Ana is a wonderful, helpful and friendly person who made our first visit to San Salvador a very positive experience. There was a book I wanted to buy (in English), so she rang some bookshops until she found one who had it, then reserved it for me under her name. The night we arrived, she had finished her shift, yet she still called the hostel to speak to me in person to welcome me and to ask if there was anything I needed help with. The hostel is Ana's childhhod home and therefore feels homely!
Excellent hostel, staff, rooms, showers, and location!!! Ana was great! Definitely recommend and very close to TicaBus and King Quality in San Benito!
Anna was an absolute delight and so accommodating! She was very welcoming and made it incredibly clear that she was happy to help with any travel within in El Salvador! I ended up staying for 4 nights at the hostel, one of which was because I was ill. The staff made sure to check in with me to see if I needed anything from water or to have them grab something to eat for me- just the sweetest folks! The internet worked great at the hostel and the dorm rooms were a little small, but sufficient!

Best place in San Salvador! Great hostel, amazing owner, reliable and friendly stuff, nice neighbourhood! You don't have to worry about safety and you can easily walk around without worries. Grab a taxi from the airport or Ticabus Station to the hostel. You meet many locals on the street and have good opportunities to get to eat some real Salvadorian food!
Ana and her staff made me feel very welcome and safe she helped me get a cell phone so that I could call locally.very nice place to stay in a nice college area. it would be helpful if you knew basic Spanish!

I can't say enough good things about this hostel. Very clean, beautiful common areas, and an amazing staff. The owner Ana is soooo helpful. Easy to take a bus to the center of the San Salvador. Lots of places to eat nearby.
I want to say, is close to a lot of places, in any direction you need to go. Lots of eating places in the neighborhood, mostly typical salvadorean food, public transportation at a walking distance. Not so bad.
