We stayed just one night before going to Nicaragua. The place is ok, but it was difficult to find it, even for a taxi driver. The owners are lovely and helpfull. The rooms are simple but ok. The restrooms are outside the bedrooms but very close to the rooms.

Hostal Dona Marta is run by a very friendly man and his wife. It has large clean rooms, and the owners are very helpful in giving advice on what to see and do, giving maps, etc. It is fairly close to the historic centre of San Salvador. The food at this hostal is really good, although it does take them... More

We ended up staying here for almost a week. The breakfasts are awesome, the room was big, cool and airy, even without AC, and the shower was warm. It's a nice place, secure and safe, with a local family. We just hung out here a lot, the kids did some school work, played with the owner's kids and dogs and... More

Nothing bad could be said about this hostal; the friendliness, attentiveness, helpfulness and delicious free breakfast make up for any shortcomings. Just some things need to be addressed before they start generating bad reviews. Stay here if you want to feel like you`re with family or old friends because that`s what this hostal is all about. Party hardy, stay out... More

My dad stayed here for two months, and Eduardo and Kricia took such good care of him! They allowed him to Skype home, made sure he had plenty to eat, and even showed concern when he was sick! His room was simple, but clean and cool. Highly recommend them!

My husband spent a month in this family-owned and run hostel while on assignment. Eduardo and Crissya are a professional couple with 2 friendly young daughters who open their lovely home in the heart of San Salvador. They take kind care of guests and offer a tranquil, happy, comfortable environment to stay and work. Crissya speaks enough English to be... More
