It is not really intended for people looking for shared rooms, as it is a real estate portal that offers studios, apartments and houses for rent. But if this is what you are looking for (and you can always gather together a group of friends to share a place) ,or even if you simply want to know which neighbourhood is better for you to live in, then this is your site.

Depending on if you are more interested on saving money or time, you can look for your perfect balance.
