Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This place is listed under a bunch of different names. One of them is Hostal Cristina y Dayami. We never saw or heard (of) Cristina. They are completely misrepresenting this place: 1. It's not smoke free. Dayami and her son smoke all the time. 2. You can't locked the door to the only bathroom, which is shared with everyone in the house. (It would be an easy fix) 3. It's on the 3rd floor of a run-down dingy apartment building. Unless your phone works in Cuba, you can't even get in. There's no sign, no doorbell, front gate is locked. A friendly neighbor helped us by calling them; but even he had to call two different numbers before they even answered. 4. It is extremely loud, all the time. They claim it's just from the street, but also Dayami, the man, and the son are calling loudly to each other late at night, and have the TV going so that you hear it in the room. You hear every person that uses the bathroom, which is practically next to your bed. And all the clatter from the kitchen late at night or early in the morning. 5. The teenage son seems to be playing video games and smoking all day long in the living room, with an endless stream of teenage visitors from girls early in the morning (presumably from overnight) to buddy friends the rest of the time. 6. If you think you're staying with two ladies, you are not. There's Dayami, her son and all his friends, and some unidentified man late at night. I have spent two months all over Cuba and stayed only at private homes, never hotels. I know Cuban houses are simple. However, I have never stayed at a casa/hostal as bad as this. This place should not be allowed to be posted for rent on any platform. Do not stay here.

The flat is in an excellent location - it is walking distance from everywhere in Havana Vieja. Our host was lovely. The breakfast she made us was delicious and she organised our transport to Trinidad. I would definitely stay here again!

Located in the heart of la Habana Vieja , easy to go to nice places just by walking (restaurants /attractions/music, etc) .. and well Doña Cristina is a great host she has some options if you have no plan or dont know how to get to places/maps , etc..she helped us a lot during our stay. The room was very clean wih air conditioner, and a fan and some nice cuban decoration ,we really enjoyed our stay. We had a great time with her , if someday we come back to la Habana for sure we´ll stay with her and you should too, totally recommended !!

La habitación muy cómoda y la familia muy amable. Excelente ubicación! La Sra. nos ayudo en conseguir taxis, ubicarnos etc. Muy recomendable! La única contra es que la contratamos con baño privado y no tiene baño privado, se comparte con el resto de la casa.

17 euros à 5-10 minutes à pied du centre de la vieille ville, c'est déjà quelque chose.. Mais ajoutez à cela le sourire de notre hôtesse et ses conseils (en espagnol ou en anglais..) pour visiter la ville et restaurer.. et là cela vaut les 5 etoiles.. Aprè pour 17 euros vous êtes à Cuba pour de vrai..Ca peu manquer d'eau chaude, la rue peu être bruyante , etc etc... Mais voilà nous sommes tombé sous le charme su sourire de notre hôtesse.

房东太太很好,非常乐于助人 也很善于交流。可以帮助叫车去机场,房间不是很大但是干净整洁。 位置也很好,离开老城的各种景点走路也就十分钟,尤其是晚上可以去老广场的小酒吧和鸡尾酒,气氛非常好,离开码头特别近,可以方便去对岸玩城堡。大家喜欢哈瓦那老城区的一定会喜欢住在这里,很有当年的感觉。 房东太太会英语,邮件里面可以直接交流不用担心语言问题,除了晚上路上有点噪音外都很不错的一个住宿。关键价格也很优惠的。
