    The hostel is in Lapa, the party district close to the historic centre, and is close to Santa Theresa and Gloria. I stayed in a private which was simple, clean and just like the photos. The staff are helpful, there are security guards 24hrs, and the vibe is nice. If you want a more authentic Rio experience I would stay here, but bear in mind it’s not very close to the copa/Ipanema beaches (20mins by Uber or 30mins by metro)

    The hostel is one of the best you can stay at in terms of cleanliness and the facility. It feels more like a nice hotel and less like a college frathouse.

    I like Selina as is a modern hostel in the center of Lapa! The staff is very friendly and everyone becomes friends,which for a solo traveller is very important! The only two things that should be improved are the cleanliness of the rooms and toilets...rooms should be vacuumed and the kitchen lacks of pots,pans, cups,mugs and stuff to cook. A hostel must provide all of that!

    Lovely place to stay. I was here during carnival and staff managed to keep the place very clean and hospitable. Rooms are nice size and the kitchen area is very spacious. It's located in Lapa, which can get a bit leery during carnival, but after carnival it is a good central location with metros close by.

    Very Good

    For the price (I got a private room) I would expect decent wifi. The wifi for some reason is given at a reduced speed to visitors and it wasn't even able to do a video call to family at home without freezing. The elevators take forever and are often very crowded I found to get the room. The AC was impossible to figure out how to operate and calling, texting, or messaging the reception online was impossible to get a response. But it's a beautifully decorated hostel, very new with nice facilities

    On check out day I had to catch a flight back home at 1930. As check out is at 11 AM, one would like to leave their bags with the staff until it's time to go. There were a handful of backpacks behind the reception but 'storage was full.' Reception gladly informed me my bags were my responsibility and suggested I wait in the lobby and watch them for SIX hours. Ultimately I had to walk to another place I stayed at which stored them so I could enjoy my day. Also, the room's record player was broke.
