I live in a three-bedroom apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. One of my roommates I have been living with for about three years and we get along great. Our schedules are pretty conducive to a working roommate relationship and everything was fine. We had this girl living with us but she moved back home to Thailand so we needed to fill the room. We found this kid through a mutual friend of ours to rent the room. He was a young college student and at first we thought it would be a good fit but it turned out not to work out for a number of reasons. He was constantly smoking pot in the apartment and it really stank up the whole place and was very distracting. We were even starting to get complaints from other apartments on our floor. At the end of his lease we elected not to renew him and we created a listing for the room on Roomster. Their service was very helpful because you can tailor your listing exactly how you want and exclude smokers or excessive partyers from it. We found a really nice, quiet girl to rent the room and we couldn’t be happier.
