“Home from home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013 via mobile

We originally booked for two nights & ended up staying here for four nights! The hostel is a lovely place & the location is perfect! The communal areas are great and there is plenty to keep you occupied if you want to spend time here. (Ping pong table, lounge area, BBQ, hammocks etc).
The owners are very friendly and helpful, we went on many walks with their help and they also lent us their snorkelling gear on one of the days. They also booked our bus ticket to Rio on their computer & as we left early they made breakfast available earlier for us!
The breakfast is great - Homemade cake freshly baked which was delicious! Fresh bread and fruit, coffee and fruit juices!
*The only slight problem we felt was that the room wasn't cleaned once whilst we were there (after beach days sand gets everywhere!) & the shower in our ensuite room stopped working after the first day, we reported it to them & were told it was fixed. It wasn't. We had to use a shower in another room (not a big deal, but we had paid for an private ensuite).
We would highly recommend this place to other travels and would 100% stay here in the future.

The area of Trindade is great for rest and relaxation. The beaches are gorgeous, the people are very kind and friendly & local restaurants are brilliant - we had excellent service and lovely food every night!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013

We had a beautiful stay in Samblumba, one of the best hostels in Trindade, next to some of the best beaches in the world! Matias and Juan were great and really amazing. Their hospitality made us feel like we were at home. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed and they were both indefatigable in the support that they gave us. We loved our ride with Matias through a wonderful trail route which led us to a dreamy beach called praia do Sono. The breakfasts are great and I enjoyed the various matches we played at the ping pong table which are a neat way to bring guests to socialize and to meet new people.
I really recommend Samblumba and I hope I can come one more time!!

Beautiful beaches, hiking, surfing, acoustic music at the beach in the afternoon and in the eve beach partys, very laid back atmosphere. The hostel is a relax place to stay. The guys who running this hostel make you feel like home! We had a great BBQ. Definitely recommended you to go there! Have fun and feel like you are in paradise. Take day trips to Paraty.

Room Tip: If you want to go Trindade, take the bus in Paraty at the bus terminal. Its just 3,70 real :) Check...
