A TikTok user shared a video of their rented home, and it had two rooms referred to as ‘the cave’, a bathroom with a peephole in the door, and what appears to be several years worth of neglect
An unimpressed student has shared a video of their rented home that looks like it could be a set from a horror film.
TikTok user @xx_watdoginator_xx shared a video tour of the student digs with their 116,000 followers – showing them ‘the cave’, the toilet peephole, and an eerie locked attic room.
He also shows the garden, which appears to be a ladder leaning against a wall with plastic bottles strung up from a structure above.
The video soon went viral with one million views, as others quipped that it “looks like a house that was built by someone that’s never seen a house before”.
What do you think about the house, would you live there? Let us know in the comments
In the clip, sarcastically captioned “things in my uni house that just make sense”, the TikTok user shows two rooms known as ‘the cave’, and a third room dubbed ‘the random room that isn’t a fire hazard’ – but really is as it’s filled with wood.
Many of the rooms seem badly run-down, with concrete on the walls, exposed copper piping, holes in the walls, and very oddly placed furnishings.
One of the showers has a ‘skylight’, which is an unfrosted circular window in the ceiling, and one toilet has a peephole in the door – which hopefully looks out, not in.

One of the bedrooms has ‘these weird wire things’ hanging from the ceiling, where a whole has been cut from the room above and wires hang down from the roof.
Then, there’s another attic room which is sealed, with a bolt across the hatch and a padlock on the latch.
The clip proved popular with TikTok users and soon had 116,000 likes and over 1,000 comments.
One user said: “This is by far the most cursed one I’ve ever seen.”
And another added: “Human rights violations left, right, and centre.”
While a third added: “Student houses are some of the most derelict buildings ever. To any students going into a shared house, bring layers – it’ll be cold.”
“This escalated higher than I ever thought it could”, wrote another user.
And someone else simply wrote: “I feel harassed, alarmed, and distressed and I don’t even live there.”
