The Craigslist ad says:

“Bachelor’s Studio located on the 2nd floor available now! Unit has no kitchen. It’s basically a room with closet and bathroom. Walking distance from Mt. Vermont Sq 7th St – Convention Center (Green and Yellow lines), McPherson Square Station (Blue and Orange lines), Logan Circle. Chinatown and near cross-town/downtown buses; Latin American Restaurant across the street, and more! Unit was recently renovated and has wood floors. A $50 application fee, credit screening and one month’s deposit required.”

$750 sound right for a Bachelor’s Studio (no kitchen) here?

    it took me a minute, but that no bathroom thing sounded so familiar:

    Wow. No kitchen? What strange things people will do (or do without) to live downtown …

  • joker

    Hheheh…no. This was a bad deal at $850, its a barely less of a bad deal at 750. They make slasher movies about apts like that.

    I think it’s best to think of this as a long term hotel/hostel. So when you think about it, not unreasonable for $25/night. I can’t imagine them requiring a long-term lease. Perhaps, it’d better if they just furnished it and sought long term business travelers

      That said, how depressing to look at this after the $7 mil house porn! The “her’s” dressing room is bigger than this joint

    I know some people who NEVER use their kitchens… they eat out for every meal. Find someone like that who’s desperate to live in the city, buy a mini fridge, and you’re set! Definitely a niche target renter but I bet someone out there would go for it.

    Mini fridge, microwave, hotplate. No problem.

    Some people really enjoy dorm life

  • Florista

    Really???? A $50 application fee for THAT?!!
