I’m so happy with my decision to volunteer at 1802. I was able to meet guests and volunteers from all over the world while being able to explore San Juan and even other parts of the island (thanks to Carlos who would take the volunteers on cool trips). Carlos was very flexible with shifts and we only worked two days a week. I 100% recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a place to volunteer at while having fun and making great memories at the same time. I will never forget this unique and cool experience and the amazing people I met:)

I couldn’t of had a better experience working & being here! I was surrounded by the best people and will have memories for life. I made friends working here from all over the world. Carlos made me feel welcomed from the very start & took time to take us to the best spots! There was so much free time to get to explore and experience Puerto Rico to the fullest. I would definitely recommend this to any WorldPacker!

Where do I start!!! If your thinking about volunteering here stop thinking and do it! Coming to Puerto Rico is an experience I will remember for the rest of my life. The food, the culture, and the people are amazing. Carlos the host will make you feel welcomed and comfortable the moment you meet him. Carlos took his own time to take the volunteers to cool spots I wouldn’t of found on my own. The work is relaxed and allows the volunteers to have lots of free time. I met loads of different people from around the world who I will definitely be planning more trips with. 10/10 trip!! :)

I definitely recommend 1802 as your worldpackers experience. I had a blast and Carlos is a great host. You will def enjoy it here. After the first day, I got used to everything and my homesickness went away ahah. Carlos and the other volunteers really bring a welcoming and fun place to stay at. I really enjoyed it here!! You get reasonable shifts and tasks and enough time to have fun and venture out.

This almost month in Puerto Rico was one of the best trips of my life! I met a lot of friends and local people, thanks to Carlos and other people (not only from the hostel) I experienced the local culture as much as i could. The energy of this island is incredible and always alive 🌞 I learned a lot about the island, about myself, and made friends for life.
Gracias 🇵🇷♥️
