As Ranked by BilbyandBear
Destination: Marrakech, Morocco
Interesting website for the city: VisitMorocco.com
 
Is it easy to navigate around? Not easy. It is a large sprawling city so you will rely on taxi's. Within the popular medina where tourists flock is a maze of pedestrian streets and this will test the best of travelers. 0
 
Hostels and Hotels (few, many, tons): Heaps of both. This also includes Riads, a large home, often with many rooms that has a beautiful courtyard in the middle. 2
 
Best part of the city? The setting of the city is exotic.  Orange hues, palm trees, donkeys, hooded locals, snakes and monkeys working together to get your photograph (and money), perfect blue skies and an African sunset onto the mountain ranges.

Is it easy to navigate around? Yes, it is a small city however the surrounding nature is vast. 2
 
Hostels and Hotels (few, many, tons): Plenty of good options - well catered for visiting tourists. 2
 
Best part of the city? The rock formations all around the city such as Rose Valley. Star Wars supposedly had some locations filmed here and its not surprising given how out-of-the-world this place looks.

Living in the real world is very different to the online environment. However student accommodation websites are taking very real living situations and making them logically accessible online.

HousingAnywhere.com
Countries/cities: many countries from all over the world
 
An exciting website with the clever concept that makes it possible to sublet your room while studying abroad. Further having the option to find a new place in your host city. All relevant search options are available and the layout is clearly arranged. With your student e-mail-address you are able to use their service for free. A website which is extremely helpful for students planning to study abroad!
 
Studentmundial.com
Countries/Cities: Best for Southern Europe, UK and France, but there are offers from around the globe.
 
Student Mundial provides a fresh and cool website specialised on student accommodation! Great for students looking for a place in the UK, Southern Europe or France, but the website is expanding to other areas! You can find out how student-suitable your area is (close to bars, pubs and places to do your daily shopping) and you can chat with potential flatmates. Another very good service is that you can check the distance of a room/flat to your university/college easily on the website and the map layout is very helpful. Also check out their student guide for the city you're planning to study in!

Hostels and Hotels (few, many, tons): Plenty, all seem well priced as you would expect in this region. 2
 
Best part of the city? The Mostar bridge. The design is unmistakeable. If you feel wobbly looking down over the bridge, just think how the divers who jump off its middle feel.
