In the era of Instagram and Pinterest, you don’t want your own hostel space anything less than Instagram-worthy. Everything comes with a price, but what if we tell you that you can kick off an expensive hostel room from this list. We understand during student life most of the time you do not want to splurge on things that do not matter much. But having a beautiful, cozy hostel room to back to after a long day would be something to look forward to and needless to say comforting. Here we are with some tips on how to revamp your student accommodation on a shoestring budget. We are sure that you would find a way to make your hostel room stand out and feel like home by reading this. 

1. Bold and beautiful 

If you are not a fan of mix and match, or you do not have the time, energy, and budget to source multiple things for your wall, then a big, bold, beautiful piece is what you should go for. Don’t go extravagant with the size, bear in mind the dimensions of your room, wall, and the other items placed in the room. You can go for a single painting, a statement clock, a big fancy vase, a luxurious accent chair, anything you feel like accentuates the hostel room and more importantly elevates the room and fits well in the budget would work wonders. 

2. If you got it flaunt it

An open, minimalistic book rack works well in both small and big PGs for boys and girls. It doesn’t take much space while also not giving a suffocating look. Buying a book rack won’t put a hole in your pocket for sure. You can explore some local flea markets or old furniture markets and get some pretty pleasing deals there. 

You can design it up in numerous permutations and combinations. Flaunt your collection of books, vinyl, collectibles, and plants, the list is endless. Whatever you feel defines you and the world should see it, DISPLAY IT!

3. Light it up

When we say lights, we urge you not to picture a pink room with fairy lights. Lighting if done accurately, is the prettiest and the coziest thing in the student accommodation. When it comes to lights, the possibilities are diverse. Put them on the walls, on the floor, in the balcony etc etc. You can have from tea lights to lamps anything which sets the right tone for your hostel accommodation. If you go for lamps especially you would not have to worry much about the budget much. Right sourcing would make sure you get it all lighted up on a light budget. While searching for PG for boys or girls make sure the room has enough daylight already, and you would not have to be dependent on the artificial light throughout the day. Keep these lamps for elevating your student accommodation at night only.

4. Coloring your way

We know most of the rooms are already painted. And our rooms especially are set with warm undertones that won't put a strain on your eyes and mind much. But, if in case you want to get more creative and you have got time and budget for some DIY, you can change the wall color to something that defines you, and gels in well with your vibe and aesthetic. With all this being said, painting your PG room can be tricky! You absolutely do not want your hostel room to look like a colored mess. Choosing the right according to the light, dimensions, and aesthetic of your space in a manner that it looks best hostel space is indispensable. Room decor brightens when the color you put on the wall stands out. Accentuating a single wall lifts the spirits of the whole room. Splash it up with an electrifying blue or a bright yellow and tone it down with subtle furniture and minimal yet elegant décor. 

5. Mirror says it all

If you do not have the time, energy, and budget for all the above things, then also we have got you. Be it a hostel accommodation or PG for boys and girls they would all require a Mirror. A mirror can serve multiple purposes. You need it to get ready, and for other routine stuff, one does. While it does the basic job of helping you get dressed up and ready, a mirror when used in the right way can serve as a room decor too.

A statement mirror just like a statement wall can make a huge transformation in the way your hostel room decor would turn out. It would make your space look bigger and brighter. A vintage framed mirror would give a chic look to your student room decor. You can choose many frames and styles according to your liking and exalt your room decor. 


Summary: We all need a comfortable Student hostel or PG when it comes to staying in there for the long run. We at Hive Hostels ensure that your room is designed as per your liking and makes you feel cozy and comfortable. Do get in touch for more details regarding room booking and other queries.
