The usual sites are for longer term rents in Austria - I need a room for a month. Obviusly, a hotel would be too expensive.

What site or social media group could help me finding a room for a month, possibly in a WG?

    The usual suspect would be Airbnb. You may also look for “serviced apartments”.

  • Wohnunggemeinschaft, Vienna people should recognize that.

If you want to stay for a month in Vienna a vacation rental/Airbnb would be the most common choice. Search for "Ferienwohnung Wien" and you will find multiple websites offering accommodations (of which Airbnb usually isn't the cheapest)

A WG is a possible option with the website "WG-Gesucht.de" being a good choice for searching but simply searching for "wg wien" on Google will give you the best results.

Nevertheless I think your chances are slim for a WG as most landlords want long-term tenants. You best chance would be to find somebody who sub-rents their room for some time.

Using social media groups for finding housing isn't a good option if you need to ask for those groups as you're obvious not part of those social groups.

Good luck searching!

  • In Hungary, there are facebook groups for some cities for room search and offer.

  • And yes, sub-rent is the word I looked for. Somebody would go on holiday and I could use that room while it is empty.
