    This Diwali Give Your Hostel Room The ‘Ghar Wali Feeling’ With These Easy-To-Do Decor Ideas

    A single string of fairy light can do wonders to perk up your dull hostel room. Read more about such ideas to cheer up your Diwali

    The life in a hostel is completely different than that of home. The living conditions are far less comfortable than that at home. It is far from fancy and dreamy where you can unwind and relax after a hectic day. The hostel room has its own limitations.

    Hostel boarders are literally made to adjust in a boring room which has the most basic furniture to study and sleep, usually a single bed and study table. Adjustment starts from making your tiny and shared living space into a cozy one.

    We did simple research and have come up with some basic things you can do to make your room brighten up this Diwali. Check’em out.

    1. Fairy lights
