We have only spent a night there because it was just above our budget (but still not expensive, 25$ for two in the room with private bathrooms and a wonderful view). Owners are really nice and the dog Oso is very quiet and friendly.

Stayed: January 2014, traveled as a couple

We spent 3 nights here. The views are something you can spend all day admiring. The owners are real decent people. We asked for a nearby laundromat and they insisted we do our laundry there for no charge. Our spanish is not good, but we would have loved to chat more with them. Their dog Osso is a big baby! Never mind his skull and crossbones collar.
The room was ok. The showerhead was missing, but got us clean anyway. There was room to sleep 4. One light served the entire room, including the bathroom. It was sufficient light, though. The best thing about the room was also it's one downfall. The view through the unscreened window let's in a fierce amount of bugs. However you can go onto the balcony and lie in the hammock for an even better view. Even though it is on the edge of town, it is 3 blocks from the center. These are real nice folks who have a few sweet rooms to rent. Ours was $20, which means you can get pupusas on the square! Look for the sidewalk stall. They are the best in northcentral el sal. Closed on wednesdays.

I believe I payed $8.00 for a private room (no views from the room), at the Vista Lago hostel. the views from their back porch are beautiful, probably the best among hostels in town. The family which runs the hostel (guests stay in another part of their home, which is quite large) are very friendly and have a genuine feel about them. I took the guided tour offered by the patriarch of the family (definitely a character and a sense of humor) to hike the Salto El Cubo waterfall. Breakfast was included and filling. I was only at the Vista Lago one day because my travel plans didn't allow for more time, but I felt welcomed there and could imagine returning.

Room Tip: they are all about the same.
