I have just arranged for an internship at a company in Beijing, and I am now looking for housing options. I am a bit of a rookie at this, as this will be my first extended stay outside of the US working. I need to find housing for the months of June, July and August near the city centre (where the company's offices are), and though I've discussed it with their HR officer, I'm wondering if there are other options.
I've heard of homestay programs...does anybody have any opinions on this?
Also, are there any websites that might help me in my search for a small apartment or dormitory-style housing?
Location is probably the most important factor-- I am comfortable living in a spartan environment.
