Renting a room in a Private Sharehouse – Best for confident travellers who can negotiate well with flatmates

In a Sharehouse you rent out a room, and share the kitchen, bathroom and lounge facilities.  Usually there is an average of 5-7 people in the house.  Some sharehouses will ask that you pay extra for the bills, and guests are supposed to clean the bathroom and kitchen areas themselves, and share the duties.  There are a lot of illegal sharehouses in Australia, so this means that there are different levels of health, safety and hygiene.  It is important to ensure you have a written contract and evidence of paying rent and bond in case the landlord contests this later.  Always visit a property first and only stay in sharehouses that have been recommended to you by friends or family.

Pros:  A cheap private alternative.

Cons:  Standards vary, flatmates not necessarily chosen to match the other types of guests, not always clean if there is no cleaning service and if there is no onsite management then any problems with flatmates is sorted out themselves. Cannot always book in advance.

How do I find? : Sharehouses can be found on noticeboards or on Gumtree.com or you can list yourself on Flatmates.com or Easyroommate.com

租了一个房间在一个私人–sharehouse最自信的旅行者可以很好地与室友协商

优点:廉价的私人空间。

缺点:标准不尽相同,不一定要选择符合客人的其他类型的室友总是不干净如果没有清洗服务,如果没有现场管理与室友的任何问题是整理自己。不一定能提前预订得到。

Renting a room in a Managed Sharehouse  - Best for smart students and travellers looking for a private home but need some help

Renting a room in a managed Sharehouse is different as they are a company so they have to follow the Australian laws and make sure the houses are clean, safe and secure.  They usually include all their services in one price (weekly cleaning service, electricity, water, internet), legal contracts and have lots of reviews from previous guests so that you trust them.  You can stay for short or long term stays and they have experience with accommodating international guests and offer advice and support.  They will have maintenance people to help you if something is not working, and keep pools, BBQs and garden areas well maintained.  Usually can book in advance.

Pros:  Clean, safe and well run.  Usually in good locations and can see reviews online to choose a good company.

Cons:  Usually can’t stay for a few nights, needs to be at least a week.  Sometimes a little more expensive than a private Sharehouse due to the services and standards they offer.
