What’s New

Version 5.53

In this update, we’ve made significant improvements to the saved ads experience. You can now filter them by status (saved, contacted, shown interest, hidden), sort them (newest, last updated, highest rent/budget, lowest rent/budget), and view them on a map.

We’ve also added some extra functionality to messaging. If you’ve got multiple active ads, you’ll now be able to filter your conversations to see just ones about a specific ad or just those from users with room wanted ads you’ve contacted.

As always, we'd love to hear your thoughts on the things we can do to improve our app. You can send us your suggestions using the feedback option at the bottom of the Home screen.

Perfect app for finding tenants

I’ve tried quite a few apps and this is the only FREE app that’s always made the process of finding tenants easy and streamlined. I’ve successfully gotten both my rooms rented for the last 3 years, often in less than a month. I also appreciate Customer Service for their support when a candidate acted weird. They stepped in immediately and kicked them off the site. 😁 👏

terrible app

You get a lot of scammers and they charge you a fortune and again and again they ask you to renew and then you do just to see one message after you've already unsubscribed, you get another straight message and then you can see that message but then you can't see her reply,if she even made one... and once you've unsubscribed after you another stray message that I just mentioned... you, that is me or I, have to reactivate and it charged me a whole lotta money again and it's like less than a month that you get to have your ad shown and get replies from people. There was no message and tried to deactivate and I'm calling to complain them and try to get some money back from them because they're app doesn't work for me anyway and maybe for somebody else or for some people that blocked interest but it doesn't work for me especially right now.

Do not trust these people unless you want to spend a lot of money over and over again for like three weeks 20 bucks first time and then 18 bucks second time etc. etc. it's just a rip off or at least for me. as always, Buyer Beware.

Developer Response ,

Hi Lynn, thank you for reaching out. Once a conversation has begun on our site you won't need to pay to continue it, if you've received a reply from a message you sent you can reply without the upgrade.

You may receive Early Bird matches once your upgrade has run out, if you don't want to upgrade again you can contact them for free after 7 days or you can show interest for free, this lets them know you're interested and if they are too they can contact you.

We do need to offer a premium service in order to keep our site running and help people find homes. We make this service optional and many of our users use our free service.

We can't see you've ever contacted us to ask for assistance with your account, we'd be happy to help. Please contact us directly at

Best wishes,
The SpareRoom Team

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.
