Unfortunately I did not enjoy my stay at the Stables. To say the place in a bit of a need of a renovation is a big understatement. The place is in an appalling state and nothing seems to be working. Thin mattresses, uncomfortable pillows, ramshackle locker doors, leaking shower

It’s a small place, so the reception is not always open. It’s a bit run down and dirty, with two many long term residents owning the place. The flies did enjoy the atmosphere. In saying that, the room was clean and tidy, linen was good, although the bed a bit short. Toilets a

We were only staying for one night, and didn't really need much. We arrived, the staff was sitting outside and almost ignoring us at first, but then got up, gave us our keys and so on. We saw our room, and could instantly see that it was not one of the best hostels we had been

"Never choose this hostel!"
"Dorms are fine, not crowded, but very "lived in" by long-termers. You're likely to get a top bunk."
"All rooms seemed good - Courtyard room is nice for sitting outside"
"I thought there would be a TV in the room and the bathroom wouldn't be shared by the rest of the backpackers as I paid for a premium double room. The TV didn't bother me and the shower had good water pressure. I interpreted the website description differently."
"Why not take stay a few days if you are young and on a budget."
