We all know that when travelling abroad, accommodation can be hard to find if you have never been to that particular country before and you are unsure which real estate or housing rental company you should trust. A lot of international students book themselves into a hotel or hostel before finding something more permanent in the area.
Staying in a hotel for this time can be very expensive, especially on a student budget, and staying in a hostel room can become impersonal and cramped. However, a great alternative lodging choice that is more suitable for these sort of situations, is to stay in private accommodation.
