Co-living solution for 'Generation Rent'?

A new building complex in north London is offering a different kind of accommodation aimed at millennials, (people born around the beginning of the 1990s,) mixing small private space with quirky shared spaces.

'The Collective' has 550 small bedrooms and communal areas that include a spa, restaurant, games room, library and roof-top with plastic igloos - with most bills included in the rental price.

Is this co-living a good deal, or just another way to exploit young Londoners in the property market?

Video journalist Dougal Shaw went along for a tour of the building, which has just welcomed its first inhabitants.
