    Absolutely love Selina! This is a party hostel and a great place to meet loads of people from other countries. BRING YOUR OWN TOILET PAPER, the TP here is super thin. The lockers also have a very small circular open where the lock goes, so bring a thin lock. Mine was too thick and I had to buy a new one (fortunately they had them at the front desk). Bring headphones or earplugs. Lots of great nightlife within walking distance. I felt very safe staying here, security is always present.

    It was my second stay in Selina Cartagena. What a nice place with great atmosphere! The two rooftops are amazing - I prefer the pool in the second building and the bar in the first one. Staff was always very friendly and helpful - the guys from reception really rock! During my first stay I had a room with 4 beds and the second time with 6 beds, which was better in terms of space between the bunk beds. Bathroom in the 4-bed room was better though. I would definitely stay again in Selina!

    It’s a super nice hostel, very clean with pool and lots of communal space. It’s a big busy hostel so meeting people as a solo traveller was very hard. Would recommend for people travelling in groups but not for solo travellers looking to meet people while travelling.

    I was really excited to stay at Selina however I was disappointed by the time we left. We stayed in a 7 bed dorm and when we arrived none of the plugs worked and the toilet didn’t flush. We told the staff twice about the plugs and still nothing was done. On the second night our AC wasn’t working. We told the staff and they said they would send someone up and yet no one came. The communal areas were good but the rooms were really disappointing and I would not go back.

    Location and esthetic was great but lacking in customer service from front desk and facilities need work. No communal bathroom so if you’re hoping for good shower and easy access to toilet you’ll be disappointed. Only 1 bathrooms for 7 people or 2 bathrooms for 10 is not ideal. Challenging for showers, getting ready and layout of bathrooms are rough. There’s two good rooftops with an awesome pool and nice bartenders and easily accessible but cramped quarters inside.

    This Selina is a cool building in old town. Unfortunately the front desk is pretty rude and VERY cagey about Air conditioning. For some reason the workers refuse to turn down the AC any lower than 26C (78.8F) and lie about possibly turning it down. One night they turned it down for me to 18C and then 20 minutes later the worker turned it back up to 26 from outside our room using a remote. The pools are also disgustingly dirty and I couldn’t bear to look at them much less swim.

    Super industrialized hostel, no culture or environment (rooftop bar might as well be any bar in the city). Staff is constantly busy and you’ll wait in a disorganized mob for 20 min every time you need something from them. All of my clothes that I washed using their laundry service came back with permanent marker written all over the tags. Bathrooms unreasonably small. Defiantly will not stay again nor recommend (though yes, it’s clean and they have security 24/7 so feels very safe).
