“I think a major part of a student’s life is spent in the hostel they stay in and hence it should not be confined to a room, rather a student must have access to amenities such as Gym, Library, Yoga room, Gaming zones, Cafeteria Etc. So, considering the fact that, unlike the past, this new generation is drawn together by lifestyle choices and prefers residential spaces that are more flexible and social, we thought of providing a safer and more reliable choice,” says Bharat Agarwal, Director, Hive Hostels.

For instance, the Hive Hostels Application, via which customers can interact and provide feedback on the services and facilities explore & update food options, along with access to avail deals and discounts on nearby shops.

“I’ve lived in two different hostels for my first and second year and I chose Hive for third and it is my favorite so far, the food is usually a major concern which I never had to worry about here, it was great. Management helped us throughout, everything was very hygienic. If you’re looking for a safe, comfortable place near to the college, I highly recommend this,” says Avi Agarwal, a student living at Hive Hostel for a consecutive third year.

In this heightened crisis, Hive Hostels is taking proactive preventive measures like weekly sanitization, temperature check, mandatory PPE Kit for staff members, and Social distancing to safeguard the health and safety of the students and working professionals.

We do not believe in compromising when it comes to the living space, hence, we have upgraded our facilities that are not only comforting but also set apart from others. We are now working towards giving Hive a more social outlook by adding a community perspective and adhering to the belief of practicing harmonious living by conducting workshops, organizing sports events, and other social gatherings. We plan to gradually over a period of next 2 years expand to all major cities where there is expected to be a large inflow of outstation students and to provide them the premium quality life at a very reasonable price.”
