“Cuba Backpackers -A home from home”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

I stayed at Cuba Backpackers for 5 dys at the beginning of my trip,and for another 5 days at the end of my trip.I felt immediately at home,thanks to the welcome I received from both Maida and Alejandro.Maida the owner,is the perfect hostess.She looks after you so well,does her utmost to heip you in any way she can,and to provide you with any information you may need.One of the highlights of my stay there,was Maid's delicious cooking(breakfast and dinner)and the helpings she gave were so generous:.She is a great source of information in finding you good "casa particulars"in Cuba.Cuba Backpackers is ideal if you are travelling alone,as you get to meet other travellers,which is not so easy in a casa particular.I rate it very highly,and will return.Thanks Maida and Alejandro for a wonderful stay with you.

We have stayed in this hostel twice during our travel (at the beginning and at the end) and we really felt comfortable, cozy and welcomed here. Rooms are clean and the staff working in the hostel very helpful and friendly. Food is well prepeared and delicious, as well as generous. It also has good location in the centre.
We have to say special thanks and commendation to Alejandro, who is working in hostel, as he was of big help to us, specially during our first staying here. We became really good friends.
All in all, it's a really good hostel run by good-hearted people.
