The price for the small rental was originally $ 280 per person. week, but was reduced to $ 230 per week. week.
Reddit users slammed the property list based on its condition and prices, with one user claiming “the whole place looks like it’s being held together by a bit of masking tape and some old nails”. They described the ad as “bold”.
“Remember in the ’90s, when a child living under the stairs was a sign of a terrible situation. Welcome to Sydney in 2022!” said another user who posted the link.
Another Reddit user said the owners “took p ***” and claimed they had to be paid to live in such a property.
Other users pointed out the studio’s proximity to the neighbor’s pool and questioned whether the home was a converted pool house.
Commentators on the platform also accused the ad photographer of distorting the appearance of the studio by “really trying to work with that wide-angle lens”.
“I’m just amazed that someone would actually advertise these pictures and ask for money,” wrote one Reddit user.
“Where is the feeling of shame? Or even a half-baked attempt to show something appealing?”
Another user added: “I think they have more space in prison”.
