We had booked a room via hostelbookers as early as July 2012 for 4 nights from Jan. 28 till Feb. 1, 2013. When we arrived by taxi from the airport, Lizsth was a little embarrassed and said that he had cancelled all bookings in regard to the carnival when room prices sky-rocket. He had forgotten to cancel ours, however. Both Lizsth and his amiable mother were very devoted to accommodate us and allocated us the „Pink Room“ at a reduced rate. This room was exactly as the name says: Pink in every respect, even the aged fridge which was so cold that the bottled water froze! There was efficient A/C and a kitchenette. Lizsth brought us a two flame gas stove on a trolley (pink) with a gas bottle when we asked for it. In addition to a double bed, there was also a single bed which came handy as a baggage rest, plus a sizeable table and three chairs. A number of flower-pots, some hanging from the ceiling, with artificial flowers gave the room a cosy ambiance. The bathroom was very small but nice and in good working order. Wifi internet worked o.k. There were tables and chairs in the alley in front of our room. Some of the other rooms we saw were not so nice as the Pink Room, however. Lizsth went out of his way organizing a taxi at a reasonable price for a day trip to Pitch Lake, the Hindu temples, and the Caroni Swamp and also for the transfer to Blanchisseuse. The Little Inn is a friendly hostel, ideally situated but still quiet at night. There are restaurants in the vicinity, among them a very cheap and excellent Chinese one, two small shops in the same street and an IGA supermarket in 5-10 minutes walking distance.
