Hey all you Brussels experts, I have a chance to do an internship with NATO (totally unpaid, naturally) in Brussels, but since I am just finishing my post-grad degree, I am totally broke.
Soooo, where can I find rock-bottom housing in Brussels for a few months (not too ghetto), or does anyone know any little old ladies with a room to rent? I did some basic searching online, but I'd imagine there are some tips I don't know!

Here's a few examples of what is on offer at the moment. The site is updated daily.
It is in dutch, but it shouldn't be to difficult to figure out what's written. Rent is in euro and monthly. A deposit is ussually asked aswell, typically 3 months rent. Electricity, gas and water is not included unless stated otherwise.
Alternatively you can look for a room in Leuven, a big university city with plenty of student rooms, it should be cheaper than the average appartement in BRU and it is not to inconvinient to get to Evere (that's the place where NATO has her headquarters).
