What a nice place in the middle of paradise! The culinary delights are superb and when partaken with a hand made Mojitos, Pina Coladas & Daiquiris on the Terrace. Mine hosts are impeccable and understand the needs of visitors before a word of request is uttered. A highly recommended residence with perks second to none in Cuba. Aidita

I felt confident in their guidance as they helped me navigate around the city. I would recommend the Hostel Martin y Gisel to anyone traveling to Santiago,... More
