£500 For A Mattress On The Floor, Under The Stairs - Welcome To London

There have been some utterly ludicrous cases of dodgy (and expensive) rooms being put up for rent in the capital recently but this wins everything.

Seriously, stick a fork in us because we’re done. London, we genuinely can’t even…

The room that was discovered by prospective tenant Alex Lomax initially sounded pretty great, advertised as:

Now, if we’re being picky we could say that alarm bells should have been ringing at ‘open-minded’, ‘outgoing’, and ‘not really looking for somebody that just wants to stay in their room.’ But that would be picky, and besides, nothing prepares you for this:

rubbish room

rubbish room

Yup, that’s right. It’s a cupboard.

Sure, it has a bed and an apparently free supply of coats and washing powder but it’s definitely a cupboard. Under the stairs, like Harry Mother lovin’ Potter.

London you have just out London’d yourself.
