HI Trinity Skerwink Hostel
Reviewed 16 July 2012

Probably the best hostel I have stayed at - I had a fantastic experience - the hostel is full of energy and fun! Breakfast is included - which is fantastic! The views are great - you can see whales from one of the Canada's best trails located within a couple of mins walk; I even saw a moose from the hostels porch!

The hostel itself is very well maintained, extremely clean and has a great ambiance and vibe. And, they really look after their guests!

The towns of Trinity and Bonavista are a short drive away - and are great places to visit. There are a number of really good places to eat in the surrounding areas as well!

All in all, a fantastic trip and one of the best experiences ever! Highly recommended to anyone who is interested.

Being new to hostelling at 53 years of age, I was thrilled to find a place like this. Not only clean and safe but very comfortable with staff that is warm, welcoming, friendly and fun. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meals and coffee and tea are complimentary. There are books and games on the shelves and WIFI if you need to stay connected. There's great hiking in the area and the shuttle service between Bonavista and St. John's will also stop here.

The hostel is brand new and the staff is enthusiastic, welcoming and very friendly. The rooms are spacious, clean and it feels like a home away from home. There is a fully equipped kitchen and the living room has comfortable couches, boardgames and a good book selection. The hostel is close to the Skerwink Trail, but also to Trinity. Just a lovely little charming town and the hostel fits perfectly into that scenery.One of the best places I ever stayed!

This newly opened hostel has excellent facilities very suitable for budget travel. The staff are warm, helpful and friendly and there is a comfortable large sitting area, an excellent kitchen and some 'en suite' and double bedded rooms.
It is about 100 yards from the start of the Skerwink trail which is very pleasant coastal trail of 5km well maintained by volunteers and with spectacular views of the cliffs and sea stacks.

Room Tip: We had a look at all the rooms and all seemed clean and comfortable-Some further finishing work is i...
