    Hi All,

    I'm currently looking into planning/costs for my elective in Hamilton, New Zealand next summer.

    Could anyone who's been to New Zealand or has any info. advise me on where to look for reasonably priced accommodation for the duration of eight weeks? From what I've seen on Airbnb, the cheapest private rooms are going for around £1.5k in total.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hi, look at TradeMe.co.nz as a starter for accomodation. I lived in NZ, Wellington and Christchurch for 10yrs. You could post on trademe that you are looking for temp accomodation and see what response you get. There is also Backpackers accomodation that's very reasonable. Check out housesitters.co.nz and you will definitely get somewhere temporary on this. Some people just do this as a job and don't have a permanent home, as professional housesitters! Good luck, hope this helps!
