Property Description

Villa Eshta is a hostel made by travelers, for travelers! We are perfectly located in the heart of the very animated Calle Loiza, the upcoming avenue in San Juan. It’s famous for its unique combination of local and international vibes, full of bars, thrift stores, restaurants, clubs, dancing bars and even after-party spots. Across from the hostel we have a 24h pharmacy, a landmark bakery Kasalta, and a famous pizzeria.

We are exactly two blocks from the sands of Ocean Park Beach which is a local beach full of ice-cream, jelly-shots, empanadas, beer and water vendors.

All rooms and Dorms include: Fresh linen, High speed internet, AC, Lockers in the dorms (you must bring your own padlock),

Now imagine yourself hanging-out on our outdoor patio in enchanted Puerto Rico, a minute away from the beach, drinking an aged Rum, eating some hummus and falafels, smoking a delicious local cigar, while listening to classical French music before heading to a salsa party!!

    I loved staying in Villa Eshta. Both the staff and the guests are all cool and friendly. There is a nice courtyard where we chilled and talked every night. You can meet a lot of people and learn a lot from each other. The location is perfect. Two minutes walk to the beach, a short uber ride from and to the airport, to Condado beach, to old San Juan, La Placita, etc. I went there by myself but did all the travelling with people I met at the hostel, and made some wonderful friends there.

    Two friends and I had an awesome stay here. We really enjoyed socializing in the courtyard, and the location in the neighborhood. Local food spots and restaurants are less than a block away, a Walgreens is right across the street, and a really nice beach is a 5 minute walk away. Two of us stayed in a private, and one stayed in the dorms. The rooms were comfortable with good A/C. I would recommend to anybody looking for a comfortable stay, looking to make a few friends along the way.

    JR the receptionist was awesome and super friendly. The location of the hostel is great too: close to the beach, Santurce bars and restaurants, and the airport. There is a nice common area to hang out in. Would (and probably will) stay again

    The location isn’t bad for not being in downtown San Juan. It was very close to the beach which is nice. The facilities aren’t new/updated but they are cleaned daily. There wasn’t much of an atmosphere but that might have just been the timing I was there. The WiFi isn’t the greatest so that is something I would recommend getting upgraded. I would stay again.

    Amazing location, really easy to get in the main points of San Juan. Nice staff, all the time they are up to help us. I meet nice people in my stay, which is another good point. They offers place to cook and a fridge, so you can save some money from food. At night is really comfy, they have a good AC. Bad point: when we stay there we had a big problem with the water, to take a shower, to fresh the toilet, and it was a pain for us. But other than this, no complaints.

    Everything was okay, except that the internet on the second floor was really bad, and I had to use my data 😔
