So I'm looking at rents on Craigslist...
I bet half of these are scams.
But so far, I notice Copenhagen and the Danish KRONE goes FAR with the U.S. dollar.
The Czech currency also goes far.
The EUR and pound is so bad it makes it difficult for someone with dollars.
Any advice or tips from people who've traveled or lived in Europe and looked for the CHEAPEST places to live?
I rented a flat in Paris once for about $700 Euros. That was nice! But I'm looking to save money and not have to worry about my living expenses. I want to live for the same amount I live in the US, which is $350 for rent and all utilities.

If you want to share a place, you can find that in most European cities. If you need your own place, the cheapest capital cities that aren't shitholes (like Tirana, perhaps) would probably be Belgrade, Sofia, Sarajevo. You can get one-bedroom flats in the city centers for $250. Bucharest would probably be only a little bit more expensive. All four of these cities get great reviews for the looks of the women, and I can confirm that you will find many lookers in Belgrade and Sarajevo.
For a more upscale place, you could probably find something living alone for $350-400 in Prague or Warsaw, though you might have to get a little out of the city center. Big thumbs up on the women in both cities from me, though English is a problem if your taste runs to milf age-group types. Rents used to be low in Berlin just a few years ago, though I think they've gone up lately. You might still be able to find something in a district like Neukoln (sp). Eurobrat would probably have thoughts on this. It's easy to get by in English in Germany.
No matter how the dollar stacks up against the krone, I doubt you can find anything in Scandanavia or western Europe to compare with what you would pay in eastern and southeast Europe. Avoiding countries that use the euro is obviously key, Berlin being the only exception in the places I've mentioned.
Very helpful, thank you.
Berlin is a not so normal European city. Yes people speak english here but only in certain districts, and basic German is very helpful and not hard to learn at all coming from English. If you can't at least memorize a few phrases or put some effort into the host countries language then you probably don't belong in Europe.
