Is (was) that a whiteboard on the wall? Looks like it used to be a classroom?
It looks like a board painted white with an attractive fluorescent light mounted on it.

I paid 37.50$ for 1 bed and $50 for the same a bit nearer town (Next to 7 Makara bridge) . Had lift - secure parking. security - nice views. modern and clean.

And yes there were University Ladies and Guys sharing even that modest cost. ( A mountain of flip flops outside their doors)

The place shown by the OP I know because my I saw them when my missus wanted near the central market because of some friend or other.

It is a filthy hole - loads of rats and rubbish - nowhere to park your bike except paying a monthly fee at some nightly place for $30 more.

No lighting - no sunlight except maybe one hour a day.

The stairsways have never been cleaned since the Khmer Rouge - years of slippy filth.

No view except other grimy places opposite.

I'm sorry - I did think the poster was joking originally.

Anyway - some views from my previous places.

Is there a bedroom above the kitchen, or is it a studio?

As has been said a coat of paint would go a long way. And scrub the louvre windows too. How hard can it be? Could easily be a very nice space with that lovely floor.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

Landlords of places like this don't seem to like doing places up, they prefer to keep any previous tenants deposits for any of that or adding on costs at the end. They'd sooner see it lay empty for eternity than pay anything from their own pocket to fix it.

Or gets some chump barang who bargains him down to $200 and thinks he's a winner.

My wife's friend who lives a few houses down pays $25 for the same size and style.

That's the going rate for locals.

End of story...

:lol:

I never asked - she has a bed and a few bits and pieces - wardrobe, small cooker, a couple of chairs.

She works at a small grubby Khmer restaurant nearby.

I have a pic somewhere... Been looking for it..

Here is the lady when my son was young at the restaurant. Inside her house I didn't.

My missus wanted to move round there last year - same old same old.
