This is a nice place. The owners are great and very helpful and it's all quite relaxed. The price is also OK at $8 a dorm or doubles from $20. It is very very quiet but that is San Salvador in general... Where it could improve is the chill out areas. There is a TV with cable and DVD player... More

I had a real luck with this place, because I needed a place with good wifi, what's not that common in central America, and here the wifi works really well. Apart for that, it's clean, not expensive, calm, hot water, in a safe area (though it's not center, but the center is more dangerous, so I've heard), it's really like... More

I put 5 stars because I actually don't have anything to criticize in this hostal. They were kind, helpful, well-organized. The hostal itself is very nice, the kitchen is perfectly equipped, the rooms are nice and common areas very comfy.

I stayed here for 1 night. It's a nice place with very good facilities hot showers, good WiFi, big TV, very packed kitchen. It's in a good area that's pretty safe. It's in the NW of San Salvador and a bit far outside the centro historico but it's close to buses that go directly. Nice place to stay.

The hostel is located in a safe neighbourhood. I walked a few times alone at night. The staff is friendly and helps you with where to go and how to get there. Made some friends with the other travellers. The food around the area is expensive. There is a grocery store about a 15-minute walk away. You can take the... More

Sorry about the washroom; usually we clean every day, so I don't know what happened. But glad you and a good time. BTW, there are pupusas at our local little pupuseria for 35 cents two blocks away. Thanks for staying with us, and we hope you can come back some day. Malcolm, Walter, Sara, Brenda y Christian More

Rooms are great as are the bathrooms and there is good wifi available. The owner and staff working there are really friendly and helpful. Just don't expect to come here and party, it is a bit of a family vibe. Very safe also. In a pretty good location to access the rest of the city
