But with an allowance from one's parents or a beginner's salary (depending on whether you are a student or a working professional), a 'PG accommodation' is almost always the only option for young women and men to strike roots.

It is cheaper than renting out an entire flat and gives you the freedom that no hostel can ever offer.

What are the unwritten rules that must be followed?

Are you a paying guest?
