Casita Esperanza is a vibrant and charming hostel located in a popular and authentic neighborhood walking distance from the famous Loíza Street and Ocean Park Beach in San Juan. Newly renovated and tastefully decorated, it offers a haven after a day of adventure and volunteering on the island.
More than a hostel, Casita Esperanza is an all-encompassing project. We strive to respond to the new challenges posed by the humanitarian crisis brought on by an inadequate governmental response to the disaster. The lack of official response paired with the amount of destruction has forced grassroots initiatives to step up and take a more important role in reconstruction and relief efforts. Consequently, there is an increased need for volunteer work. This project strives to respond to the situation by providing an alternative travel experience to fuel reconstruction endeavors. Casita Esperanza organizes frequent brigades to support grassroot initiatives. During your stay you can join them in volunteering.
