Youth hostel opened

The international youth hostel, a joint project by the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) and the Youth Hostels’ Association of India (YHAI), was inaugurated at the Metro quarters on Sunkadakatte Pipeline Road on Sunday.

The YHAI and the BMRCL had signed a memorandum of understanding on the project in January this year. BMRCL Managing Director N Sivasailam said, “Now, Bangalore will have a hostel of international standards. The Metro quarters will become a cosmopolitan centre and benefit students.”

YHAI national president Harish K Saxena said the hostel will be certified under the Hostelling International Quality norms, a benchmark for hostels with assured standards.
