Hostel accommodation is a good choice for international students, especially in the first months of their arrival in Sydney & Adelaide. Usually a hostel gives students a small, furnished room with access to a shared bathroom, laundry, lounge and recreational activities. Some hostels also provide computer access. It is recommended that you look at two or three properties prior to making a decision. Many hostels are privately run and therefore come under the Rooming House Act. If you sign a lease, you are protected by the Residential Tenancies Act. Renting an apartment or flat varies greatly in cost and conditions. For a long term stay, it is strongly advised that you become familiar with the suburb or area. For purposes of bond payment and moving arrangements you will need to sign a lease agreement. For this reason you are advised to use short term accommodation while you become more familiar with Sydney.
