    I had the best time in Santa Clara and in this hostel. It’s a small hostel so it’s easy to meet people which was great. The beds are super comfy and the terrace is really beautiful too. The hosts are so kind and friendly and immediately were so helpful as I needed to call another hostel in Cuba. They have really cute kittens too and everyone was so friendly towards me I really enjoyed my time there!

    When I showed up, it turned out that the hostel was overbooked. The very friendly owner took me to his friend's casa particular, which was amazing. I paid the same price as for the hostel, but it was a much more upscale experience that should have cost much more. My friends were staying at the hostel, and I was invited inside. It looks great, and I would be happy to stay there. But my review is one of the 'being overbooked and upgraded' experience. If you get overbooked here, excellent!

    Good location, walking distance to anywhere you will probably want to visit. About 15-20 mins walk from bus station. Juan is helpful, suggested a good restaurant. Dorm room is a bit cramped but was fine forme and good value. My only suggestion is that you pay for extras as you go along, or else the final bill can be a bit of a shock. Santa Clara is an interesting place to stay and If I were in town again, I'd stay in the same place

    The hostel was in a great location with incredible staff, The place itself is very clean and has a great terrace. I would definitely recommend people to stay here. The host organised my travel to Trinidad and was always happy to help with any questions I had.

    The room is a bit basic, but host Juan is fantastic. Friendly and welcoming, he has a lot of local knowledge which he's happy to share, particularly when it comes to food and drink. He has a great knack for recommending places in a gentle manner, so that you don't feel pressured into going. All of his suggestions I followed were great.

    I had two terrible nights of sleeping in this place. There was a rooster srcreaming a lot during all the night. During the second night it was almost impossible to sleep for all the hosts. Nevertheless the owner and his wife are very nice people, very polite and always willing to help.

    Do not stay here! This place was full of bed bugs. The owner asked me to pay upfront and I only found out that my bed was full of bed bugs after, seeing the insects on the sheets and on the walls. Now I am full of insect bites and the owner did nothing to help. Also, the owner and his wife were screaming at each other at night and I could here it from my room.
