Student hostels

Student hostels are an affordable option for students living away from home for the first time and a great way to meet other students. They are popular with undergraduate students. In a student hostel you can expect

  • your own fully furnished single, lockable bedroom
  • shared kitchens, recreation areas, bathrooms and laundry
  • electricity, gas and water consumption are normally included in the rent; internet access may be included
  • some student hostels offer short term stays, subject to availability
  • close to public transport
  • bonds equivalent to two weeks' rent usually apply; advance rent is normally limited to one week
    Here is more information about Rooming House regulations.
