Why I can't find any hostels in yellowpages.md ?
I look for monthly room renting in Chisinau, please recommend me some (non-english) cheap local hostels ?
And which is the best non-english website for room renting advertisings in Chisinau ?
what is the renting advertising newspaper in Chisinau ?
(and please no need to tell me those common English international booking websites that everyone knows )
As far as I know there are no "hostels" in Chisinau. Depending on your length of stay I would consider renting an apartment, or book into Hotel Cosmos for a couple of nights and find a room once there. If you are staying for several months you could rent an apartment "privately" for around 2-300 $ a month.
Homeservice.md (I think) rent apartments on a daily/weekly basis as do another whose name I cannot remember at the moment, but both are located almost opposite Hotel Cosmos on Blvd Negruzzi.
Alternatively, have a look on couchsurfing.com, if it still exists.
There are (youth-) hostels in Chisinau. I stayed for one night at a youth hostel at B-dul Stefan cel mare, corner near strada vasile alecsandri. Very cheap. Other nights i have stayed at Hotel Tourist, approx 20 euro per night.
Renting apartment: check Marisha (www.marisha.net / 06-915-5753, 488 258. ) The same buro also has names of home-stay places.
Try airbnb.com. You will get excellent hostel and apartments cheaply.
