Hostal La Casa Verde

Santa Ana, El Salvador

Owner Carlos Batarse

Price: $25 night for a double

Very clean, well organized hostal

This Hostal La Casa Verde had everything, including a pool, massage chairs, and a roof top terrace for a relaxing sunset view.

Could it get any better than this?

This sparkling pool had Jacuzzi jets. Hammocks are hung all throughout the property.

The owner relaxing a bit

Carlos is the owner of the Casa Verde Hostal and he will be sure your every need is attended to. I found this hostal to be one of the best equipped and had the cleanest kitchen I have seen in years.  Notice the flat screen TV above him.

Hanging out in the cool pool

World travelers gather to cool down in the pool and it's like a meeting of the United Nations. The girls on the left are from Holland, the guy is El Salvadorian, the girl on the right is Spanish and we are from the USA. People of all ages stay here at the hostal, it's not just for the young.

Roof top view of Santa Ana

Our hostal had a roof top terrace and it was used as a "chill out place." This was a great place to watch the sunset.

This room was $25 a night

Each bed had its own individual fan, and there were well built storage shelves on which to place one's gear. Fluffy white towels were waiting for each guest, and there was maid service daily. Ensuite bathrooms had hot water.


Well stocked kitchen

This kitchen was immaculate and fully equipped. There were gas ranges, recycle bins, and spices provided too. In the refrigerators you simply put your name on your food bag so there would be no misunderstanding.

Honor system marks on the white board

 A full array of beer and wine was available on the honor system. Here you see individual names and marks.

Open air community dining room

One could sit and chat here, have a meal or connect on the internet which was available throughout. There were laundry facilities available, WIFI in the rooms, hammocks everywhere and special "chill-out rooms."

Another room to meet other guests

Massage tools were available in this room as well as books and magazines.


Street view from hostal

The rooftop terrace gave a birds eye view of the surrounding area.

Indoor-outdoor living

This hostal was incredibly clean and was efficiently run. Having the laundry facilities here made it easy to catch up from traveling a few days. Highly recommended.
