    This was an amazing stop. It was a place with true art and artist. A celebration to painting, music and dance. We seen this as part of a tour. We enjoyed every aspect of this intriguing place. A must stop for art lovers!

    Hotel description
    Hamel Hostel rents a bed by 5 CUC per night in two shared dorms in Centro Habana, Havana, Cuba. You must confirm me you arrive with time for I can reserve you. The hostel is nice, legal, cheap, private, quiet, large, safe and fresh with capacity for 10 individual beds.Hamel Hostel is on the second floor. It has a shared kitchen with a gas cooker, a shared living with seats, a table, a refrigerator with minibar and a beautiful terrace with view to Centro Habana specially to Hamel's Alley and with seats and a table. I offer breakfast by 1 CUC and dinner by 2 CUC, wake-up, laundry, local maps and city information, free city tour, currency exchange, tea & coffee making facilities, free 24 hour and a taxi. Only the entrance is shared with the owner of the house. I speak English. Hamel Hostel has two shared dorms types available, 4 beds (1 bunk bed and 2 individual beds, 90 x 190) and 6 beds (3 bunk beds, 90 x 190), and they can accommodate a total of 10 people. Bed sheets and linen are provided and all beds have a closet with security locker. The first dorm has four fans, the second dorm has air conditioning. We have two shared baths with 24 hr hot showers.Hamel Hostel is near the University of Havana, Ameijeiras Brothers Hospital, Sea wall(Malecón), The Ramp(La Rampa), The Music House(live salsa), La Zorra y el Cuervo(live jazz), El Gato Tuerto, The Red Saloon(live salsa), The Cabaret Parisien, Chinatown, The Rumba Palace and the Hamel's Alley. Here you can enjoy the rumba, the salsa, the foods, the drinks and the outdoor murals and sculptures about our Afro-Cuban culture. Near there are a lot of stores with cheap foods and other famous nigth clubs, restaurants, cinemas, museums, theathers and galleries. Centro Habana is the bridge among the most modern area in the city, El Vedado, and the oldest, Old Havana. You can easily walk those three districts to discovery all its varied arquitecture and beauty in a few hours. You can come on taxi from José Martí international airport to my house(17 km). It can cost between 12 and 25 CUC. Also there is a bus named P16 cheaper and uncomfortable but it costs only 1 CUC. This bus has a bus stop at Station # 1 of airport near Ave Boyeros. You will arrive at Station # 3 (2 km from Station # 1) You must get off very near my house, 300 m. It is the last bus stop of P16 bus.
