Hostel or PG?

Now, there is no easy answer to it. But we have narrowed down onto some key points which would help you to pick your choice.


Starting with the most essential thing first. There is no doubt that hostel costs you way cheaper than PG(Paying Guests). So, if you are already struggling to save money then, hostel is the best choice, but having said that you might be able to find some cheap PGs too, but again the quality would be poorer than hostel then whats even the point of it.

2. Food:

Some PGs provide you the facility of food, but usually since PGs have capacity to upto 20 people, they are able to serve way better food than hostel. But mostly every hostel have the provision of food, even if the quality if poor it saves you from the hassle of thinking every time what to eat?

3. Security:

This is essential for girls out there that hostels have way more security than PGs to an extent we can say that hostel are safe. At the end all the cost and comfort can’t be compared to the security for sure!

Yes, PGs are way more comforting filled with decent furniture and daily necessities and also in PG, you have the power to live in single room or share it with two whereas in hostel, every room is constructed in the similar way and in initial years you might have to share with 6 people and adjust with it!
