We stayed here 3 nights in the dorm. Francisco waa very attentive, helpful and friendly (as was his brother) and it was good value compared to the other major hostel everyone raves about in Santa Ana... The area is quiet and feels safe, there's a supermarket 10 minutes away, the city centre is a 20 minute walk or you can... More

We stayed here for two nights in April 2015. The best thing about the place is Fransisco and Bruno, the guys running it, who were very helpful. They gave us tips on the local area and directions to the bus station for going by to the Parque Nacional de Volcanes. For us, the location was OK as we only came... More

I stayed at Casa Frolaz for 3 nights from 12-14 Feb 2015. I stayed in the 4-person dorm, and I was the only person in the room during the period of my stay. Therefore, I have sufficient privacy and quietness by paying just USD8 per night. To me, it's kind of weird that there is a double bed in the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 7 nights (was supposed to be only 5 nights) and we had an awesome experience! Fransisco and Bruno were so helpful and caring with everything. We are vegans so we used the kitchen to cook our dinners and it was no problem at all! They were sometimes there to chat with us and... More

We had a stop over in Santa Anna and stayed at Casa Frolaz. I had my credit card skimmed in El Tunco and Bruno let me use the land line to talk to my bank. Bruno and Francisco were incredibly helpful. Their english was great and they bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. They helped arrange our onward... More

Stayed here for two nights with my husband. The hostel is in a good location 20 minutes walk out of the centre of town but the area around is safe & there is a huge supermarket 5 minutes walk away. We were the only guests at the hostel when we stayed & so it was very quiet. The room was... More

We went to Santa Ana and we used it as a base. From there we were going to several places around Santa Ana. This city is very well connected by buses to lakes, Joyas de Ceren, etc. El Salvador is a small country and in one hour or so from Santa Ana you have loads of places to visit. Bruno... More

As others have said, the guys running the place are great! It was the first place I stayed in El Sal and they were really welcoming. There are just two rooms so if you are looking for some peace in Santa Ana, this is your place. It's a bit out of town but it's pretty close to bus station. The... More

The Hostel is spotless clean. The host Francisco is very knowledgeable about El Salvador and a great fella to get to know. The location is about a half hour walk to the center. Shops and a supermarket are near by. I didn't try the food but those who did praised the quality. I can't praise this place enough. Thanks Francisco... More

Hostel? Forget it! This place is a luxury villa and if you are a backpacker, who is used to stay in crowded dormitories in backpacker-oriented hostels, you will think, you got to paradise. The dorm is a large room in the first floor with three beds only, you have a huge private bathroom with big mirror and shower with really... More
