Moving to Lyon... Advice?


I'm moving to Lyon in a few weeks for at least the next 3 years and have so many questions, one of which is housing! So if anyone could help, I'd be extremely appreciative...

Firstly, where's the best bit to live (on limited budget!) for a 24 year old! I know the 4th is supposed to be cool and artsy but know very little of the rest of Lyon. I'd preferably like a decent studio flat...

Also, I'm trying to get my head around the fees (my French is terrible but will hopefully improve sharpish!). It seems that lots of places charge extortionate fees for writing up contracts etc. Lots that I have seen are about the same as one months rent... Is this normal or am I misunderstanding something?

Thanks for any help in advance!


P.S. I don't know anyone in Lyon so if anyone fancies a coffee and speaks English, I would love to in a few weeks!
