Hello! I'm looking for a room in Sydney. It is easy to find this kind of accomodation? Should I search in a agency? Thanks in advance!

Hi Laurix

Your question is fairly common, therefore I am going to refer you to answers that expats have provided here

For more information, have a look at the Accommodation in Sydney page for a general overview.

Also see our Areas and Suburbs in Sydney page for an idea of amenities and other advantages each area offers. 

When are you moving to Sydney?

Kind regards
