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.

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!!

    Wallit, the owner, was SO NICE and extremely accommodating! There were different prices listed on a couple of sites, and when I got there he adjusted everything to the lowest price. He was very personable and the hostel is in a great location, just a few minutes from the beach and surrounded by great restaurants. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean. There's plenty of space to sit outside, and he really made me and my mother feel at home!

    Just to start off, this place is more than what I expected. Looking last minute for a stay in San Juan after driving from Aguadilla earlier that day & spending the day getting to know the city, last minute pricing for Villa Eshta was exceptionally amazing. Upon getting there, the service was phenomenal & very comforting. Front desk service helped us getting through even through late hours & the place itself, speaks for a soothing, calming stay for San Juan. I highly recommend this place.

    Villa eshta backyard decor is beyond beautiful. So chilled. I love the fact that the room (i stayed at private then dorm) both were exceptional clean!💛. The people, especially the owner was super chilled. They have 3 cats there. The orange one is so sweet😥. Oh it so close to ocean park beach and walgreens is right across the street. Eshta is definitely my go to when i go to san juan.🙌🙌🙌

    My Girlfriend and I stayed in the private room for 6 nights and were extremely happy with our stay. The facilities are very clean, the bed was very comfy and the staff was excellent. There was even a wonderful lady named Gloria that kept everything clean and functioning properly (including the dishes! 🙌🏼). The owner Walid is also very accommodating and is always trying to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. They also have a beautiful courtyard to hang out and eat. 10/10 would recommend!!!

    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

    I would highly recommend Villa Eshta for anyone visiting San Juan. It is super close to the beach as well as lots of great restaurants, cafes, and bars. The hostel had a friendly atmosphere and I felt very safe and secure there. It was also just a short Uber ride away from both Old San Juan and the airport.

    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.

    The staff was very nice and friendly, however I had to talk to the owner about the housekeeping because they weren't cleaning the bathrooms. The atmosphere was great, very peaceful. The water pressure was an issue for me all I felt I had to take longer showers to get all the dirt and soap off me. My dorm didn't have hot water, It didn't bother me, the days were so hot the cool water was actually nice. I loved that the beach was not far at all (5-7 minute walk) and it was close to everything

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