Welcome to our hostel

Hostel Libertad is right in the centre of Santiago de Cuba, across from the central Plaza de Marte, which served in colonial times as a site for parades, military exercises, slave auctions, and that now has become the scene of important social and cultural activities.

Our hostel is open 24 hours a day, breakfast and linen are included in the price, meals are available and there is internet access.

From the hostel, you can go everywhere in the city: Heredia Street, the Casa de la Trova, the Rum, Carnival, and Environmental museums, and that of poet José María Heredia, among other places. Also in Santiago’s environs, visitors can tour or visit places of cultural, historical and landscape values, like Baconao Park and the sanctuary of Our Lady of Charity of Cobre, Cuba’s Patron Saint.

In fact, it is a 2 star hotel. Good staff and clean, however I didn't have hot water for two days. There is no internet service and it is not possible to make phone calls.
