The hostel is really well located, at the intersection of two of the main avenues of Vedado which, in fact, is a very nice neighborhood. The area where the hostel is settled is served by the different modals of transportation available in Havana, including shared taxis and buses, on which you can easily reach Old Havana in about 20 minutes and for just a few cents of CUC. Luis (the hostel’s owner) is attentive and, although not living in the building, is always on hand to assist the guests on anything they need. Luis's nephew and Julia, who work at the house, are also extremely attentive and helpful. I’ve stayed in two different rooms in the hostel. Both are spacious, exactly like the pictures, have good privacy, their aircons worked well and the bed and shower were reasonable. The cost benefit was very good so much that I chose staying there again during my second visit to Havana.

I stayed at Hostal Corazon for a month and I always felt secure and comfortable! Pros - Great service. Staff was readily available for help. Julia was like my house mom and I will definitely miss her. - Clean. Staff is always cleaning the house and your room is always cleaned every 3 days. - Good location to bars/restaurants or to take taxi collectivo to Old Havana. Cons - Noisy because right next to big streets - No dinner service. I was disappointed to hear there was no dinner service upon arrival because the website stated so. Their website is outdated so before you expect any service listed on the website make sure to confirm with Luis beforehand.

Staying with Luiz and his family was the single best thing we did to have a great experience in Cuba because they were our introduction to the island. Someone was right there to meet us. Luiz showed us around the neighborhood once we got settled and helped us get CUC converted. It doesn't matter what different needs your trip has, I'm confident Luiz will help you. We took breakfast with Luiz, Yessy, Julia and with new acquaintances from Brazil, Argentina, Czechoslovakia. The entire week we were there, there were other guests to talk with. Breakfast opened the door for so much learning about each other, the cultures and catching up about the day before. The other thing we enjoyed about Hostal Vedado is coming back tired, sitting in the rocking chair and talking to Julia or watching TV or one day, dancing all together in the living room and laughing. Vedado is a distance from Old Havana. You have to consider transportation - bus, taxi, walking. We walked alot. I recommend this to staying in the more touristy area because it's much more quiet to come 'home' to and settled and still plenty to do. Business dealings are fair and straightforward. This is a top casa particular in Vedado in my book!

This place is absolutely perfect. Do not hesitate to book it :) You'll be hard pressed to find a nicer and friendlier home in the City. Luis and his family took us in with open arms and took really good care of us. They were so very kind and offered assistance wherever possible. It's a great location with easy access to all of the tourist spots. A perfect view from the balcony, as you can see from the pictures. If I'm in Havana again we'll definitely hope to stay here again. Muchas gracias mis Amigos! :) Steve & Adriana

Very nice and clean, big apartment with nice rooms and a beautiful view from the balcony. There are some good restaurants and cafes close by. Also the Havana Libre is in walking distance where you can get access to Wi-Fi. We walked from the apartment along the Malecon to Havana Vieja in about 30 min. Awesome location! Luis is very attentive in making it a pleasant stay, from recommendations where to eat, what to see and even arranging a guided tour. They serve breakfast and you can meet people from all over the world, while drinking your Cuban Cafe. I use his place every time when in Havana. Very recommended.

The best thing about this casa is the location. Also very nice is the view from the common balcony. The owner helped me arrange an airport transfer for 25 CUC (the car was not very great though, as it was an old Fiat with no A/C; when leaving Havana I got a transfer with a classic car for the same price). At the petrol station near the apartment building is a small shop where you can buy water (not much else) and Cinema Yara and the Habana Libre hotel are 10 min away by walking. I also interacted with a young guy who took care of the house while Luis was on holiday and he was very nice and recommended to visit Fabrica de Arte Cubano which was the best experience I had in Cuba.

Very cozy place to stay in the middle of everything in Vedado - restaurantes, cafe, banks, a delicatessen at Habana Libre Hotel and a square. If I was supposed to be back in Havana for a second time, definitively I would be in Hostel Vedado.

The location is very good, a short walk from good jazz place for the night: La zorra y el Cuervo. Also close to Hotel Nacional, Coppelia and Malecon. It's also possible to walk to Habana Vieja in a 30 minutes walk, but the taxis are also really cheap. You can find good options of cheap restaurants and drinks close. The room was very clean and also safe. Luis and his family are nice and always ready to give you good suggestions of what to do/see. He also has the option of transfer from/to airport. The breakfast is simple but good. We would definitely stay there again.
