The Tiny (and Terrifying) Apartment Classifieds of Craigslist

If you're new to the city, going through a breakup, or just trying to save up some cash, moving into a small, cheap apartment is a no-brainer. However, not all apartments are created equal, and certainly not all Craigslist ads are created equal. The classifieds section of Craigslist has become the playground of spammers, scammers and really creepy dudes, and finding a legit, decent apartment can seem like a very daunting task. Those who spend the time digging through the piles of internet garbage that is the Craigslist classifieds section may be rewarded in the end with an awesome roommate and really swell apartment. On the other hand, there's no shortage of just straight up terrifying places to lay your head down. Here are some of the tiniest and most terrifying places on Craigslist right now.

So much NOPE.


Pizza lovers will be able to preheat their oven without getting out of bed!
