If you're seeking a tranquil environment, this confusing rental at Dufferin and King is not for you. There's photos posted of beer cans scattered on the table, an unknown food item cooking on the stove top, and for some reason, leftover onions and garlic in the kitchen.

The guy seeking a roommate is also a self proclaimed garbage picker. Beware.
