See how can you get a good experience in PG accommodations

girls-pg

If you are out of your hometown for a better education or due to your job you are living in a hostel; then new atmosphere, discipline, and the restriction must be irritating you. It is unpleasant for the first time when you are staying as a paying guest.

In fact, if you see it in another way this lifestyle is an excited one where you meet strangers and become friends. PG life is the life which becomes best memories when you met with some good people. These memories never get dissolve years after.

If it’s a girls pg accommodation or you are looking for or boys pg accommodation; there are few important points that need to remember –

Sharing and adjustments

Sharing habits become flourished once you start living in a paying guest accommodation. Also, you get best classes of ‘adjustment’ in a PG. You choose your friends and even life partner, but it sometimes isn’t in your hands to decide on your roommates so it’s not easy to adjust with them.
It can be more difficult when your roommate is from another state, but this experience can be more beneficial in your lifespan.

Acknowledging the small matter

Always use earphone or play music at low volume. Sometimes mobile ringtone and message tones can be irritating others so make phone volume at the low level while in the room. Never talk loudly over a phone while you are in the room with your roommates. Never make a discussion out of your roommate’s personal chat over the phone. It can lead to a clash.

Exchange your contact numbers

Always exchange your roommate numbers along with hostel numbers which can be helpful in needs or when you stuck in a bad situation. If possible, you can share your roommate number with your parents with permission so that in case your number is not reachable they can contact your roommate. You should share your numbers also for the same concern.

Keep your focus on study

Girls studying

Always be helpful and friendly with your hostel friends but never interfere in their personal matters. Set your focus on studying rather than indulge yourself into their issues. If others are disturbing you then understand them, the limit otherwise keeps this in the notice of property manager.

Use eye band or ear plug

Always keep both eye band and ear plug with you because your roommate may have habits like studying in the night, talking over with friends and listing music or watching movies on a laptop. By using eye band and ear plug, you can sleep easily at night.

Participate in get-together

Never get indulge into your studies so much that you may cut yourself from other things in life.
Always participate in parties and get-together organized in your paying guest house. It definitely will develop your personality.

Keep healthy snacks with you

Sometimes you may get bored with the regular food so always keep healthy snacks, dry fruits, and packed food items. If you are habitual of studying late night then snacks can give you a punch of good energy.

Friendly nature

Try to be sweet and as simple as you can with others. No matter how unfriendly your warden is you shouldn’t forget to be antiquated because if you move to another hostel doesn’t guarantee that your next hostel warden will not be the same.

Don’t show-off

Never show off your expensive things and never make your fancy items and mobile gadgets your status symbol.

Safety check

Never get out without locking your door. Always keep your eyes on your expensive clothes and items because it can vanish till the blink of eyes. Always keep your face wash, lotion, shampoo etc. in a pocket after using it otherwise your hostel mates can dry them us by using it and you will be like blank while you need it. Same as you should avoid using other’s personal items. That will give a straight message to other that you are not interested in sharing such things.

Why Safety Is So Important in Accommodation Business

Security, this can make or break your trust

Security is a major issue in business related to accommodation. Whether it’s a Guest House, Hotel, Paying Guest House or Ceremonial hall; providing a fully secure and calm atmosphere is the utmost job for a host.

To achieve this objective, one has to follow Government norms, staff training, educating guests about the emergency situation. Accommodation manager has to think beyond policies and term when they need to host open events.

Following Government Norms

Almost every government does have some norms related to accommodation segment so that a proper safe and sound place to live can be provided to guests. It including of following:

  • Fire Safety with Regular Fire Drills
  • Disaster Management
  • Updated Safety Equipment
  • Information Sign Boards for guests and staffs
  • Government Certifications

 

Apart from this an accommodation especially hotels and guest houses must provide proper information to its guests in verbal and document as well.

 

Training of Staff

It’s been seen every time that in the case of a fire or any other disaster incident people stuck into the situation didn’t use any safety equipment already available there which not only can save their lives but stop disaster activity to spread.

So it’s a very important to give training to your staff disaster at regular intervals. Which includes of how to use safety types of equipment, what to do when disaster happens, how to help guest escape from situation to a safe place.

 

Educating Guests

It’s very important to educate your guests when they enter the premises. Have a get together by asking for the ½ hour of time from their important schedule. Offer them drinks at the meeting and also include them in training activities; let them enjoy operating the fire extinguisher and water jet pipes. This definitely will give a message to guests that how important their security is for hotel management

 

Regular Mock drilling

Regular mock drills are a very crucial in keeping everybody’s attention on the topic ‘safety’. Always keep organizing mock drills at your place which as we already told that keep your guest feel safe. The mock drill should be done under the supervision of experts and sometimes with a fire department. One plus point come up with this that in a case of any fire broken out; fire department who earlier organized mock drills will easily observe the situation and it definitely is helpful in the serious situation.

 

Keep Eye on the Strangers

Don’t let the strangers wander in or around your properties. It is the basis security breach and you must keep a check-in and check-out system at your property. Every entry must be check before entering the premises. The vehicle also must be pass checkpoints before parked in or out. Every guest or personnel must provide an identity proof with his/her contact number before proceeding into accommodation.

 

Digital Recording

Every property that comes under any commercial activities must have the digital security system. It is a proven technique that with CCTV camera you can prevent the crime to be taken place up to 60% of the time. So it’s a feature that your properties must have installed. It also helps you keep an eye on suspicious activities and you may present it as proof in any circumstances.

 

How it is beneficial

  • It let guests feel safe
  • Stop any man-made mistakes most of the time
  • It controls theft like activities
  • It’s human nature to be in a safe place so your hotel reservation may increase

  • 24*7 Water and electricity – These two are the fundamental facilities in a PG accommodation and if PG owner failed to provide these two then guests immediate back-off from that PG house.

  • Lack of utensils for guests – In a PG which is converted from a home lacks the basic item like utensils. Guest often face this issue in unprofessional PGs were girls even don’t get spoons or glass and now what is worse than this
  • Money extortion – What novice PG owner do that they treat guest like next to nothing as guest is living there only because of his kindness and due to this on very often guest specially girls are mistreated and asked for money apart from monthly rent to buy the food items and in the name of Gas cylinders and if someone does not agree to give extra money then she first have to face bad behaviour of the owner so that guest may leave the house for itself
