Perhaps my mistake.. this hostel was nowhere near the city centre and the staff (although very sweet) didnt speak a word of English. I was the only guest for the 3 nights I stayed here, so was pretty lonely. Room was nice (once the lock was fixed) even if very basic. Future guests need to be confident taking public transport or have basic Spanish skills.

Great location! Bus stops are very close and you are right by the three big malls of San Salvador. Staff was very helpful in helping me plan trips around the city. Facilities were nice - I especially loved the thick ply toilet paper! Showers are wonderful. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't breakfast included, but there are cafes on the same street with cheap breakfast. Would stay here again and recommend it.
