Hostel $18-$20/ night 6 per room dorm.
Andy/Gadget: Could you have negotiated for lower rates? That seems pretty pricey. Plus, you were the only one there, I would think you could get a much cheaper rate.
I saw this walking around Guatemala City, where you had high walls and armed guards both behind the walls and walking the street. In San Salvador, there were armed guards in ice cream shops and also roaming the entrance of the Sheraton El Presidente. Remember both countries had 30-40 year civil wars and the violent crime never stopped. Also the deportation of gang members from the US, has increased crime.
