I've been looking to rent a room and kept being referred to roomster from people's listings on craigslist. Once I click on the link it takes me to the site, but the listing is not there. You can imagine how frustrating it is to think you found a potential great room only to be led to a site you have to pay for. Of course, I've also checked out listings on roomster alone and have reached out to people... I even paid to read my "so called" messages only to find that they're non existent or nothing of any value. Seems to me a lot of the posts I've found are set up to have you believe it's real, even down to having you describe yourself, occupation and phone number, only to be texted a link to join the site...sounds pretty scam-ish to me. Bottom line, it is extremely annoying to be given the run around especially during this time of need, but once my little 5 day trial is up, believe me I will discontinue my subscription and never use this site again. It is an utter waste of my time.
In summary, I would not recommend Roomster to a friend.
