Eight people in two rooms and one in the living room: the small apartment announced for nine people of Asian origin.

This Pyrmont property is looking for four Asian women to move to the property. It would cost the tenants $ 140 per week

A small unit announced to house nine people is just one example of the wave of overcrowding sweeping Sydney, with officials saying that the people who live in those overcrowded homes are technically homeless.

Two advertisements published in Gumtree request that eight "Asian people" move to two separate rooms on the same property as Pyrmont. The ad says that a person will also sleep in the living room.

"Four people in the main room, four people in the second room, one person in life (but it is separate)," says the ad.

Four women will pay $ 140 per week to stay in one of the narrow rooms and four men pay $ 130 per week for the other. Both rooms have two bunk beds.

The ad says there is a minimum stay of two months and there is a discount of $ 20 in the first week if you move after the first inspection.

The spooky discovery is not uncommon for the popular and luxurious suburbs of the city center such as Haymarket, Chippendale, Broadway and Pyrmont.

Another ad in Pyrmont is requesting two people to move into a room for three people for $ 160 per person per week.

A different property is looking for a man to join a quad room in a shared house.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) says that people living in inadequate housing are considered homeless.

"People who live in severely populated (ie, habitual residents of households who need four or more additional bedrooms to properly accommodate them) have been the largest homeless group in each of the last four Censuses & # 39; said ABS.

Statistics show that people living in overcrowded housing tend to be young people who have come from India, China, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Thailand and Taiwan. It is also likely that they are international students.

Pru Goward, the Minister of Social Housing, faces the task of improving overcrowding and will convene the first Ministerial Round Table on state overcrowding, the Daily Telegraph reported.

"Often, people who live in severely overcrowded homes will not see themselves as homeless, so we must understand how we can help them change their living situation," said Ms. Goward.

The round table will receive experts in the lack of housing and those who have lived in the streets in September to develop strategies that help people find accommodation.

Over the next four years, the government pledged $ 1 billion in services for the homeless.

"Since 2001, NSW has seen an increase of more than threefold in people living in severely populated housing," said Ms. Goward.

& # 39; No one should live in an accommodation that is dangerous to their health and well-being.
