My girlfriend and I received amazing help from José and the La Sombra team considering we turned up at about 2.30am in the morning from Léon. In the morning I met José and was offered coffee and town/local surf information to get us out on the water ASAP.
We stayed one night in a private room which I believe is relatively new and was nice at a reasonable price. Because we didn't book ahead the hostel was fully booked on the next night (Saturday) but Manuel and José organized a room for us in the hostel next door so we didn't have to move very far.
We came back and stayed in a 4 bed dorm room for the next two nights at La Sombra to save our budget and for only $6 per night it was an incredible saving on our previous night at the other hostel.
La Sombra is a 30 second walk to the beach and a 2 minute walk to the shops.
During the high season make sure to book for the Friday and Saturday nights! Epic party night on Saturdays as the locals come from all over El Salvador to get loose.
