Haunted Hostel

 

I don't know whether what I've experienced was real or just my imagination, but similar experiences has been felt by my room mates too.

I study in Cuttack, Odisha. I've not got any college hostel due to no vacancy, I booked a private hostel. The hostel is a part of Cuttack's first ever hotel, it is 150 years old. After renovation, the ground floor is converted into hostel and first floor remained hotel.

When I first went to that hotel, the ground floor was yet to be renovated. So the hotel authorities booked a hotel room as my temporary staying arrangement. As this hotel is too old, generally very less visited by customers. In the first floor, there's a room. It is never locked but I haven't seen any hotel authorities to go inside the room. The sweeper regularly visits the hotel for cleaning each and every room at 8 am but I've never seen even the sweeper to go inside.

Once, I was just wondering what the room consists of. So I undo the bolt and went inside. Inside I saw many documents and a big portrait of a person. I don't know whose portrait was that but it looked very old. To my great surprise, the room was very clean like it is regularly visited by some sweeper for cleaning. I also asked the owner's younger brother about the room so he simply asked me to stay away from the room.

That night, when I was sleeping in my room, I heard someone was breathing heavily. As the sound suggested, I could clearly make it out that someone is sleeping just beside me. I was really scared and screamed and turned back but found no one.

After that incident, I asked the owner to shift my room and he asked me to shift in the ground floor as the rooms on the ground floor were ready to use.

Next, for many days, I've not experienced any paranormal activity. But one day, I was to go outside for dinner. I switched off my room light and fan and went out with my friends. I'm sure, as we are the only residents in that hostel, no other student resides in the ground floor except us. When we came back, we saw the light was glowing and fan was on.

I've not told that strange thing to my friends either. That night, we all the room-mates were discussing about the experience of the college life and hostel. To my great surprise, everyone has experienced some kind of haunting. One has even claimed to see someone in the hostel courtyard at night. When he approached that person, the person vanished.

After such experiences, few questions are arising that (a) why the hostel authorities warned me to stay away from that room? (b) why that room is so clean when no one enters the room? It must have at least dust and few spider-webs, (c) who switched on the light and fan when we were out? The key is only with us, not even with any hostel authority.

dear sds,

I'm really trying my level best to find out about the paranormal activities going in the hostel. But all my efforts are in vain.

I asked the hotel owner's younger brother too but he simply refuses by saying that all I experienced is nothing but my imagination.

I will soon find it out and share with you all.

dear bhaiya!
In this forum its given that you are a teenager and in the story you have mentioned that you study in college... And I study in school (standard 11)...that is why I interpreted that you may be older than me... Please correct me if I am wrong 😊 😊 😊

Hi black_brain, it is a good narration. Thanks for sharing. I feel that the hostel is haunted by spirit or spirits. But, you can do some naive investigation, you have to be tenacious and you can also ask the owner's younger brother again. Well they may not initially tell you the truth. But in paranormal encounters, to find out the truth, you have to be patient and persistent. If you dig up into the history of the hotel/hostel, you may find out something. You can also ask the hotel employees. But be bold because your fear strengthens or emboldens the negative entities. At the same time, be careful. I am not here to scar you off but to warn you because at your age, it is easy to be courageous and bold but we have to be careful also. Try to investigate and if there is any further information, please share with us.

Regards and respects to you.

dear zander.

I feel the same as you do. I think the person in the portrait is a deceased proprietor of the hotel and visits the hotel regularly to take regular rounds for inspecting purposes or may b just to visit his property.

Thank you very much for giving me a clue. I'll soon try to find it out.

Ah, you also mentioned renovations in progress. This can awaken dormant spiritual energies which may linger at a place.

It sounds as though the hostel proprietors may know of the phenomena you have experienced and want to keep it under wraps. I'd be curious to know who is featured in the portrait. Perhaps this is a deceased relative of the proprietors or a former proprietor who is still making their rounds in the place? Could it be that the room is kept up in secret or perhaps that since no one enters it stays relatively clean? I wonder if a neighbor to the hostel might be more willing to talk to you about its history.

Dear Sceptic-Ari,

These incidents are about 15-20 days old.

With me, there's one more friend of mine in that room and to the very next room, 4 friends resides.

No, just yesterday, I heard someone's voice in room no 6 but just 5 minute prior to that, there was no one in the room. And that time, the clock was stricking 4:50 am. At 4:50 am, the hotel was locked from inside so no customer can be expected that time.

Dear black_brain,
Congratulations on getting your first story published on this site. 😁

May I ask a few questions?
I was wondering how old are these incidents?
Do you stay alone in your room?
If not, how many more students stay with you in one room?
And finally, are these the only 2 incidents that happened with you, or are there more, even insignificant ones?

Nicely written...😊

Thanks
Regards
