    Great place with great atmosphere. The rooms were clean, and the common areas were very comfortable. The only downside to our stay here as backpackers was that the guests mainly consisted of adults and or families, so would not recommend for those who look to meet people.

    It is a hostel with a hotel quality , the location is the most strategic one in rio (safe and close to many attractions and especially to the most alive night life ) , a lot of facilities , amazing events inside and outside of the hostel , they have a rooftop bar for parties too , i loved the iced water with lemon on the front desks

    The common kitchen is the highlight for me. The rooftop is also amazing, when I arrived in the hostel there was a very nice party going on. I simply LOVE the smell inthe hall. I went there so many times only to feel the smell. I felt a little unsafe in the area around the hostel. Even though it's pretty.

    The hostel looks really nice. Beautiful buildung; located in the city center, making it easy to walk to a lot of places of interest. It's also close to the metro station. The room was modern, spacious and clean, the bathroom as well. The communication to the receptionists was uncomplicated. What I really didn't enjoy there was the restaurant and the food. The quality was low and the portions were waaaay to small, especially for such a price!! The service was really slow. Very disappointing...

    The hostel was overall nice with great location. Rooms really clean and toilets were neat too. Only part which was disappointing was, it did not really have a great vibe which you get in a hostel. Felt more like living in a hotel.

    Selina is your typical corporate hostel; lots of tours and activities on offer, cool bar and restaurant, new clean facilities. The dorm room had nice beds (curtain, shelf, outlet); my only complaint was the bathroom, which was not well designed and kind of gross (water on floor, trash overflowing). I also stayed a night in a private room which was like a nice hotel room, good bathroom. Not much atmosphere between guests, but I also wasn’t looking to interact much during my stay.

    The location was in the heart of Lapa and nightlife, which depending on what you're going for, can be a pro or con. The staff people were nice, but I was super disappointed with their lack of ability to adjust the cost of my stay due to a flight delay arriving in the city. Another hostel I was planning to stay in had no problem adjusting for me, but Selina staff said it was out of their hands and I believe them, but it's just not customer friendly. Also, it's more a hotel vibe than hostel.

    Great hostel!!! Friendly staff! Party’s all the time on the roof!! Great roof and views! Location was amazing! KITCHEN!!! - this was sooo annoying!! There was no bowls, no cups, nothing... no one would clean the kitchen at all! We were there for 10 nights so we didn’t want to eat out all the time! We wanted to cook and we booked this hostel cause it had a kitchen but it wasn’t very useful! Housekeeping - I asked 3 times for our toilet to get cleaned as we were in a 6 bed dorm.

    This is a nicely built hostel with good facilities. The location is great for getting around to various sights. Staff were friendly also. We found that the kitchen was unclean and lacked utensils however. This has been noted by several review before us as well, and not addressed.
