    Very kind people working there! Excellent local knowledge about how to be in Havana as a foreigner. Clean, no bugs, easy access to boiled and filtered water, quiet. What more could you ask for? It's located in an area that you might not want to spend a great deal of time in, but it's an easy 10-minute walk to more touristy areas of the city. When I come back, I will be staying here! If you have any extra supplies that you can bring, they would greatly appreciate it; trade embargo.

    Great staff, and perfect if you are travelling by yourself! Probably the best hostel Ive been to in Cuba! No breakfast men free coffee, Tea and water (which by the way is difficult to find elsewhere) Can only recommend!

    As a solo traveller I didn't find it the easiest to meet people in Havana. Rolando's is a great social hostel, nice rooftop and good rooms. Enrique and Leo were super friendly. Helped me book transport and accommodation for Trinidad. Central location and safe. Thanks. Sam

    Although me and my two friends were the only travellers in early September, we could definitely see it as a social hostel in peak travel periods. The upstairs bar/sitting area is small but quite nice! The rooms are spacious and the beds relatively comfortable. The owners were very helpful in helping us find rides to the airport, the bus station, and Trinidad so be sure to ask if you plan on doing any travelling outside Havana! The woman was very fluent in English. Overall, great experience.

    Cuba isn't known for having the newest facilities, so keep that in mind. The staff were very helpful and friendly and spoke English well. The beds weren't very comfortable and I didn't have hot water. The kitchen isn't really for use, but there is a kitchen, if you ask, they may let you use it. The coffee at breakfast is nice. It's maybe a 20-30 minute walk to the old town. Very much with the locals and away from the tourists here but safe enough.

    NO AC !!! It was f**** hot. You got a room in a house of a family, I mean even the uncle is there. You don't feel like sharing the place with them as the pictures shows. I was leaving at 6am and paid the room the day before but he didn't know and wouldn't let me leave !! Asking for money... NOTHING to sit on the toilet. Not hot water for shower.
