Accommodation in Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires offers some good accommodation for global citizens, students and travellers wishing to stay in the city for several months or more. Let's start with some online resources you can use to find your accommodation.
So how much should you expect to pay? Well, here is a list of the studio apartments I looked at when moving here. The prices are listed in USD for monthly rental including expenses such as Internet and electricity. The deposit is usually 2 weeks or one month rent depending on how long you stay. The admin fee is once off when you check in. Note, some of this links may have expired by the time you read this.
If you want to live with a friend, stay in a share house or if you are here for the long term you can probably halve your accommodation costs.

One final note. If you rent directly from the owner check first if they have any ridiculous house rules about what you can and can't do or who you can and can't see, before you move in.
