Moving to a new country is not as easy as a pie but necessary if you want to enjoy your stay in Sydney.
Sydney is a huge city having plenty of different types of accommodation fitting all tastes and budgets.
In Sydney, it is possible to stay in luxurious hotels, budget hotels, self contained apartments as well as in “backpackers”, hosting numerous young people from all over the world.
As in “backpackers”, you will find a wide range of accommodation allowing you to enjoy the blend of culture by meeting new people.
To know where you want to live in Sydney:
– You must know if you prefer to live in the city or in Sydney Regions.
Inner Sydney is close to all attractions and entertainment of the city. In that case, you can live in areas like Darlinghurst, Surry Hill, Kings Cross, Pyrmont on Darling Harbour or in the core of the CBD.
– You have to set up your budget before coming in Sydney given that the cost of living is higher in the center.
The cost of living is high above all in the center but you can usually find cheaper accommodation by living in shared flat. You can find flatmates on many websites such as Gumtree or Easyroommate.
A bond must be paid when you move in and generally represents 4 rent weeks, that the real estate or landlord will hold until your departure. Most of the time, the rent is paid weekly.
At the beginning when you are searching for a long term accommodation (at least 2 months), the best choice is to book an hotel or a backpacker depending on your budget and tastes.
Then you can look for a flat and make as many visits as you want to find what is suitable for your well-being.
On the other hand, if you stay in this city just for few weeks, the best choice remains hotels and backpackers for lower budgets. The system of lodging accommodation can also be really interesting in this case. That way, you just have to book a room on the web before you leave this incredible city.
