September 24th, 2018

Many people dream of having a bigger home. You’ll even hear people complain about their tiny New York City apartments that are costing them a fortune.

But in some places around the world, housing space can be super tiny.

You wouldn’t believe the tight and cramped spaces some people are living in. Some of the 10 apartments we’re about to show you are even smaller than a jail cell.

Here Are 10 Of The Tiniest Apartments You’ve Ever Seen:

1) Manhattan 90-Square-Foot Apartment

We’ve seen tinier but for the price this person is paying, it’s pretty ridiculous. This 90-square-foot apartment in Manhattan costs $700 per month to rent. Felice Cohen says it sucked not having a kitchen or a couch but she was happy in her small space.

2) Hong Kong 4-Square-Foot Apartment

Space is so limited in places like Hong Kong that they offer something called a “microunit.” It is a whopping 4-square-foot space with a cage that costs $167 a month to rent. Leung Cho-yin told the New York Daily News that his space is riddled with bedbugs that constantly bite him. The people who share these micro spaces wash their clothes in a communal bucket and share a two-stall bathroom. Their kitchen consists of a sink. It’s basically a legal slum.
