Hall facilities are good though. and this depends on which hall you get. but, generally, one gets 3 bedded room in 1st year and second year. and single rooms in next years forever..mess!! mess is really messy. the food is not up to mark. u wont get good food in mess. though there are canteens and restaurants but they are a bit expensive. But, one can live.
Hostels rooms are not actually up to the mark they actually old buildings of 1950's but about the mess food I can say that it really delicious and good to have the average rents for the hostel is about 17000 for annual and the mess charges are also good it is about 24000 annually.
Hostel facilities are awesome. We are provided with single rooms, double bed rooms or rooms which accomodate three students. 24x7 supply of unlimited internet is a delight. The amount of information and contents available on LAN is great. However, the food quality is not at par with our expectations. Other than that describing our hostel life in one word- Awesome.
4.5 would not give a 5 for it is certainly not the most perfect thing I found. But certainly its better than any hostel I have been in since my childhood. Food is good. Hostels are even good certainly the figure is coherent with the standard of the college.
The hostels are two types. One are the old hostels and other being the new hostels. The culture at IIT KGP is the Hall culture where you complete with other halls throughout the year. Old hostels have a decent facility and new hostels are pretty good. The fun lies in Old hostels.
This is the only area i would say in which IITs lag is this, the mess food is way below par than what we expect and that is one major drawback but that is expected as they collect from us very less money for mess food and hostels( way less than other institutions) but it isn't way bad so that it isn't edible, when we consider the position of many others who are struggling to get food our position is far better, it a way teaches us the value of food and money, again for the hostels they aren't world class but they are manageable, again teaching us to be happy with what we have.
As IIT is being run by goverment. HEre's hostals are not good not furnished. in first year we have to share a room in between 3 persons, by this students get aware about other state can learn other culture. Also mess food is also not too good but Breakfirst is good and a heavy breakfirst. usually food being made in viewing the perspective of student care and made under supervisor.
The hostel buildings are quite old but we are given all the facilities (water cooler,washing Machine,study table) except the Coolers or ACs. Since it is really hot in the months of march and april so that is the only issue. The mess food is also fine with lovely breakfast.
Hostel life is really good. There is everything that is required and most of the operations and fund management are handled by Students. The lifestyle is quite lively with people practicing competitively for the inter hall all the time and lot of other events happening. Mess food may not be the best but it is sufficient to survive.
Hostel facilities are very good except the food. Food quality needs to be improved. Otherwise, any problem in the hostel like fans, lights,washing machine etc. is solved in minimum possible time. Cleanliness in the hostel is also good enough. Sweeper comes everyday for cleaning our room. Caretakers try their best to maintain the hostel's hygiene.
