The answers recommend idealista.com, which I found to be a really useful flat hunting tool during my year abroad in Madrid! I think there is also a feature on the site where you can say that you are looking for Spanish flatmates. Good luck!

Don't worry about whether you have somewhere to live. Through being given the contact details of a friend of a friend of one of my English language assistant predecessors in Melilla, I was lucky enough to be able organise accommodation before arriving. I was careful and asked for some photos of the flat beforehand and had several conversations with my future house mate. From seeing the photos and speaking to her, I felt like I would be happy living there. It's not always easy, reliable or cheap to find a place to live online (If you want to try, for Spain I would suggest http://www.milanuncios.com/), especially in a small place like Melilla. As Melilla is so small, information isn't always posted online and news is often spread by word of mouth, so it's worth asking around. It may be easier to just book a hotel. Its not the end of the world if you have to live there for a few days and chances are someone who you meet will know someone looking for a flat mate. If not, try the student residence.
