London's Crappiest ‘Room For Rent' Could Be Yours For £40pw

Posted: Updated:

Londoners rejoice! Are you tired of forking out your entire paycheque on rent? Having to commute for two hours every morning on a crammed train to get into the city centre? Well now you can live in the heart of the capital for a mere £40 per week.

All that is required of you is that you have to be under 5ft 4in, willing to climb up a 10-foot ladder and can't suffer from claustrophobia.

An advert has appeared on Gumtree offering this crap "cute little" loft conversion.

The posting – which we really hope is a fake – reveals the tenant would be sleeping next to a hot water tank.

And yet the advert, on 'special offer' apparently, is an absolute bargain – with renters normally paying out an average of £150 per week for this sort of space in Westminster. AND bills are included.

The full post reads: "We are renting this cute little loft conversion which is a former storage space.

"Please note you cannot stand upright in the room. It comes with its own bedding (freshly washed), parquet flooring and there is enough space to store a few pieces of garment.

"The location is amazing, there are lots of shops, good transport and is right in the heart of Westminster.

"We are generally quite easy going but do not tolerate noise at night or disorderly behaviour. Ideally it would suit someone less than 5’4ft tall and with no history of claustrophobia."
