A Gumtree ad for a 'sh*t room for rent' is going viral for its refreshing honesty

Ah, you had us at ‘sh*t’.

IF YOU THINK Dublin’s rent market is a sham at the moment, check out this luxurious room to rent in London for just €656 a month.

Making matters even worse, London rental agents seem to have given up.

This flat in Mile End simple comes with the big selling point:

Shit room to rent in East London!!!

If that hasn’t quite hooked you, consider that…

The wardrobe is broke on the top, tha mattress doesn’t match with the base.

Not only is there one shit room, but three of them for €164 a week.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, the letting agent Luis Swarovski said that the advert was ‘an honest reflection of the flat at the moment’, but of course if anyone was interested, improvements would be made.

I described it like that because of the present condition. Obviously if someone moves in it will not be like that anymore.

We’re sold.
