I am not a hosteler so do not have enough knowledge to answer this particular question. I do live in a PG the average rent goes upto to 6-7000rs per person the facilities are fine the more you pay, the more facilities you get. Usually AC is provided or a cooler you have access to a kitchen and laundry services as well.
Our college has a wide range of facilities and resources with good ambience and healthy food for students and quality of hostels is very good as there is always a check on the students and the fees of the hostels is also feasible.
There is no hostel facilities available in the college. Only there are three or four rooms for sportsmen are available but their is no food availability.
I had many friends from hostel I could see they enjoyed the hostel life a lot mess food was average but somedays it was good they said. I lived in a pg so i had less experience about hostel of the college.
Hostel was average as when I joined DAV it was the first year of Co education. They were not haveing a girls hostel at that time so we were shifted to polytechnic college girls hostel Mess was average too. Food was very spicy.
Don't know much about the hostel facility but college contain a canteen and coffee house which is really good
Hostels is very good mess is very clean and have hygenic food to eat. Fees is reasonable and ac rooms are also to lives for boarder
