The hostel The destination is a family house that Xavier, the host, has converted into a hostel with 4 independent rooms with a total capacity for 16 people. Located just 3 blocks from the Plaza Mayor, the tourist reference point of the city, allows you to arrive in minutes to any place of interest for tourists visiting the town of Trinidad in Cuba. Upon arrival you are greeted with a free fruit juice or welcome drink. Each room has a safe, is heated with split and with ceiling fan. The beds are comfortable and clean. Each bathroom is private inside, has shower in cabin with cold and hot water.
The house has very large terraces on the second and third levels, from where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the entire city, the Escambray mountains and a beautiful sunset on the horizon of the Caribbean Sea. You can call Xavier directly for the collection and transport of arrival and to the next destination because he owns a car that he uses for these purposes. The house has a landline that you can use for free to contact friends in the city and to guarantee your stay at the next destination.

    Very spacious and clean room. Everyday clean towels and a made-up bed. Clean bathroom with a nice shower with warm water. Lovely rooftop terrace, where a great breakfast is served (one of the best we had during our holiday). Very very friendly people. Compared to other casas, you maybe pay a bit more, but it is 100% definitely worth it: we would recommend to stay here!

    What a perfect place to stay while you are at Trinidad! The rooms were very tidy and all the persons who worked over there were so friendly. The cook and waiter did everything to make our stay as good as it could be, so did the rest of the staff. Xavier and his people are the perfect hosts! The casa is perfectly situated; only a 3 minutes walk to the places to be at night and yet quiet enough to sleep without any noise from outside. If you plan to go to Trinidad we highly recommend staying here. Hasta la proxima (I hope)

    A little hard to find at first but hey, that’s the old city of Trinidad. Once you enter the casa you find the perfect spot with a lively courtyard and rooftop terrace. The rooms are spacious and everything is there even a view at the old church at the plaza. We had dinner twice, it was all fresh but a pity that the complete dinner was exactly the same both times. Breakast was good. Try your best spanish here because they hardly speak any english.

    Excellent casa close to the restaurants, Plaza Mayor and the Viazul station. The room is spacious, clean and modern. Breakfast on the terrace was splendid. We had a fantastic dinner on our last evening, thanks to Alexis the chef and the very friendly waiter. I highly recommend Hostal El Destino.

    We had a great stay here. The host was very helpful in organising taxis and trips out to the beach, to the waterfalls and to Varadero. We had breakfast every day which included fresh fruit and omelettes were cooked to order. The pancakes were delicious. We were served a lovely refreshing cold drink of lemon when we arrived after a long day travelling which was much appreciated. The rooms were a good size and clean with air conditioning. We could have had an evening meal cooked for us but we wanted to try the food in the restaurants. A perfect retreat in Trinidad.

    We stayed here for 2 nights in July 2018.
    The room we had was clean, spacious, comfortable, air conditioned, with very good beds. The bathroom toilet was a bit noisy when flushing, but we didn't even bother to report this to the staff :-)
    Having a good breakfast on the cosy roof terrace with friendly staff makes a perfect start for any day in or around Trinidad. You probably also couldn't get a casa better located than this one.
    Yaily is friendly and very helpful (and beautiful on top of that)...
    Thanks for having us!
