“Great location, very welcoming!!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

After returning back to Havana after a lovely visit to Trinidad, the casa we stayed in on our first to nights was full, they made calls and then took us around block to hotel Peregrino. As soon as we walked in we just loved the place the walls are full of paintings and books and I just has so much character and deals really homely. After meeting Elsa and Julio we were then taken to our own apartment a few doors away which was not expected but a lovely surprise. The apartment had it own kitchen and was lovely, we even had our bags brought round by Julios son.
Having eaten out in Havana a few days prior and after finding the food nice but over priced we decided to eat at the casa. Please please please save you self the money and eat here, the food was absolutely outstanding so much food was laid out on the table and it was all delicious. It was such a shame that was our last night. It's also a great way to meet new people and chat about their Cuban experiences. We loved Cuba and its people like Elsa and Julio who enhance your experience. Thank you!

We were told to book a Hotel i Havana for the first day and then find Casa Particulares afterwards, so we did. My advise to people visisting Havana is to book a room at Hostal Peregrino. Havanva is a very noisy, confusing and chaotic city (especially if you don't speak any spanish). At Julio and Elsa's it is quite and calm and they are very helpfull. Because of the help from Julio and Elsa we had the opportunity of enjoying Havana.

Thak you for a very pleasant stay!

We arrived in Cuba not knowing what we wanted to do or see. Elsa and Julio made our time in Cuba easy by organising bus tickets/taxi drivers and accommodation in Trinidad. The dinner table is always full of delicious food and a very friendly vibe with other travellers from all over the world.
They have three locations but I recommend staying in their house 'Consulado'. Elsa runs a very well run Casa and hostel business without loosing the charm of staying in a family home.

I was travelling solo in Cuba and naturally I was a bit nervous but Hostal Peregrino made my trip unforgetable!

Elsa and Julio offer a wonderfully organised network of very safe and clean home stays accross Cuba, including their own beautiful house in Havana where I met many people. Some of these people stayed in the same place as me in other cities. This made for a really good opportunity to meet other travellers, especially helpful for solo travellers.

The location of the homes in Havana is very central, a 15 min walk from old Havana. I stayed with señor Miguel, who was a lovely and very helpful host, in a large and clean room. He lent me a guide book and a map, and offered Arabic coffee all day. He also gave me a lift one day and was overall very nice and helpful.

Elsa and Julio offer an excellent breakfast and dinner in their house. They are exceptionally helpful and can organise reliable transfer to and from the airport in old Cuban cars, your bus tickets from Havana to other destinations in Cuba, as well as your accommodation.

I stayed in Cenaida's home in Viñales, where I got looked after very well by her and her beautiful family. The meals were very good, especially the lobster and the fresh fruit. They helped me organise a day trip to the beach and horseback riding, both wonderful.

Cenaida booked the Peregrino home inTrinidad, which was the house of Belquis a beautiful colonial house that has a great roof terrace. One of the rooms also has a balcony. Breakfasts and dinners are good and filling!
Belquis helped me get information on day tours on the mountains and beach, as well as locations in the town.

Both homes were very clean, and both hosts very helpful in terms of assisting you with tours, day trips, and onward travel.

Overall, a great experience, they all made my trip to Cuba a very special experience.

A great place to start our trip in Cuba. Julio and Elsa were very helpful and we couldn't have asked for a better welcome. They kindly allowed us to store our packs at one of the hostels while we travelled around the rest of Cuba with just the necessities and arranged taxis and bus tickets for us. The rooms we stayed in were spotless and they had comfortable beds and hot water. They were a bit more expensive than other casas we stayed in in Cuba, but in my opinion were definitely worth the money! Thank you Julio and Elsa!

Room Tip: One of their three hostels has an accessible roof top - it's beautiful in the evenings.

I stayed at Julio y Elsa's initial place back in 2002 during my trip around the world and came back with my wife this month to visit Cuba again and guess what?
This country has changed, their business have been growing but the spirit and dedication for service is the same.

Thanks a lot for welcoming us again so gladly, it's good to feel almost at home!

Clean, calm, large rooms, perfectly positioned in Vieja Habana, And if you need a pick up at the airport, some good food, an internet connection or a free advice, they will make sure to treat you well. No excuse not go there!

We stayed at Hostal Peregrino two times during our trip around Cuba (beginning and end of trip) and we couldn't have wished for a better start. Julio and Elsa are a mine of knowledge about Havana and how to do things in Cuba and they are willing to answer any question or help you solve any problem you might have. The first two nights we stayed at the independent apartment which we highly recommend! The rest of the nights we stayed at a neighbours house and the room was ok but nothing special (but cheaper though), so go for the apartment if you can! Anyway, we think that Hostal Peregrino is an ideal place to help you get the best out of your stay in Havana. We would like to go back.

Room Tip: Independent apartment
