RentHoop is the best roommate finder app that also lets you easily find rooms for rent and sublets.
Your first step is to create a profile which will only take a few minutes. Right after that you'll see potential roommates and rooms to rent in your area. To narrow your search you can adjust filters for budget, colleges, lease length, age and gender.
Best of all, it's free to message users.
Each potential roommate has a rich profile with information that will help you gauge whether they’re your perfect roommate. Profiles also include preferences like Dealbreakers and lifestyle questions that help you get to know your roommate.
The majority of our users are in Los Angeles, Seattle and New York City. We’ll be expanding soon! We hope you have a great experience on RentHoop.

Ratings and Reviews
I've been really happy with RentHoop . It's a newer app, so you might stumble upon a glitch, but they're always improving it to flow better and look nicer.
My favorite part of this app is that it lets me FILTER. Whether you're looking for a room or have a room to rent, you can narrow down your search. Prefer a roommate the same gender as you? You can specify. If there isn't a filter you see that you would want, you can always request it on the same screen and look for it to be added later.
I also really like how it allows me to favorite people who I would be interested in messaging for more details. I don't have to message them on the spot, instead I can search through and favorite a few, then come back later and message them right there in the app once I've had a cup of coffee.
Lastly, since I sign in with Facebook, it'll show me if I have mutual friend with that person. I saw someone on the app (who I didn't know) that I shared a friend with, and I was able to reach out to my friend and ask her about the person and set up a coffee date. It gave serious credibility to that potential roommate because I trust my friend's judgement.
App is great! I found a roommate!
I found this app through UW for finding roommates off campus and I have to say it did not disappoint! I made a profile, added some extra pictures and a solid description of my habits/expectations and after a month or so of being on there and messaging with a few people I found a roommate who is a great fit for our household! The interface is great, I like that it offers dealbreakers but once I picked mine I couldn’t change them(or couldn’t figure out how) so make sure they’re accurate! The more you fill out on the profile the more likely you’ll have success!

That's awesome! Hope they're a great roommate. - PB
I’ve used craigslist in the past and some other sketchy apps as far as trying to find a roommate. what i like the most about renthoop is that i learn more about the person im going to live with than just the overselling of how great the room or apartment or house is. makes it way easier to have a better relationship and compatibility with the roommate and it is super simple to use. highly recommend.
