    How much cost a room there? It depends where you wanna live and how long you're staying for. The shorter the time you're staying for the more expensive.

    I'd budget on $150 per week for somewhere to stay if you're going to be there awhile, obviously more if it's just for a single month (you can try airbnb or gumtree possibly for short term stuff).

    How much money i need for a whole moth? That really depends on how you want to live, you can just go to free events (there are lots) and drink water and eat rice and beans and probably live off like $100 per month - but your life is going to suck.

    Melbourne has a great restaurant scene and is especially good for breakfasts.

    I'd budget at least $25 per day (not including accomodation) as a bare minimum, a main meal at a restaurant in Melbourne will cost anywhere from $10 (pub food/indian/thai) to $30.

    Sydney and Melbourne are more or less the same cost of living actually. It's just easier to live in a shitter part of Melbourne as the public transport is better.

    Melbourne is a nice place to live, just be careful of the weather as it's approaching winter. Rent can be cheap if you find the right people, we are paying about $100 per week for a room not too far from the city. Consider public transport and possibly a bike though!

    If anyone's looking for a room, one of our housemates is going overseas so his room will be available from April in Ascot Vale, contact for details!
