Osniel and his family were amazing hosts. He helped us with everything, including arranging a taxi for us from the airport when we arrived. He explained everything about Cuba and gave us lots of useful tips. He also helped us find casas in other places which in return also turned out to be amazing. He really helped us have a great time in Cuba! We 100% can recommend him and we are very grateful that we could stay with his family. Thank you!
Osniel ist sehr freundlich Gastgeber. Er hat uns geholfen Tipp geben wo können wir gut Essen, taxi rufen. Wohnung war gut , sauber und groß. die Treppe war sehr steil für uns( 67 und 82 Jahre) sehr nach zum Capitolium und Plaza Viaja. Frühstück für 3 CUC war ok. ich kann weiter empfohlen diese Unterkunft.
We had a great start of our holiday at Osniel's place. The family gave us a warm welcome and good information about Havanna and Cuba. Good room with a free safe and warm water. One of the matrasses could be better, it was not very comfortable to feel the springs. But in our opinion Osniel can give you the best start of your holiday.
Osniel is the perfect host! He and his family are extremly hospitable and helped us plan our trip with shared taxis and accomodation to other destinations in Cuba.
The room was clean and felt private. Wi-Fi is in the house! The breakfast for 3 CUC was very good to. We highly recommend Osniels place!
Ottimo servizio da parte di Homestay e grande disponibilità da parte di Osniel e della sua famiglia nell’ aiutarci per tutti i 15 giorni di viaggio con i suoi suggerimenti utili e tempestivi
Great location and hospitality! Osniel is a true professional making hosts feel comfortable and enjoy their holiday. Really good value for money. We really enjoyed our time during the Christmas 2019.
Thank You and happy new year Osniel and all the best for you and your family.
We received a warm welcome by Osniel and his family. They were always avaible to answers questions and give suggestions.
They even learned us to play domino!
Rooms were very comfortable and clean.
We had a wonderful time. We are happy that we got to meet Osniel and his family. They were very kind and lovely and helped us with everything. They also told us interesting stories about life in cuba. We wish them all the best :)
Osniel and his family are really nice. Immediately after arrival we decided that we would return here also for our last night in Cuba. The location is great, connection to wi-fi is available in the casa, breakfast was good and the place was clean. Osniel was very helpful with recommendations around the city, arranging taxis, etc. He even checked on us during our trip, helped with booking of another casa halfway through the trip and was available for any question we might have. I would really recommend to stay here.
Osniel y Familia were an amazing host. Super friendly and helpful as they gave us a good start in Cuba. Would recommend!
