We are a charming hostel located right next to the beach in beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico. We are currently going through a transitional phase and updating a lot of our units and modifying some procedures.
Come help make a difference in an evergrowing community. We are located one block away from the up-and-coming Calle Loiza (Loiza Street) - full of eateries, bars, supermarkets, fruit stands, restaurants, and cafes. Most things are within walking distance, or a very cheap Uber ride away. Check out the iguanas flooding the streets of San Juan.
We harvest our own basil/oregeno in our massive garden, we practice Spanish/English with locals, and we encourage artists to let out their creativity with some mural paintings. On Tuesdays our neighbors down the road provide by donation yoga classes. There's heaps to be do, and so much to learn in terms of Puerto Rican culture/history/museums/cuisine.
We are social and familiar. We like to make all our staff and guests feel part of a community, so in the evening we all hang out in the patio and later there is always the opportunity to explore Calle Loiza together.
We know as a volunteer you are away from home, so any necessity you may have, feel free to communicate it to either the manager or the owner. We always make our best to make Villa Eshta a home.
