Hi, i’m trying to find an apartment in madrid. it needs to be big enough for two people. i’m renting it with my friend. i don’t mind contracts, but if i am going to use a contract i want it to be a nice apartment! thank you so much to anyone who helps!! you’re a life saver!

Administrator answers:

Hi I am in Madrid now. I found my apartment online and signed a contract with them. However a lot of my friends got here, stayed in a hostel for a week or so and searched for an apartment when they got here. Cheaper apartments are not advertised online. If you are studying abroad, am sure your school has a list of landlords that you can contact once you are here. If not i know hostels here helped a lot of my friends. I wish I had done this instead of what I did. It would have been a lot cheaper.

If you really want to book it before you come, a site I ran across while searching last year is

You can book a hostel at or

Good Luck! Have fun with you time in Madrid! Its an awesome city

what are some safe but still cheap apartments in the Joliet, IL area?

I am looking for an apartment around Joliet and all the ones I have looked at have been either super unsafe but a good price or safe and too expensive. I am not necessarily looking for one in Joliet but easy access to Joliet is necessary

Web sites are a good place to find an apartment or house to rent, if you want to go through the entire list to find one in your state and then city.

The best place to look for places to rent is to go to the yellow pages of your telephone book, look under property managers.

These individuals list properties for rent in certain areas, so make sure you select the areas in which you wish to rent.

Call several of the property managers listed there, tell them you want a list of properties that they have for rent. Some will fax, email or mail the list of local places to rent along with the address, number of bedrooms and bath rooms, amenities available, such as washer and dryers or gyms, the monthly rental of the unit. Most will include a rental application. These list will include the monthly rental required, if a lease or month to month agreement will be signed. They will also indicate if they will accept Section 8 vouchers. They will also indicate it they have disabled access, allow pets and if so the type allowed.

They might indicate a web site that you might visit to get their list of places to rent. It does not cost to get a rental list from a reputable property manager.

Some will require you to stop by their office and pick up the list. A lot of them post their list outside so the list are available 24/7 365.

Make sure you don’t fall for the scams and purchase a list as 70%-80% of these list are composed of free list they have compiled. They are not the property managers of any property in most instances.

You might also google Property managers in whatever city or community you want to live in and see what comes up. Again do not pay for this information as it is free from reliable property managers.

I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.

Does anyone know any nice/cheap apartments in downtown Peoria, Illinois?

I’ve been searching for an apartment for quite a while. I’ve been restricted to the internet lately because where I am currently I don’t have any newspapers or anything like that. Everything I search gives me apartments for Peoria, but none are downtown. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!!!

(If you don’t live near Peoria, but you have a good link for downtown, please send it to me! Thank you very much!)

Mandy asks…

Cheap apartments/hotels in Tokyo for a month?

I’ll be going to Tokyo for a month at the end of year. I need a place to stay that’s around $A1000. Any suggestions/websites with cheap accommodation? Greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Administrator answers:

In a city as expensive as Tokyo “cheap” is definitely a relative term. Japanese hotels in general, and Tokyo hotels specifically, can be quite expensive. In Tokyo a luxury hotel can easily cost $1,000 (us) per night, and even mid-range hotels cost anywhere from $250-$350 per night. Needless to say, budget travel in Tokyo can be quite a challenge.

Japanese travelers with limited resources should not despair. There are a few cheap hotels in Tokyo – and by cheap we mean affordable not flea bag. As long as you don’t mind shared bathroom facilities there are several budget hotel options in Tokyo.

New Koyo has developed a reputation for having unbelievably affordable room rates. A while back the New York Times (in a review of the Planet Tokyo website) cited our listing of the New Koyo hotel’s $21 single rooms as “an internet miracle”. Double rooms are slightly more expensive at around $44 (still quite cheap for a Tokyo hotel). New Koyo bills itself as “the cheapest hotelin Tokyo for travelers touring Japan on a limited budget”. Each room includes a TV set and there’s internet access in the lobby. They’ll even rent you a bicycle for ¥500/day.

New Koyo is such a bargain that their rooms book quickly. If you’re planning a trip make sure to make your reservations in advance. You can book a room directly from their website.

While not quite as cheap as the New Koyo, the Sakura Hotel in Tokyo offers yet another low priced alternative for budget travelers. Single rooms start at around $55 and the Sakura offers a variety of room types including double, twin (complete with bunk beds), and dorm style rooms at $35 per person. All of Sakura’s rooms are air conditioned and the hotel features a variety of amenities including a laundromat, 24 hour cafe, and internet cafe. You can make a reservation on the Sakura website.

Not everyone realizes that you don’t have to be young to stay in a youth hostel. The Tokyo International Youth Hostel is open to travelers of all ages. All rooms are shared, as are the bathroom facilities — which are billed on the hostel’s website as “our renowned bath with a view” (one can only imagine what that might mean). Guests over 15 years of age stay for $32/day and under 15 stay for around $18/day. According to the hostel’s website “reservations will be accepted by mail three months in advance, and two months in advance by phone, fax and on the website.” You can e-mail the hostel directly for more information at
