Girls hostel - Tribe student accommodation

Festivities at Tribe that ensure you never feel left out!

If you ask any student what it is that they miss the most about home, chances are that the spot that occupies the immediate after ghar ka khana is their childhood friends and the joy of splashing colours on each other during Holi or biting into a slice of the local rich plum cake on Christmas. The first festivals away from home can be tough, and although colleges provide breaks for major festivals, students often don’t get the chance to travel back home for one-day events such as Holi or Janmashthami. There are also a plethora of intrinsically local events that colleges may not give holidays for. So does that mean our residents won’t celebrate? Absolutely not!

 

Our happiness managers at Tribe take the well-being of our Mumbai and Pune hostels’ students VERY seriously. So after a hoard of very serious meetings, here are some things they came up with that are practiced at every Tribe campus with tremendous seriousness-

No time to siesta, for it’s the hour of fiesta!

Sleeping the day away under dejected blankets during festivals is strictly prohibited at Tribe. Whether it is egg hunts on campus during Easter or Dahi Handi pyramids during Janmashtami, Tribe does it all. Get ready to get soaked in all-natural colours on Holi and roast mean barbeques on Christmas! We also make it a point to celebrate events such as Earth Day by switching off all our lights for an hour across all Tribe campuses to make way for candlelight dinners under the stars every 22nd of April. We also organize special spreads for all our female residents and staff on Women’s Day. Some other celebrations this year included special room delivery of baked goodies in our hostels in Mumbai and Pune on Valentine’s Day, nukkad nataks (street plays) on campus by Swatantra on World Theatre Day, and so many more that this website’s word limit just wouldn’t allow us to write them all!

It’s never a bad time for some relaxation- special screenings and movie nights!

Whether it’s a mani-pedi sesh at our all-girls hostel in Vile Parle or a movie night with peri peri popcorn and pepperoni pizzas from Cafe Mamaliga at Tribe Wakad, we make it a point to celebrate at least once a month for NO reason at all! From IPL screenings to F1 airing that makes you feel like you’re watching the Monaco GP from a balcony overlooking the track, we do it all. And needless to mention, Tribe is a no-noise zone whenever Manchester United is on the field. Sometimes, we even organize inter-campus events- events where residents of all Tribe campuses come over to shake a leg and eat good food- we recently even had Fiddlecraft perform live at our Viman Nagar hostel and entry was free for all our residents.

Freshers and Farewells like no other- DJs, food, afterparty and much more

From boho-themed incubations to Kuch Kuch Hota Hai-themed farewells (cause tussi jaa rahe ho, tussi na jao :’) ), Tribe parties like there’s no tomorrow. We like to do things a little differently at Tribe- so instead of a campus briefing on the very first day, we like to organize treasure hunts as a way for our new residents to get acquainted with the campus! Now isn’t that a vibe you want to be a part of? Residents groove to DJs and gobble up sliders, popcorn, mocktails, and shakes later.

Our latest Viman Nagar farewell, “WhiteOut ” was a send-off curated by our student representatives- Ramith, Aarshi, Harsh, Amaayra, and Arjan along with DJ Aditi Ismal. The only con of this event was the late realization that white might not have been the smartest dress code choice because the live pasta and spring rolls counter wasn’t exactly kind to our residents. But our students were quick to change and head over to Penthouze Pune, where the afterparty continued till the wee hours of the unforgettable night!

Where to stay in Mumbai? A neighbourhood guide for students!

20 June 2022

We could end this blog in just three words-

NEAR? YOUR? COLLEGE

That’s it.
You’ll be visiting your college every single day and there’s nothing worse than having to commute on overcrowded Bombay locals or having to leave your hostel at 5 in the morning to make it to your lecture on time. And more often than not, you would want to come back to your hostel to change after college before you head out for the rest of the day.

But, what if your college’s area has no nice hostels? Which part of the city should you choose to live in then?

Bandra West is just the place to be if you’re young at heart and love cafe-hopping, but the only con of this place is that the rent can cost you an arm and a leg, leaving you with no limbs to go out for coffee.

Andheri is fantastic for students but also infamous for its perennially clogged roadways (by both Monsoon showers and four-wheelers)

Powai is just too far away and it can take students up to 2 hours to travel to the centre of the city.

However, there’s this one place in the city that’s just perfect for students- Vile Parle.

(And we’re not just saying this because Tribe’s all-girls hostel is situated there. We actually conducted an entire four-month-long research before we decided which locality to situate our Mumbai hostel in) And all roads, instead of Rome, led to Vile Parle.

And here’s why, neighbourhood-wise, Tribe Vile Parle is the place to be as a student!

Proximity to your college

If you’ve burnt the midnight oil and successfully secured a seat in NMIMS University or Mithibai College or Pearl Academy or School of European Pastry or IICTN (Cosmetology) or Raffles Design International or Rachana Sansad or LS Raheja School of Art or Whistling Woods International or Actor Prepares or even S.P Jain Institute of Management and Research, Tribe VP is at a stone’s throw from your institute! Forget long boring commutes and sweaty co-passengers, Tribe’s got your back! Don’t believe us? Check it out yourself on Google Maps, search for us @ “Tribe Students Hostel Vile Parle (Girls)”

 

Proximity to transportation

Located only 5 km away from the airport and only 20 minutes away from the Sahar Road metro station, Tribe Vile Parle is excellent in terms of connectivity to the rest of the city. Tribe VP is also, only a ten-minute walk from the Navpada railway station. Needless to mention, Tribe VP is one of the most well-connected among all hostels in Mumbai.

