Arriving in San Salvador after a long day travelling down from Flores in Guatemala, I needed somewhere clean, relaxed, comfortable and friendly. This ticked all the boxes. I was hesitant about paying $8 but the hostel is in one of the most secure areas of the city and is essentially a converted big house/mansion. It's very nice inside and incredibly... More

We really liked this hostel. The whole house gave me a "homey" feeling which was very nice. It has a good quality kitchen, and a nice common area with a tv and table to eat at. The rooms are not fancy, but they were everything we needed! Two beds and some room on the floor to our bags, plus very... More

The room was very nice. Large with comfortable bed, cable TV, plenty of storage space, warm homie decore, great location! But the best part of our stay was the way Malcolm and Walter treated us. Went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Walter gave us a 4:00 wake-up with a smile. Very helpful with directions ANYWHERE.... More

I really liked this place-stayed here twice. Clean large dorm rooms, plenty of fans in room. Hot water with rain shower heads. The staff was shy but very friendly. The owner wasn't around when I stayed but he sent me a detailed email answering all my questions before I arrived. Only down side is that its in a kind of... More

overall we had a good stay at this place. There was AC in our room and hot showers. There was also a communal kitchen for guests. The place was quite full with a wide variety of guests which was nice. We took a taxi to the centre but are glad we didn't stay in the centre. We got good service... More
