As a young couple we truly believe in the lyrics of our favourite song “En Todas Partes” from the CD Habana Blues. Some of these lyrics were painted on our artistic wall in many different languages. Although we’re a hostel, we’re a family too and want to keep it that way. So, we’ll always do that bit more to make you feel at home, make sure you enjoy your time with us as part of our family and help you with your travel plans on the island. We can give you a hand planning your trip around Cuba.
Be ready to have a complete different experience of Cuba. We look forward to meeting you soon and helping you with anything you might need or just want to know.
How to find us? (Click on the map to enlarge)
Damas Street #709 between Luz & Acosta, is just 5 blocks away from Plaza Vieja in the old Havana, being then an ideal base to explore all the colonial and cultural gems in the area. Mango Hostel is also a 10 minute walk from the Capitolio, making it really easy to go to about everywhere around in the City on a low budget.
We offer details of how to get to Hostel Mango from: Capitolio, Airport, bus and train stations.
You can also refer to our location on google maps.
Many travellers download the maps.me app in their smartphone before travelling. Upon arrival they guide themselves offline and arrive at the hostel quite well with it.

About our Services
If you wish to save the time of the waiting line at the money exchange booth (CADECA), we can offer to advance the taxi fare for you and you’ll pay us back with your accommodation.
It is necessary to negotiate and make the price clear before getting in the taxi and ask as well to arrive in front of the hostel.
If you arrive at Terminal 3 you may want to go upstairs to the Salidas/Departures level. Taxis there arrive to drop exiting passengers and there’s a good chance they will go back to the city without waiting for new travellers. It is then possible to negotiate with them to get the fare to the city centre for 15 or 20 cuc. There’s a higher probability obviously when there are departures around that time. At the Arrival level, downstairs, the fare costs 25 cuc, although they usually charge more.
We can also organize custom-made Tours and Activities and we’ll always help you realize your ideas and wishes.
