Auckland may be going through a housing crisis, but that hasn't stopped absolute steals from flooding Trade Me.

One such option has been advertised as a "unique living opportunity in the heart of the city", for a mere $200 a week.

There's one tiny catch though: all you get for that price is a sleeping pod. But on the plus side, the bottom pod is discounted and is only $180 a week.

An ad on Trade Me, posted by Ray White Real Estate, tries to play up what a good deal it is. The individual pods are "state of the art", with a flat screen TV, internet connection, a locker and secure swipe access.

"The best thing about this setup is that all utilities are included! So NO power, water or internet bills to worry about!" the ad reads.

But couples are out of luck - it's only one person to a pod.

The ad has since been removed and a Ray White Real Estate agent wouldn't comment when contacted by Newshub.

"The listing was withdrawn from our website and I have no comment," they said.

In comparison, a furnished one-bedroom apartment with your own facilities on Nelson St will set you back $300 a week, a furnished studio on Wakefield St is $310, and a furnished one-bedroom on Hobson St is $580 a week.
