You may have noticed: the room in a private home is a new fashion phenomenon. It’s a new alternative to the means of housing when you only need it for a few months or even a few years. Television has even managed to make a business out of it by creating competition shows for the best host or for the best accommodation.
What exactly is a room in a private home? In general, when the children leave the family cocoon, the room becomes an unoccupied space. Many decide to rent it out to private individuals, students or others, to make the most of this space, have company, meet new people and share experiences, earn money, etc. They rent out this room under certain conditions. Everything is done so that you can benefit from a good accommodation plan and icing on the cake: having a good time with your host!
Here are the 10 reasons to rent a room in a private home:
1- The price. It’s one of the most important advantages, so put it first! For 600€ per month, you can live in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, proof of this on our website. So you can live INSIDE Paris and use your money for other activities.
