Open rebuke is better than hidden love.

Just straight up tell him. If he gets upset and doesn't want to be your friend anymore, that's his problem.

Ask him how long he plans on staying with your aunt and uncle and compromise a value for rent. Just avoid calling him out and being accusatory. If he's a nice guy he should understand. If you guys already decided on a set value for rent and he just isn't paying, then say that the room will be available to someone else. I'm assuming his situation is tough and he's not just an asshole. You could be like, "I want to help you out but my aunt and uncle have to pay the bills too. I don't want to make things awkward for anyone and I don't want to ruin our friendship. But we won't be able to keep you in the house if the current situation continues."

Honesty is (always) the best policy. Be straight up, be blunt. Not telling him is doing him more harm than good. If you're his friend, you'll do him this favor and be honest with him.

Yeah, you probably should be blunt. there's really no way to sugar coat something like this. you shouldn't stand by why he just takes up their space without paying for it, either.

There are some things that can't be said without hurting someone, but must be said nevertheless, so in this case it's best just to be honest about it to him.

You should be able to straight up that he is a mooch, and if he is a true friend he will understand and it won't hurt your friendship..

It seems most people have said the same thing i would. Be blunt, if he gets mad and starts bitching then eh... wasn't much of a nice guy.

Tell him he's not a guest anymore, he's a part of the household which means he has to put in his part in the household. Either have him pay rent or do chores

I used to have to live at a friends house because my parents left but in exchange for rent i cleaned a lot of the house and helped them with a lot of chores. Maybe he could do something similar?
