Find a house in Malaga is not a simple thing.

Home sweet home. The house where we come back in the afternoon, after studying the whole day or after you have finished your work. Hence, in order to find a house in Malaga, there are some factors to keep in mind. OnSpain School, language school in Malaga, provides you some useful tips so you will not waste valuable time by finding a house in Spain.
- Spanish family, private apartment or shared flat?
First, you have to decide what type of accommodation you find most comfortable and suits your needs.
If you study Spanish and you want to experience and dive deeper into the Spanish language and culture in Malaga, consider to stay with a Spanish family; when you prefer this type of accommodation you can be sure of a 100% “malagueño” lifestyle and you will develop your Spanish at lightening speed.
If you prefer an apartment, there are two options: a private apartment or a shared flat. A private apartment is perfect for those who would like to enjoy their holiday and prefer some privacy, for example families travelling together or seniors. But for students or adults attending university we recommend you a shared flat. In this way, you meet people who share the wonderful experience with you abroad.
- Define your goals
Keep in mind the comfort factor! Although Malaga is somewhat smaller than cities such as Madrid or Barcelona, Malaga is still a big city and you can find houses in several areas: from the city centre, for those who love to party, to the beautiful and typically neighbourhood El Palo or Pedregalejo, the old fishing-villages with view of sea and where you can find most of the Spanish language schools, like OnSpain for example! 😉
Recommendation: if you want to find a house in Malaga, you have to keep in mind you will travel every day to your university or to your company.
- Old or new media?
You can find advertisements on the internet and on platforms. Here you can place your requests for rental rooms and apartments, real estate agencies, private advertisements, do not miss any opportunity! At language schools, universities and in bars, you can find classical notes with phone numbers for those who seek roommates.
We recommend you to walk around Plaza de la Merced, the old centre of Malaga, where you can find a lot of young people hanging around the bars.
