Housing guide

1st Step Keep in mind


First, you need to define a budget. This might be the most annoying part, because you will realise if you can start your life abroad, where you can live, the type of accommodation you can afford. When you deal with finances you have to take into account: price of the room or flat, cost of living (flat expenses, living expenses such as food, drinks, etc.), price of public transports and cost of flights.


Which is the right moment to get your accommodation? There are two strategies: the early bird hunting or the last minute booking. 

  1. If you are a careful planner, we suggest you to start your hunting at least 4 months before. It might be stressful but this is how you'll get the best accommodation. The cons is that you may have to pay the rent even for the short term before your arrival, in order to ensure you the stay there.
  2. If you are a free soul that would rather take life easy, you can relax and start your flat hunting in Madrid one month before. Our cities are dynamic, people easily come and leave, therefore you will find a last-minute accommodation. But be careful, you will have less chances to find what you are looking for.

Area, transportation and closeness to workplace or university

If you are seeking vibrant and lively areas where to stay, then we suggest you to live in the city center. There are so many pros about that: shopping routes, uncountable dining spots, the nightlife and the closeness of all the comforts. The cons is that you might hear many noises. That’s why we suggest you quiet and relaxed neighbourhoods, a few steps out from the center, if you can’t deal with the crowded places!  

But first, the couple things to keep in mind when choosing the area are the transportation, the closeness to your workplace or university and that you have easy access to supermarkets and anything else you need!

2nd Step Types of student housing in Madrid

3rd Step Details

Interior / Exterior

The room’s price may change depending on where it is located: some flats have both exterior and interior rooms. The first ones are brighter and may have a nice view on the street. Anyway, if you want to avoid any kind of noise, then an interior room is the best choice.


Who doesn’t love to live in a cosy and well equipped flat?

While hunting your new accommodation, you will encounter several types: from completely empty spaces to the totally furnished ones.

At helpHousing, our apartments are modern and well equipped and our rooms have the basic furniture you need. 


Customers first. Don’t you agree? When it comes to choose where to live in Madrid, make sure you decide to rent a room or a flat that won’t cause you problems. The issues you can deal with can be about the bathroom pipes, the boiler, the door lock and many others. Being in a foreign country means that you could have language misunderstandings, or you might have problems to know how much is the cost of the service.

We care about our tenants, that's why maintenance is included in our services. Our clients have nothing to worry about.


Another important thing you should evaluate is whether or not having costs included. You have to know that in Madrid, most of the housing solutions don’t include costs. Whatever you are going to choose, do not forget that the bills and expenses management is easier with us: you have your own online account, where we inform you about everything.
