Selected comments from Mop

蹲在墙头等杏儿:

China claims to be as large as 9.6 million square kilometers. And yet [we] have to sleep this way?

失o忆:

It looks like a place for laying dead bodies.

贫困下岗:

Only China’s firefighting brigades will let this inn run! You will be chocked to death even by smoking.

小猫小狗打酱油:

Why it looks like a place for locking up dogs in those American movies?? A dog shelter??

It can be marketed for sleeping berths on the train.

webdav01:

If you fart, you will be killed by your own stinky gas.

我叫啊V:

Is it necessary? We can only be like this when the government doesn’t regulate housing prices? This is also an insult on people.

So they leave a huge number of houses empty and let us live in the cage?

There is no place for rabble to hide despite 9.6 million square kilometers of land.

It reminds me of Auschwitz concentration camp

The difference is, you have to pay here.

    Haha! I never seen this before. It is great for single home renters that they wanted to save more. I think is much cheaper.

    I tried to go there, but I was told foreigners are not allowed to stay there. Chinese only.
