Leiden is a fabulous city to live in, the cost of living is high here as in most of the Netherlands, however earnings are high to compensate, their is a Lidl supermarket nearby so you can get groceries less than the price here.

Taxes are high in the Netherlands 30% plus, however the country is very well maintained and the public services are excellent, the roads are a pleasure to drive on.

Housing and accommodation are pricey as their is high demand for it, i recommend making a private arrangement like i have. Most estate agents advertise apartments at over 1000 euros per month.

All in all Leiden is a great place to live, as long as you are on a decent salary.
