New to the city and looking for a place to stay?
The challenge for every tourist, student, youth and woman arriving in a large Indian city is to find safe, comfortable and economical accommodation. This is where hostels step in. Most of the Universities in India have hostels but these are solely for boys and girls studying in the respective institutions.
Hostels provide basic accommodation with multiple beds or bunk-beds in each room and common bathrooms. Some provide laundry facilities as well as a mess service. Hostels serving students and women may have a curfew system as per which inmates need to be indoors by the prescribed hour.
The duration for which one can stay in hostels varies. Men’s hostels as well as hostels serving backpacking tourists are usually for short-term stay. Hostels for working single women provide long-term accommodation but on getting married, the women would have to move out.
Privacy is hostels may be limited but that drawback is more than compensated by the bustling environment which provides opportunities to meet people from different backgrounds as well as to develop friendships, not to speak about the highly affordable tariffs.
