8m2 Room to rent in Amsterdam, not for the claustrophobic

The Dutch aren’t exactly well known for their sense of humour, but some of the best laughs to be had anywhere in the world are on Dutch property rental sites.

Today, someone drew my attention to a wonderful deal. For 100 euros a month, there’s a fabulous 8m2 room to rent in Amsterdam. Apart from being rather cosy, it only has a chemical toilet. In addition, in return for renting this fabulous room, you’ll have to work 40-50 hours a month. What a bargain! Lekker goedkoop!

Preferably an international

In the past, I’ve written here about how difficult it is for international students to find accommodation due to all the ‘No Internationals’ disclaimers in room ads. But for once, being a foreigner has it’s advantages as the landlord is actively looking for one.

So there you have it, a wonderful opportunity for someone who isn’t too tall or squeamish. Enjoy!

If you’d like to grab this bargain here’s the original ad.

No claustrophobia sufferers were hurt during the writing of this post.
