How to find a cheap flat in Berlin

Berlin

Berlin Friedrichstrasse Station

It has become really hard to find a flat in Berlin, yet to find a cheap one. Here is the trick I used to find one:

  • Go to http://ebay-kleinanzeigen.de
  • Hit refresh every 1 or 2 minutes (yes I’m not kidding)
  • Whenever you find a new ad, click it and send a short concise message expressing your interest.

In other words, try to be the FIRST to contact the ad poster. This way you have a high chance to be selected for a viewing. Otherwise, you have no chance.

How to get a cheap ticket to Alhambra when sold-out

Alhambra of Granada

You probably thought that getting a ticket to the Alhambra of Granada is so simple right? I’m pretty sure you never thought you would need to buy the ticket couple months in advance and now you are stuck between spending $100 or $200 for a single ticket from an agency.

I’m sure you checked this link already and non of the methods mentioned there worked. So I will tell you how I managed to get a ticket a week before my intended visit for $19 only.

I simply sent several emails to hostels/hotels in Granada mentioning that I will only book a room with them if they can find me a ticket to Alhambra. One of them happened to be Granada Inn Backpackers and it actually worked out pretty well 🙂

Some pictures from my visit to get you excited:
