“Pretty nice hostel in Havana”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I stayed there one night before my flight to Europe. Conditions are good as the Cuban conditions. Rooms are pretty clean. Building is very nice and good looked from street. Noise from cars moving on ther street could disturb you during the night. For me it's not problem. I think that price corresponds to the conditions

This casa has some very nice rooms with high celling and furniture dating from the beginning of the Century! It is perfectly located in the heart of La Habana Vieja where the main monuments are located.
The owner Gustavo is really friendly as all the staff. This is the second time I'm going there and you do feel relax in this place (the rooftop terrace is amazing).
For those of you who have never been in La Havana Vieja, it can be noisy, so take your ear plugs if you're sensitive with the noise. For me this is just part of the charm: some nice street lives noises making you feel a century ago!
Oh last thing regarding the comments I read: there is no way the staff member could have robbed you guys: just think about what you’re saying... Would you steal money on your working place? Business is good, staff remains the same, so why risking to get trouble?
If you knew what Cuban risk from police for stilling from a tourist, you wouldn’t even think about it! So you can just come here with your eyes shut! From all the countries I’ve been in Latin America (nearly all), Cuba Is the safest.

An excellent choice in the heart of the old city. Impeccably run with balconies and a private roof garden for that private escape / sunbathing! Genuine and trustworthy hosts. Book in advance though as only 3 rooms!

Room Tip: there's a double room up a tight spiral staircase on the roof accessed through the roof top gard...

We stayed one night (booked with Gustavo via email) and we were lucky enough to get the room on the roof terrace with private bathroom. The room was nice and clean, but the best part was the really nice and green terrace all to ourselves: very colorful, a lot of plants, and two lounges to relax in the shade.
The location is unbeatable, just one block from Plaza Vieja (on the nice and safer side). Gustavo & all were very nice and friendly, breakfast was good and we had no problems at all.
We didn't experience what the other travellers mentioned in their review about them being after the money: we were charged for what we had, nobody asked for more money.
We really loved the place - we were back in Havana a week later and if we didn't already have a reservation for another Casa we would have definitely come back here!
Warning: you may fall in love with their little puppy Lentilla! :)

We made a reservation by email and as the room with private bathroom on the roof was taken, we took the two rooms ons the 1st floor with the bathroom. We stayed 3 nights. The rooms are ok, and clean but we still had a lack of privacy as you need to cross the hall where other people take breakfast to take your shower. As there is a pizzeria for local people just below in the street, nights are not really silent and the rooms are not isolated.
But all together rooms are really ok. But there is one important issue: We didn't see Gustavo and the the employees are clearly after money. As far as we are concerned, nothing very bad, just asking us money for drinks we didn't take out of the fridge... and not the right amount of change. But they did it right at the very last moment, when you don't have time to react anymore...
The 2 people that stayed in the room on the roof told us that money disappeared out of their safety box. Not much, but they told us they were sure.
So better pay attention when you decide to stay there.

Room Tip: More privacy on the roof room.

We stayed three days and were mostly happy. The room was comfortable and clean, but there was a lot of street noise. The proprietress was helpful and friendly, but was clearly hitting on us for money, as she couldn't get food for her cats. Her brother was less helpful and friendly and had friends sitting around smoking right outside our room. The room had no bathroom but it was right across the hall. There are better choices.
