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.
What travellers think
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.

- Sierra Maestra (by taxi for one person about 40 CUC), El Cobre - take a ride on the backseat on one of the numerous "motocicleta" and drive around Santiago de Cuba, crossing Bahia de Santiago de Cuba to El Morro and take a bath on one of the small beaches (differs from 1 CUC to 10 CUC, depending on the distance) - Casa de Diego Velazquez: oldest house in Santiago de Cuba (and Cuba?)

Budget meal tip
I got a real big plate with different kind of seafood and fish (lobster) for about 15 CUC in one of the restaurants at the "Plaza de Dolores" (sorry I can´t remember the exact name).
