How much does it cost to rent a room nowadays? Power Aug 22nd, 09, 04:28 PM #1
Well, my house is getting smaller, no choice but to move out soon.

Anyone knows what is the market rate currently for a common room in a HDB flat? Or any hostels also can. Preferably those central areas one. No need orchard, but places like rochor, bugis, kk, pek kio, novena also can.

Any lobangs or contacts please intro, thanks people.

Thanks Dr disciple for your offer. But I hope to look for a cheaper one, no need aircon, hardly use PUB as I am currently in NS. Most of the time I will only be in the house on saturdays and sundays.

But I will still need need a room to keep my stuffs. So still need to rent a room.

Preferrably an area near central, no need orchard those places, areas like rocher, dorset, pek kio, KK, TPY, Novena all are good for me.

Power, so your budget is between 400-500? Just a room to keep stuff and stay over the weekend is it? PM me your contact if you are serious about moving out soon.
