Your reservation will be confirmed immediately
You can book any accommodation in Cuba, including hotels and casas particulares (home stays, B&Bs, hostels, detached rooms & vacation rentals) through this web site. Also you can book international/domestic flights & rental cars.
Get in touch with us at any time by e-mail if you want to book a casa particular or need more information. We will get back to you as soon as possible, generally before 12 hours after receiving your e-mail.
Through Hostelsclub web site reservations for casas particulares will be confirmed immediately using your credit card. A small fee will be charged to confirm and guaranteed your reservation.
The casa particular balance due is payable upon check-in at the property. Hotels, flights & rental cars must be paid in full before arrival.
With your booking confirmation you will receive all contact details for the reserved services.
Lodging is guaranteed upon arrival
Havana Homestay honours every confirmed reservation. If for any last minute reason or force majeure we are unable to allocate you in the reserved house, then it would be our responsibility to arrange a suitable alternative lodging of a comparable standard and location, with no extra cost. You can trust to find a guaranteed lodging upon arrival.
Price & Lodging policies
Casa particular prices are per room per night. So, the price will be the same for one or two people in the same room. The third and fourth people in the same room, if possible, are extra cost.
The price only includes accommodation. Meals and other services are extra cost.
Some owners ask for a minimum stay of two nights. When staying for more than thirty nights generally a 10% discount will be applied.
Check-in time is at 16:00 H. Check-out time is at 12:00 H. However you can deal check-in/check-out at any time depending on availabilities. If you check-out after 18:00 H it will be applied an extra one-night charge.
Booking in advance & Last minute reservation
Off-season, booking two weeks in advance generally works fine. However, during high-season months: January, February, March, April, July, August, November and December, we suggest to make your reservation at least two month in advance. If you decide to come in the last minute, it’s better to make a phone reservation.

Arrival details & Transfer
Once you have cleared customs and collected your luggage, take a cab to the booked house or ask in advance for Havana airport private pick up service. The 20 km journey from Havana International Airport to the booked accommodation normally takes about 30 minutes. The average ride to the city costs $30 - $35 for 1-2 people.
Inform in advance your arrival details to Havana Homestay. This way your host will be prepared to receive you at home on time.
- You must be aware of hustlers, taxi drivers and other people at the airports, bus stations or on the streets, who may offer you cheaper accommodation, transportation services or money exchange. This happens frequently and the services they offer are not legitimate, are of very poor quality and may bring you trouble. Havana Homestay strongly discourages any sort of deals with these solicitors to avoid dangerous risks for you.
Registration, lodging & Payment
The host will be waiting for you at home. Upon arrival, the host will register you in the Registration Book by using your passport and Tourist Card or your visa record. Once your registration is done you will pay the total balance due. This payment must be fulfilled in CUC cash.
You can only exchange your currency into CUC upon your arrival to Cuba. The CUC exchange rates are published daily.
- Visitors are welcome to any home. However access to bedrooms is strictly limited to those who are registered in the casa particular.
- Cuban authorities do not allow the traffic or use of narcotics, prostitution, paedophilia, pornography, and sexual tourism. These activities are persecuted and very strongly penalized. None of these activities will be permitted in Cuban accommodations promoted by Havana Homestay.
Home-cooked meals & Laundry services
After previous accordance, home-cooked meals may be offered at an additional cost. The best and cheapest meal options are obtained in your homestay. Size portions of breakfasts, lunches and dinners will be much larger than in a restaurant and far tastier and healthy. You can expect to pay about $4 -$5 for a breakfast and about $10 for a main meal. If you want to have breakfast, lunch or dinner just ask for it! Laundry services are also available for an accessible extra fee.
