As a 33 year old traveller, and visted over 20+ hostels, this one did the job. There are many important things to different travelers, so for me, it was: The people that worked there, and the atmosphere. Both were excellent. I had my own room and shared bathroom, and it did the job. If you stay on the bottom floor, the walls are VERY thin, so I didn't get much sleep. But hey, it's a hostel. Would I do this hostel again? Yes. Would I search another hostel just in case? Yes to that too.

I originally booked this hostel for one night only then I moved to a different one in old San Juan. I immediately regretted it. Villa eshta is an amazing hostel with friendly staff and other travelers. They welcomed me in the first night like I had been there all week. It is great location to cafes and bars. Also to the beach. I disliked the hostel I moved to, therefore I cancelled the nights and rebooked at villa eshta! Highly recommend for solo travelers looking to meet people and go out.

Clean enough, really close to the beach and great food. I can't recall that I was notified that there would be no towels available to even rent, so that was a bit disappointing.
