Finding a good place to live isn’t easy. Especially if you’re living in a major city like Los Angeles or New York. Most likely, you’ll be overpaying for a pretty crappy living space that you’ll be too embarrassed to let anyone see. Even if that’s the case, you’re still better off than any of the people who end up renting any of the rooms on The Worst Room – a Tumblr that is exactly what the title says. Some are real, some may not be, but they’re all definitely the worst rentals you’ll see. Take a look at some of these horrid rooms for rent and their descriptions so you can go home to your crappy apartment and be beyond thankful you have it.
