Earlier, the hostels used to mostly provide room, food and a place to laundry. Getting a proper hostel which is safe, secure and inexpensive was the only priority for students and working professionals. But, now the generation is different.

The generation today gives more importance to the facilities provided in the hostel. Along with security and safety, they prefer to have all those necessary resources, equipment and materials to live a convenient and comfortable life.

Uninterrupted power supply: Whether there is the power supply in the area or not, hostels should have generators with loaded power so that students can study at any time of the day.

24/7 internet connectivity: In a digital world a hostel without the internet is equal to food without water. As every individual depends on the internet for the information or other works having a 24/7 internet connectivity in the hostel gives a plus point to the hostel owners.

Ironing and Laundry facility: In this competition and fast growing world students hate to waste their time on laundry and ironing. So, it is important for a hostel to have ironing and laundry facilities.
