Are you looking for rooms for rent in Manhattan or NYC? Then you’re undoubtedly a bit worried about what that will cost. It’s no secret that New York is not exactly the cheapest city for housing, but is it possible to find something both comfortable and affordable?

It turns out, yes, that’s entirely possible! Here are a few ways to do it.

  1. Visit Manhattan Rent Groups

Many people will post personal ads looking for new roommates on groups like Facebook. The best part about these groups is that you get to talk directly with either the landlord or the person with whom you will share the unit and avoid dealing with real estate agencies that charge extra commission.

However, be sure to see the room before you agree to anything or send a deposit over! 

  1. Try Airbnb

Airbnb is designed for short-term housing, but you can still find some great options if you’re looking for something more long-term. Many people use Airbnb to rent out a room and make some extra money, and it doesn’t hurt to reach out to them and ask if they’d be open to something more long-term.

This option is especially useful since you can see reviews of the person renting and the room itself and get a better idea of the place. 

  1. Tap into the Local Community

Have a friend or colleague who’s a local or has lived in Manhattan for a while? Then use their resources to find the perfect room for rent in Manhattan! Word of mouth is still a powerful way for people to find accommodation.

Posting on your social media accounts and asking friends for a share also works really well. These messages can be spread out quickly, allowing you to find an affordable room more rapidly than you might expect.
