I recently stayed at Hostal Cumbres del Volcan for a couple of nights. It is very basic but also a budget accomodation. It had a very easy going atmosphere and I enjoyed meeting the other people staying at this hostal. The highlight were Roxana and Juliam who work there. They treated me like family and could not do enough to make my stay enjoyable. I hope to go back to San Salvador and I would certainly stay here again.

Turns out I made a reservation at this place, after having seen the reviews. It was a last minute thing (4 hours in advance), but I made sure the reservation went through. When me and my girlfriend arrived, I understand it was late, but it was no reason to treat us the way they did. I showed them I had booked my reservation through my mobile device. However, they insisted I had no reservation and was literally kicked out of the place. We tried to wait inside since it was 12am and the area is a very dark and dangerous. We only wanted to for our uber, but they left us outside in the street waiting, even after I had already made my booking. Despite the fact we were very respectful to them, they insulted us by kicking us out to the street in the middle of the night.

Response from HostalCumbresDelVolc, Owner at Hostal Cumbres del Volcan
Responded 24 Dec 2017
I am more confused by this than upset. So far as I can tell nothing like this happened and there was no guest who showed up late on this date. Further, we do not have an agreement with TripAdvisor for making reservations. We do have agreements with Booking.com and HostelWorld, but we had no last minute reservations from them for the 22nd and the review would have been posted with them, not TripAdvisor. I wonder if this guest accidentally went to the wrong hotel, or his Uber driver took him to the wrong address. We are not in a bad neighborhood; we are in one of the best neighborhoods in San Salvador, across the street from the residence of the Mexican Ambassador and one block from one of San Salvador's largest and best hotels, the Crowne Plaza El Salvador. Everything points to his going to the wrong hotel. If the guest sees this response, please write me at so I can find out exactly what happened: info@cumbresdelvolcan.com Thank you.

Well, only stayed for an overnight of around 8-10 hours (enough to grab a bunk in the shared room and sleep). No actual complaints, just wish the greeting was a little warmer. I discovered theres a community board or 2 of information for the local area, and the place does give free wifi. Beds are good enough and sheets are clean. Would be better if there was a better option for getting onto the top bunk without waking the bunkmate on the bottom. Local area seemed ok, didnt get too much sense of danger and seemed as though there were local clubs in close area. Note: on arrival, theres a 10% commission fee added to check-in if paying with card.

Awesome location, clean, amazing customer service and all around pretty good value. Sara is generous and does a great job keeping this place running. A great example for other hostels to follow in the city and lots of info about the country too.

This is a lovely friendly place to stay, in a very safe and upmarket part of San Salvador in Escalon. However there is a building site behind the hotel which carries on working until midnight. The noise is dreadful. What a shame.....

Great value in a pricey area, lowest prices we could find, six bed dorms with bathroom were ten dollars, you can reserve a spot without payment if you email them directly instead of using hostal world. Friends said the doubles were nice. Big DVD selection for rainy nights and a large information wall with things to see and do. From bus terminal Oriente I walked six ish blocks to get bus 52, about 15 minutes and out on 85th. About $7 in a cab. We were there to be close to El Salvador divers for our trip to the volcano lake.

after speaking with the owner, he gives us the opportunity to come and stay at his new property which cant officially been listed yet.. and we were extremely grateful for the opportunity. $7/night in a 4 bed dorm that we got ourselves, a double sized kitchen that will rival any hostel kitchen you will find on your travels, and plenty of chill out spaces in the naturally Cool common spaces. excellent showers with steaming hot water should you require it. Located right near the National Stadium, its easy walking distance to the MetroCentre, Zona Rosa, a Supermarket, and the Historic centre if you didn't want to take the bus that leaves from outside the door. The guys running were great, helping us with all our transport related enquires from getting from A to B, to where the local El Tunco bus left from (about a 5 minute walk from the hostel). Wifi is great, perfect for Skype, and had the chance to Stream some live sport with ease. As i would expect with most places in san salvador, it was extremely quiet, with only 1 long term there currently, and another 2 couples that came passing through, and even when it gets listed, i expect it to stay the same, but was fantastic as we were using san salvador as a relax spot, so the peace and quiet was perfect.

This is a nice place. The owners are great and very helpful and it's all quite relaxed. The price is also OK at $8 a dorm or doubles from $20. It is very very quiet but that is San Salvador in general... Where it could improve is the chill out areas. There is a TV with cable and DVD player - great! But the chairs are all hard wood and even though there are one or two cushions it is very uncomfortable. They need big comfy sofas that people can snuggle up in and relax, work on your laptop, watch a film, read a book etc. There is also a small patio but there are no hammocks which is a shame. A hammock or too also helps people relax more. Out back is a tiny unkept garden which is fine for a cigerette but not much else. So not an amazing place, but a quiet relaxed place that will suffice for a few days. I would probably look elsewhere if I went back, but that's not saying this place is bad as it isn't. Note: I had to renew my visa and the owner actually would have come with me to the office to help with this (as is the requirement...you need a local reference). That was awesome! However I argued my case with the visa office and we did not need to go down that route - still pretty awesome service from the hostel!

I had a real luck with this place, because I needed a place with good wifi, what's not that common in central America, and here the wifi works really well. Apart for that, it's clean, not expensive, calm, hot water, in a safe area (though it's not center, but the center is more dangerous, so I've heard), it's really like staying in a home of a family. The people here are nice. I liked the place and had a good rest. Thanks!

I put 5 stars because I actually don't have anything to criticize in this hostal. They were kind, helpful, well-organized. The hostal itself is very nice, the kitchen is perfectly equipped, the rooms are nice and common areas very comfy.
