We got a taxi from the train station. We had been advised not to get off the train at the last station but to get the station before that. The taxi ride was necessary but not too expensive. Hostal Sara is between the Plaza Mayor and the University. ie it was very central for all the main sights. It was down a narrow road with a few shops and cafes, bars and eating places. The Hostal is a whole building - with a manned reception and a lift. It was wonderful. The room was very nicely decorated and a decent size. The beds were comfortable. It was clean. There were chairs and a desk, bedside table and wardrobe. There was also a fridge with a bottle of mineral water. There was heating, which was on, as it was cold outside. The bathroom was lovely, decorated with very pretty tiles. It had a full size bath with shower and a bidet. No breakfast was provided but there were places to get it nearby. Our room was not noisy except for a few minutes in the middle of one night when it sounded like the rubbish collection lorry was in action. The staff were just so helpful and nice. I find it hard to make any criticisms at all. Perhaps only one tiny thing - there was an electrical air freshener in the bathroom which produced far too much smell - over powering.
We ate several times at the wonderful Patio Chico which is almost next door.
Instead of Wi - Fi they give you a cable (no charge) and there is a socket in the room to connect to your computer - Lan. It was very easy and gave a very good connection. But perhaps it might not work with an i-pad without a place to plug in the cable!
I would certainly stay here again

Room Tip: I think one can pay extra for a kitchen. This would be a great thing to do if staying longer than a couple of days. There is a good supermarket near by

Beautiful location for exploring Salamanca, only 200 m from the Plaza Mayor. The pension is situated in a lively street. Rooms in the front can be noisy late at night. The rooms are very well equipped. The family and staff are very friendly and service minded, but they should improve their skills in foreign languages.

A lovely stay, just perfect. Nice, central, comfortable, spotlessly clean hostal. Staff extraordinarily friendly and helpful. Excellent value for money.

We travelled to visit our daughter who is spending a year in the University of Salamanca. This was a great budget option: a room in the centre of town, looking down on the street, (it was not too noisy) beside the House of Shells. Not a hotel as such - no restaurant or bar or sitting area - but lots of bars and cafes around for breakfast and other meals. Would highly recommend if you just want a nice room to sleep in. Staff were extremely kind and helpful, my daughter was ill and with their almost non existant English and my poor Spanish and a good dictionary we communicated and they gave me great information and advice. Gracias.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking onto the street

I looked at several options before choosing Hostal Sara. It was Holy Week (before Easter), and every place had drastically reduced rates. We had room 304 with a mini kitchen and balcony (with a partial view of the Cathedral). The hostel is lovely, gorgeous wood floors, blue and white tiled bathrooms (the shower in our room was quite small), and the furniture is new and charming. The hostal was built in 2005, and they have a modern elevator that makes things easier. There is no lobby, but you are always greeted by receptionists. Although they don't speak English, they are friendly and accommodating. This place is great, and I recommend it highly.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room with a fridge
