Housing Anywhere

Trustpilot score: ★★★★☆

Another way to book your home away from home in an easy way, is with Housing Anywhere. The platform offers a wide variety of choices in different price ranges and locations. In general, clients who are students, are very satisfied. They even describe the platform as an absolute lifesaver for people going abroad. However, please keep in mind that – even though customer service is highly responsive through mail and phone – there are cases of landlords being neglectful about which Housing Anywhere can do very little. So carefully review everything first and don’t make any hasty decisions. Be aware of the fact that the process of booking is done through a realtor-estate agency which involves high agency fees.
