A great place to stay to see all the main places in Havana Vieja. Revolution museum, grand theatre etc only a few minutes walk away. Great breakfasts with lots of fruit and comfortable, air conditioned rooms. Definately recommended

Mercedes speaks perfect English and provided us excellent hospitality in a perfect location in the old town. We arrived in Cuba with only 3 nights accommodaton booked for our 2 week stay. We told Mercedes our general plan and she then arranged accommodation and transport for the rest of our holiday. As a result we also spent a terrific time in Santa Clara and Trinidad. She was also very helpful in advising about other features that made our holiday, such as the vagaries of the bus service and the best places to buy.

We spend some days at Casa Mercedes. It is a good and clean place and near all the things we wanted to visit (Capitolio, Plaza das Armas, Plaza Vieja, Obispo etc) Mercedes is very friendly and helpfull. She gave us good adresses of Casas in other cities. They were clean and well situated. She speaks English very well and so you can learn a lot about the country.
I would highly recommend this casa

Be prepared for hard beds and very thin walls and a lot of snoring and coughing all through the night.

The hostel itself is ok for cuban standards,nicely situated in Old Havana and with decent rooms. No dinner is served in the hostel but there are several restaurants nearby.

We were however quite annoyed with the owner, as she seemed to constantly try to get more money out of us (she went as far as to suggest that we shouldn't buy cigars from strangers because it's illegal and they're conmen...only to add that she could find cigars for us from a 'friend' who works in a cigar factory,which by the way is the line street conmen use..). After she saw that we were not going to generate any more cash for her,she lost any interest in conversation and didn't bother us any more.

I believe that the personality of the casa owner is quite important as this is one of the best ways to discover the cuban lifestyle,and on this basis i wouldn't recommend the hostel to anyone visiting Havana.
