This is my 5th attempt at writing a review because I kept going over the character limit! I just loved this place so much that I couldn't keep it concise. I stayed here for 3 nights with 10 of my mates in December 2015 and absolutely loved it! Rodolfo was more of a father figure than a host and although... More

I've stayed here at the beginning and end of my trip. Great place! Perfect place to meet people, nice rooms and beds, lovely owners and well located. This was the best start my trip could have had. When I'm coming back to cuba I will definitely come back to the hostel!

From our airport pickup (needed a bit of help and some local connections to exchange money) til we set off to tour the rest of the country, Rodolfo gave us helpful advice every step of the way. While the main hostel was more of a backpacking crowd, we had a room in a neighboring house with a pleasant family. Morning... More

Good location, reasonable hostel with nice breakfast. Good service with the guys who work here happy to give you suggestions and directions. Character of the owner takes some getting used to. You're not allowed to be at the hostel between 12pm and 4pm so they can clean, which is annoying. Only serious recommendation is don't buy cigars though the owner... More

Carlos and Rodolfo are awesomely cool guys! I was there for the winterbreak in December-January 2016. Basically I was one of the first Americans to arrive at Cuba before the opening up of the relations. It was a great experience. I hope a lot more Americans come here often!

This should be the ground zero for all backpackers. It's conveniently located, Rodolfo the host is amazing, and a wiki in all things Habana. Rooms are bright and airy, lovely sitting arrangments. Sit on the balcony and see the world go by or grab a bottle of nice rum for few dollars and engage your fellow backpackers in a discussion.... More
