Property Description

Selina’s beachfront property in Bocas del Toro is located in Isla Colon, just 500 meters from the airport. Here you can dive right into the Caribbean from our huge water deck, then head to our dope co-working space to connect and get stuff done. Day and night, we offer our community something to do: learn how to salsa or listen to live music at the Playground, take a yoga class on our private deck, or enjoy a drink or local delicacy at the restaurant. Selina seeks to incorporate our guests into its multicultural tribe.

Our dorms, including all-female dorms, are great for making new friends, and stretching your dollar. We have small dorms with private balconies too, perfect for families or large groups. If you want privacy, check out private rooms, or enjoy the luxury of a nice hotel with one of our deluxe suites. All rooms feature A/C and high-quality mattresses, and all dorms include personal lockers and en-suite bathrooms.

In Bocas, boredom is not an option. During the day you can go island hoping, surfing, and scuba diving, or just relax under the sun. Take a bike tour with us around town or rent one of our paddleboards and head to the beach. For a more exotic experience, don’t miss our brand-new Red Frog location in Isla Bastimento.

    this was the best hostel i stayed at in Panama. the location is in a prime spot. like all Selina hostels everything you need is offered or available to you at the hostel. everything is within walking distance, but Bocas Del Toro isn’t that big anyways. the one thing i wish they did have in their small store was sun block. other than that, this hostel will be your waypoint to fun.

    On the water in a great spot in Bocas. Pool table and bar/restaurant is a great spot. 8 bed dorm I was in was perfect, heaps of space for bags and A/C which you need in Bocas. Could probably organise a few more social activities but a good hostel overall no real complaints.

    We got a private room that was clean and cool. We were warned that the Bocas Selina is a party hostel and it was definitely loud until about 2 - 3 AM during our stay. Didn't bother us but I would recommend earplugs if you're a light sleeper. Otherwise the staff were fantastic, there's boat shuttles from this Selina to the Red Frog Selina, and the bar scene is lit!

    Probably the best Selina I’ve been to (I’ve been to three). The view in and of itself is AMAZING and anyone staying in Bocas should be here at least one night to experience it.

    Nice party hostel - there is always something going on! Amazing was the welcome drink, so you immediately know people. Stuff was helpful, but sometimes seemed annoyed of the questions. The 1000 WhatsApp groups were super annoying, of instead get just simple answers at the reception.

    Great location and atmosphere. Party every night. What I didn’t like is that there wasn’t enough bathrooms for all the dorms so there was always a line for it.

    Very rude staff who don’t seem to care much, lots of creepy guys knocking around which made us uncomfortable. Not great for swimming due to boats everywhere and the ocean pool is quite unsightly We got a room upgrade to a double room due to issues within our door but the double room was soooo basic we actually preferred the dorm. No mirror, bed in a tiny sized prison room, no where to unpack etc. just feels like they squish as many bedrooms in as they can at selina to capitalise. I get the message that pr
