Osniel y Familia were an amazing host. Super friendly and helpful as they gave us a good start in Cuba. Would recommend!
Location, host, breakfast are great! Osniel helped us a lot and gave us very good advices. It was a pleasure. Thanks Osniel and see you next time! :-) Alexandra
We loved our stay at Osniel’s place in Havana Vieja. It’s conveniently located within walking distance of all the sights in the old town. The rooms are clean and quiet, breakfast was great. Osniel is a very helpful host, giving us tips on what to see and do in Havana, some of which only locals will know! Even when our flight got cancelled and needed a place to stay he immediately came tot he rescue. He also helped us out arrange accomodations in casas in other cities, all of which were of good quality! Couldn’t have picked a better place to start a trip in Cuba!
Our stay at Osniel was great! He and his wife are very kind, funny and helpful. Nice rooms, breakfast and location. Thanks for everything!
We really enjoyed our stay with Osniel. The room was comfortable and Osniel and his wife were very nice and welocoming hosts, giving us tips and go-to's in Havana and arranging our travel to and from Havana. From the house, all the sights in Havan Vieja were on walking distance.
Great location, very good price and a host that is there with a friendly smile and a good advice 24/7. Highly recommendable!
Our stay with Osniel was perfect! He was very helpful with finding other accomodations around Cuba and transportation and had a lot of good recommendations for things to do in Havana.
The accomodation and the breakfast were also very nice.
I would highly recommend this homestay for everyone travelling to Havanna!
Osniel and his family are extremely nice folks and fine hosts. They provided us with great room accommodations, delicious breakfasts (ask for the jugo de mango), and set up transportation/accommodation for us in Vinales. You can't go wrong staying here and thank you again Osniel!
The last few days of my vacation I stayed with Osniel and his family. A great stay and a wonderful family. Very welcoming, warm hearted, helpful and open minded. A wonderful house in the middle of Old Havana with everything on walking distance. In the morning you can sit down for a delicious breakfast, overlooking the streets. Osniel provided me with a map of Old Havana and with some great tips for things to see and do in the city. It's a wonderful family. I had some great conversations with Osniel and his family, about Cuba, about where i am from, and other things.
My last days on Cuba.
My last few days in Cuba were Amazing
We had a lovely time with Osniel and his family. They were lovely people, and very hospitable. Our kids had a great time playing with Osniel's daughter. We have very fond memories of our stay!
