Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Accomodation options Auckland. Advice needed!

Am looking to be spending at least 6 months in Auckland, living and working,starting around June this year. Whats the best option for accomodation when doing this??
Flat share? ( how difficult is it to arrange this?) Or staying long term in a hostel (is this possible?) Am looking for the cheapest option really as I'm looking to save a bit of money while over there.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Kx

Flatshare would probably be your best option and it's easy to arrange in Auckland on a short or long term basis. Trademe is the best site for this but also check out backpackerboard.com. Many backpackers do stay long-term in hostels but you'd be in a dorm and I'm not sure it would work out much cheaper, if any, than a flatshare. When I got to Auckland I moved straight into a flatshare as I wanted my own room rather than staying in a dorm.
