Villa Eshta

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 in the streets of San Juan.

We harvest our own basil/oregano in our garden, we practice Spanish/English with locals, and we encourage artists to let out their creativity with some mural paintings. There's heaps to 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.

No words to describe this volunteering other than AMAZING.
The hostel is beautiful, located close to the beach, supermarket & restaurants. The hours and work are super fair and you get the perfect amount of help and responsibility. You get trained by other volunteers. Walid is an amazing host, always makes sure you feel comfortable and safe.

This was my first Worldpackers experience and I couldn't have wished for a better one! The location of the hostel is very central and it's 5 min away from the beach. Walid is an amazing host, he always makes sure that everyone is comfortable. He trusts his volunteers and gives you enough responsibility, but at the same time he's very involved and will help you with any question. On Sundays there's a big party, which can be quite busy but it's a lot of fun! There was plenty of time to explore San Juan. The culture and people in Puerto Rico are amazing and I 100% recommend volunteering here!

I had the best month in puerto rico volunteering at villa eshta. Walid is a great host, you get trained by the other volunteers when you first arrive and the work is really well organised so you know exactly whats expected of you. You can go to him with any problems and he’ll always help you out and have your back. It was an amazing first worldpackers trip and i’d have loved to be able to stay longer. I would 100% recommend!!
