Summer stay in Basel

Howdy people!

I posted a similar message almost a yr ago when I had to decide between Heidelberg and Basel to spend my working summer in.

Having stayed in Heidelberg last summer...I am thinking of giving Basel a shot this time around...I have been offered, yet again, a summer job (I am student...) at the Research institute at Basel University Hospital.

This time I have been offered 1K per month excluding housing.

Upon doing some quick googling, I see that a furnished flat at the staff's residence will cost me 550 Fr per month...leaving me with around 400 Sfr to spend on food etc.

I will very likely write back...asking for a slight raise...what would you guys suggest that I ask for?

1500 Sfr/month?

Thanks in advance :D to everyone who replies :)


PS: since I dont drink or smoke, that shall be excluded from any consideration
