First Accommodation in Giessen
Where to live the first few days?
If you get to Giessen and you haven't found a place to live yet you can stay for a few days in the youth hostel in the East of Giessen or renting a hotel room. Unfortunately, there aren't no hostels in Giessen. Or what you can also try is to find a place on Couchsurfing or Airbnb.
To find a private room in a shared apartment it's better to search on the spot as you can visit them directly and get to know the other housemates. In Germany the housemates decide all together who gets the room and later tell the owner of the apartment. The owner barely looks for a new housemate or decides as he wants less problems occuring in the apartment between the several housemates later on.
