I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel. I was at the hostel in Isla verde (they're newer location). The property was gorgeous. Always very pretty and upkept. This location has a pool and is a 4 min walk from the beach. The rooms were really nice and was the nicest hostel I've stayed at. Work was really good, the host was great at communicating and working with peoples schedules. I would easily come back and work here again.

This is my first Worldpackers experience, and I can't say enough about this place. I may be ruined for all other hostels. I actually got sick right before I was scheduled to leave to come here and they were super understanding and allowed me to change my dates. There is definitely a "family vibe" with the volunteers and staff. There are two locations, and I was assigned to the Isla Verde hostel. It's very clean, beautifully decorated, has comfortable beds, very relaxed, and even has a pool. Every guest I've spoken to has said it is the nicest hostel they've been to. Highly recommend.

My stay here was pretty good, I left another hostel due to bad conditions and Neri, the manager, didn't doubt a minute about giving me the volunteer position. She's amazing. The hostel is really clean, good facilities and great location although if you're looking for the backpacking vibe, this is not the destination. I was there during low season and was boring. But overall good experience

The hostel is really nice, safe and confortable, close to the beach, supermarkets, bars and restaurants. The assigned tasks are easy and enjoyable. Unfortunately, the vibe with other volunteers was not as I expected, but I still had a great time. The communication about the shifts was not very clear at the beginning, but then it got better. Puerto Rico is amazing and local people are really friendly. I would recommend the experience!

Had a great time at the hostel the location was amazing as only a few minutes walk to the beach and avid plane spotters would love it as see planes coming into the nearby airport all day. Was a great hostel and the staff and other volunteers were great to work with. Are given amble time to go explore San Juan and the rest of the island on your time off and made to feel welcome by Neri and the team immediately. It helped especially being in a new country and unsure of the surroundings. I would highly recommend going to the hostel if going to be in San Juan
