Beny's House would have to rank as one of my favorite hostels i have stayed at around the world. I never usually leave feedback, because i choose budget accommodation and therefore don't expect very high standards. This hostel demands i break with tradition. The hostel is as clean as could possibly be, the garden is beautiful, our private fridge was stocked with beers and water when we arrived, the hostel is 30 seconds from a quiet stretch of the beach. However this is nothing compared to the service provided by the hostel owner. Beny is the perfect host who treats you like you are a guest in his home. Possibly the only Cuban we met who wasn't constantly trying to extract money from you. His private front door is always open for you and i lost count how many times he went out of his way to help us with insect spray, after sun, beach chairs, taxis, medication, currency issues, history and politics etc etc. We found Cuban restaurant food generally very overpriced and average, so were very happy when Beny offered breakfast and dinner whenever we wanted. It was probably the best food we had on the island and was just simple, fresh and very reasonably priced. A real Cuban treat compared to the bland generic hotels in the rest of the town. Highly recommend and would definitely return.
