Alternative to PG or hostel? Coliving it is

When we move out of our parents’ home, we begin a new chapter in our life. It becomes imperative we take each step cautiously and smartly. Being on our own is exhilarating as well as intimidating. Exhilarating as you can now live your life on your own terms and intimidating as one wrong step can have devastating effect on your life and wellbeing.

One of the first and the most important things that needs considerable thought is an accommodation. A place to stay. A place where you can crash in after a hard day at work or study. Somewhere you can just be.

So, what are the options for a newbie in a big and expensive city like Mumbai?





Rental House



So, let’s talk about PG or Hostel.

The full form of PG is paying guest. In this type of accommodation; you stay as a guest in someone else’s home and pay for it. Most likely; it would be a room in a flat which may or may not have even basic facilities, access to kitchen or other areas of the house. Add to this, the complete power that the landlord yields due to lack of any documentation. The fear of getting evicted for flimsy grounds in real.

Even students and working professionals face similar issues at hostels. Facilities are very basic and rules are extremely strict. There is no scope of enjoyment.

All these makes staying in a PG or a hostel a nightmare.

So, is there an alternative to PG or hostel?

Is it possible to find a comfortable living space that is neat and clean, complete with modern amenities and facilities, affordable, takes care of your daily chores like cleaning and is near your place of work or study?

A warm and comfortable living space that gives you the cosiness of home even when you are away from it?

Too good to be true. Isn’t it?

Yes. Coliving is an alternative to PG or Hostel.

Co-living is a modern concept that involves shared living spaces where strangers can share an apartment that has separate private spaces along with a common area, kitchen and shared amenities.

Here it is a perfect mix of privacy and social life which is missing in the traditional concept of PG or a hostel. You can easily find an accommodation near your place of work with like-minded people from different walks of life and backgrounds.

Coliving is the answer to housing issues faced by newbies as it gives you the best of both worlds. It also gives you a sound social infrastructure that manages all your daily needs and chores in style while it gives you some private space to call your own without many restrictions.

The co-living concept is being offered in several cities where there is a constant influx of newcomers in large numbers due to work or study.
