GuestHouseBank > What is Shared House
A shared house, sometimes called as a guest house, is an apartment (or a house) for rent in which you can share rooms and facilities with other residents. Shared houses convenient for travelers and people who are looking for accommodations for short-term. Mostly without a damage deposit, a key money, a brokerage fee, and a guarantor, you can rent a room monthly.
Following a shared house rule and checking the rule in advance are important for your happy life in the shared house. Try to be nice and polite to other residents.
|We suggest single room occupancy to people who care about their privacy and like to be alone. Furnishings and facilities differ from other apartments; some apartments may include an air conditioner, a television set, a bed, a refrigerator, desks, and chairs. In general, single room occupancy is more expensive than multiple-occupancy room.|
|A multiple-occupancy room usually includes more than one bed in a room. The biggest advantage of this type is its inexpensive rent range. You can save a lot of money by choosing a multiple-occupancy room. Most multiple-occupancy rooms include only a curtain for your privacy, however, no men and women share a room in principle. The safe and lockers might be available in most rooms.|