 

Proximity to cafes, clubs, and restaurants

There’s no dearth of restaurants in Vile Parle. Whether it is a soothing continental breakfast that you’re looking for or a spicy ramen snack, VP has got it all. Some Tribe-favourites in the area include Garde Manger Cafe, Cafe Cubano, Roots Cafe, Cafe Lounge, Glee Gourment, Apsara Ice Creams, Maruti Pav Bhaji, McDonald’s, Epitome Juhu and the world-famous Anand Vada Pav opposite Mithibai College!

Proximity to hospitals

Safety comes first. Whether it is a sudden fever or a tumble down the stairs, Tribe’s management is quick to offer first aid whenever something goes wrong. But there’s only so much that Paracetamols and band-aids can do. Our first priority when we were looking for a property was to ensure that it was close to a hospital. And we were pleasantly surprised to learn that Tribe VP’s locality hosts not one, not two, but 8 hospitals! The closest and the best is Nanavati Max Super Speciality Hospital, which is located only 5 minutes from our campus. Other hospitals in the area include the KLS Memorial Hospital, the Advanced Multispeciality Hospital, the Nityanand Hospital and even the Madhavbaugh Clinic for minor injuries and ailments.

 

Proximity to malls, salons, and shopping centres

And what did you even do in Bombay if you didn’t shop? Prime mall is a stone’s throw from Tribe VP and you may even hit up Chamee and Palak (whose designs have been donned by celebs to the likes of Kriti Kharbanda, Mouni Roy, Nusrat Bharucha and Hina Khan) or Aari if you’re looking for designer ensembles for a special occasion! Enrich Salon is just a 12-minute walk from our campus and is perfect for all your beauty and hygiene needs.

Tribe Vile Parle’s locality is enviable in the truest sense of the word. It has everything that a  student in a girls hostel in Mumbai might need- from ATMs and banks to grocery stores and electronic shops.

And if this blog wasn’t convincing enough for you- why don’t you drop us a call at +91 8880868000 or book a free campus tour through www.tribestays.com and witness the extravagance that Vile Parle has to offer with your own two eyes?

Are you a student planning a long term stay? We need to talk about loneliness

5 June 2022

Admin

You’ve waved your goodbyes, kissed your dog, packed your bags, hugged your friends, ransacked the internet for hostels in Pune or Bombay or whichever new city you’re moving to, and let go of your mother’s hand at the airport gate. All these months of exhilarated planning for college have culminated to this fateful day; and even though you’ve always dreamt of moving out and living on your own, a strange feeling awakens in the pit of your stomach right as your board your flight- a feeling of crumpling loneliness.

Shifting to a new city is never easy. Whether it’s frantic calls to home, waking up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat and not being able to recognize your hostel room for the first five seconds or the scrutinizing pain in your chest in the shower- loneliness and homesickness are real, and you’re not weak for feeling them, you’re only human.

TribeStays, as a student co-living space that’s built not only to take care of a student’s tangible amenities but also to provide a safe space for their mental health, understands that homesickness can be one of the toughest phases of a student’s journey. Thus, to tackle the prickly roads of growing up, here are a few of the amenities we provide to make our students’ transition into the new city as smooth, caring, and safe as possible.

In-house counsellors

TribeStays provides free counseling to all its residents. Mahima Mehra, our in-house counsellor, is a certified professional who provides one-on-one sessions at Tribe’s campus office. Here, residents are free to engage in conversation with her over a cup of coffee whenever they need. Patient-counsellor confidentiality is strictly maintained and students are free to talk about anything and everything that’s going on in their lives; an amenity that no usual Mumbai or Pune hostel provides its residents with.

Ergonomic rooms to help fight loneliness

Most students prefer to live with roommates to help fight homesickness. Having someone to share your day and watch an episode of ‘Girls Hostel’ with, goes a long way. However, sometimes, you just need your own space. Tribe’s deluxe twin sharing rooms with privacy dividers enable you to enjoy the best of both worlds- the company of a roommate along with the privacy and space of a single room.

Your chores, our responsibility

There’s nothing worse than having to cook, clean, wash clothes and complete a million other chores when you’re having a bad day and missing home. Tribe’s housekeeping, laundry service and homely meals (which are all included in the monthly rental fee and are one of the best in their class among hostels in Mumbai and Pune) lend you a helping hand when you need it the most.

Student Community Programs to help foster friendships

Tribe’s floor-wise student representatives are present 24/7 to help our residents with any queries or troubles they might face. Tribe understands the importance of community and that’s why all our campuses make it a point to organize at least one community party every month where students get to meet and mingle with their fellow residents over soothing music and delicious food. Moreover, we make sure to make our students’ first festivals away from home as memorable as possible by organzing Holi bashes, Easter hunts, Women’s Day dinners, Theatre Day Nukkad nataks, live performances by bands such as Fiddlecraft and much much more whenever we get a chance!

We also have our very own Tribe community app through which our residents can plan programs, receive invitations, and lodge complaints- all from the comfort of their beds!

Tie-ups with hospitals

Although we hope our students never have to use this facility, TribeStays believes in precaution over cure. Our exclusive partnership with Sahyadri Super Speciality Hospitals provides our residents with priority treatment in all its branches on the presentation of their Tribe ID cards. One can never be too cautious in an emergency and we ensure to arrange for ICU-level Sahyadri ambulances if our students ever need one to make the 15-minute journey as medically secure as possible.

And even though we believe the best way to understand the safety and care of a Tribe campus is through our free campus tours, why don’t you drop us a quick call at +91 8880868000 to know more about our mental health programs? Book your Tribe room today and secure your one-way ticket to a hassle-free and comfortable hostel life!
