Property Description

Hostal Cumbres del Volcan, Flor Blanca is a small friendly hotel owned by a retired American and his Salvadoran wife. Our facility was formerly the historic Lopez Mansion which we have beautifully and faithfully restored with new hot & cold plumbing, and 4 new bathrooms in addition to the original 3. We offer both large private rooms with en-suite bath, private rooms with shared bath, and economical shared dorm rooms with bunk beds. All guests have access to free WiFi and use of the fully equipped kitchen, spacious living room with cable TV, DVD player, piano, guitar, and several lounging and dining areas including the patio and roof terrace with a view of the San Salvador volcano. Laundry facilities, off-street parking, and breakfasts are all available.

We have four private rooms, two with private bath, and two with shared bath. Our two upstairs private rooms have balconies. We have six very economical shared dorm rooms. Four are large with four bunk beds in each room, and two are smaller with 2 bunk beds in each room. The dorm rooms all share four completely new bathrooms, all with hot water. All of our rooms are named after the volcanos of El Salvador. All guests have the use of our public facilities including the fully equipped kitchen (dishes, pots and pans, refrigerator, stove with oven etc), living room with acoustic piano, guitar, smart cable TV, DVD player with movies, stereo system, informal living area around the internal patio, rear garden, and roof terrace with a view of the San Salvador Volcano. Local bus #4 connects the two principal local bus terminals Occidente and Oriente and stops directly i front of our entry. We have garage parking for 2 vehicles, and off street parking for 3 more. Breakfast and Laundry service are available.

We are in a safe and convenient location 1.5 kilometres west of the Centro Historico, across from the Gimnasio Nacional and 5 blocks from Estadio Magico Gonzalez. Both venues host local sports and international concerts. There is a bus stop right at our front door, and many low cost eating places are within easy walking distance. The Centro Historico is a 20 minute walk. We are less than an hour from the beach and surfing, 30 minutes up to the cool San Salvador Volcano, 1 hour to Lago de Coatepeque (one of the most beautiful crater lakes in the world), 1 hour to the beautiful colonial town of Suchitoto or the cool highland coffee region of the Ruta de las Flores. San Salvador has wonderful restaurants with food from all over the world and great nightlife. It also has some surprisingly good museums of art, history and culture. Our neighbourhood of Colonia Flor Blanca was for many years the finest residential area in the capital and is filled with magnificent historic mansions. Today the area is a more bohemian place and most of the larger historic mansions have been re-purposed as cultural offices, NGOs and businesses.

    The location is just perfect with a bus stop just in front. The hostel is very clean. The kitchen is just amazing with everything u need. Beside that they give free filter water and free coffee. The staff is very, very helpful, specially Stefani. The only 2 things that I didn’t like are: the dorm was a bit dark and the locker are outside the room. I really recommend this hostel. Is a good place to be, rest and organized your trip.

    Lovely staff - Walter helped me set up a local SIM card and Malcolm took me on a tour around the Zona Rosa. If you want to know anything about San Salvador seriously just ask Malcolm - everything from local gossip to civil war history to where the best nightlife is. He also has a big packet of tour information he's compiled for the country he's happy to share. The kitchen was large and well equipped, the beds were comfy, and the hostal is near buses to get to your next destination.

    Many mosquitoes at night, there could be air conditioned or a fan. The rest of the hostel is perfect.

    Very good hostel, very good staff. Not THE BEST hostel I’ve stayed at, but felt totally and completely sufficient with good facilities, and my impression is probably colored by the fact that there’s just not too much to do in San Salvador. I’d definitely recommend this hostel - but if I found myself in San Salvador again, in all honestly I’d probably look for a different one just for a change of scenery.

    Nice quiet Hostal with friendly staff located near Causcatlan park which is good to hangout in. Walking distance to city attractions. Approx 30min walk from bus #129 final stop and 20-30mins walk to Terminal Occidente. Bus #102A to El Tunco can be caught near the park. The women's 6-bed dorm was spacious with comfortable mattresses but was a little hot with one small fan and the bathroom (with hot shower) ventilating into the dorm room. No lockers in this dorm. Street food and comedors close by.

    It was ok. Expected a bit better atmosphere due to the other reviews. Might have been because it was off-season though. However what we really didn’t like was how they keep their dog. It’s still a puppy quite big though already. And he’s on a way too small leash attached to his way to small house. Barley can make a step out of it or lay in his house. Therefore he keeps barking all day long which is understandable but also very annoying. We really felt sorry for the dog.

    It could have been nice. Cons: * The corner of the window was broken and the mosquitos knew it! * One small fan for a 4 person room * The don't offer a key, so at night you have to wake up the personnel to get in. I did this at 2 am, and the woman on duty was very angry with me * I wanted to stay 1 more evening, and the woman lied to me by telling me they were all booked. The website & not seeing new guests revieled her lie Pros: * The owner sounds like a caring helpful guy * Great location
