Dear friend,

First of all, your sister is staying alone in a hostel and she is not taking to you or your parents. So if you try to start any type of treatment she might not agree. So please find out who is her friend in the hostel and try and speak to your sister through the friend.
Slowly make her realise that she needs help from a counselor or psychotherapist through the friend only.

Since she is not on talking terms with parents or you, she may not listen to you. You may have to request her close friend or someone she trusts to talk to her & take her to a   mental health professional. If they are able to establish a rapport with her, she may engage in treatment..
