This summer I will permanently move to a large U.S. metropolitan area for work. It's a 14-hour drive away from where I currently live. I don't know anyone there, but I have wanted to move to this city. When I get there, I will look for a long-term place to live. It could take several weeks until it's ready to move in.

In the meanwhile, I plan on renting a room in a dorm-style building: $100 per week to share a four-person dorm room and common bathroom in a multi-room building. It's similar to a hostel, I guess (I've never been in one). You are guaranteed to keep renewing your space each week if you pay upfront and follow the rules.

What have you heard about places like these temporary-housing dorms?
