The owner Magnolia is very nice, the hostel is located in a good area, where is easy to take transportation to different places of the city. Actually is a good service according to the price. They offer breakfast and laundry service. The only problem is when the hostel is totally full coz there is only one bathroom

The best Hostel to start or end your Holiday. There are 2 big rooms with 4 and 6 beds and a small room for 1/2 Persons. You will always find somebody showing the next bank or help you with other problems. We've been there in the beginning and the end of our journey. The owner are the most hospitallty people I've visitd in one month in Cuba. And even they don't speak any english they will find a way to communicate with you. (there are always a lot of guests speaking english and spanish)... The hostel is really good located to see whole Habana. Its beetween Vedado and Centre, next to the beautiful hamel street with it's art and music. I recommend this to everybody!

I couldn't recommend this hostel enough. Wilfredo and Magnolia are genuine, honest people who will give you priceless tips for your stay in Cuba. Breakfast and dinner are more than reasonably priced and the hosts are lovely. Look no further and stay here but, please, be considerate and respectful as if you were at your parents', keep the noise down and leave the party out. -Lo he puesto en inglés para mayor difusión. Espero poder escribirles pronto, mandarles una foto y corresponderles por su desinteresada hostpitalidad. Un abrazo fortísimo y muchos besos- Iñaki
