Apartment hunting in Boston is overwhelming for a whole slew of reasons—heavy competition, pricing, and spiraling out of control on Craigslist are just a few of them. So, for your convenience, we’re highlighting a few Zumper listings with one unique characteristic. This round, it’s places asking $1,600 or less per month—because who has thousands to drop on a rental, anyway?

Below, peruse five three-bedroom apartments for rent in Boston for $1,600 or less per month.

1. Glenwood Avenue #1, Hyde Park
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,300 per month

Wood panel lovers can rejoice in this retro home. The funky aesthetic extends to the bathroom, which is a multi-colored wonderland with ceramic tiles covering even the ceiling. Wall-to-wall carpeting affects a cozy ambiance, and tons of cabinet and closet space—including a walk-in in the bedroom—ensures tenants will have a place for everything. Available September 1st, rent includes all utilities minus wifi.

2. 7 Cass Street #10, West Roxbury
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,600 per month

No broker fee is necessary to secure this lovely apartment, which sits on immaculately landscaped grounds. A modern kitchen and bathroom, open living room, and a large bedroom make the living easy long after the summer is over. But while the humidity still hangs in the air, dip your toes in the in-ground swimming pool located on the premises.

3. 22 Henchman Street #5R, North End
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1600 per month

Brick is a motif throughout this charming apartment, from the building’s classic North End exterior, to the exposed brick wall in the bedroom, to the brick chimneys and patios you can glimpse from its roof deck. Just off Commercial Street, the North End nest grants equally as easy access to the bars and ristorantes as it does to the waterfront. Soaked in sunlight, this one-bedroom is still available for September 1st.

4. 258 Chestnut Hill Avenue, Brighton
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,550 per month

Though its below-ground level limits natural light, this pad still features plenty of bright details, such as blue-tiled bathroom walls and elegant French doors leading into the eat-in kitchen. Situated right off of Cleveland Circle, living here means unbelievably easy access to the sparkling mile-and-a-half loop around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir. Plus, rent includes one parking spot. (Though it’s a quick walk to the C Line for car-less commuters.)

5. 19 Beechcroft Street #1, Brighton
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,600 per month

There’s no chance of feeling cramped in this warm and welcoming Oak Square den, which features an eat-in kitchen, sizable bedroom, and large living room. Brick homes populate the tree-lined street, which is wonderfully residential while still close to Brighton center. There is no laundry on the premises, but the apartment comes with a parking spot, and it is a quick jaunt to the laundromat on the corner.
