We’ve all daydreamed of moving into a dorm as soon as we graduate from high school. We all believed hostels were wonderful places when we were kids. Nonetheless, dorms have a terrible reputation in Indian colleges because of a slew of rumors. In today’s world, Indian institutions offer some of the most luxurious lodgings in the world, rivalling even the best hotels. Learning will be more fun if you have a wide range of amenities at your educational institution, such as big rooms and beautiful views from the hostels. College is a new chapter in one’s life. As you go on this new journey, you’ll meet people from many occupations, learn new skills, and take on more duties. One of the most life-altering experiences for most college students is the move to dorms. 

At first, the transition to a new city and a new roommate is a little awkward. After a few months living in a hostel, we’ve all experienced homesickness. The naive hosteller’s guide to the new roller coaster ride that is hostel living is a must-read before venturing out on your own. So many questions arise in our mind related to hostels like what if our dean is a strict person? although they have all the right to be. What if newcomers face ragging issues? What if we don’t get to eat good food? and there are so many like that. These are just a few of the many ways that travelling as a couch surfer will brighten your otherwise gloomy existence. A unique college experience will rely on your major and the surrounding conditions, so be prepared for the unexpected.

It’s hard to overstate the impact that staying in a hostel can have on your life. You can check out some of the best hostels in India by clicking here.
