    This was my first time staying at a hostel, I shared one of the private rooms with my sibling and I felt like it was a comfortable, clean, safe, and welcoming place to stay.

    I've stayed at Villa Eshta on and off for the past 2 months and I can't say anything negative about my experience here. The owner is a great dude and so is the staff. 10 out of 10 would recommend. Its my favorite hostel that I've stayed in in San Juan. (Period)

    Beautiful and safe location. The owner is wonderful, and a pleasure to talk to if you get the chance. Close walk to the beach and some lovely restaurants, and if you rent a scooter it's quite easy to get out to old San Juan cheaper than an Uber or a taxi.

    I had an amazing time staying here at Villa Eshta. The staff was very kind. The rooms were well kept and very clean. The location was perfect. Visiting San Juan Puerto Rico was an overall great and fun experience. Since some restaurants and outdoor activities closed early, it was fun to hang out at Villa Eshta and learn about other people's travels and experiences. I'm definitely going to come back and stay at Villa Eshta again in the near future. Thank you kindly.

    My stay here will forever be very memorable. The staff at this hostel are excellent. They are so kind and go out of there way to make you feel at home. I stayed in a private room and loved the layout. The living room, little kitchen and bedroom are all separated which allows for privacy. I especially loved the big windows allowing for excellent natural light. My only minor issue was with the bathroom, but overall I felt Covid safe.

    This place served its purpose for us. We wanted something close to the beach & not far from the airport for our last two nights. The private room w/ two twin beds was a good size. The bathroom was right across the hall. We stayed on a weekend and the “community quiet hours” didn’t really apply, but we didn’t mind since we mingled with the staff & other guests. I wouldn’t recommend for someone wanting to wake up early & have a room next to the community space. Overall, it worked for us.

    I got there and had to wait 3 hours past check-in to get to my room. The staff was cool, don't get me wrong, just inadequate at doing their job. I mean, I knew what I was getting into when reserving this Hostel. I would highly recommend a private room. We had to leave halfway through our stay because a curtain separated the shared room. On our first night, they had a very heated staff meeting in the common area, and it was very awkward. But is right by some pretty good restaurants!
