I heard that rent is expensive in Melbourne. Are there any cheap places to stay?

Uhm, you're going to have to be more specific to get a good answer.

Sure there are cheap places to stay, but they might not be in locations you like or you might have to share the house with people you don't like. It's cheaper than Sydney, but more expensive than other cities. Housing is not very affordable in Australian cities unfortunately. But a share house should still work out cheaper than staying in a hostel.

Also, what do you consider expensive anyway? Where do you want to be? How long are you staying for? When will you be looking? Are you hoping for us to point you to specific houses / flats, or do you just want an idea of what the rental market is like in Melbourne? Let us know so we can help out.
