Welcome to our hostel

Built on the white sand of a beach and closer to the sea than any other hotel in Varadero, Hotel Herradura is famous for its unique horseshoe shape opened to the coastal area and a huge balcony overlooking the vast stretches of the beach and the Gulf of Mexico.

Hostel Herradura offers quality accommodation to both individual travellers and groups. Facilities include free breakfast, self-catering kitchen, air conditioning, common room, café and a tour desk. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help.

The hostel is a perfect starting point to explore Varadero. You can visit Josone Park filled with different kinds of birds, music, dancing and camel rides. Other activities the city has to offer are snorkelling in the coral barrier reef, dolphin show, visiting Villa Du Pont and see the most famous cabaret on Cuba – Tropicana Matanzas.

Hotel beach is awesome. Breakfast not so great. If you are a group of people, they might relocate you to a house, about a 5-10 minute walk.

We actually ended up going back to Hotel Herradura and they gave us the same deal as when we booked through HI Hostels. The staff are really great there, the location is fantastic away form the Big tourist area, it's close to the bus, easy to get a cab and the bar being open all night is great especially when your flight is in the middle of the night. Oh did I mention it's right on the beach.

Breakfast was included and it was very good, the Hotel Foyer very good, the room, well, remember, this is a ** Hotel, so, you can't expect too much but, it would be nice if they cleaned the windows at least once a year, so, you can look out of them and repair the balcony so it can be utilized.
