Tourist Books Airbnb That Turns Out To Be A Shipping Container

A British tourist visiting Amsterdam thought he’d found a bargain on Airbnb – until he laid eyes on what he’d paid for.

Ben Speller of London booked a “clean room with a private bathroom” for £100 – about $127.  But when he arrived, his ‘clean room’ turned out to be a shipping container parked on the side of the road – although it did have a window, at least.

Speller says he booked a hotel immediately after seeing the container – but admits that “I got my £100 quid’s worth in comedy value”.
