Can you guess how much it costs to rent this London tent?

To rent this tent in a dingy flat in Gipsy Hill, London, you can pay the bargain price of £550 per month. For the amount it would take to rent the north, you can now live in outdoor camping conditions in the comfort of someone else's lounge.

The flatmates explain that they would still eat breakfast and dinner in the room, but there's no need to worry about that. You'll be in a paper-thin, presumably somehow soundproof tent and will clearly still be able to ask people back to your place with no embarassment whatsoever.

Before you say "yes I immediately want to live there", take a look inside.

It has a chair! Perfect for staring at your partner occupying the sleeping bag all night. If you're the kind of couple who sleep in shifts, this tent is ideal for you.

But what of the view? Obviously it's a great view.

Another goddamn winner - you can see a portion of the door! You whack a mirror on that bad boy, you could see a portion of the corridor. London life is pretty f***ing sweet, huh?

The ad (which has been removed after a lot of media attention) went on to say: "During festival season I might need the sleeping bag for a few days and the tent but we should have a sofa by then which you can sleep on instead."

How great is that? A sofa! Don't think about someone using your sleeping bag at a dirty festival, you can lie - bagless - on a sofa for the entire festival and think about how bleak your life is.
