In the beginning of March we stayed in hostal Amatista for 3 nights. The casa is in a great location, less than a 5 minute walk from Plaza Mayor's nightlife but sufficiently far enough away not to hear any noise even when sitting outside on the beautiful roof terrace enjoying a piña coladas and mojitos.The big house still breathes the...

Hiraida and Jose makes you feel at home at once . Our daughters had been there before and enjoyed the stay as much as we did. The dinner they cooked for us was the best we got in Cuba . A wonderful place for relaxing after the sightseeing is the terrace or the patio. The best mojitos we ever had... More

I can honestly say hostel Amatista was my most favourite memorable place i stayed throughout my stay in Cuba. They were fantastic hosts who really made you feel that their home was also your's too. One of my highlights was hearing them sing in the kitchen whilst they prepared our food, just bliss! Highly recommend this place.

In the beginning of August we stayed in hostal Amatista for two nights, being with the four of us (two kids) in two very elegant and big rooms, each with its own bathroom. The big house still breathes the old colonial atmosphere. Besides two guest rooms and their private rooms, it consists of a big living room, two patios, a... More

We spent 2 nights here in September. The casa is in a great location, less than a 5 minute walk from Plaza Mayor's nightlife but sufficiently far enough away not to hear any noise even when sitting outside on the beautiful roof terrace enjoying a piña colada. The casa is spotlessly clean in all areas. The rooms provide plenty of... More

We stayed two nights in July. The beds were relatively comfy, the shower and bathroom pretty basic with a plastic folding dividing door. Casas are generally quite basic though - so you may need to adjust your expectations. It's a nice chintzy family home with lots of family photos, ornaments etc - felt very authentic. The family were lovely and... More

Initially we wanted to stay for 2 nights, but we ended up staying for 4 nights! Jose and Hiraida are so nice, caring and entertaining. They even surprised us with a nice spontaneous salsa performance one evening. Breakfast and dinner (lobster) were delicious, not to mention the Mojito !!! Our room was clean, pretty big and very nice. Nice terrace... More

Everything was good once we arrived at the casa. jose and Hiraida provided us with a tranquil space to rest and relax in a great location in historical Trinidad. just watch out for people who will lie and hassle and try to rip you off when you first arrive into the town.

We booked 2 rooms in this hostel form one night only. It's a very lovely hostel, the rooms were very spacious, clean and every where in the house there are flowers, plants, there is a beautiful terrace, where you can learn to dance salsa. If we knew it was so good, we would stay here longer ! Hiraida and José... More

I had the most enjoyable stay in Trinidad thanks to Hiraida and Jose who are excellent hosts. The house is beautiful with warm atmosphere and the family friendly and welcoming. I would recommed a visit just to meet lovely Hiraida and Jose.
