Casa Frolaz Reviews

Casa Frolaz is a gem of a hostel that offer the services of a boutique hotel with extremely friendly and passionate owners.

The Location

Casa Frolaz is located upstairs of Quattro Estaciones Restaurant, one block from INSA (ask the hostel for directions if you are coming by bus from San Salvador) and about ten from the bus station. The central square is ten blocks further down, so that means it is at least 20 minutes walking from the hostel. All services, including the biggest mall in town, are within a couple of blocks from the house.

Santa Ana is not the most beautiful city outside its central square, but its surroundings are well worth visiting for.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Casa Frolaz offer only one four-bed dorm (with four single beds, no bunk!) and another room with one double and one single bed. When we were there, the dorm could have used a curtain to cover the light coming from the doorway to the terrace, and they needed to fix the other window that did not close fully. Otherwise, everything else was comfortable and functional.

Every room has its own big bathroom with hot water. Towels and soap are provided for free. Guests can also use the restaurant’s bathroom, if there isn’t a free toilet in the hostel.

Common Spaces

While they have their own posh restaurant (Quatro Estaciones, offering Mediterranean food. A place that is more busy at lunch time during the week, as it mainly caters to business people coming from San Salvador), it was never a problem using their big kitchen for guests during our stay, at any time of the day.

The common spaces are decorated with paintings and pieces of art. The garden is also very relaxing, although it more belongs to the restaurant and not the hostel; that means no hammocks, just tables and chairs. And lots of plants. For travellers staying in the dorm, there is also a small terrace accessible from your room.

The Wi-Fi connection is very good. There is a satellite TV with a big screen in the restaurant.

Casa Frolaz is a beautiful place, but the best value are the two brothers who run it. Francisco is a good chef and more quiet. Bruno, who is very knowledgeable and connected for all things El Salvador, is always happy to share information and tips, or enthusiastically inviting you for a coffee tasting. Their English is good enough for every kind of conversation.


The only things that remind you Casa Frolaz is a hostel are the dorm beds and their price. Otherwise, it offer the services of a boutique hotel and the personal attention of a homestay.
