Our Story

I n 2010 when I retired from my work in California, my wife and I opened Hostal Cumbres del Volcán in San Salvador the capital of El Salvador where my wife was born. We bought and remodeled a beautiful old house in the dynamic business, restaurant and nightlife neighborhood of Colonia Escalón. In 2015 we bought our 2nd location in the bohemian neighborhood of Colonia Flor Blanca, closer to the historic center of San Salvador. The historic Lopez mansion was in dire need of restoration, which we had a wonderful time completing in 2016, opening in 2017.

Our goal is to offer home-llike accommodations, convenient location, and friendly service at an economical price. We offer a mix of private rooms (from $20.00 to $50.00) and shared hostel dorm rooms (from $8.00 per person). Both of our facilities offer free coffee & water, garage parking (as available), low cost breakfasts, free WiFi, hot water in all rooms, use of our fully equipped kitchen by all guests, living/dining areas (with cable TV, DVD movies, guitar, keyboard), terrace, and patios. We love to give travel advice about our beautiful and friendly country. Just email us at info@cumbresdelvolcan.com and we will send you our free guide.
