“The perfect casa.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

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.

In September 2012 we were on holidays in Beny’s house for 15 days.

It’s a very cozy neat house, 2 minutes walk from the beautiful beach. We had a nice room (they gave the room a clean every day) with it’s own shower & toilet. There was also a hair drier, air conditioner, safe, TV with DVD.

We would like to recommend people to stay at hostels than hotels in Cuba. From early morning till late night we could have tasty breakfasts, lunches & dinners at our convenience. It could be or in a large drawing-room or near the house in the open air. In distinction from all inclusive hotels, we could choose ourselves what we would like (from chicken to seafood and it was cooked specially for us in accordance with our tastes). It’s much more better for us than the food cooked in big kettles in crowded hotels & with wide samely variety of dishes.
The portions were superabundant & breakfast we dimidiate to breakfast & nuncheon, leave part of fruits & deserts for later because it was too much for us to eat it at the time.
Beny & all his family always helped us with any questions we had. It was always possible to get an important objective advice from any level of generation.

We want to say all Beny’s family great big thank-you for ingenuous smiles & homey home.
Thank you for that in spite of we were more than 8 000 km away from our Motherland, we considered ourselves at home

Between the location and the people of Benny´s place, it was undoubtedly an amazing experience! The food and hospitality was absolutely outrageous! I would come back myself and highly recommend it in a heartbeat!

My partner and I spent 2 weeks travelling in Cuba.
We arrived at Varadero Airport, and we stayed our first and last night at Beny's.
The hostel is amazing!
We felt very welcome; Beny and his family are very warm people. No question was too difficult, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, the food was just delicous!
The garden is very peacefull, and once you cross the street, you are at Varadero Beach.
During our time in Cuba, we also stayed a couple of night is a hotel resort, but it surely cannot win from Beny's!!

We went for a relaxing holiday and stayed at Benys Place for 10 days. We cannot say enough about Beny and his family. They are incredible. We would highly recommend staying here than in an all inclusive. You are located in the centre of Varadero and a short walking distance from the most beautiful beach. The place is absolutely spotless. The rooms are cleaned every day. The grounds are so well maintained. Beny and his family are always busy keeping the place tidy, and making sure everything is well attended to. Breakfast was always delicious , fresh and filling. We had dinner twice at Beny's and it was yummy!! Beny and his family go Above and beyond to help with anything you might need. Beny Jr. makes the Best Pina Colada we ever had. Beny and Beny jr. recommended some great restaurants, Casa Nostra on 54th st, Salsa Suarez on 31st, La Cas De Chef they were all excellent. Please try them out if you get a chance. Great seafood. We absolutely LOVED our stay at Benys and would recommend it hands down. You will not be sorry. At Benys you feel like family. They are truly genuine people. We hope to visit Beny and his family again.

I absolutely love how homely and clean this hostel is. Its walking distance from the most beautiful beach in the Cuba and has an outdoor shower. I recommend staying here! The family is hospitable, their food is great, and their rates are cheap. The beds are comfortable and there is a bathroom in every room.

I was traveling with a group, and we arranged to have lunch at Beny's. What an excellent decision it was. Beny and his family welcomed us as if we were family. They absolutely opened their home to us, prepared a delicious home cooked meal, and were just as warm and enchanting as they could be. Beny senior (dad) and Beny junior (son) were both there and both talkative, seeming to really enjoy feeding a houseful of people. When I return to Cuba, I plan to take a few days of R&R at Varadero Beach, and I plan to stay at Beny's. Relaxing and warm atmosphere.
