My friend and I had never been to San Salvador before so we found this hostel on Bookings.com It had great reviews so we caught a bus from Santa Tecla and arrived about 11am. A sweet lady named Sara, who speaks English, was there to open the front gate for us. Malcom got us checked in showed us to our... More

We found this hostel on TripAdvisor. Its nice,clean and quit. Flying into San Salvador you dont really have much options close to the airport. Its about a 20 buck cab ride to the hostel. The staff is great and the owner is very helpful. He gave us great advice and told us bus routes we would need for our trip.... More

I got a really nice night's sleep as the only person in my 5-room dorm. The bathroom was nice with hot water and good pressure. The place smelled like my grandmother's house, I can't decide what that means. It's someone's house so there's always that feeling that you are sort of taking over someone's home. Was not very conducive to... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a response. All of the staff here (there are only 3 of us including me the owner) read all of our reviews and always learn something from them. Although our hostel used to be a large private house, it is not any longer. All of the original 6 bedrooms are... More

I stayed in this hostel for a few days and liked it. The pros: very safe location (walkable to a big street with grocery stores, restaurants, and a shopping mall), strong wifi throughout the hostel, nice tv, amazing kitchen, free water refills, very friendly staff. The cons: grungy bathroom in the dorms and no lockers (which I believe they are... More

The location is perfect , really safe area and close to the bus , supermarkets and restaurants. Our room was big, simple but clean , same for the bathroom.

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

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
