A HOMELESS couple living on up to $226 a day have one of Melbourne’s best addresses — and it doesn’t cost them a cent.

Shane Snowden, 36, and girlfriend Bianca Priest, 22, live in a Yarra River-fronted property just a stone’s throw from Crown casino.

An apartment at nearby Freshwater Place currently rents for about $850 per week.

But their triangular Southbank “studio” beneath the Sandridge Bridge costs nothing.

It boasts a double bed on bread crates, a camp cooktop and curtains, and taps power from a nearby mains box for a bedside lamp and a $50 laptop to play DVDs.

A bicycle padlock on the gate offers some sense of security at night.
