My girlfriend and myself recently stayed at this establishment during our stay in Cuba. We were that impressed we decided to return there for a second spell at the end of our trip. For me the biggest positive is the food. There was plenty of it and the standard was far superior than any of the restaurants I visited. I regret not eating there every evening! Also the breakfast provided in the morning is spectacular. Having stayed there twice I experienced two different rooms and both were spacious and clean. The lounge area is beautiful with comfortable chairs and I enjoyed many a cigar and glass of rum with Vicente. Alaina and Vicente are both wonderfully friendly people and as well as their staff are very approachable and would do anything for you. This place is perfect for anybody who like me, wants to experience the real Cuba and with the location of this hostel on the seafront and just around the corner from the main centre of Havana it is ideal. I plan to return in September and this is the place I will be staying!
