The prestigious institutions, rich cultural heritage, and the sea of opportunities, in the national capital of Delhi NCR, give hope of a better lifestyle to many migrant students and working professionals coming from various parts of India as well as the world. But unfortunately, all these migrants face a lot of difficulty in finding the right place to lodge. Even if they manage to find good accommodation, finding a PG that provides quality services at affordable prices is difficult. Since the cost of the accommodation majorly depends on the location, it is important that you do a thorough search and find PGs located at places where you can find better facilities at lower costs.
If you are also planning to give wings to your career ambitions in Delhi and are looking for the best locations in the capital for hostels, here is the list of most preferred localities for students as well as working professionals, where you’ll find some of the best PG in Delhi.

North Campus hosts some of the top colleges of Delhi University and hence attracts the majority of students who settle in the vicinity. Places like Kamla Nagar, Vijay Nagar, Roop Nagar, Model Town, Hudson Lane, are major student hubs where you can find both managed as well as traditional PG options for your stay. You will find the vibe of student life at almost every corner of these places, from Bungalow Road with its student supply and bookstores to popular cafés, salons, and shopping outlets dotting the entire Kamala Nagar area, there is a lot to explore. It is also fairly close to offbeat spots like the Tibetan Monastry area, monuments that speak of the city’s heritage, and the banks of the famous Yamuna river which has seen the rise of Delhi’s cosmopolitan demographic.
If your college is at South Campus then you can look for PGs in Satya Niketan, Hauz Khas, South Ex, etc. However, Satya Niketan being the closest will not only be lighter on your pockets but provide you the most value for money with professionally managed accommodation that takes care of everything – from food to housekeeping, laundry to internet. You can find PGs ranging from 4K – 20 K in this area. It also has a few funky student cafes like Big Yellow Door, The Woodbox Cafe, etc. Much like North Campus, this area is also very well connected by metro to most parts of Delhi.
Mukherjee Nagar and Laxmi Nagar
The two major coaching hubs in the city, Mukherjee Nagar and Laxmi Nagar attract IAS and CA aspirants. Students usually settle here to avoid travel time to their coaching institutes. They also have cheap eating out options around the institutes. Being surrounded by likeminded people who are all preparing for competitive exams not only gives you easy access to notes and tips but creates a congenial student environment where you can support and help each other.
Once you decide on the locality, you will have to go to that location and look for the PG which suits your requirements. But we recommend skipping the hassle of going through dreary lanes and negotiating with different landlords. You can just book a visit to a managed accommodation property like Stanza Living across locations, where you can find amenities like food, WiFi, laundry, housekeeping, furnished rooms at affordable prices. Now you can also enjoy your city life and focus on achieving your goals, without wasting time on figuring out lifestyle needs. After all, Delhi does not happen to everyone!
