  • Listing claims the studios are ‘extremely spacious’ and the price includes bills

A small student flat that costs a staggering £28,368-a-year has a kitchen which is hidden in a cupboard.

The pokey studio flat – located in a Grade II Listed building – is in Marylebone, central London.

Whilst the one-bed pad has a double bed and a study desk with one chair, it has nowhere to eat your food.

And what appears to be your average white storage cupboards is actually the ‘private kitchenette’ that it states in the description on OpenRent. 

The doors open up to reveal a tiny hob, sink and a microwave tucked away on a shelf.

The studio also does not appear to have an oven, meaning students would have cook meals they can make using a only hob, or shell out on another extra appliance. 

The work surfaces also has limited space, with just about enough room for a toaster and kettle. 

The room does not contain a washing machine, with students having to use a launderette on site.

It is available to rent for ££2,364-a-month for the start of the next academic term. 

Dwellers have to stay for a year as a minimum tenancy, which means they will shell out a whopping £28,368 over 12 months.

But while students might struggle with the eye-watering rent, on top of that they require a £500 deposit.

Bills are included but that is the end of the extras for undergraduate tenants.

No pets are allowed and there is no garden or parking available.
