    I had such a great stay here and Tess was so sweet and got me involved in the nightly bonfire to meet people and as a solo traveler that was so great! Loved the staff and the whole place was just amazing! The bar and food was great room

    One of the better Selinas I've stayed at in South/Central America. The staff here being the main highlight (particularly Maria on reception). They make a big effort to welcome new travelers on arrival and it's a good spot to meet people, especially as a solo traveler. Only downside was the 10 bed dorm was quite cramped but still good value! Amazing yoga sessions and beautiful setting.

    Bathroom was a bit dirty, but that's expected when it's shared with 6 people... Front desk was very friendly and helpful, they let us store our bags as our shuttle arrived before check in time. The kitchen had good supplies but was extremely messy. It could have been maintained better. Great pool and seating space. Good place to meet people.

    Overall, it was a great stay. They have a nice fire pit, but wouldn’t provide us with any wood to keep the fire going. Would have been a great opportunity to hang out and meet more people. Other than that, great stay.

    This is a good place to meet other travelers. Do not stay here if you are looking for privacy or quiet. There are people coming in and out 24/7

    Great hostel, super sociable and easy to meet new people! The welcome drinks are a great idea. Only downside was the kitchen was quite dirty as it was all wooden however, probably unavoidable in the humidity. Would stay again!

    Our private room smelled like musk and it wasn't under the second night we discovered the sheets that were put on our bed were still wet and tucked into the side of the bed where the smell was coming from. It made all of the blankets smell awful and when I asked to exchange them I was only given a new top sheet as they did not have any others clean at the time so we both slept with a top sheet under us and had to use our towels as blankets.

    Very Good

    The tour coordinators and front are more interested in their phones and talking to each other then helping guest. Got quoted different prices for a shuttle to San Jose. Was very, very upset. Also the only people that were nice were the bartenders. Even the cleaning staff was rude. I did love the pool and my room was fabulous.

    lovely place and atmosphere but the kitchen was the biggest fault. they had so many flies in the kitchen which i felt they werent trying to control. i chose to eat out more as cooking was difficult. the fridge was not cleaned as often as it should be. flies were also inside the fridge. tent dorm was a super cool idea but the fan provided didnt help much that i wish i could have stayed in the dorm where it was cooler. the unofficial selina dogs were the greatest.

    They ban any outside food or drink from everywhere except a small kitchen area in order to make you buy all your food a d drinks there. Had a staff member try and get into our friends private room in the middle of the night too. Real sketchy and a Bit of a rip off if you ask me. Not recommended at all.
