Muy amable pareja y hija, siempre dispuestos a ayudarme con cualquier cosa!
They are really nice people. Kind and helpful.
Very comfortable and spacious, with a nice and big breakfast available. The host helped us a lot with arranging taxis to and from the airport, and the room was nice and quiet at night so we were able to sleep well.
Iris was a very warm and welcoming host. The room was nice and clean. We enjoyed our stay at this hostel very much
I certainly will come again
This is a very special experience, they are not only hosts but like family in La Habana. The rooms are nice and clean, breakfast is great ...
The casa is in a good place. 20 minuten walking to Havana Vieja'. 10 minutes to Malecon. Close to Wifi hotspot. We didn't see the hosts on the Photo, but we saw the daughter, Susie most. She made us a good Breakfast. Speaks reasonable English and she was very helpful.
Abbiamo alloggiato da Iris Eloisa solo una notte. La stanza era molto pulita e con tutti i comfort indicati nella descrizione. L'alloggio si trova a due passi dall'Università dell'Havana, in una posizione molto comoda per visitare a piedi il Vedado e per raggiungere il Centro. Inoltre, la zona è molto vivace e la sera si possono trovare molti bei locali dove cenare e trascorrere una bella serata. La colazione, che viene servita sul terrazzo, non è inclusa, ma è molto economica per la varietà e l'abbondanza di ciò che offre.
This guest awarded the host 3 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Wij zijn hier drie nachten verbleven op het einde van onze trip door Cuba. Tegenover andere hostels/casas vonden we ze hier minder betrokken. Bij aankomst kregen we wel goede uitleg. Vedado is +/- 3 km wandelen van de oude stad. Het hostel ligt wel in een rustige zone.
Hygiëne kan beter. Er was wat schimmel aan de rand van de douche. Ontbijt was genoeg, maar geen wauw. Ook hier aandacht voor hygiëne. We kregen vuile koffiemokjes.
