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. At night, Bocas Town offers everything from a reggae bars to pulsating discos . You might come back to us after the sun is up.

Selina Bocas del Toro is right next to the Caribbean Sea – you can practically touch the water from our deckside hammocks and swing seats! Catch some sun, then drop by our yoga and salsa classes, or listen to live music during the daily happy hour at our restaurant-bar The Playground. We've got a kitchen on site for prepping snacks – because you'll need that energy post-surfing, scuba diving and island-hopping trips.


We're 500 metres from the airport, so it really couldn't be easier to get here. We're on the beachfront in Bocas del Toro, not far from the reggae bars and all-night clubs of the main Bocas Town. No curfew means staying up till sunrise is pretty much a given! Keen to explore the rest of Isla Colón? Ask staff about tours to the Chocolate Forest and mangroves of Cayo Zapatilla.

Rooms and Dorms

Our mixed and female-only dorms with en-suites are great for making your money go further while meeting new mates. You'll have your own reading light and locker – make sure to bring a padlock – and linen's included. Some of our smaller dorms have their own balconies – ideal if you're backpacking with the squad and want a big room including your own outdoor space. There are private rooms, and if you fancy an upgrade, you can check out our deluxe suites.

Extras and activities

Whether you're a freelance worker or you want to catch up with friends on the free Wi-Fi, we've got a great co-working space where you can spend a couple of hours emailing or concentrating. If relaxing's more your vibe, set up a board game or get a couple of rounds in at the pool table. After something a bit more adventurous? Book on a bike tour or rent a paddle-board. Afterwards, make yourself a tea or coffee and settle down to update your travel diary or getting to know your fellow travel buddies.

    Staff weren’t as bad as I expected from a Selina but yes the receptionists can have a bit of an attitude. The rest of the staff (bar staff and instructors and cleaners) were wonderful. I was in a 4 bed dorm. I was top bunk and between the top of the bed and roof there was maybe half a metre. So you always hit your head on the roof and it was a mission to get onto the bed. (I’m average height) The bed is comfy however and wifi was great. The facilities here were great too.

    A great place to stay in Bocas Del Toro even under conditions of lock down. The staff are super friendly and helpful and help create a relaxed atmosphere during the day and more lively scene in the bar area at night. I wouldn't hesitate to visit this hostel again if I get the opportunity

    Wonderful location! Super central & right on top of the water. The views were absolutely incredible from the dorm room & on the patio. Staff are super knowledgeable about the area/things to do but at time slightly condescending, but it totally depends which one you talk to. Definitely a party hostel, music was super loud until 4am but if that’s what you’re looking for Selina is definitely the place to be!

    Amazing hostel, right beside the water. Cool bar to get rowdy and dance like a potato. Filthy Friday is the best party! You start pounding drinks at 9am at the hostel and go full send Harambe at the first bar. Second and third bar is up to you if you want to remember it or not. You can bring your own alcohol at the hostel but you have to drink it upstairs or in your room. Just not close to the bar. The staff is horrible and the bar is slow. I think they went to school on How to be a potato.

    Wifi didn’t work for the first days. No key-card because no wifi (should have some other way to give out keys if wifi’a unreliable). ACs had trouble for almost every person on hostel (they would start dripping and make a mess, or not cool enough, or cool too much). Gets worse because rooms don’t have AC remote so you have to go to reception for any change in room temp or turn on/off. A bit of a party but you can get away form it ir you want. Lots of cool people staying there.

    There was dog-poo in the hallway. You couldn‘t sleep until they stopped the music at 1, it‘s definitely a party hostel. So be sure to want that, otherwise look for something else!
