Hostel in San salvador near San Benito terminal

My companion and I are staying one night in San Salvador as a layover for our tica bus journey from Managua to Guatemala City. We are having a time of it, finding a conveniently located hostel near the terminal b.c we need to be back to the terminal at 5:15 am. Technically our tickets say the San Carlos terminal but hearing that area is a little sketchy we are going to get off at San Benito and hope we can pick it back up in the morning. Any advice would be most appreciated on hostels, getting to terminals via taxi or it is safe to walk with our packs.

Yes The Meson de Maria right above the terminal is the most convinient but there is another not far from the San Benito area called Joans' Hostel the owner Ana has a facebook page. It is a taxi drive away as is anything except Meson de Maria. On the other side of San Benito You can check out Cumbres del Volcan, the cheapest place to stay in the city with bunk beds at $8/each and regular beds in dorm rooms at $14.

Enjoy El Salvador

the ticabus station in san carlos had private rooms for $12 with bath. i have stayed there a number of times with no problems, just down the street is a couple of places that sell pupusas real cheap. go early and right back to the hotel, it is a seedy neighborhood.
