    I came to Selina to study & work done from my computer. I ended up extending my stay 6+ weeks here. Would highly recommend.

    My first experience of this boutique hostel chain, I will be using them again. These are the places that are likely to have any sort of activity during the pandemic, as they attract both backpackers and digital nomads. Decor is industrial shabby chic, with all mod cons. Good wifi, pool table, movie nights and a terrific rooftop pool with views of the skyline. Have downloaded the app and will be using them all over LatAm.

    Great place to make friends and have a good time! Design is pretty cool and rooftop bars are not only a view but cool place to meet people! You are in a central location but one way is the beautiful colonial neighborhood and on the other not some nice areas of the city. Security although annoying does a great job! Diana in the front provided great service! I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone!

    Staying at the Selina in Cacso Viejo really made my experience in Panama City worthwhile. Great atmosphere on the rooftop terrace, where it's really easy to meet lots of fun people travelling alone or in groups. The rooms were nice and clean, but didn't offer a lot of privacy, and it's hard not to make a lot of noise when getting in/out of bed and opening the door. Really good breakfasts downstairs and super helpful and nice staff! Would really recommend for the great atmosphere.

    Selina Casco Viejo is amazing. It affords you the opportunity to mingle with various people, work in a comfortable space, and relax in the many hip spaces that it provides. Highly recommended if you're the type of person that is staying one night or 30. The staff foster an environment of acceptance and are eager to help with any question or problem. They are true problem solvers. I am now a Selina brand believer and will stay with Selina in many more countries.

    Selina's is in an excellent location, it has good facilities, the staff are friendly, the food is very good, the decor is ok (if industrial shabby chic is your thing) and it isn't just another chain hotel. If I am in Casco Viejo I stay there, the only negative is, if you wan't a room to yourself it isn't that cheap.

    Very Good

    28 Dec 2020
    The location is good and the reception staff were very helpful both at check-in and afterwards during my stay. My only recommendation would be about cleaning. It appears the floors everywhere are mopped every day but what would be really great is if the lifts could be cleaned daily too. The button panel inside the lifts and the doors are filthy and this deserves some attention especially in these Covid times. Also, the 'fridge doors in the common eating area could do with a daily wipe down.

    The reason why my rating is so low is that I felt that Edwin who works at the front desk, the guy with the pony tail, was extremely rude and unhelpful. The reason why we did not check in a second time coming back to Panama. Otherwise everyone else at the front desk, especially the night guy, was very nice! Food was very expensive and rooms are dirty for the price. Great location but it's so unfortunate about these things. I do not recommend.

    awesome overall vibe but I had the worst hostel experience here of many hostels I have stayed at. -Locks had just changed to electronic with codes- but the code is literally the room number for all rooms - our inside door handle broke - we were locked inside of our room for a long time - I was told at check in to grab another clean bed if mine was taken. It was, so I claimed another clean bunk, went to sleep, but was woken up to someone yelling at me that I was in their assigned bunk
