    So happy we changed hostels to Selina. We loved everything about the hostel minus the price of drinks on the rooftop.

    The common areas are really nice but the dorm was a bit shabby. The bathroom door was broken in a mixed dorm. Not ideal. Loved the curtains on the bed. Terrace gets really busy and is smaller than it looks in the photos. Luggage storage not very secure but access to the buildings is very tightly controlled. Overall a very cool hostel in terms of shared facilities and location.

    The pool is quite nice with a great view. The hostel is nice for partying. The rooms are overpriced, humid and a little bit smelly. If you want deep sleep and quietness, this is not the right hostel for you.

    Very Good

    Every night of my stay the music on the rooftop was playing until 4am. People are very loud & you can hear everything. Don’t get me wrong, I love a party hostel, but it is difficult to get any sleep here & it’s too much. The other guests were very rude and inconsiderate that is was a communal room. Consistently being loud at all hour of the night, turning the lights on at night, and brining randoms into the room. I’ve stayed at multiple Selina’s in other countries and this was my least favorite.

    Booked a private room. It was not cleaned thoroughly when I arrived in. There was specially a lot of hair in the bathroom and a curtain was missing. Rooms were overpriced for the quality they offered. It was very noisy right next to a discotheque. However the rooftop pools were nice.

    Pros: - Amazing terrace w/ pool & view on city - Great location Cons: - Super noisy (usually not sensitive to noise but on the ground floor dorms you literally hear every single step banging above you on the wooden floor and you wake up with other guests having an early day - No atmosphere and hard to meet other persons as a solo traveler - Very impersonal hotel & staff (wasn’t given any explanation on activities/things to do at hostel or outside) - Dorm way too small - Overpriced

    I booked a stay for myself and my best friend and we were put in separate rooms far away although the reservation was entirely under my name. It seemed like poor planning and the place gave off a not caring corporate vibe with not too much atmosphere. The TV room didn’t work and no one on staff could help us figure it out. Glad we only stayed one night in all honesty.
