Help with where to live in Bangalore

Hello InterNations community!

I'm new to this site and hope to meet some of you in the future. My friend and I are arriving from Canada for a three month internship. I am browsing housing options, but getting very confused about ideal locations to live. Our office is located in JP Nagar. We would ideally like to live near JP Nagar, or between that area and the 'centre of the city'. My question is: what is the 'centre' of Bangalore called?

Our concerns are that the neighbourhood is accessible and convenient as well as safe.

Please let me know if you have any recommendations with regards to ideal areas of Bangalore.

Also, if anyone can tell me more about the 'Paying Guest' system, and their past experience, that would also be very helpful! Is it a good way to meet other people? How are the living spaces like?
