Accommodation in Doha on a student budget

Hi everyone,

I'm a Journalism student from Belgium and will be doing my internship with Al Jazeera English in Doha, Qatar from March 19 to June 5 2018. I'm struggling to find an affordable place to stay during this period, especially since the internship is unpaid and I really have to watch my budget. I've been trying to find something for a few months now and no luck so far. My budget would be around 500-700€ a month, which is even a bit expensive for Belgium, but I can't find anything for this price in Doha.

I am looking for a room + bathroom in a shared flat or a small stand-alone studio. I will receive a scholarship for this internship, but I still have to keep all my expenses to a minimum. I hope someone here can offer some advice on how to proceed in this situation or what my options are.

Thanks very much in advance.

Kind regards,

Hi Katya,

You should perhaps contact the Garveys European Family Club. They have furnished rooms to et at relatively reasonable cost. ***

Good luck!
