A residence, often of the tenement or small apartment variety, which is very dirty and/or in disrepair, possibly also bug-infested and even dangerous. The most famous example of this is from the late eighties movie "Coming to America", with the first apartment that Eddie Murphy's character, the rich African prince Akeem from Zamunda, decides to take up in order to feel like one of the common people, much to the dismay of his best friend Semmi, who would prefer more familiar (luxurious) surroundings. Later, after Akeem comes back from work to find the apartment completely remodeled by Semmi, he decides he must move again, taking up the landlord's own apartment in exchange for the first one.
