This Selina is perfect to reconnect with yourself and to explore the many wonders this area has to offer. With a volcano view, a river crossing the property and right located right in the middle of town you will definitely feel you are lucky too. With yoga lessons, horseback riding, paddle boarding in the lake, hiking, hot springs, canopy and many other adventures La Fortuna is definitively the place to discover your wildest side. And at night you can enjoy some of the best events in town at our playground, live music, happy hour and much more.

We are located right in the center of La Fortuna, which is is the name of a district and a small city located in San Carlos, in the province of Alajuela. We are located in front of the Parque de La Fortuna and a couple of minutes away walking from the bus stop.

    I really enjoyed my stay, great atmosphere, the facilities are super clean compared with other hostales and for the amount of people that they host. The tepees are small but super cool, if you want to save money, you can use the share kitchen or if you prefer you can order at the restaurant too, what I like the most is the tourist information desk they know everything about the area and the prices are the same or lower than others.

    Selina at La Fortuna was an amazing experience. I went during an off period but the atmosphere is spectacular. I met a lot of great people, location is pretty good , a block away from the center of the city. The rooms are nice too. Overall no complaints.

    I beautiful hostel. It was its own oasis in the middle of town . We stayed in one of the tents and it was amazing. Even through a terrible thunder storm we stayed dry, cool, and comfortable. The best part was waking up one morning to a little puppy curled up at the entrance of our tent. Would definitely come again!! And hope to check out other locations in the future.

    Overall great place to stay. Very nice Hostel with wonderful decor and plenty to do, close to the main road and at walking distance to restaurants, super markets and shopping. At night, people are partying quite a lot, however, so if you're looking for a calm place and you are an early sleeper/early riser, it might not be the best option.

    Pros: the location was right across the street from the bus station and a few blocks off the main strip. If you have a car, El Salto (tarzan swing) and La fortuna waterfall ($15 entry fee) is within 10 mins away. Easy drive to the hanging bridges, hot springs, and adventure parks. The facility was beautiful, just as things are shown in the pictures. Cons: A/C wasn't working in our shared dorm, we did have a fan in the room but only fanned the one side of the room. Food was good but a bit pricey

    I am happy with the rooms and the atmosphere but not happy with their your services. They charged me more compared to what others paid through their hostels/hotels. Please do not book your services through them. Enquire outside.

    Now if you’re just looking for a nice looking hostel this is the place to go. The facilities and location and wonderful. Unfortunately for me and my wife, we want more than just a nice place. These Selina hostels are run like a bar in midtown of a big city. The staff makes no effort to try to connect with you, there is no warmth and welcome. You feel like just another customer. Other hostels I’ve stayed at you immediately feel like you’re apart of the group and everyone is happy and genuine

    The good: I met some great girls during my time here. The girl at the front desk that checked me out was nice. The decor and set up is cute and modern. The cons: Staff was disorganized and overwhelmed checking everyone in. They should have been prepared if they knew a large group was coming. This led to chaos in the lobby. The man that works at the tour desk is rude. I asked him a simple question and was met with condescending remarks.
