One of the event which brings almost everyone in the hostel outdoors to take part in the plethora of events that are conducted as part of the hostel annual fest, HEXFEST.

The festival has a range of events which includes Tea party, Barbecue night, Gala Dinner, Wall painting, On-the-Spot events and competitions, Poker night among other events. Conducted in the month of March, the 2014 edition has been a roaring success and the inmates are eagerly waiting for the 2015 edition.
Hostel-6 gives you a life which always makes you wanting to come back to it. Thats probably one of the reason why the alumni of hostel-6 go back their memory lane and associate themselves again with hostel in various ways. A lot of developmental activities have been taken up with their funds and support. The laundromat facility, a printer and many other support services have been donated by these alumni who always have been at the forefront when it comes to matters regarding the hostel. We would love to have alumni as part of our hostel events and we invite them whenever they find time and we would ask them to look at this space for further updates.
