    We spent 1 night in a private room and 1 night in a teepee. Both were wonderful accommodations! We loved the restaurant and the daily events like the welcome happy hour and the hike to the rope swing spot along the river. Would stay here again any time!

    Selina La Fortuna was hands down one of the best hostels I have stayed in. Even during covid, the hostel was lively and welcoming. The staff is super friendly and helpful, and the food is very good! Would recommend this hostel to anyone!! My friend and I stayed in a micro-suite and were very pleased by the daily cleaning we had. My only complaint is by the end of the day, the communal bathrooms were pretty gross as they are only cleaned in the morning I believe.

    I really enjoyed staying at the Selina hostel in La Fortuna. I booked all my tours through them and met a lot of really cool people. The food at the restaurant was good and the work space was really nice. The communal kitchen was outside so there were a lot of fruit flies around because of the food and the fridges were packed full. Amanda hosted a welcome drink and bonfire every night and she was super friendly and helpful. The private huts looked really nice, I would have like to stay in one.

    Very nice hostel with nice beds, clean bathrooms and hot showers. The pool is really nice and the included breakfast was really good. It’s in a great location as well, very close to supermarkets and restaurants. They were quite strict about groups of people in common areas due to Covid but apart from that was very nice. Would definitely recommend

    Lots of rules and kids in the pool but room was good if you get the good dorms. Had to request to move to a better dorm with bathroom. Apart from that facilities a very high standard.

    Was a nice hostel, the pool area was very nice and the dorm was comfortable. However the rule of 2 people cooking in the kitchen was frustrating and the staff could have been more welcoming. Overall we did have a good stay though!

    The stay was a mixed experience. I stayed 3 nights in a TeepPee, which was more expensive then was worth it. Then I stayed 2 nights in a dorm. I paid on line for a 6 bed dorm and was put in a 10 bed dorm (that should have had no more then 5 pp in it because of COVID but had 8) and the next morning when I questioned the desk not only was I told I wouldn’t get reimbursed but I was told I could collect all my baggage’s and wait for the afternoon to move again. And I was offered lunch as a compensat
