  • Should I stay in a Chennai hostel?

    Hostels in Chennai tend to have a more active social scene than hotels, so they’re perfect for outgoing travellers looking to meet other people. Chennai hostels are, on average, cheaper than other stays in the city due to their dorm-style sleeping quarters. However, this means you can spend your money elsewhere such as on local tours and events.
