It is highly recommended live once in life experience shared flats, especially when you have the chance to meet people from all over the world want to have fun, to enjoy together, to meet other people and learn from them. One of the things I liked about shared flats, is to see how people cook, always stay with small details, for example, fry the couscous with oil and garlic before adding the water, add a little sugar in the tomato sauce to cut the acidity or seize the heads of the prawns to give more flavor to the rice while boiling. Rich, rich!

So you must pay attention and try to develop a rapport with your colleagues, seekest while being tolerant of his hobbies. The order, cleaning, times, noise, parties, guests… there are many points on which we have to find a middle ground for the floor work. It is best to know the idea of coexistence that each one before signing a contract.
One of the strengths of RoomGranada is the cleaning service areas, which avoids the problem of organizing and controlling everyone to do their shifts.
