|Mitra Youth Hostel|
Mitra Youth Hostel was created in 2006 to provide accommodation facilities for students who wish to stay in Auroville to fulfill their educational needs. It is a two storey building located centrally in Auroville, behind Town Hall. It offers single rooms, double rooms, common spaces and a kitchen that provides breakfast and dinner. It is an ideal accommodation for students or volunteers visiting Auroville for the first time as the mixed crowd of young people helps visitors get acquainted with the town of Auroville.
