The Hostal stands in a 1921 building in Old Havana with high ceilings and beautiful light. Decorated with a warm and modern style, where art and paintings from Cuban artists can be appreciated alongside the simplicity of our Cuban traditions.

The apartment has two other guest rooms, so you can expect to share the common areas with other guests and the hostess, it's a great way to meet friends during your trip! Also ideal for families, friends or couples offering security, privacy and comfort.

The accommodation is located near historical and cultural landmarks such as Old Square (Plaza Vieja), Cristo's Square (Plaza del Cristo), the National Capitol, Obispo Boulevard, Havana's Waterfront "el Malecon", Paseo del Prado and Cathedral Square, among other places.

*At this time the Hostel does not have Internet or WiFi. There is a similar situation throughout the country, access to Wi-Fi is difficult and you will have to buy Wi-Fi connection cards at Etecsa offices. Our guests can look up for information on the Etecsa website, Etecsa is the only telecommunications and internet company in the country.

Therefore, we recommend our guests to buy a Cuban SIM card to access mobile data, national calls and SMS, during their entire trip. Etecsa offers a SIM card service for international travelers for approximately one month, for a good price that will allow you to access Internet from anywhere in Cuba throughout your trip and share data with your partner.

Guests can make use of the living room, kitchen - dining room and public terrace. Laundry service, transportation, pick-up - transfer to the airport and car parking are offered. To enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner and excellent Cuban food as well as good live music, we recommend visiting La Vitrola and Mojito Mojito restaurants, among others located in Plaza Vieja, 5 minutes walk from your Hostel.

You can organize your day trip to Viñales from the Hostel as well as your transfer by colectivo to Trinidad, Cienfuegos, Viñales or Varadero, with attractive prices and through the contacts and friends of our Hostel.

For example, it is possible to organize a day trip to Viñales that includes a visit to an artisanal tobacco production farm and tasting of a Cuban cigar, a visit to local sites of interest such as the Hotel Los Jasmines viewpoint, the Mural of Prehistory and the Cueva del Indio, as well as round trip transportation. We also suggest a day trip to Varadero or Playa Larga, where you can visit local destinations and practice snorkeling along the Cuban coastline.

    My name is Mary and I'm Cuban, I was born in Havana and I'm currently a retired English teacher. I'm living with my son Rodney and my daughter in law, Laura. They both own a Guest House in Old Havana in the historical center of the city. I help them welcoming guests at home and I like sharing our knowledge of Havana so our guests can experience the beauty of our lovely city.
    I also enjoy preparing breakfast in the morning and chatting with our travelers about many things: our country, our lives as well as their lives and experiences. I enjoy good music, I love Cuban food and good wine although my favorite drink is Gin & Tonic!
    I hope you'll feel welcome in our house and I'll be happy to co-host during your time in Havana!
