Woman makes ‘scary’ discovery while exploring the basement of her Airbnb: ‘Y’all need to leave’

·2 min read

A TikTok user chronicled her “scary” experience staying at an Airbnb with an abandoned mall in its basement.

Strange discoveries like this are nothing new on TikTok. For months, users have been sharing their strangest findings — including oddly themed rooms in hotels, “creepy” staircases in homes for sale and “secret” doors in their apartments.

This latest discovery, from a user named Claire (@claire.scheulin), is on another scale entirely. In a video that now has nearly 6 million views, the TikToker showed her “sketchy” Airbnb.

“POV: Your Airbnb has an abandoned mall in the basement,” Claire wrote in the clip.

From there, Claire proceeded to give viewers a brief tour. According to her TikTok account, she was staying in a condo above a now-vacant mall. TikTokers promptly responded by calling the clip “scary” and like “something from a horror film.”

“I have chills,” one user wrote.

“I’m getting a bad feeling from that place, y’all need to leave,” another added

One user, named Josh, replied by claiming that he had also stayed at the condos. 

“Basically the place was just so run-down and sketchy,” Josh said in his clip.

Neither user gave the exact name of the place, but many commenters claimed it was likely a hotel in Hollywood, Fla. If so, then it seems possible that both Claire and Josh stayed above the Oceanwalk Mall.

The Oceanwalk Mall, now an abandoned “dead mall,” is located right on Hollywood Beach. Despite being permanently closed, the old mall sits beneath a group of still-open condos and rooms.
