The hostel is 10 minutes walking from old Havana. The owner is very nice and the stuff is very helpful. They offered us free coffee and we could use their kitchen. The breakfast was so good with fresh fruits and fresh juice. We spent their only one night and will definitely come back there if we come back to havana.

This hostel casa is rare in Havana but a great find. Rodolfo was very hospitable and the accommodation was clean, well located and a great place to meet fellow travellers. Highly recommend! Havana in general is a lively place from early morning to late night so if you're a light sleeper take ear plugs! The casa is approximately 10-12 mins...

Their hostility is really perfect, they are...

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...
