You may be curious about the benefits of renting a paying guest (PG) accommodation. Guardians and their wards often worry that PGs will not be as safe as college hostels, or that managing things in a PG will be challenging.

What’s better, a PG or a flat?

Renting a PG is much cheaper than renting a flat. A typical PG calculates rent per bed, so you know exactly how much you’ll have to pay each month. Renting a flat may not be the same. Rent can be reduced if you share a room with your friends, for example. You may be responsible for paying the full rent if one or more roommates vacate. 

How does a PG differ from a hotel?

You will be able to shortlist one of your choices quite easily given the large number of PG accommodations coming up. The majority of PGs offer three meals a day, spacious rooms and essential furniture, common entertainment and leisure areas, and even maintenance staff to help with daily chores. Furthermore, these features can be customized to meet your needs.

The benefits of living in a PG 

In Indian cities, most PGs place a great deal of emphasis on comfort, hygiene, and food for students. The maid is usually available to prepare food of the student’s choice and provide room service.

Social advantages of living in a PG

PG accommodations are also a great place to connect with other students and professionals and discuss one’s growth, career, companies, etc. Such knowledge comes only with sharing time with like-minded people.
