Melbourne, the Capital of Victoria, is considered as one of the most liveable cities in the world. In 2011 Melbourne was ranked 1st and never left the top 3 until then. For this reason this city is highly desired by students particulary wanting to enjoy the special atmosphere that is in the city.
Preparing for the great departure and looking for an accomodation? Let’s review the possibilities to find the suitable place for you.
First I would recommend you to book a temporary place when you arrive in Melbourne, it will give you the opportunity to look for and find the suitable accomodation for you. Airbnb is the best option for short term stay and still cheaper than renting a hostel.
Most of students try to find an accommodation in a shared flat/house because it is cheaper than renting an entire place.
To find the suitable accommodation for you in Melbourne you can use the following websites:
– Gumtree => Very famous in Australia, you can find everything you need in this website, not only for the accomodation.
You will have plenty of offers in Gumtree which makes it really useful for you to find what you want, you can even chose the suburb that suits you best.
– Flatmates / EasyRoommate => These websites focus only on shared accommodation, you can add or remove some details to make the search more accurate and suitable for you (Private/Shared room, price, suburb, furnished/unfurnished, etc..).
Accommodation for students in Melbourne is around 180 – 340$ AUD.
The last advice for you.. Enjoy your stay in this great city.
