    Not terrible but not worth the price. Many of the amenities were unavailable, likely due to covid. This includes the areas provided for people to work and the area people are pictured doing yoga. Also found a huge dead roach when we arrived laying near the steps. The rooms were smaller than expected and everything felt very cheap. Night club across the street so loud music at night and construction during early morning and day. Helpful and friendly staff. and the kitchen had a vegan option.

    This was my second time staying at Selina Cartagena... I returned because of the rooftops, and the staff. The pools are great, and the sunsets are beautiful. Tacos were good, though the food and drinks were a bit pricey (expected at Selina). Building A is WAY nicer than building B... the dorms in B were dark, dirty, and smelled damp. The privates in A are smaller but brighter and nicer, and the courtyard area is lovely. The cowork is nice, and it was actually one of the cleaner Selina kitchens.

    Rated low in cleanliness as they is hardly any measure towards covid, so if you are looking for a place to make you feel “safe”, Selina definitely has to improve. Facilities are good for being a hostal, co working spaces very well arranged, and different activities.

    Very Good

    I'll cut to the chase- Staff needs to do something about the mildew/mold going on in some of the rooms. I went in 3 different rooms on the 1st floor and theres mildew on the walls and pillows! The cleaners come in and do a light mop and garbage change. Towels are free. The pool is great. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Stayed here during COVID-19 I had the 4bedroom to myself for 5 nights. front desk stated they werent putting more than 2 in a room.

    The rooms in Selinas Cartagena feels like containers, hermetic, dark, bathroom has not extractor fan, sockets didn’t work, no bed light. But it has a nice terrace and a nice pool, you can move from one building to other, which is cool.

    Of one my rooms smelled poorly, I was able to be switched out to another room, they have a WhatsApp group chat that is pretty cool, I had lunch with the GM good guy! I had a issue with one of the workers attitude in which he spoke to me numerous times and to my guest in a disrespectful fashion. This is the lowest grade I have ever left and first negative experience I have had at a hostel, no more business for my friends or family. The pool and food is amazing that was a plus, team did try.
