    I lived in Bishkek for 6 months about 3 years ago. I don't know about rental prices, but the city is generally cheap.

    I was only earning650/month, but was able to save at least 50%. I went out every night (i don't like cooking) and travelled the country extensively. Of course, if you only shop at Vefa Centre, drink coffe at Fatboy's and drink at Metro, you'll spend a lot.
