    Loved this place! Location is amazing if you want to party or dance. Close to attractions in the city. Not to far from the beach as well. The hostel itself was VERY fancy and well kept. Instagram worthy for sure. The rooftop bar is great as well as the cinema room. Security makes you feel comfortable as well. Dorm rooms were ideal and nice and cold with the AC. We stayed here again and in a Selina in São Paulo after. Selina’s are great if you want a higher end hostel.

    I'm generally not a fan of huge hostel chains. This was my first time staying at a Selina and it was great. Great location in Lapa, beautiful historic building with lots of comfortable common spaces to chill, rooftop bar with DJ on some days, very friendly and helpful staff. The security is also top. There's also a coworking space for digital nomads with decent internet (use the 5GHz net). I had a great stay and extended by several days.

    Paid a lot as my stay was during Carnival so can't say it was worth the money - this is not necessarily Selina's fault. Nice staff & lots of guests to socialise with, surrounding area is a little dangerous for solo travellers but 24/7 security and key-controlled lifts, so you feel very safe inside. Great if you want to party.

    Its a Selina, probably no more words needed. Facilities are really nice as always, but it feels like a hotel, no hostel vibe. Most people dont interact with each other. Its not really clean, more like pretty fast cleaned so always some dirt somewhere. The toilets dont have soaps, which i personally really dislike, its just disgusting, nobody brings soap to a hostel for a few days. So please offer soap, or increase the price and then offer, i dont care. Especially during corona ..

    It is a nice place to stay. Good location, friendly staff, and all amenities around it. However, the check-in is too late (3 pm) and the breakfast is expensive and average.

    As a traveler, internet conection is very important for me. Selina is well known to offer "the best option" for digital nomads, but WIFI at this location was TERRIBLE, not working most of the time. Location is good for the area, and there is always security in the front door of the hostel. Staff is good, but not outstanding. Room was confortable, but there were some details like there is no soap to wash your hands in the room toilet or that you don't get a blanket (YOU HAVE TO RENT IT).
