The PG has three stories with a TV in the common area on each floor. There are a lot of food joints near by both vegetarian and non vegetarian where you could find good food at a reasonable price.
The pg is situated in a very good location as it is right above Syndicate Bank and 8th Cross Malleswaram Market is at a stone’s throw away.
Rent: 5000 with food (South Indian food-3 meals/day).
Other things: They don’t provide plates. So I had to get my own plate, glass and spoon. They provide laundry service which is included in the rent. It is quite close to Mantri Mall as well.(Hardly a kilometer) Bus stops are at a walking distance. The railway station is about 4 kms from the PG.
How was the owner: I hardly had any conversation with the owner. The pg was mainly managed by her caretaker who seemed to be a sweet lady.
The owner got us a huge cake and other snacks for the new year celebrations which seemed to be a nice gesture. The overall experience was good. However the food could become a little monotonous for a North Indian like me.
But then there’s always an option of having food elsewhere to kill the monotony. The location could not have got better and that brushes aside all the negative aspects if at all.
