Closest thing to a hostel in Cuba. Great for meeting other people. I stayed there my first night and last few days whilst in Havana. They are really nice and helpfull and Leo makes a nice Mojito in the rooftop bar!
Excellent staff, good location, nice terrace with cocktails, decent rooms
One of the few Hostel style Casa Particulares so a good place to meet other travelers. In Centro not the Old Town which means a little walk but less hassling.
Absolutely brilliant. Great place to start a trip round Cuba. The location is perfect. You're away from the real tourist part of Havana yet still within easy walking distance.
The staff are excellent - very friendly and helpful. Rolandos is the perfect place to meet people.
We were very well received, excellent service, clean environment. Highlight all information that the owner of the hostel we went to town on so we could have a great stay. Breakfast and dinner with compatible prices.
