And yet, in other words it would be the same as "unadorned/bare/austere plain/economical/simple" single room; that is, a room with no frills.

A grammar aside point here, we should use lower case "s" in "spartan", unless we are talking about the city culture, ways, mores etc. If we are talking about the austerity, the life style or the things of the short of money.

He said he led a "spartan life" at school to save money. Besides spending about 10 hours a week on a federally subsidized campus job, he is always looking for other jobs or studies that pay participants.

... With three other GIs who had deserted.

Yeah, that´s right, Zum!

Long ago (at the time of WWI and WWII), the Army and Air Force would standardize virtually all of their equipament, even combs, brush, helmets, uniforms were all standard issue (per government standards - so government issues). From equipment to the draft and then men doing military service was just a awhile away.
The soldiers themselves making the expression GI synonym with the military men themselves would be just a matter of time...
The general infantry of the forces came to be known as GI Joe, and were made into toys, and even collectibles sets (saleable) for children.
Just a bit of history.
