finding one month of housing in Vienna

Short-term housing in Vienna: Where should I be looking to find cheap yet private (non-roommate) housing for just the month of November? I've tried Craigslist, all the housing sites I can find via Google, all the Youth Houses, and more. I'm fine with German-language sites.

On the housing sites, there are almost no short-term listings. On the short-term housing sites, I only find really nice/expensive places. (I would be fine with a very simple, tiny place, and it could be unfurnished.) Craigslist-Vienna's housing section is not very active. I emailed all the Youth Houses that accept non-students, but none has any private room available for November.

Where else should I be looking?

I would be attending Wien Modern (the contemporary-music festival that lasts for the whole month of November), so I'd need to stay either in the city center or near an U-Bahn station with easy access to the city center. If you want to write to me privately, you can use .

Check out, if you haven't already.

I am in the process of moving out of my central Vienna apartment right now, but I'll probably find someone to pick up my lease before November rolls around.

I'd suggest that you reconsider a shared flat - you might meet some interesting people, and you're only talking about a month. It's really common to share a flat here. I might be able to help you find a place with reasonable roommates (i.e. people for whom I can personally vouch), if you're willing to reconsider the private requirement.

If you insist on private, there are plenty of Pensions where you can pay around €15-20 per night. I stayed in several of them for the first 6 months that I was here. Feel free to email me for info - address is in my profile.
