It is not that hard to find a place to live in Auckland. The only thing is, it’s quiet expensive to live in Auckland, especially in the CBD (central business district). There are a lot of apartments, who let you live with two people in one room to share the costs. So if you got a friend/boyfriend/girlfriend  who you don’t mind to share your room with, it will save you a lot of money. It is free to react on a accommodation, so you don’t need a membership the only thing you need is an account.

Don’t you know what to do today, have a look on these websites about what’s going on in Auckland/New Zealand. Events
