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

    We stayed in the selinas in both Manuel Antonio and la fortuna and loved them!! Fun, exciting environment that was very easy to meet people! Great breakfasts in the morning if you wish, and quite the enjoyable spa services! I loved that they had a tour guide on hand!

    I Loved this place!!!! It was so clean and nice and the way it’s set up allows everyone to hang in the same area and it was so easy to meet people. The kitchen is awesome and open and had plenty of cooking wear. The staff was wonderful and super helpful and the location is right off the Main Street! I would 100% stay here again and definitely recommend it to everyone

    My friend and I stayed here at Selina. The private room we stayed in was GREAT. Super cute, this place has a very clean and nice vibe. Unfortunately we didn’t meet anybody while we were there. We tried to hang out at the bar both nights but everyone there seemed to already be in a group. I think it would have helped if the hostel hosted events at night. Games, ice breakers, drinking games, etc. or even gone out as a group. They did have lots of seating and comfy chairs to relax in.

    I love love love this hostel! One of the best ones I have been to. The atmosphere here is amazing. Great vibes. Great staff. Central location walking distance to store and restaurants. And just minutes to the Arenal Park that has all the fun stuff to do. The grounds is amazing. Lots of accommodation options and lots of amenities and things to do. The shared room: I loved that my bed had a privacy curtain, light, and cubby space for my personal items. I’m extremely happy I chose Selina.

    The most beautiful Selina I saw. Many activities throughout the day, nice chillout places, very easy to meet people, clean, great bar etc. The reception stuff was quite disengaged and not very helpful. The tours are VERY overpriced compared to prices in other travel agancies around. I would still stay there again.

    Beautiful pool and hangout/bar area. The kitchen area is small for the amount of people that stay there. We only had 1 bathroom for a dorm of 10 people and kept having to go downstairs to the bathroom right by reception. The staff was fine but very much treated us like one of the masses. Good value for price. More geared to guests wanting to party and less to those looking for a homey feel.

    The place was lovely but the room was hot and stuffy. Impossible to close the privacy curtain without it becoming a sweat box as there was one fan for the room which someone had pointed to their bed lol. Kitchen was well equipped but there weren’t enough seats to sit and eat the food you make as people congregate there and chat so had to take my food and sit on the porch by myself to eat.

    Very Good

    It was fine. Pool was clean, kitchen area for guests was kind of small and cramped. Beds come with only a sheet as a blanket, which works with the hot weather. If you're a tall person then I don't recommend the dorm beds, they have a giant locker inside of the cubby and I kept hitting my legs on them in the middle of the night. Staff was nice and helpful, food was a little expensive for the portion sizes (still tasty though) but the hostel is close to some really good restaurants!

    Selina er rigtig fin, hvis du bare lukker øjnene for prisen og deres priser. Deres ture er totalt skudt ved siden af og du kan nemt betale dobbelt af hvad du betaler andre steder.
