Casa Iraida was a good hostel after. Even limited in services and equipment but they offered amazing price with extensive care.Their private room was good and clean, too. Somehow I felt that they could really introduce us the Cuban life.

Then, without even say "please" or "sorry" (still don't know why) he say "You have to go". I even couldn't wait... More
