And at night you can enjoy some of the best events in town at our playground, live music, happy hour and much more.

    I have stayed at several Selina locations in Central and South America and this is by far my favorite one. The atmosphere is much better for socializing than other Selinas. Location was absolutely perfect and the rooms were clean and secure. Definitely recommend.

    Absolutely loved this place. Beds have curtains so you get some privacy in your dorm, they have events in the restaurant area in the evening that are tons of fun, even the food they serve is super good for a hostel! Maybe a bit overpriced but worth it. Also the staff if really helpful with transportation and excursions

    Everything is perfect, the location, cleaness, helpful stuff. There is a well equipped kitchen, a bar, swimming pool, nice garden to relax. Good atmosphere and easy to meet other travelers. Sometimes you can spot a sloth or an iguana on the tree nearby. Highly recommend :)

    Loved this hostel. It’s covid season so it was fairly empty. But with the way this place is set up It seems like it would be epic during high season. The place is cool has its typical restaurant and bar, although the prices are pretty high compared to finding somewhere local to eat. It’s nice and convenient having it there when you want. There’s a cool river that runs behind it. The staff was amazing. All very extremely nice! Prob one of the better hostels I’ve ever stayed at. AC/ comfy beds

    Had a great stay in la fortuna! The facilities at selina were amazing, the pool, bar, and bonfire area are lovely and it was nice having a bar/restaurant on site - even if the drinks are a little expensive. The explore staff were super helpful with booking tours but be warned nothing in La Fortuna is very cheap. Travelling on my own, I found it easy to meet people especially in the evenings with the welcome drink and happy hour!

    Overall a great place to stay near the bus station and main city park. The hostel was very clean in the rooms, bathrooms and common spaces. I really enjoyed working at the coworking space.

    Great experience. The bunk beds of the dorms should have their lockers placed somewhere else and be more spacious.

    Loooooved the design and vibe of this hostel. So cool. Nice pool chill out area, cool DJ, coworking space, bonfire, light show, welcome drink, what more could you ask for! The tours through the hostel are a bit on the expensive side, but it's easy enough to find other tours on your own if you're on a budget. Has both a bar/restaurant area where you can order food and a kitchen area where you can cook your own. Especially loved the dorms with a shelf, outlets, light, curtain, etc. Recommend! :)
