What are the reasonable areas for a student to stay in Vancouver or near Vancouver

I met a former student on the Skytrain the other day—he got a share situation, with one roommate, for $800/month each in Richmond.

He likes skateboarding, travels to Vancouver to meet up with his old friends, is planning to get into plumbing apprenticeship—which is to indicate that I don’t think he is fussy about lifestyle so it might not be much of a place.
