I've stayed at the Hotel Tazumal House several times recently, it's nicely designed and decorated, private bathrooms, wifi, air-conditioning, TV, a choice of breakfasts and the staff are eager to help out with anything from taxis to laundry. It is well-located in a quiet area near the San Luis commercial centre, near the National University. There is a choice of... More

This is a great little hotel with the nicest people in the world. There is wifi, air conditioner, tv, breakfast, nice breakfast room, nice lobby and an indoor/outdoor area. The neighborhood is safe. You need to be able to speak some Spanish, though because I don't think any of the staff speaks English. They have a taxi driver that they... More

The hotel is a nice spot in a quite neighboorhood. The staff is kind, but lack of English might make it difficult to communicate. The breakfast is very good and the rooms are a haven with en suite and a/c. The wifi works in rooms too.

I stayed here with a group of friends and my boyfriend. The hotel is in a quiet location and was well worth the price paid. I stayed in a double room upstairs which came with an ensuite and tv. The hotel has a very homely feel with fresh rooms and comfortable beds. Breakfast is included with your room price and... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Great value for $35. Nice quiet street if a little far from downtown but near university. Hot water and AC, very clean. Huge and delicious breakfast included. I can recommend it very highly.

I really liked staying at hostel tazumal. The rooms are modern and clean, and the whole hostel has a good vibe. Its quiet, in a very decent area, which I really liked. Good wireless and nice breakfast. Little patio for some chilling time as well. Thumbs up for the ladies who manage this place!

Cute little hotel, clean rooms, good breakfast, friendly staff. No english but you can get your point across. Only downside is it's rather far away from everything in San Salvador. Driving to most attractions is over an hour with the traffic.

I only stayed at Tazumal for a night so it wouldn't be entirely fair to read this as conclusive, but it's a great little place. A little far out from the Tica terminal i arrived in around San Benito, but set in a spookily quiet neighbourhood in which every house has a security gate. The hotel itself isn't one larger... More
