    Such a great hostel! I spent quite a bit of time with my friend up on the rooftop to relax. I didn't realize it when I booked but the hostel has two buildings that are across the street from each and each has a rooftop restaurant and bar, which was nice to mix it up! I'd highly recommend staying! It was in a great location where you could walk around this historic area easily.

    Solid hostel and it’s pretty big. Pool/bar/restaurants on the roofs are solid. Stayed in a private in building B (newer?) and it was comfy, although I heard different from others so it might depend on the room you get. Staff was good and helpful. Short walk to old town in a cool, artsy area.

    Incredibly great coworking space. However, I found the staff at the reception quite unfriendly. The rooms are quite okay, but not very nice. You will also have some language issues if you don't speak Spanish

    Over priced for what you get. Not worth the money. When i was there, there wasn't many backpackers/travellers around. It was mostly locals which is good but not ideal if you're solo travelling.

    The 4 bed-room had only enough space for 1 person to stand up at a time. The lockers provided weren't big enough to fit your average traveller backpack. The 4th floor was ideal for the bar and pool but the beds may as well have been in the bar, music was way too loud and stayed on till around 2am (every night). Pool water was very very dirty, less than ideal during a pandemic. Cleanliness average. Location was good, and bar staff friendly.

    Heard much about Selina's, and finally gave it a try. I regretted it. It's a corporate hostel with zero atmosphere. No effort made in building a community. Selina's should also invest in more English speaking staff. I get we are in Colombia but when only one or two staff are able to check in guests, leading to LONG lines, that's a problem. In asking to extend for one night, I waited 1.5 hours for the staff to confirm they had only one dorm, priced at US$50. I left Selina and did not look back.

    Worst Selina ever! No wifi for 2 days. Filthy bathrooms. Messed up food order 4 times. Air con not working. No lights in the bed. Elevator out all day. Construction noise all day. Moved rooms to a flooded room as the air con was broken. Room door stuck on the ground, didn’t open properly. Smashed mirror in the bathroom. You could hear everything from the bar upstairs until 3am. Chairs dragged on the ground and loud noise started again started at 7am. So only 4 hours of quiet time to sleep.
