As the cost of housing skyrockets in America’s largest cities, an unfortunate trend has emerged. Would be renters are starting to pay top dollar for the most marginal of living conditions. Whether it’s the proliferation of 370 square foot micro apartments in New York, or the backyard tent that was rented out for nearly $1000 a month in California, the trend is undeniable. In the future, Americans will have to pay everything if they want next to nothing.
The latest development in the housing crisis comes from San Francisco (big surprise), where a three-story structure is now home to the “co-creative” Vinyasa Housing Project, which is essentially just a hostel that is only advertised on Airbnb. Here you will find 30 people crammed into a large Victorian style house with a fully stocked communal kitchen and multiple bathrooms on each floor. The cost? $1,800 a month for a bunk bed in a room which you would share with 1-3 other people.
A reporter for CBS San Francisco managed to get a bunk there, and described it as clean and well decorated, but added “You still have those typical roommate issues but times that times 30, because there’s 30 people sharing a house.” Welcome to America, home of the most expensive tenements in the world.
