  • Description

    Description

    If you are looking for a place that is coastal and you can easily get to all the surrounding smaller islands during your free time and witness the authentic Puerto Rico lifestyle- you have found the right hostel!
    We are a three minute walk to the ferry dock that taxis to all the surrounding smaller islands ($3 a ride) and we are a ten minute bike ride from Puerto Rico's more popular beach, Seven Seas.

    We are a hostel on the east side of Puerto Rico. We cater to travelers on their way to the islands of Vieques and Culebra (voted 3rd Most Beautiful Beach by TripAdvisor in 2014) as well as people traveling to the El Yunque rainforest, the Bioluminescent Bay, and other natural attractions this side of the island has to offer.

    The hostel is great. It takes dedicated driven volunteers to keep a hostel running smoothly. When we are off we have a lot of fun and when we are working we still have fun while we roll up our sleeves and present the guests with the accommodations they deserve.

    We would really love some help around the hostel in exchange for a place to stay and inclusion in all the fun adventuresome things we do around here. You can truly be yourself here. The 25 work help is divided up as 5 hours five days a week.

    Anything additional you can bring to the table will be greatly appreciated. If you are an artist you can help us make the place look great with your ideas, build, paint, draw, we are open to ideas. If you want to start a garden great! We have plenty of sun and plenty of water (also shaded areas too). Take people on tours? Make some scratch on the side by taking people snorkeling on beautiful island reef! Teach us your language! Anything you want.
