A Word About City Rooms

Just like village rooms, apartments in the city are also affordable. These, too, can be found on Craigslist and through local residents. If you have a lot of things you want to do in a particular city, it's indirectly cheaper to stay in a central city location rather than a village simply because you wouldn't need to pay for transportation back and forth to the apartment. If all your attractions are nearby, you'd just walk or bike. It's true the city apartment itself would be more expensive than a village one, but overall you'd be saving money (and time). 

All of the previously mentioned rules apply with city dwellings just as they do with village apartments. Don't get scammed and avoid fishy situations. If you doubt the integrity of someone offering you a room, you're probably rightfully worried. Pass on it in that case. Don't ever risk anything to save a few euros; saving money shouldn't be about risking your life.
