UNDISCLOSED LOCATION, Poland – While Polish prosecutors are still investigating those involved in running a CIA black site in the country’s forest, the secret prison itself is getting rave reviews from the travel site Airbnb.
Airbnb aims to be “trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world.” The site’s users have fallen in love with this hidden Polish “gem,” where the CIA once used to waterboard 9/11 suspects.
Katherine Webb, a Brooklyn resident and frequent traveler who is “fed up with the corporate inauthentic travel experience,” said her stay at the secret jail was one of the best vacations she has ever had.
“I mean really, you could stay at some mainstream, sterile Marriott with a bunch of businessman,” Webb explained, “or you could stay in a concrete pit with tons of local charm in the middle of the Polish wilderness. It seems like a no-brainer.”
Many travelers said that the fact that the facility was set up with 15 million dollars of CIA cash paid of to Polish intelligence gave the place “more character.” Airbnb users also noted how they preferred the concrete bunker of a lobby to the sanitized blandness often found at chain hotels.
While Airbnb boasts many unique properties, including more than 600 castles, a representative for the website admitted that this represents their first formerly off-the-books detention and interrogation center.
“Due to the rave reviews this property is receiving,” a company spokesperson said, “we are in serious negations with the U.S. government in an attempt to rent out rooms at Guantanamo Bay.. ”
