Accommodation in Melbourne - Settling down

Hi all,

I am on my way to Melbourne and looking for a place to live. Does anybody from you have a spare room for rent or know of anything?

The flat hunt was a bit difficult from the distance. Any recommendations of cheap long stay hostels with parking from where I could base myself at first?

I used this place for a month when I first moved here. Shower/cooking/microwave in the 2 bedrm cabin, coin operated laundry/internet in one of the other buildings. parking beside each cabin etc. Not that handy to the CBD, depends where your job is. Regular public transport goes past the front gate, handy for pub nights.

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
