"After 5 weeks (19-8) I moved..." Australia Hotel Tip by Tuk

Australia Hotels: 236 reviews and 261 photos

After 5 weeks (19-8) I moved to Malvern, very happy to be out of dorms! The hotel-like atmosphere has been replaced with a real house with 3 housemates from Victoria (1 is away, travelling).
As low as AU$65 per week for small rooms in reasonable locations, even less if you don't mind being far from the center.

Unique Qualities: Renting a room in a nice old house with a big back yard. Finding room was easy: lots of ads in the saturdag-edition of The Age Newspaper, all rooms organized per suburb. First house I went to, I got the room. Maybe it was just my charm, but more probable this is an indication that it is quite easy to find a room in Melbourne. Especially if you're staying a couple of months it is probably a very good idea. It was for me: finally my 'own' bathroom (with tub).

Price Comparison: least expensive
Directions: Malvern, quiet suburb relatively close to center (15 minutes Tooronga Station-Flinders Street by train).
