Spacious Mattress for Rent


Finding the right place to rent at an affordable price is difficult to do these days. With rent only increasing, it’s no wonder that residents are trying to squeeze every last drop they can out of their homes.

An East York, Toronto, resident is trying to rent out a mattress squished in the middle of their living room for a whopping $800 a month. The resident posted the ad on Kijiji, a popular buy, sell and trade website in Canada. The ad has since been viewed 2,000 over the last month. Whether it’s been a good way to get eyes on the listing or with people shocked by the posting.

“I’ve a spacious den room which is ready to be moved in effective September 1st, 2022. I’ll prefer someone who wants to occupy this den room for a longer period. Also, I’m looking for an individual who is quite, clean & respects others living in the apartment. No low ballers and looking for serious inquiries only,” the ad reads.

Despite the ad specifying that the mattress is in a den, the area mentions the unit is 600 square feet. A typical one-bedroom apartment is around that size, which means the live quarters are going to be quite tight for two people to live comfortably. On further inspection, a second photo shows the bed sandwiched between a pair of couches.

Although you’ll have to sleep in the living room, all utilities are included and other amenities include an elevator. The unit is not pet friendly and is non-smoking.
