Eshta: A slang Egyptian word meaning “cool” or “sweet”!

Villa Eshta is a hostel made by travelers, for travelers!
We are perfectly located in the heart of the very animated Calle Loiza, the upcoming avenue in San Juan. It’s famous for its unique combination of local and international vibes, full of bars, thrift stores, restaurants, clubs, dancing bars and even after-party spots. Obviously within walking distance!

On top of all that, we are exactly two blocks from the sands of Ocean Park Beach, the best one in town by the way! This beach is packed with ice-cream, jelly-shots, empanadas, beer and water vendors. The area is very safe. Whichever you need to go to the Placita, Isla Verde, Condado, the airport or Old San Juan, from our location, it’s either a direct bus ride or a few minutes bike ride. And guess what? We have a bike rental shop at the corner of our street!

Across from the hostel we have a 24h pharmacy that sells everything including groceries, cigarettes and wines, and a landmark bakery Kasalta. To our left there is a McDonalds, and to the right Pirillo, a famous pizzeria that serves food until 2:00 AM!

We offer every type of accommodation for any kind of traveller:
One-bedroom suites (two twin or one queen-size bed), with private full bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, living area with a sofa bed and a dining table.
Private rooms with private bathroom and a shared fully equipped kitchen.
Dorms: We offer a 6-bed mixed dorm, and one 4-bed Girls dorm. All dorms have full bathroom. There is an equipped kitchen in the girl’s dorm, and the guests in the mix dorm have access to the kitchen shared with the private rooms.
All of our guests share the outdoor patio for barbecues/aperitifs, and a parking spot inside when available.

All rooms include: Fresh linen and bath towel, High speed internet, AC, Lockers in the dorms (you must bring your own padlock), Access to a fully equipped kitchen, Full bathroom.

Now imagine yourself hanging-out on our outdoor patio in enchanted Puerto Rico, a minute away from the beach, drinking an aged Rum, eating some hummus and falafels, smoking a delicious local cigar, while listening to classical French music before heading to a salsa party!!
