Usually the employer helps to arrange accommodations for their employees. Have you asked? There is the Outermost Hostel. You could try there.

Also there are some campgrounds you could try.

In recent years there have been many people from your country working in Provincetown. I do not know where they stay. Some employers do have rooms available. Do you know anyone else who is coming to work?

You could contact the Chamber of Commerce and tell them about your problem. Perhaps they know of something.

Ptown is one of the most expensive spots on the Cape to find accommodations. In addition to looking there you could also try Wellfleet. There is shuttle transportation from the other Outer Cape towns to Ptown. While you are searching for lodging you might just continue to look for another job, one where the employer has housing options for staff. While I doubt you could spend the summer at the hostel you might want to see if you can book a week or two there for starters. Good luck.

Two other thoughts:

Through Facebook, you may be able to find potential apartment roommates or landlords in Provincetown.

Also, if you're a UAB student, ask someone who works at the University for help, or names of other students already working in Provincetown, or who have worked here in years past.

Good luck!

You could contact the Provincetown Chamber of Commerce www.ptownchamber.org to see if they have any suggestions for employee housing.

If you look for housing outside Provincetown, there is a very convenient summer shuttle between Provincetown and North Truro which will run every 30 mins from 9:00am to midnight. www.capecodrta.org.

In addition there is also the Flex bus that connects Provincetown to Harwichport via Truro, Wellfleet, Eastham and Orleans. Their last bus already leaves Provincetown at 5:30am and may not be complementary to a waiter's schedule.
