    The best price in Havana. And the owner (Magnolia) recomends other places to stay in other cities for a best price. It is a little far from the tourist zone (about 3Km from Obispo), so it is possible to eat in places frequented by Cubans, and not only by tourists (I think it's much more interesting! and cheaper too). Very close to malec´ón and bus stop.

    Really nice hostel. Great value for money (especially 1CUC breakfast!) very spacious and nice hosts. Only downside is it's a bit far away from the old town and a 3am curfew but overall very satisfactory!

    Everything is very dirty, beds are old, sheets are even older, but all of this is ok. The worst thing in the hostel is the Staff there is this elderly man that checks you in and he is the rudest person I have ever seen working in hospitality, keep in mind that you have to leave the hostel from 12 to 3 pm as they are doing the cleaning and you can’t stay there. Cleaning that by the Wang doesn’t happen.
