My girlfriend is on a work placement in Mumbai until December but is finding it hard to find a decent place to live (i.e. without Rats, cheap, with a Shower...she's not found better than this so far).
She is earning 10,000 rupees a month (I think) and works in the South (I think). Anyway, can anyone recommend some nice areas that would be good to look in? She doesn't mind sharing a room with another girl.
I should stress, this is a place to live as she is working there, not backpacking around.
Thanks for your help!

hey jon,

where excattly is she working in south. well she can find good and cheap accomodation in santacruz (east), kalina, vakola, goregoan, borivali. ask her to go out to a real estate guy and he will find a good deal for her. ask him to find her a paying guest kind of a place for her. i dont think that would be hard. but rs10000 a month for someone from outside india is very less. anyways if you need real estate guys contact number reply back i will get few of them from every area. anyways nice meeting you jon. looking forword to talk more.

Just a quick suggestion, why not ask your friend to try for working Womens hostel by this she would not be left alone and she gets to know about the people and the best of Mumbai.

As hostels sometimes do cost less.

Hope this helps

Good Luck
