When coming to residence everyone having a confusion about which one is better either hostel or paying guest. First I should provide the proper difference between hostel and paying guest.
Hostel: A place where we can find different people from different regions. This is especially for bachelors who living with group of friends.
Paying guest: This is a place for families staying. This is similar to our home. Place where living with other families.
Now you can get the clear idea about the hostel and be paying guest. We have a wide variety of hostels and PG’s, especially in major cities. Because most of the people are shifting towards urban places due to job and studies. To provide residence many hostel and PG’s are constructed and keep going on. PG near Perungudi, OMR, Egmore, etc. is a better place for habitation.
Both hostel and PG is better for accommodation. It varies only according to yours needs and what type of persons. Now we can see which one is better.
- Rent: According to the rents, PG is two or three times higher than the hostel. But the amount you paying should be worthy. For the middle-class people and individuals, the hostel is a better choice. For family oriented people, paying guest is better for them.
- Safe: The main question we ask about our residence is safe and secure to live. According to safety, PG is better than a hostel. In both hostel and PG, we have securities so no chance of outside stealers but the problem is Inside. Because in PG you should stay with your family there is no need of scare about theft. But in the hostel, we are sharing our space with a stranger so it is riskier one and chance for theft.
- New relations: In hostel everyone is new to that place so how many of them you making a friend is new relation for you. But in PG people already staying with family so a little hesitation to mingling with others.
- Vast knowledge: In hostel people from different regions will share different experience and their cultures so it should be a great opportunity for increasing our knowledge and this little lesser in PG.
- Maintenance: People really expect the better maintenance which includes housekeeping, cleaners, laundry, watchman, etc. According to maintenance, PG is providing better services than a hostel.
