Wow! what a great place to stay.... very clean and quiet. no squeeky floors or doors and located in a pretty quiet area away from bustling traffic. The owner was very nice and had vast knowledge of the city and things to do around the city. the staff are also very friendly and if you speak english your in luck .... The beds were really comfy too and bathrooms clean and kitchen clean as clean can get. Nice patio and living area to hang out.


Very beautiful and cosy hostel in the centre of San Salvador. It's fully equiped with musical instruments, movies, great kitchen. I loved it and just looked like the kind of place decorated by a mum.


Sara and Malcolm (the owner) are wonderful...If you wand a peaceful place to chill out then Cumbres Del Volcanis the place...


Good hostel but a little bit difficult to find and a bit far from anything to do. It is very easy, however to take a bus anywhere and it is a very safe neighbourhood!

We reached to this hostel at 2 am from International airport. They quickly let us in and sleep without asking for the due amount. If they improve cleanliness that would be great. In one sentence what you pay is what you get.


Great hostel!! The owners are very friendly and helpful, and the hostel is located in a good area. We loved staying there!!!


I could open the locked door from the outside.. Wouldnt call that secure. It says location is close to the ticabus.. it's not. It's not a 10 minutes walk.. We had to take a taxi because we came at odd hours.. So either give better directions or be more honest about location.. didn't stay more than a night so can't really say much about the other things. But did find it clean. The atmosphere were lacking.

Sara is amazing and extremely accommodating. San Salvador is a little intimidating with security guys with guns everywhere but we felt safe at this hostel. Muchas gracias!


Friendly staff! Our bedroom was great. Provided sufficient and clear information about transportation. It would be nice if the hostel is little closer to shoppings and restaurants.


Everything was perfect.


Great little hostel in a good location. Close to the Ticabus station and good restaurants. Great staff and a very clean and big kitchen. Nice terrace to relax and a chill vibe, defiantly would recommend for anyone passing through San Salvador
