There were plenty of hostel rooms available. We got hostel room within a week of admission to college. The hostels of Maulana Azad Medical College were very clean and maintained. It was on sharing basis initially but after 1st year, we got independent rooms. The mess food was tasty and very much affordable.
Hostels were good and generally available to most students by 6 to 12 months. Mess was also reasonable. nearby markets and location of college was great too. Hostel fees was again very nominal.
