Stayed here for a couple nights with my best friend on our quick trip to Havana. The host, Rodolfo speaks perfect English and is extremely helpful in terms of recommending places, exchanging money...etc. The place is very clean and lively (you will meet all age range travelers [many young]) who are very nice. Breakfast was very yummy and location is...

The host, Rodolfo speaks fluent English, you may ask for his help whenever you need help, like the wifi problem, sending postcards, etc. I stayed in the private room for 3 nights, the room is comfortable and clean. I saw people there cleaning the public areas every day. The breakfast is nice and you may pay extra 5 CUC for...

I stayed 1 night in Havana at Hostal Casa Caribe. The private room was clean and well mantained: it had a fan, air conditioning and a bathroom. The location is a bit dodgy, but not dangerous. Anyway, you're in Havana! The owner was very friendly and gave me useful informations. We had a small misunderstanding, but he was very nice...

I would highly recommend this hostel for many reasons. The first one is the excellent value for money. The accomodation is comfortable, very clean, has an ETECSA connection (internet connection is still quite rare in Cuba) and a good breakfast. The second one and the most important for me is the host's kindness. Rodolfo gave me amazing recommendations about other...

The hostel is 10 minutes walking from old Havana. The owner is very nice and the stuff is very helpful. They offered us free coffee and we could use their kitchen. The breakfast was so good with fresh fruits and fresh juice. We spent their only one night and will definitely come back there if we come back to havana.

This hostel casa is rare in Havana but a great find. Rodolfo was very hospitable and the accommodation was clean, well located and a great place to meet fellow travellers. Highly recommend! Havana in general is a lively place from early morning to late night so if you're a light sleeper take ear plugs! The casa is approximately 10-12 mins...

Hostel Casa Caribe is one of the only few hostels located in Havana/Cuba.
