I had a single room, was very tiny with the bed taking up most of the space.

The good things: cable tv, location, there is a small area facing onto the street like a patio, but enclosed by iron grille, so you have the feeling of being outdoors but with safety.Security seems good, you have to be buzzed in. There's an ironing board, wifi and a computer that it seems the guests can use. There seemed to be a rooftop but I think it was for the room/rooms on the top floor

Bad things: The bathroom facilities were kind of scary. They were always dirty. They are shared with all on the floor, so two showers and toilets. I wore my slippers to shower but still felt grossed out. The a/c also could not be adjusted, the only thing I could do was ask for the remote to turn it off. There was a laundry room but only for the maid to wash sheets.
All in all, I would recommend to budget travellers and those not spending much time in their room or the guesthouse.

The La Calypso Guest House (868-622-4077) 46 French Street in Woodbrook neighborhood, Port of Spain, is located in an area which appears safe, about a block from a grocery store, and three blocks from Ariapita street which has restaurants and food vendors of all prices and types, and several popular, safe bars. The rooms are spartan, but clean, a little cramped, with a firm enough mattress, decent hot water, a little refrigerator, cable TV and some rooms have AC. There are cheaper rooms with shared bath. I paid $51 per night. There is free internet, but often a line for it, and a small kitchen for use. No longer any jacuzzi as guides advertise. There are no real commons areas, and the entrance is frightening–with a buzz in system into a first courtyard, and then a second buzz required to get into the main area. The hotel clerk is hidden behind an opaque bullet proof glass like a bank. Little literature about local tourism at all. No information about tours around the island.
