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


Breakfast could be included. Amazing staff members bit lets be honest nothing to do/see here. The most "exciting" thing that could happen to you, is that you get assaulted: CHECK! Kick them in the b**ls and never let go of ur iphone. Other than that im still alive and hitting the beach today lol safe travels.


No English speaking staff, which seems common during low season. The building is very nice, and the bathroom of the 5 bed dorm is excellent. It is located in a very safe area which may seem boring to some people, but the centre is 1 hour walking or 20 minutes by bus. They are many pages of information put on the walls, which can also be downloaded from the hostel website. ATMs one block away, I felt completely safe here.


Maybe not the most convenient, but it felt like a safe neighbourhood - there's a Crown Plaza hotel near by. The staff were friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and working properly. I appreciated all the common areas - with full-working kitchen, living and dinning area.

Staff member Walter reserved a cab to take us to Ticabus at 4:30 a.m. but when it didn't come we tried to call the company. Failing that we woke him up, he got out of bed and drove us there himself. We were a little nervous about security for the electronics we needed to leave in the dorm room. When we expressed the concern, a staff member offered to lock them up for us. It would be better to have a way we could lock them ourselves and access them without a staff member's help.
