    Wow....very interesting. So do you get penalised for a late night or do they just look at you like dirt? You can say no to people sharing your room right? and just out of interest...it's not just indian people there right? any chinese or european? Any good points =p, because it's my girlfriend who is gonna be staying there lol.
