    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.

    This is my go to when I arrive in Puerto Rico before heading out to the inner island, always a great experience! The ocean is right nearby in a gated community, staff is always great and it's clean with lots of artwork and murals. Adding in the pandemic factor, they take it quite seriously, masks, sanitizer, they follow the guidelines. Close to the airport, restaurants and my car rental place. Worth it!!

    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.

    Awesome place to stay, I was a bit surprised at how many people spoke english! It was certainly nice to be able to speak my native language more often again as I mostly am in Mexico City. I really enjoyed the stay here although I will admit the bunk beds were very very uncomfortable, for a tall guy like myself its not a suitable sleeping arrangement to stay in the bunk beds but that is really my only issue, everything else was tremendous and the people were awesome! definitely will return!!

    Facilities-wise, everything good 6/10. Ambience and people-wise, 10/10. Staff AMAZING, other travelers AMAZING In the midst of this COVID era, it felt like a home/oasis in a crazy world to meet other people still traveling, connecting, and living in love, not fear. I did my research for hostels in San Juan and selected this one based off the reviews I read and digested. I am so happy I did and highly recommend.

    Very Good

    Location is best part: 5 minute walk to beach in quiet, nice Ocean Park neighborhood, local but close to touristy condado. So many good restaurants in walking distance. Mostly Friendly staff, some aloof. Great courtyard. Party vibes. The main cons: really uncomfortable mattresses, and few electric plugs. We had two plugs for 6 beds. Only three plugs in commons areas that everyone was fighting for. My phone stayed at 25% entire time. Leave valuables at home. No grocery store close.

    We stayed in the private bedroom, which came with our own bathroom. If you’re low maintenance and looking to crash just 1 or 2 nights, this is the place for you. I don’t recommend sleeping on their spring beds for more than 2 nights. Staff was super friendly and easy to chat with.
