Needs to be noted that there is a campsite right behind the hostel so quite a lot of noise and foot traffic. Kitchen and bathroom not really very clean although shower was warm. No seating or common area just outside. Foyer used as bedroom. Staff were friendly but not particularly helpful. The shower runs cold if used with lighting as electricity cuts out, rooms and doors all open and never locked although there are lockers. No internet although known previously. Room of 6 and smaller not 12.

Really friendly staff and a great location with beautiful buildings for each dorm. The breakfast was superb and as we were there during bad weather the facilities in the main building were great with a TV and DVDs to watch when the rain was too much. Dorms cleaned every day and linen clean. Only tiny issue was coldish showers but more than made up for by everything else. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in Trindade or indeed in Paraty as very close by bus.

Security is poor - front door open all day and no locks on rooms. Items stolen from the room and lockers provided hardly locked were often inaccessible. 16 man room very cramped and therefore remained unclean for the whole week. Nowhere to hang clothes damp from rain so musty smell in rooms. Location superb right in the middle of town and wifi very good. Kitchen good although fridges too small for so many. Lots of staff but sitting around not doing anything and talking in our rooms at night.
