All ELI participants have a choice between a homestay or shared apartment.
Apartments: The shared apartments have basic furniture. These are chosen to appeal the budget conscious traveler. They are usually located in the neighborhood of Benimaclet, which is conveniently close to the language school we work with. You will have your own bedroom, but bathrooms that are share by 2 or 3 other participants. If there are more than 3 students, at least an extra toilet will be available. All apartments have Internet connection and the rooms with natural light and contain a bed, wardrobe and a desk. You may upgrade to larger, more modern apartments for an additional $25 per week.
Move-in dates are Saturdays (after noon), move out also on Saturdays, but before noon. You may move out mid-week, but will be charged for the full week.
