Hostal Habana Hierbabuena is located in the neighborhood Centro Habana, an excellent location within walking distance of the main tourist attractions: Old Havana, the Malecon, Vedado, Chinatown, the Callejon de Hammel, Plaza of the Revolution ... they may move within a small radius to major restaurants and trendy places that you can find in El Vedado. Both on foot and on any transportation that can take from that walk out our door. Our private home is a family business whose mission is to cater to tourists and make their stay in Cuba as pleasant as possible. Located in a two-storey building, the hostel is located on the second floor (or higher), which has 3 double rooms with private bathroom (hot / cold 24 hours and air conditioning) for rent (with totally separate entrance offering more privacy); and a separate apartment on the roof terrace. We also have a beautiful rooftop terrace features to have a good time at dusk and where we offer our customers the opportunity to take a mojito, drink or cubalibre to end the day. We have made a remodeling recently colonial house so that visitors can enjoy the architecture and beauty of the time, keeping original ceilings of almost 7 meters, the mosaic floors and seeking a balance between quality and price, comfort and closeness. You can enjoy a fully healthy breakfast, savoring the Caribbean own exotic fruits, which grow in our garden in the province of Artemisa and coming directly to our house: homemade jams, juices and smoothies, bread toast, etc. Perfect way to start the long hot tourist days. Regarding our neighborhood, the house is located a few meters from the main avenue Carlos III very close to the Carlos III shopping center, an area with lots of atmosphere and life for the day, but also very quiet at night. We have to leave the house the necessary public services for our customers; a bank where you can exchange currency, ATMs, any store, restaurants and bars. And all in complete safety.

I have not stayed at this property, but it was recommended to me by a casa in Viñales who knows the owners. I needed to leave two suitcases in Havana, as I had arrived there in the morning and had a late evening flight to return, so I could take a walk around the city without having any luggage. I arrived at 11AM, left 2 trolleys and agreed with the owners for collection. Around 6PM I returned to pick up my bags and I gave the owner €5 for his kindness. Evidently it was not enough, in fact he asked me for another 5€, which I gave him. Not very nice behavior, but actually quite common among local people.

I can't recommend this place enough! We normally stay in hotels when we travel but this place was recommended to us and let me say it did not dissapoint! Doña Elba and Don Osvaldo went over and above to accommodate us and to welcome us into their family! They prepare the most delicios coffee and the breakfast was delicios every morning. The house is well looked after, very very clean, with tall ceilings in a colonial traditional style but with all the modern amenities and with all the privacy you need. It is located in the Central Havana about 15min walk from the Havana Vieja and about 15min walk from New Havana where the revolution square is, therefore it was perfect for exploring the city. We walked around in the day and at night with no problems at all, it's very safe! Across the road there is a shopping mall and 5 min away there is a park where you can connect to the Internet if necessary. We stayed for 5 days and each day, Osvaldo and Elba would advise us on what to see in the best and cheapest way possible. They helped with taxis, with shopping, with renting a car and much more! I have attached some pictures but believe me, they do not make justice on how lovely and friendly this place is! I will recommend Havana Hierbabuena to all my friends and family wishing to travel and explore the true Havana! Gracias Doña Elba y Don Osvaldo! 🤗 😘

I want to start off by complementing the amazing people Elba and Osvy are, they take care of every single detail while hosting you in their place, they are the nicest and warmest people. Anibal helps you with all the logistics in a very responsive and accurate way (which is not common in Cuba because of the lack of internet.) Anibal also helps you plan your stay and tours you want to take. The apartment is located in Habana Centro which is about 15 min walking from Habana Vieja and maybe a 5 min and 5cuc taxi drive. Right across the street there is a shopping center you can go to to exchange money, some restaurants, stores, food stores. Breakfast at the Hostal is wonderful, made by Elba and served by Osvy with very fresh and tasteful ingredients. The mango and guava jelly are out of this world!! The rooms are comfortable with AC, private door, private restroom with hot and cold water. You can also get to the Malecon within a 10-15 min walk. Hostal Habana is great for visiting Habana. Quizá deba empezar por la hospitalidad de los anfitriones y la buena comunicación de principio a fin para cualquier tipo de pregunta relacionada con el viaje. El hostal esta ubicado just frente al centro comercial Carlos III donde se puede cambiar dinero y comprar comida. Caminando a habana vieja son como 15 minutos pero un taxi cobra solamente 5cuc. El malecon esta como a 10-15 min caminando. Los cuartos son cómodos con lo necesario para una buena estadía. Los desayunos son espectaculares y muy bien servidos. Osvi y su mamá hacen hasta lo imposible para que te sientas en casa, de verdad fueron como familia y fue un placer conocerlos. Anibal quien se encarga de todo lo relacionado con comunicación y logística siempre fue muy amable en ayudarnos con todo, son un gran equipo y sin duda regresaríamos al Hostal Habana Hierbabuena.

This is such a great hostel - can't recommend it enough. The owners are so friendly and helpful and will really go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. It's in a great location close to El Malecon where you can see the real Cuba . The rooms were comfortable and very clean , the bathroom was great too - there is a good shower with hot water and full access to the kitchen. We also had breakfast here every day (for a cheap price) and it was absolutely delicious. and the Mojitos in the roof terrace at dusk were to die for !!!!! it was a great experience all around, Elva and Osvaldo were always smiling and give us tips on great restaurants and night live, I would really recommend this hostel to all travellers!!
