How is housing in Sydney? Going to stay there for some months, and dont wanna live at a hostell for so long. How is the best and easiest way to get an appartment or something? Where to find people to share with? And where to find appartments? Is it somewhere on the internet I can start to look? And is it easy to rent appartments just for some months?

For those of you that are staying in Sydney for some months, how do you plan to do it with housing?

I'm thinking the same as you, could do with finding a flat share or something too.
Hotels are fun but MEGA expensive really, so not a viable option on the budget I'm on, unless I want to blow my whole bank balance on accommodation. What are you tinking of??

Would be nice to stay at a hotel, but like you I cant afford it for months.
Im thinking to find an appartment to rent, sounds like the best and cheapest way.
When are you staying in Sydney?

You can get house/flat shares on Gumtree. You can get a roomshare in the city for about $150-200 per week. If you want your own room in the city expect to pay $300pw, at least. It gets cheaper as you move out into the suburbs.

Have a look on Gumtree to get an idea.

Is it easy to find a flat share? What is the cheapest normal price?
