Primary services you should look out for in a hostel

Living in a hostel during student life is the most cost-effective and enriching experience of a lifetime. Moving to a new place for starting a new phase of your life can be daunting at times and looking for accommodations to stay in is even more daunting. But Hive hostels are a safe and affordable option to consider amongst all the PGs and hostels that are available. We will tell you why we said so and let you make the choice. We make sure your stay is comfortable and worth the money you spend.

What needs to be there on a hostel's must-have list?

Cheerful common spaces and comfort

Hostels are not for short-term living, you can ignore some things because it is just a matter of a few days. While looking up you need to take into account that the hostel can be your home for a couple of years, and it needs to be a space that speaks to you in every sense. Each aspect, be it food, room size, or washrooms should be according to your expectations.

More importantly, the common areas should be lively and the hostel should be equipped with a gym, Tv room, and sports area which would have both indoor and outdoor games. You cannot be sitting in your room hooked up to your phone or laptop every time. You need to get out and mingle with others, develop a new skill, and learn from others. What is the best way to do all this other than catching up with others in the common area and getting to know others and making new friends and new memories?

Good Hygiene is an unsaid must

A clean washroom is a necessity rather than a service. No matter where you are, unclean washrooms are a real deal breaker in any case. While living in a hostel it is common to share washrooms, which can be a bit uneasy because of the whole sharing thing, unless you opt for a single occupancy room. But we at Hive Hostels make sure that our washrooms are cleaned each day and sanitized along with. If the washrooms are kept clean then it becomes easier to share and it is healthy too. We try to maintain the utmost quality of hygiene in the hostel, be it our kitchens or common areas and even your rooms, which our housekeeping staff cleans regularly.


A well-connected transport facility is a must for any hostel, not only it is less troublesome when you are going in or out of the city, but well-connected means that you have a transport facility available 24*7. So be it a late-night party or college fest, we would ensure that you reach back safely to the hostel. In addition, we have malls, cafes, and hospitals in the vicinity to make your life easier.

No boundations or rules

We at Hive hostel believe when you enter a college, you become mature enough to decide right and wrong for you. And that is why we don't impose any rules on the residents. We expect you to be in decent behaviour where you respect the ones who are living with you.

Unlimited Wi-Fi

This is an obvious one, but still to put it out there. We have free high-speed Wi-Fi and that too unlimited. Having a good connection is a must and is an essential part of our lives, for all that binge-watching and streaming or gaming or just scrolling insta.

Yummy food

While we provide fresh and hot meals which are breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in the evening with team/coffee, we also welcome you to the kitchen when you are feeling fancy and want to cook something yourself. We have the kitchen essentials, and you can use them at any point in time without any restrictions. Our kitchen staff is trained well, and they make the best meals, unlike those hostels which serve watery dal and papad rotis. You could even request them to make you something else when you are not feeling like having what is made for the day and it all gets taken care of. We serve fresh food which is healthy and tasty at the same time.

Recreational activities

As the saying goes "All work and no play made Jill a dull boy", well we don't want that for you. We have made sure that you have your fair share of fun and frolic in college life. We have a gaming zone with tennis tables, carrom, chess, Jenga and many more games. We also have basketball and badminton courts in our hostels so that you do not have to go outside and spend more money on buying memberships for them. At Hive Hostels, we have a gym and roof-top yoga facilities available in the hostels, and all of this is already included in your stay with no extra charges. Now it is up to you to make the best use of these facilities.

Summary: While choosing a hostel some facilities are a must-have and should not be ignored at any cost. At hive hostels, we have made sure to check all the boxes for the must-haves. Get in touch with us for more information.
