“Looks Like A Coffin” — Netizens Outraged By Super Tiny Room For Rent At RM300


Finding a place a stay is undoubtedly a challenge for anyone who’s living away from family for work. On top of that, they also have to struggle with sky-high rental fees at certain locations where rooms are scarce.

A Twitter user has recently shared a photo of a room that had a space like that of a coffin’s, sparking indignation among netizens.

They’ve also likened the room to Hong Kong’s notorious “coffin houses”, where a single house is divided into multiple “sub units” and forces tenants to live in dangerous and unhygienic conditions.
