The hostel was fantastic and completely fitted in with my expectation of Trinidad.
Clara Marina's house is a beautiful colonial home, handed down to her through generations of her family. The house is full of musical instruments including two antique pianos belonging to Fefa and Reyes (who the hostel was named after), plus many very very old books belonging to Fefa's father.
The place is really stunning and a great size. Behind the colonial front, they have a really peaceful and charming garden, with calming birds in the background.
Clara Marina has recently redecorated the guest bedroom too and so we had a very lovely place to sleep, spacious, calm and with AC. The room looks out onto the garden.
Clara Marina was the perfect host. Very caring and wanting to ensure I loved the town of her birth.
It really was a great place to spend our time. It is in the centre of Trinidad but quiet. Very close to the music, the Steps and Casa de la Musica.
I really couldn't imagine a more perfect place to stay than this magical house.
