I stayed in the Happy House Hotel for a week in July 2010, whilst travelling in El Salvador.
It is an excellent budget hotel, with rooms priced at USD 15-20, and including air-con, cable television and private bathroom, plus free wireless AND a computer that you can use if you have not brought your own.
Happy House Hotel is in a great location near the large Metrocentro shopping centre and the numerous restaurants that are located in the area - there are also a couple of laundrettes within 1 minute walking distance. There is a great bar called La Luna which is about 10 minute walk away, thoroughly recommend that as well, the beers are cheap and the live music on the two nights I went (reggae one night and Cuban salsa the other) was excellent. I felt safe walking back to my hotel after dark.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and helped me find my way around the city and surrounding area by public transport, to the numerous tourist attractions that are located in the outskirts of the city. Similarly, when I caught a cold one day, Berta was extremely helpful in recommending some medicine for me.
I had an awesome week in El Salvador, and my experience at the Happy House Hotel was definitely a large part of the enjoyment. Thoroughly recommend you staying there if you are looking for budget accomodation in San Salvador.
