A Londoner is renting out a bed in a cupboard for £500pcm

Forget going for a Christmas meal at Hogwarts, if you want the authentic Harry Potter experience then look no further than this 'room' in Clapham.

Priced at £500pcm, the tiny space can only be described as a literal cupboard under the stairs. Not only is it so small you can only just fit a mattress in there, it also has actual coats hanging up inside it.

Twitter user Alex Lomax went to go view the room after seeing it advertised on The advert, which didn't have any pictures, read: 'we are looking for a friendly, open-minded and outgoing person to join our houseshare in a great period house in Clapham. We’re a good bunch and like to chill out a lot together – not really looking for somebody that just wants to stay in their room.'

She posted photos of the property on Twitter, writing 'I have literally just been shown a bed under the stairs for £500 a month. F you London!'

The question is: which is shitter, this cupboard or the tent-in-a-dining-room that went up for rent in Gipsy Hill earlier this month?
