Guest Hosting Policy

Mydaki has an open guest policy, but if you’re living in an estate, a shared house or block of flats/hostels, you need to be responsible and considerate about your co-tenants when you host your guests. So, here are a few initiatives you can take to make this peaceful.

Have a word with your co-tenant about your little gig and get their consent. Have it recorded, (it could be a simple message on SMS, Whatsapp, or anything, essentially something you can use as proof) so that there is no blame game, should there be any consequences in the future.

We believe in having fun responsibly. Please avoid the risks of mishaps so that you don’t get into a position you don’t want to be in. Also, in case of financial losses incurred, you will sadly have to bear it.
