I'm a medical student in London, UK planning an elective placement for a month at the Royal Perth Hospital, which I'm really excited about! Unfortunately I was told recently that the hospital based accommodation I was expecting to stay in is no longer available. I'm due to fly out there on 19th August and have no where to stay for 4 weeks!
I have looked into hotels and bed and breakfasts but they are ridiculously expensive for 4 weeks. I'm not keen on homestay (where you live with an Australian family) as I would like my own privacy. I am considering backpackers lodges...but 4 weeks in a backpackers, and having to dress up formally to go to work in the hospital, the working life and backpackers life..the two don't fit.
But honestly open to most things now, desperate for advice. If anyone out there has any words of wisdom I would be sooo grateful!Edited: 2:10 pm, July 01, 2013
