathroom & toilet, double rooms, and dormitory rooms with common bathrooms & toilets for the floor. Now we have altered all of the dormitories into double rooms, due to large groups of students making too much noise and neighbors complaints. So based on this situation we have undertaken another building which is located in Udavi School, with dormitories for large groups of students.

We have a conference hall which can be used to conduct any group meetings. We also have a small library with books about Auroville and Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. Wi-Fi internet facilities are available.

Mitra Youth Hostel offers discounted rates when students want accommodation for at least one month.

We have a common kitchen that provides breakfast and dinner. The students have to manage to arrange for lunch outside the hostel. Students are not allowed to access the hostel kitchen. Laundry is done by washing machine only.
