Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed here three nights in January 2020...location is perfect if you are wanting to stay in the heart of Old Havana. Staff here were friendly and helpful, most notably Yuli, Talia and Arianna who all speak fluent English and were invaluable to my stay. They were able to help me with my transportation needs and any other requests I had for a very special visit. Room was small but clean. No bathroom door however, so get comfortable quick if you have a travel partner. The art displayed all over this hostel is beautiful and adds to it's charm. We ate only breakfasts here but food was very good and it's a nice inner-city view from the roof-top bar/restaurant. I would advise not changing money here, they gave a whole 10% less than the bank, however the bank took about 90 minutes of waiting...suppose it just depends how valuable your vacation time is to you. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to other travellers without reservation.

I highly recommend staying here when you’re visiting Cuba! The hotel is very well kept, clean, and very modern. The location is great because you feel like you are in the heart of Havana vieja and the service was fantastic. My family and I really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely stay here again next time we visit!!!

This is our 3rd time staying at this amazing hostal, as a family we always try to book safe location and family friendly as well. This place is simply amazing, the location is unique, a few steps from the Malecon and the city center, the owner Alberto and his wife Yudi are always ready to help you and to guide you trough your stay, they give us amazing restaurant recommendations and give us a bus tour around the city, we had an amazing experience, the restaurant is one of the best views on town, the food was incredible, staff friendly, the cleaning lady the cooker, the bartender, front desk was available 24 hours. In general we had an amazing experience, we do recommend this place*********** Definitely will be back!!!!!

I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights with 7 of my friends, and we had a truly wonderful experience! The employees are so friendly and so kind. The rooms were extremely clean and the art pieces were beautiful. The rooftop bar is a perfect place to eat breakfast in the morning, or to have a few drinks before going out for the evening. If I'm ever back in Havana (which I hope will be so soon!), I will stay here. I could not recommend this place more :)

My experience at Art studio 55 was great starting from the location that is walking distance from Capitolio (boulivard), old havana (veija) and malecon. The owners Alberto & yudi are so kind and helpfull and the staff (Ariana, franky & osmany) shows a high quality of customer service as ariana was always trying to help with the smile on her face and franky wrote me all the places that i could visit. The rooms was so clean and neat as they check out the rooms on daily basis to make sure that the housekeeping are doing their job, well designed place as a real art studio

Nice, friendly and helpful staff ready to assist you 24/7. Cosy and clean rooms. Access to wifi at a reasonable cost. Good location in Old Havana and very near to Malecón esplanade along the cost. We really enjoyed our four day stay there!

This facility is located just a few steps from the city center and the Malecon (perfect location), the hostal is sparkling clean and provides a great hospitality (24 hours customer services available). The hostal owner Mr. Alverto and his wife were very helpful and guide us throughout our stay (awesome recommendations). The staffs were very helpful (cleaning ladies were very friendly). The hostal provides us everything we need and more. The rooftop restaurant was great, when i say food was great(i mean it) Overall experience was awesome, more than what we expected. ************ I'll recommend this hostal to everyone.*************** I will definitely go back on my next trip...

We just came back from a rather wonderful scuba trip in Cuba , jardino dei reinas, and in general had a wonderful experience but this Hostel Habana Vieja 55. On the positive, the location is excellent , the staff is really nice and tries to help out but ... we were three men and had booked a room in accordance but found ourselves with a double bed , excellent for a couple in love , in addition we received a spare cot for the first two nights. The manager claimed it must have been a communication issue with the agency and he could not help. He made clear if we didn’t like we could go somewhere else. Next morning at the breakfast a couple comes and I overhear a very angry man telling the manager that he will call the police after having slept with his wife in a room full of dust ! Unfortunately on our way back we had another stop at that place which we could not change and again communication issues among us... , interesting wise it was always us having misheard , misinterpreted and it was but our mistakes.... 120 USD for a room is clearly overpriced beside having killed 2 bugs on the first night. One advice , 100m away at the Havana street are absolutely lovely places which cost 55 USD for a double bed , 2 persons , inclusive breakfast and very friendly manager. Enjoy Cuba and his friendly people but be aware of some tourist traps like that one !

We had toyed with the idea of staying at one of the big name, full service hotels, yet opted for Habana Viega 55 based on the great location, and the desire for a more intimate experience with Cuba. Yessi runs a tight ship and keeps the hotel clean and ensures the guests are comfortable and well served at all hours. Yudi, Yessi and Adriana provided solid recommendations on dining, touring, and night life experiences as well as interesting insights on the people/culture, art, history, government and pride of Cuban people. The entire team was fun and engaging whether it be during a delicious authentic Cuban breakfast/lunch or during cocktail hour on the roof top terrace overlooking the Old Havana neighborhood. If you are looking for an expensive 5 star hotel experience, this is not the place. If you are looking for a 5 star reasonably priced experience with a much more personalized and informative Cuban experience, I highly recommend Habana Viega 55. Ps. Props to the owner Alberto for his good taste in people and artwork!
