Sunzal Point Surf Lodge and Retreat, La Libertad, El Salvador; this was quite the experience. The surfers seem to be having a lot of fun, but the beach is a walk away and very rocky so no swimming there. You have to walk over the rocks to get to a sandy beach for swimming. The Wi-Fi did not work for...

Empty concrete block rooms reflect the lack of imagination expressed in all other areas of hostel. We stayed in one big room with two single beds. One mattress was ok, but the other one was really old and uncomfortable. The highlight of our stay was Baltazar (the manager maybe owner) waking us up at three in the morning trying to...

Stayed here for 4 nights. The hostel is located steps from playa el sunzal and a 5 minute walk from the tourist hub of el tunco. We had an amazing time in this quiet hostel. Extremely safe, clean rooms, and comfortable beds. Two thumbs up to Balta who is the man!

What a great find. Baltazar runs the perfect chill out hostel. He speaks English and knows his way around. He also offers tours all over El Salvador and surf lessons as well. This hostel is comfortable and relaxed. The location is perfect- close to everything (Tunco & Libertad) yet far enough away to be secluded and private. Right across the...

Stayed here a few nights and it was really nice. Balta was incredible and was very easy to become friends with. The dorm was huge and they had lots of fans. They had a locker and it felt pretty safe. I don't surf, and the beach isn't that awesome for chillin and swimming. It's pretty rocky and kinda hard to...

This place has everything you need for a pleasant stay at a reasonable price. It is about 200 meters to the beach ,set back a bit in the jungle. It is very quiet. Now, we were there during a slow time so I think it may be a happening place during the busier season. There are surf boards and boogie...
