Watch: World’s worst airbnb - YouTuber friends create bedroom outside

A group of friends who intentionally created the “world’s worst Airbnb” revealed they have still received bookings.

Rhys Simmons, Jamie Kamaz and Hitchin, are a trio of Youtubers who run ‘Passion squad’ - an entertainment variety channel showcasing all manner of stunts, pranks and quirky content.

They set out to create the “worlds worst Airbnb”, that simply consisted of a mattress and a bedside table - with a lamp and two glasses of water - in the middle of a field in north London.

To their surprise, they received a remarkable amount of interest upon listing the ‘property’ on Airbnb and, had they taken the punters' money, would have turned a profit.

Simmons, from Enfield, said: “Myself and some mates came together to create the worst Airbnb ever seen.

"We gathered together a load of items we found on Facebook for free to assemble a terrible Airbnb experience.”

He added that to their surprise there was “an insane amount of interest” for people to come and stay.

“We were not pleased with the previous price on our last Airbnb stay, so we decided to take it upon ourselves to make our own,” he added.

"It led us to create what is almost definitely the worst Airbnb ever created. This was an insane accomplishment. To create the worst Airbnb in the world and then get a crazy amount of requests to stay is something that we will never forget.

"You never know, we may have to open this thing up for full-time business.”

On Airbnb’s site it says the basic requirements for hosts is to provide essential amenities such as toilet paper, hand and body soap, towels, linen and pillows.
