    Friendly staff, clean, comfortable, very central. Rooms were tidy and clean. Staff helped us plan our days and made sure we were comfortable with where were were going. Would really recommend for student groups as there was a great atmosphere there and so affordable.

    No. The rooms are not segregated. Men and women slept in the same rooms. However, if you are with a large enough group there are many rooms and you could probably ask to be placed in your own room.
