How to find a room or apartment on HousingAnywhere

HousingAnywhere is a platform that brings together advertisers and searchers of accommodation. We do not mediate between the parties, but the process is straightforward.

Please follow these steps to find a room or apartment:

  1. Type the name of your desired city on our homepage.

  2. Once you are on the search page, you can use our filters to find your favorite accommodation type.

  3. Click on the "Contact (name of the advertiser)" button. Enter your message and submit it. We recommend you send messages to several advertisers. If you only see "View listing on partner website" instead of "Contact advertiser", the listing is not offered on HousingAnywhere but a partner site. By clicking "View room on partner site", you will exit HousingAnywhere and be directed to the partner site, where you can contact the advertiser and get help from their customer care.

  4. You can contact the advertiser and talk about the rental period or any other questions about the listing. For your safety, we block any personal information shared in the chat before a booking is made, such as phone numbers and personal emails. These personal details can be exchanged once you've booked.

If you agree to book the room or apartment of an advertiser, make sure to use our secure payment service. It guarantees that your room is booked and that your transaction is safely taken care of.
