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.

    The Selina‘s hostel is a beautiful location with a great bar/restaurant area. The beds are comfy, the room had its own bathroom. I enjoyed it very much, since there were a lot of people ready to party on Filthy Friday. I’d recommend this hostel for sure! Super beautiful design :)

    Great options for young travelers who want to party. We were there on a Friday night and they had an awesome bar attached to the hostel. We couldn't hear the bar from our dorm on the second floor which was really nice! They had great security to keep people who weren't staying in the hostel out of it. The dorm itself was pretty basic. Just a bed with a sheet (although my bed was missing a sheet and reception closes at 5 so I slept with my clothes as a blanket). Great location as well.

    Very Good

    This is a fun place to stay, depending on what you're looking for. In some ways, it's just too big, making it hard to meet people and creating a "cliquey" vibe. However, the location is great, it's busy and lively, and overall reliable and secure. There's often live music and you're in the middle of everything. I made friends (not as easily as at other hostels) and we had a great time, just of course be prepared for a different vibe than a smaller hostel.

    Staff were slow and unhelpful, for the price you pay you would expect better working showers. Not the best Selina I've stayed in.

    Some o my personal things were stolen while I was staying at the hostel, I talked to de receptionist and they said the manager would come to talk to me but as much as I asked they never say anything about it not even to apologize or even ask me what happened. Nobody gave me a response or said anything to me which is not aceptable coming to a big chain of hostels as Selina.

    Way overrated. The rooms were clean, but the shower and bathrooms were pretty dirty constantly. It was so loud 24/7. Base bumping so loud at 3 am that it would shake my water bottle. Also our AC unit kept leaking water, and when I told staff they just cut me off and told me to unplug the unit. Kitchen was pretty good, and beds fairly comfortable. Otherwise I’d say this place is not worth it.

    Positives: Close to all amenities. Great bar and a terrace at the back overlooking the water. Kitchen is relatively well-equipped. Perfect for hard partiers. Negatives: Very loud at all times of day. Pretty grubby in some areas - kitchen/shared bathrooms. Staff are not super helpful all the time. Hostel attracts people who want to party, be loud and treat dorm rooms like an extension of the bar. DO NOT VISIT FOR A QUIET STAY

    Great location. Place is extremely unclean. AC went out, dripping water all over the room and the staff just said “unplug it”. Lights went out, bathroom wasn’t cleaned for 2 days that was shared by 10 people, and towel had blood stains. For the money, you can stay at other locations that are much cleaner and staff are nicer or more willing to help. Once the music is off everyone is screaming in the hallways, fun for nights out, but there is nothing calm here.
