- Property widely mocked on social media, with some comparing it to a prison cell
A studio flat with a toilet in the middle is up for rent for £1,000 a month – despite being compared to a prison cell.
Described as ‘lovely’ by the agency letting the property, the one-bedroom flat in Brighton comes with a shower and drainage area just metres from the bed.
The bedroom’s floor is a mixture of carpet and vinyl, with no door separating the sleeping area and the ‘en-suite wet-room area’.
It is being let by Mishon Mackay Lettings, who advertise the flat’s location and ‘fully refurbished’ interior as its main selling points.

Accompanying photos show the sparsely decorated bedroom complete with a toilet just a metre from the prospective tenant’s bed.
The flat’s shower is suspended from the ceiling above a strip of drainage in the middle of the wet room area.

Bertha Mason added: ‘It’s a toilet with a bed in. Would suit someone who doesn’t bring friends back or has a major bowel problem.’
