The number of toilets and outlets per guest is unacceptable. Although none of my stuff got stolen I didn't feel as though any of my things were secure or safe. Also, you are the only hostel I have EVER been to that doesn't have a blow dryer at the front desk that guest can borrow. I only stayed at this hostel because it was the only hostel in town that was not fully booked. I do not plan on staying at Stable Lodges again.

there was only one working stove for the kitchen and no oven. the inside of the 3 small refigerators were stinky and covered in i dont know what. the cushions on the the crammed seating was stained and torn and covered in a layer of dirt/dust (like everything in the common area). the quiet time was not enforced so i was kept up until at least 2 am both nights. AND i was forced to pay 35% for the night i cancelled more than 48 hours before, even tho this was not disclosed on Hostelworld site.
