    I couldn't even stay there. The girl's dorm was tiny, and with no window, there was no circulation, so it was very stuffy and close. My bunk would have been a top one, less than a foot from the overhead fan, which had to be on at all times because of the closeness and heat. The other option I had was to stay in another top bunk directly under the AC, which the girls had elected not to use because it made the room too cold. To their credit, they cheerfully gave me my money back.
