Host Family

The option of living with a local host family tends to be the most popular choice among international students - with reason. With the accommodation in a host family you can practise your Spanish in a traditional and friendly environment and learn more about the culture and everyday life. 

The host families live in the same residential area as the language school, which means they are usually 5-20 minutes walking distance apart. The area is an authentic Cuban neighborhood, only 15 minutes away from Habana Vieja.

In a homestay you will be accommodated in a single room. Please note that half board is included, but the families do not provide any meals. You will receive your meals in the schools cafeteria, which serves breakfast and lunch every weekday and, on weekends, dinner instead of lunch.

Host families will do a small amount of your laundry once a week and bed linen and towels are provided and changed weekly.

Residence

The student residence in Cuba is situated in the school building. The accommodations consists of three rooms with a shared bathroom. There are single and double rooms available, but only students traveling together can book a double room. Half board (breakfast and lunch) is included, and the residence also offers the possibility of dinner. Bed linen and towels are provided and changed weekly. 

Apartment

Independent apartments very close to the school are also available to be shared with other students. Each apartment has: two
rooms (one with 1 bed and the other with 2 beds), large full-equipped bathroom and kitchen, air conditioning, a balcony or patio.
Towels and bed linen are provided.
