Life dances on your finger-tunes and you are free like a free bird. Just an eagle is the king of the sky with the whole world beneath its feet, you get the wing like an eagle.
No worries of parents’ scolding, doing whatever your heart says, your desires manifested and fun at its helm. All are the pros of living a hostel life. As the popular belief says, a child gets spoilt if kept in the hostel, that’s not true.
First, it will be the communal area. Spacious shared rooms in the hostels which allow you to meet new interesting people who may become your friends, fellow housemate along the hostel journey or assignment discussion mate. These days, having the right connections can be quite the key in setting your future. So, what would be the better way of networking than while you are studying?
Staying in the hostel with convenient store around may be a great way of buying something with reasonably priced items. On the other hand in the hostel area, you would end up paying much more.

In addition, some of the hostels do provide shuttle service to public transport station for free.
