Paying Guest (PG) accommodations are pulling out all the stops to attract youngsters coming to the city.
Story so far: Many colleges and tech companies were more flexible with their working conditions due to the pandemic. Several people switched to working from home. Hence, apartment owners and PGs had taken a hit. However, as people return to their places of work now, PGs are working to lure clients.
- Many PG owners are offering “value-added” facilities to lure youngsters, catering particularly to millennials. One has partnered with an EV company to offer e-bikes for transportation. Others are offering spaces for them to relax.
- Some PGs are going further with mini gyms, rooftop barbeques, study rooms, libraries, free Wi-Fi, and home theatres for students who want comfort.
Demanding clientele: Previously, PG owners would offer accommodation based on the tenant’s needs with single, double, or triple sharing options. Now, college students are demanding more facilities.
