Great app

This app is great for finding a room. I found the room I currently live in on Spare Room. My building has laundry, a gym and a lounge for $800/mo which is a steal in nyc. The app is very organized and you can search for specific areas you would like to live in. Definitely recommend if you’re looking for a room or apartment to Roomate in. Good luck !

a nice app and also Missedjudge

i wrote a 3 star due to lact of default. i posted an add for share a room with someone else. was place inappropriate. i have already seen this although i have to ask “spareroom”, does Person seeking Double bed also inappropriate? its basically a hotel. two separate beds in a shared room. what difference does what i did have any difference? anyways i won’t fret any further. there other apps other than “spareroom”.

as far as the app states its a nice or optional to find roommates. or people who are traveling or students. although i can’t guarantee you will find much. as every were else. you have to be careful not to accept a good offer to quickly. since it fails to do background checks. while finding room it also comes with a default.

@ to the reviewers at spareroom. i already submitted a resquest. “Jennifer-: site moderator” you should definitely look into the double bed option as its also meant for female and male. but its your app. thank you and good day.

Created by scammer, to take your money!!!

This app seems to have a nice functional interface, but after using it for almost a week and sending out over 44 text messages to people who are in the same price range, looks like no one even responds to you. Basically only 2 people responded out of 44 people. And those two said, they account is old and excused themselves for not taking their account down. It’s a bit expensive for the outcome. For now I do not even feel like anyone is even interested, seems like all accounts are fake!? Should this app be helpful, I’ll write a better review. After using this app for more than a month. Dear all, it’s created by scammer to make money and I had 0 results. Pls save your money. I’m a host on Airbnb with over 1000 reviews and 5000 bookings.
