The apartment is lovely with one bedroom with ensuite on the ground floor and 2 bedrooms upstairs with a shared bathroom. The location is excellent, overlooking the Plaza and right above what must be one of the liveliest bars in Cuba. However, I guess we were unlucky when we stayed there in that there was no hot water when we...

This place was awesome! Daniel and Maria run this place, and they are fabulous. Daniel speaks enough English to make anything happen for you that you need. He served us so well, found cheap ways for us to do everything, and was so much fun to be around. Perfect location in Old Havanna, clean, good hot water, and the only...

Room overlooking the square with balcony. Clean & comfortable with breakfast in the room! Hosts had no English but this was no problem - very friendly. The restaurant on the corner next to the beer factory did great food. The dogs were a bit noisy in the square at night but that's Cuba!

Brilliant location, great host, wonderful breakfast with lovely view over the square each morning. Best towels in all of the casa's and hotels we stayed in. From talking to other traveller's who were staying in hotels it seems our room was the best.

Started our trip here - I'll get this out the way first: the location is FANTASTIC and a really nice way to start the trip. Not too difficult to find and sitting on the balcony with a beer whilst listening to the music from the cafes next door is a wonderful way to be introduced to Havana. Daniel is very...

Great location in old Havana. Has air con in bedrooms which was vitally important due to heat. Plumbing in Cuba has a mind of its own, you quickly learn to deal with it. Beautiful apartments in old palace house. Manager Daniel was a character. House keeper Maria would come in each day and prepare breakie, lovely woman! Downside is there...

We loved the location on the plaza with the music coming up from the cafes. (It doesn't go late so just sit back and enjoy it). Clean, comfortable and friendly. Daniel is very helpful and Maria will make you breakfast for 5CUC. Stayed a week and really loved the place. Make sure to spend some time on the balcony.

I stayed here for 3 nights. The hostel is well located. The hosts are lovely. Breakfast costs $5 CUC - fruit, coffee and eggs. The rooms were away from the street - quiet and air conditioned. I recommend this hostel to everyone.
