    After spending two weeks at Selina, partly during the quarantine, I can honestly say that the crew went beyond what one would usually expect to make us comfortable under less than ideal circumstances. The place is clean and well thought through with a wonderful garden, pool, kitchen, library and cinema. The best hostel I have ever stayed at no question.

    Great set up and a little get away from the city. You can definitely spend a whole day just lounging between the tree house to the many sitting areas all outside by the gardens. Went during rainy season so pool was too cold to get in but looks nice. Beds are comfortable but are short spaced unlike other selinas. Just keep in mind I’m 5’2 and hit my head once. Also the cabinet inside the bed takes away room. Also bumped my legs couple times. Selina should remove those & replace with real lockers.

    This is the most amazing hostel for its chill out area. However while we were there the internet was out and instead of being told we should maybe find somewhere else to stay if we need to work we kept getting the response of “it will be back on soon” our fault we should have left but it was also how the manager handled it that was annoying.

    Such a great hostel, in fact it feels more like a hotel. The pool area with the bar is amazing. The dorms are clean with charging points and curtains - the lockers are in the beds and as they are quite big they take up a lot of the bed space. The food and drinks are expensive but it has a good comunal kitchen.

    Beautiful hostel with a huge garden and pool area. It has all the right ingredients to be an amazing hostel, just falls down on the atmosphere & vibe. The food was very expensive for what it was, I was very disappointed with the quality. Top tip: save the money and find a better cafe in town! Ideal location for the town centre 👍

    The outdoor area is just amazing. However, i’m not sure where you can meet other travelers when the weather is bad as the hostel is so huge you don’t know where is what. Therefore it would be great if the staff could give a little introduction. Food was also good. There are social activities every night. What I definitely enjoyed that music stopped at 11pm so I was able to sleep :)

    Pros: curtains on each bed, hot & powerful shower, quiet, good location Cons: stayed 3 nights and the dorm bathroom wasn’t cleaned once during our stay, lockers are in the bed cubicle so it felt like you didn’t have much space, food & drinks are over priced, hard to meet other travelers.

    The place itself is lovely very scenic. But the first day the water didn't work. Then the WiFi didn't work for the next two days. I appreciate these things can happen but it's the manner in which you deal with them that is important. The staff did not give a clear indication of when the problem might be solved and they didn't offer any suggestions as an alternative. It also seemed like they didn't want to deal with the problem and just wanted to ignore it and hope it went away.

    At the moment the kitchen / social rooms / cinema are closed due to a decision of the government. However Selina missed out to mention that on the booking website or their website. They offered us a discount for the restaurant and we could use a fridge / hot water and a microwave in the cowork space. Anyways it is a hotel NOT a hostel at the moment. Also it should be cleaner for that. The bathroom was wet all the time and the shower knows only burning hot or extreme cold. Bedsheets were always dirty.
