Cost of Co-living in Bangalore

The cost of coliving in Bangalore does not just include the monthly rent, but a ton of other expenses too. Yep, co-living spaces in Bangalore do take care of most of the everyday things (like grocery expenses for cooking and maybe even laundry). Though, what about the expensive first-day-first-show tickets and the even more expensive popcorn? Or the daily auto fare to reach your workplace or coaching institute?

Rental Costs

Most people might say that home is where your heart is. But when you’re moving into a new city, it’s not very easy to trust a place with your heart, no? And that’s exactly why opting for a verified co-living space (like Stanza Living) is smarter than moving into an unknown neighborhood with an unknown landlord. Sure, it might be a tad more expensive than renting a house on your own. Though, given you get so many amenities under one roof, it’s definitely even-steven. Also, you get free friends as your roomies when you co-live. And let’s be honest, that’s what we introvert lot can ever wish for lol.

Accommodation costs of co-living in Bangalore:


Price Range

Single room

Rs. 8,000/- to Rs. 15,400/-

Double sharing

Rs. 6,000/- to Rs. 12,500/-

Triple sharing

Rs. 5,700/- to Rs. 12,000/-

Managed apartments

Rs. 15,299/- to Rs. 24,099/-


Point A is where you live. Point B is where you work or study. In a city spaced across 709 square kilometers, knowing the cost of getting from Point A to Point B is vital. A one-way ticket in local transport is around Rs. 50 while a monthly pass costs around Rs. 1500. So while Bengaluru might not be the cheapest city to get around, it’s certainly not the most expensive. P.S – we’ve not included the hidden cost of buying disprin to take care of your Bangalore traffic-related headaches.

Electricity and Wifi

Depending on the co-living space, you might or might not have to chip in for the electricity bill. But in case you have to, then note that the cost per unit of electricity in Bangalore is Rs. 8.20. Though, we suggest you clarify this with your landlord before you move in. And as for the wifi expenses, an unlimited plan will cost you around 400 INR per month to 1200 INR per month. Yep, there’s no way to avoid that. Unless you’re one of those rare humans who still survive on mobile hotspots.

Leisure & Entertainment

After a long day, you need to unwind. On average, a night on the town with a meal, a drink, and a movie for two will put you back about Rs. 2,000 per person without taxes. An early morning cappuccino comes for around Rs. 130. And the best time to get it would be after your workout at the local gym, the membership of which, would be around Rs. 1,600 per month. Also, Bangalore is home to the top fitness chains in the country. So even if you have to make an untimely exit from Bangalore, you can carry forward your membership perks in other cities’ branches. Good deal, innit?
