A British tourist discovered her £30-a-night Airbnb room in Brooklyn was a tiny cupboard under the stairs with just enough room for an inflatable mattress.

Zoe Reeve arrived at her rented room to find it was a cramped, narrow space under a staircase with only a 'dirty' and 'thin' air bed on the floor.

The 26-year-old said she knew the room in the shared apartment would be small but was shocked to discover how tiny the dimensions were up close when she arrived on Friday.

She also discovered the camping mattress and duvet were 'very thin' and was not even clean, Ms Reeve said in a video posted online. 

In a now-deleted clip posted on Twitter and Instagram she said: 'It's literally a little cupboard with a mattress on the floor. 

'The hilarious part is my bedroom. Can you please bear in mind I'm paying £30 a night for this and it was the cheapest Airbnb I could find in the whole area.'
