The Hostel is nice. Its opposite the Residencia de Mexico in a realy safe neighbourhood, there are good bus connections around for you to get into town. The supermarket is a 20 cent 3 minute ride or 8 minutes walk away. The owner and young man who run the hostel are very nice and helpful and also speak English. There... More

Kitchen is big and the kitchenware is plentyful. Wifi works fast. We were welcomed by Sara who did understand English but was a little... More

We stayed here on our stopover to nica. Needless to say this is one of the nicer hostels I have stayed in at a cheap rate for a decent bed. The old converted home offers a beautiful expansive kitchen, a patio, and an area with a tv. Good wifi, great local!

This is a great budget hostel in a safe part of town ! The owner is more than helpful when it comes to places to visit and how to navigate the Buses. I paid $10 for a single bed in a 4 bed dorm and there were even cheaper beds if a really on a budget. Will be back again... More

Stayed overnight at this place after hanging around in San Salvador and too exhausted to make a late night return to my hometown. Hard to beat the $10 a night deal of this place, though the people running the place aren't the most talkative of all. It has good wifi, amazing location with ATMs, supermarkets, restaurants and other bars nearby.... More

It's a nice place, nice rooms, good kitchen, good internet, seems like a nice neighbourhood but... The people running it are not very talkative/informative about anything. You have to be very proactive if you need or want anything. The other downside was the shower. The drainage wasn't the best on the first night then when I went to have a... More

Overall a bit of weird place but in a good location and safe neighbourhood. Just a bit of a weird atmosphere in general as it seems to jut be a converted house but it has a good kitchen and is a good place to stay for a couple of nights if you're passing through San Salvador.

The Hostel is located in a bouche San Salv neighborhood with great proximity to local transport (also has secure parking). The owner Malcolm is a great source of info on just about everything in the city and the accommodations range from large singles to clean dorms. Hard to beat this place at $10 a night
