Ever since I set foot in the hostel I immediately felt at home, so much so that I extended my stay by another month. I love this place and would not trade it for any other hostel on the island. Thanks Carlos I will always be grateful to you, in you I have found a good boss and a good friend.

I am so grateful I had the opportunity to volunteer at 1802. This was my first time volunteering at a hostel and I couldn’t be happier it was here. I met incredible people, both guests and volunteers. Carlos was very accommodating to my remote work schedule and shared insightful information about the area. I wish I didn’t have to go!

1802 it’s an amazing place. The manager Carlos is really caring and is always making sure that you’re comfortable during your stay. I totally recommend staying at this hostel, there’s always something going on and you’ll never be bored.

La experiencia en el 1802 at San Juan fue inolvidable!! El ambiente del hostal es increíble y la relación con los otros voluntarios y empleados fue genial, como una mini familia! Carlos, el mánager, es una persona muy especial. Muy trabajador y agradable! Ayuda siempre en lo que necesites, siempre está con buena cara y nunca tuvo una mala palabra! Además de llevarnos a conocer rincones de la isla haciendo que me enamorara de ella! No quería marchar! 😭. Recomiendo la experiencia 100%!!
