Living as a paying guest in metropolitan cities like Bengaluru is a common custom for many of the individuals who come to the city as working professionals or students. With a plethora of prospects the paying guest facility has surfaced quickly here as the majority of people at least for professionals, fresh graduates or job seekers prefer independence, safety and economy living which a PG can provide compared to a hostel, though the meaning of a paying guest nowadays has transformed into a somewhat hostel like living conditions where people live in groups or shared rooms.
Some well established PG’s also come with support staff to take care of your needs which make staying at such accommodations a hassle free affair but it may vary from place to place.

Most PG’s are hygienic which offer daily service, maintenance and timely breakfast, lunch and dinner as one might prefer according to their time schedules.
