I used Roomster for a couple of weeks, and came across very few legitimate ads. Received about 10 dms daily from seemingly fake users. The authentic places were mostly sponsored by outside groups that I'm sure also advertise on other sites. With the price, I really don't see the benefit of this website. The money isn't going into improving the experience.

Tip for consumers:
I don't recommend for anyone.

Products used:
This is a housing market / roommate service. I used it for over a week, sending a few messages and looking for roommates in the LA area. It was a poor experience. I received many generic messages from people who were looking for a tenant that did not align with my profile. Many messages were also spam. I reached out to support to try to get some profile info changed, but they never helped with anything despite conversation and claiming that they were working on it. The cost is quite high - about $10 / week. I'm sure that money is going into someone's pockets and none is being used to improve the actual website.
