The hotel is a nice spot in a quite neighboorhood. The staff is kind, but lack of English might make it difficult to communicate. The breakfast is very good and the rooms are a haven with en suite and a/c. The wifi works in rooms too.

I stayed here with a group of friends and my boyfriend. The hotel is in a quiet location and was well worth the price paid. I stayed in a double room upstairs which came with an ensuite and tv. The hotel has a very homely feel with fresh rooms and comfortable beds. Breakfast is included with your room price and... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Great value for $35. Nice quiet street if a little far from downtown but near university. Hot water and AC, very clean. Huge and delicious breakfast included. I can recommend it very highly.

I really liked staying at hostel tazumal. The rooms are modern and clean, and the whole hostel has a good vibe. Its quiet, in a very decent area, which I really liked. Good wireless and nice breakfast. Little patio for some chilling time as well. Thumbs up for the ladies who manage this place!

Cute little hotel, clean rooms, good breakfast, friendly staff. No english but you can get your point across. Only downside is it's rather far away from everything in San Salvador. Driving to most attractions is over an hour with the traffic.

Between May I needed to let 17 young people in the same hotel with an economic fare near to El Salvador Univesity, so I looked to nicest hotels and I stopped in the Tazumal Hostal. The owner is a pretty nice-energic lady that tried to do her best to have them with all the services and less than $18 pp.... More

We stayed one night at Hotel Tazumal House while stopping over on our way to Peru. All in all, we found the stay very pleasant -- the room was spacioius and comfortable, we enjoyed the nice common areas (a small sitting room outside the guest rooms, a computer for guest use in the lobby, courtyard, etc.) The staff was attentive...

I only stayed at Tazumal for a night so it wouldn't be entirely fair to read this as conclusive, but it's a great little place. A little far out from the Tica terminal i arrived in around San Benito, but set in a spookily quiet neighbourhood in which every house has a security gate. The hotel itself isn't one larger... More

Breakfast delicious. Rooms super cosy, size perfect and super clean! Highly recommended! The area is save and close by Metrocentrum and all busses! It... More

Looking at the map of San Salvador we didn't know where to stray, but we were elated that we chose Hotel Tazumal. The city bus is only a block or two away and was fairly easy to navigate (especially with the assistance of hotel staff). There are a lot of decent restaurants and sights in the area as well.
