I loved staying at the hostel! I had so much fun with my fellow volunteers and also with the guests. The work is easy and the hours are not to many, so I had a lot of time to explore the island aswell. I also loved that I could go visit the other location.

Overall, my experience was positive, and I would recommend it. The property requires 20 hours of reception work, four five-hour shifts per week, in exchange for free housing (very reasonable). The Isla Verde location is just a 2-minute walk from the beach and has a pool. However, the hostel isn't as social as others I've stayed at, and I distinctly felt like an exchange employee, given that most of the staff is local & paid rather than volunteer. I sought an opportunity to meet new people and I primarily achieved this by making friends with guests, which the other employees didn't do much.

The hostel was a welcoming space that prioritizes cleanliness and guest satisfaction. During my stay, I enjoyed interacting with guests and learning to use the property management software. Exploring the hostel's operations was a valuable learning experience. Thanksgiving there felt like being part of a warm, embracing family. For an enriching Worldpackers stay in San Juan, this place with its exceptional staff is highly recommended and I would definitely come back again !

For my first Worldpackers experience, the hostel set the bar really high. Neri along with other staff such as Diana, Henry and Sara we're super awesome and excepting, and always willing to assist with anything I may have needed; from learning how to use the computer at reception, to putting the washing machine on the right settings, they were always super helpful. The location was also amazing and super close to a lot of local beaches, bars, and restaurants and the locals were super cool as well, and always willing to show me around.
