Temp Housing in Geneva

Hi everyone, i am doing my internship at the permanent mission 24june-30july, together with another friend. We nearly got conned and scammed by people offering to rent their houses online but luckily just before i gave my details and paid through western union (which they asked for), i did a google search online of their email addresses and telephone numbers and found that many have been scammed by them! We are very traumatized by this experience.

The two of us are looking urgently for accommodation in Geneva during this period and we hope that someone can help us with this because most student hostels are already fully booked and we are now not sure what to do as we do not know how to rent houses that are safe.

thank you very very much!
