Definition

Hostel is where students live at a residential school, college or university. It is also used for place of residence for young professionals who live in a city.

Many people who have studied at a residential campus would have lived or had friends in the hostel.

Hostel mates and hostel friends often become friends for life as the level of bonding and interactions is very different from day students.

Usage

Rajiv to his long time friend Rakesh:
"Arey Yaar! remember the great times we used to have in the hostel"
"Yaa ! do you remember the time Ajay was so drunk - we made him a sandwich with modern bread, Amul butter and toothpaste and he happily ate it. Next day he was totally pissed off with us"
"Man, what days!!"
