Want to stay in this Airbnb in Boston? It costs $84 a night.

It has a futon for sleeping, a stove and sink for cooking and yes, there is a toilet. This one-person box on wheels is Airbnb's latest quirky addition and can be rented on your next trip to Boston.

 We think it's a stretch to call it a house but that is what artist Jeff Smith is advertising it as on the accommodation sharing website. 

"This house is very small, but super convenient. It's on wheels and one reasonably fit person can roll it anywhere," he wrote on the listing.

The tiny house has plenty of windows to avoid any claustrophobia.

"It also fits in a regular-sized van. Staying in the smallest house in the world is a unique experience and not for regular people."

Smith said he created the trailer home, which costs $84 a night to rent, as a commentary on the US's fascination with tiny houses.

"The Tiny House movement caught my imagination, and I thought, 'It seems that the goal here is to build the smallest house,'" he told the Boston Globe. "It seemed like fertile territory that no one else had really covered."

And the toilet? It is a covered hole in the floor that leads to a drawer filled with kitty litter.
