My main concern is accomodation. I'm thinking my best bet is to shack up in a student hostel initially, and then find a flat ASAP. I won't have work right away so I'll be relying on the student allowance initially.
Can anyone recommend good hostels near AUT? Within walking distance (I'm a good walker) is ideal, or otherwise along bus routes. I'm female, so safety is a concern (both with the hostel and with the travel). Lastly I'm 29 and would prefer not to be stuck with partying 18yos, although since this will ideally only be temporary accomodation I can live with it.
Any other advice anyone has would be greatly appreciated as well! Thanks very much. :>
