Hi Heyko!
I've just moved here with a work and travel visa. I arrived to Vancouver one week ago and I've found a room for 510$. The regular price is 500-550 dollars x room but it depends on the area. You can find something cheaper but maybe is not gonna be close to the city center.
I've been also looking for a job, kind like the one that you are looking for. Now is the low season, til march or February, so its more difficult to find a job, but you know, it depends on your effort, you can find something! If you work as a waitress your gonna win your base salary plus tips and if you work in a store or MacDonald's you're not gonna have tips. What I've heard is that kind of jobs use to be 10/11 dollars per hour, and I don't know if this is with taxes or not.

that's what I've learned from the city, I hope it can helps you!
And Vancouver, wow, its a nice city, very international and very helpful people
