    Great hostel in the old town. Best area to stay in close to all the bars and restaurants. Stayed in a private which was good. The rooftop and nightclub are fun. Would definitely recommend

    Everything about this hostel is 10/10 except for the atmosphere. It felt more like a hotel and pretty anti social. The rooftop with bar and pool was incredible. And the view!!!!!!

    good and comfortable place to stay if you are looking to have a relaxing time in the quieter side- old town. if you are a lgbtq+ traveler and looking to meet locals, consider staying in down town / centro, close to where all the locals live.

    Loved the location in the old town for a few days. Good vibes. Not a party hostel but good chat and people interacting. Fresh, clean, friendly. Saw the cleaners each day working. Pool is small but nice to have one. Roof top area is great. Kitchen is functional but not the greatest at times, after breakfast/ lunch was made for I assume the guests who were working in the common work area, the kitchen was an absolute mess for an hour or so and not useable. Otherwise all facilities there and work.

    This was the best Selina Hostel I’ve stayed in (6 so far). There’s loads of cool places to chill and the rooftop has great views of the city. We had an incident in the dorm where a male guest was harassing us and tried to climb into our beds in the middle of the night, and Selina dealt with it really well - they moved us into a private room at no charge and saw to it that the guest left.

    The floors were really gross. I think big dorm rooms really need to have curtains for the beds because there is zero privacy. Smelt a bit. But nice communal areas. Not close to any large supermarkets.

    They initially said they didn’t have my booking (booked months in advance via the website). Staff cleared it up in a timely manner and I was checked in. Unfortunately the rooms are only cleaned every other day and the bathroom gets dirty fast. Have to ask them to clean. Kitchen only has one small refrigerator for hundreds of people and doesn’t stay cold. Loud party music until 4am. You’ve been warned.

    Staying in this hostel was truly a miserable experience. After travelling around Colombia and Panama for around a month in hostels and having an amazing time, i had high expectations for this hostel. The staff were all very rude, rolling their eyes etc. They do warn you about the loud music at least, but be prepared to hear it heavily all night long. People coming in and out of the room ALL night, leaving room lights on at 4 AM etc. Not much of a common area. Non-guests everywhere. Nice view tho
