You might be able to visit one, something called jailhouse tours from what I see on Google.
I think a lot of prisoners are angry for their situation and this can make living uncomfortable.
I understand they have tv's in their cells, books from a library, gym sessions, visits quite often.
Most convicted prisoners are given jobs like cooking and cleaning.
Statistically most of the time is spent in a small room with no window just ventilation and day light.

Category D = open-prisons, are much more relaxed and these are for people who are doing time for non-violent and low-level crimes. This is where ypu'd expect to see prisoners in education, watching TV or playing video games.
Category C = closed-prisons (with low risk of trying to escape), are again much more relaxed and usually reserved for first-time offenders. These prisons are much more focused on rehabilitation because people in these prisons serve a term of no more than five years. Again, there will be much more luxuries in these prisons like TVs and radios.
Category B = closed-prisons (with medium risk of trying to escape). These are reserved for people who are serial offenders, or first time offenders of a serious crime like attempted murder or sex offenses. Luxuries will rewarded to inmates if they do work around the prison and for good behaviour.
Category A = closed-prisons (with high risk of trying to escape). Typically reserved for the most dangerous people like mass murderers, terrorists or repeated child sex offenders. Like category B prisons, luxuries are earned by doing work around the prison and good behaviour, but inmates are not given nearly as much freedom.
