Ghosts In My Residential Hostel


This is my scary experience when I was studying my undergraduate course in India.

It was the year 2003, I was studying in andhrapradesh, a state in India. First let me describe the hostel I was staying in. The Hostel is isolated from the city and has to one travel about 40 minutes in the outskirts to reach our college. This experience happened on the first day of my college admission.

It was around 5pm. My parents left so I was not accompanied with my roommates. Due to heavy pain, I started walking to the toilets. Since it is the very first day the campus looked deserted. My heart started pounding due to the fact that no one was around me. Slowly I opened the toilets door. No lights. I was shocked. I heard some one tapping outside the door and within minutes the door was locked, I felt scared and was shaking with fear, out of no where I heard some one calling "kiiii...ran, kiii... Ran "bewildered I banged the door. But since no one was there outside, no one opened the door, still the sound continued even I am puzzled to hear my name being said by ghost. No one believed me. They treated me like I was mad.

To this day I do not go to those toilets I go in the other floor in campus. I'll write my other experience in other post

I have heard about ghosts calling names and it is very common, its just that you don't have to respond to them. And the other thing about the phone call, it may be done by some notorious spirit that resides in your hostel and maybe he choosed you because you might be sensitive towards these things. You should ask others if they have experienced something like this. I think you should probably ask the peons and watchman they mostly know most of the secrets hidden. And you should never go to some desserted place alone if anyone calls you and if you feel anything weird about it because it can take a toll of your life. Becarefull and thank you for your story:)

Hi Kiran,

Read your post which directed me to this story. I guess our hostels are haunted... 😁

Well I could not understand one thing... You were in great pain so you started for the toilets... What pain was it?
I mean was it a headache or something you had? Because if it was then it is possible that your mind was under stress being your first day of your hostel and you being alone in a new place...

These are just point of views I have. But please ellaborate about the pain...

Take care,
Godspeed S.

Well I've been in pain but I never heard my name called out so I don't know if pain had anything to do with this experience. On the other hand you were in a new phase of your life and alone in a strange place and your parents just left and you were not feeling well which could have been very real factors leading up to a very surreal kind of experience. Have you ever heard anyone else talk about weird things happening in that bathroom? Is it possible its haunted? Could be. It's hard to speak to others about this kind of thing without feeling like you are under the "mad" microscope but you are not alone. Many people have experiences they can't explain. Here on this site people will listen and try to help. You are among friends.

This little experience of yours I can relate to because when I was younger, ghosts that I grew up with seemed to call people's names a lot, and as always, the elders would tell us to not respond due to superstitous reasons. Your story is very creepy indeed...;O I'll be working on my stories soon as I have plenty of them to tell.

That was a pretty creepy experience for you!

I agree with Surya, though. Could it have been a Hallucination? Maybe it was, but maybe it was not.

If you have any questions, email me: spirithelper [at]

Take care! ❤

Hi and welcome to YGS.

I read your story with great interest. Please tell me if I am prying, but what sort of pain where you in? Could it be that you were in such pain that you were hearing yourself in your head calling your name. It is not uncommon that when a person is ill or in such pain they start Hallucinating.
