The incredible clip shows a man named Carlos showing a cameraman around his mini abode, located next to the train tracks of a station in New York City.

Entrance to the cosy bunker means dropping down through a manhole, covered by a large piece of plywood.

Once inside, Carlos proceeds to show off his basic yet remarkable home – complete with electricity.

“[When I first arrived] I didn’t like it, it was too dirty. I had to paint it,” Carlos explained.

“I had to do a little janitorial work.

“The noise of the train doesn’t bother me, I just close the door and it is fine.”

Among Carlos’ possessions inside the miniature home are a radio, a coffee machine, a gas cooker – and even a fridge.

More than 1.6 million people have seen the clip since it was uploaded to YouTube in 2010, although the footage has recently been circulating again on social media site Reddit.

“How the hell did he get a fridge down there? And why is it better stocked than mine!” said one viewer.

Another comment read: “It has always been a dream of mine to live in a secret place – although I think this might be a little cramped for my taste.”
