“Excellent Stay!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2011

Spent 1 night with my husband and two kids. Olga & Zaida were very accomodating, Olga met us at the bus station where she helped us arrange a taxi back to the casa. They recommended and made reservations for us at an excellent restaurant within walking distance. Beautiful, clean home felt very comfortable and welcome. The breakfast was excellent and very filling. We had a great time and would definately stay here again. Highly recommend!

Stayed December 2010, travelled on business

Olguita and her staff are all welcoming personalities. The interior setting
is splendid with both art and an inner bird sanctuary where you may eat and
enjoy the songs of the birds and a shaded sunshine. Our room was large
compared to other casa particulars in Santa Clara and the bed was
comfortable where as at other places I had bed springs sticking into my side
all night and my sleep was reduced significantly. It is 5 blocks to the
Colonial City Square which has been restored and is the main meeting place
for its citizen's leasure. The splended, beautiful Theatro Cuicidad has
performances for the cost of 50cents. And the movie theatre the same and
it's often american films with spanish subtitles. There are restaurants and
music clubs near by. You are a bus trip away from Lake Hannabanilla where 3
rivers were dammed between two sets of mountains and a town flooded over and it's panoramic views are spectacular; or you can go to the beaches in Santa Maria or the coral reefs in Corillilo area. It is home to the mausoleum,
museum, monument of the world famous revolutionary....Che Guevera which many people travel from all over the world to see and pay their respects. So,
you get an enjoyable home that is a short trip to interesting places. Best
wishes in your travels.

It was exactly what I was looking for. Not only because of the ratings above, but because I got to know more about Cuba and Cubans than from all my previous trips to the island combined. (My first visit to Cuba was in 1966.) I spent 28 days at the hostel, in a quiet neighbourhood, a five to ten minute walk from the centre of the city and its central park, shopping boulevard, museums and galleries, restaurants and bars. It's a people watcher's paradise. Tip: Start your days with breakfast at the hostel; four or five bucks for an abundance: rolls and butter, eggs your style, ham, cheese, a hamburger patty, a variety of fruit and juices and strong Cuban coffee. Lack of Spanish is not a problem because Olga speaks English quite well.

when I get in santa Clara at 12.30 in the nigth the only thing that I was whising for was a confortable place to stay and luky me I found this place...I tarvel a lot around Cuba but I have to say this is the best hostel where I been: clean, quiet, confortable whit a very good price. Olga is very kind and she can also give you good information and connections around Cuba if you whant to travel some where else.
The ostel is 5 minutes walking from the center of the town.
Probably the best place to stay in Santa clara
