Outrage as tiny bedsit flat ‘smaller than a jail cell’ with sink next to bed goes on the market for £390 a month
THIS tiny bed apartment has sparked outrage as it’s been described as “smaller than a prison cell” and the bed is inches from the kitchen sink.
For £390 a month you have the privilege of sharing your bathroom with other housemates in the house.

Photos from the “Bedroom in a Large Victorian House” show the sparsely decorated room with the bed filling a narrow hallway and dated kitchen units alongside.
Tiny room in Kensington, London has a small hob with socket, sink with cabinets and underneath a microwave and fridge.
It appears to have a chest of drawers and a closet taking up every inch of space.
Less than a meter away is the single bed crammed in with a small table and chairs at the other end – at least you don’t have to walk far for breakfast.
Twitter users joked that they saw prison cells larger than the tiny space.
One user captioned it: “Randomly browsing apartments on Zoopla for no reason and I came across this. London housing is such a joke.”
Although the apartment, which is also rented for at least six months, was first listed in November last year, it has struggled to attract renters.
The listing states that the property is geared toward students and professionals, with bonuses of on-street parking and a variety of shops, gyms, and restaurants in close proximity.
They also state that it is “excellently located” between West Kensington and Baron’s Court stations and is easily accessible from the M4, A40, A4 and Heathrow Airport.
One person replied: “Omgggg”.
“WHO WOULD WANT TO LIVE LIKE THIS?” asked another.
Another simply replied, “HAHAHAHA”.
