Default Accommodation in Dubai wanted

Hey guys,

Im coming to Dubai on March 15 to look for a job overthere. Im looking for any kind of decent accommodation (anything is better than an expensive hotel). I've checked all the ads on the internet but didnt find anything decent. Any seriously meant advice would be appreciated.
Btw Im european female aged 24.

Well, as I dont know how much I'll be getting paid if I ever find a job, I was thinking about the rent up to 1200 Dhs/month, definitely prefer a sharing accommodation in the beginning.

hmmmmm...any prefered location?

I believe you wouldn't know about the locations, what jobs will you be looking for, its better to try to get an accomodation in an area close to were you will be looking the most. where are you based now?

Im in Prague now, going to find some PA position in Dubai. Dont prefer any location in the beginnig, but centre is of course the best. It shouldnt be a problem to change the place after I get a job.

But I've seen several ads offering sharing accommodation for even less, but it was either for bachelors or some group that I dont fit in

FD, when we drove around Jumeirah, taking down numbers put up on villas or getting the owner's number off the watchman, we found very good deals for very nice houses. Dhs100k for a house that would be Dhs120k from an agent, and Dhs90k if it was just one cheque!

Dhs1200 is no where near enough I'm afraid.
