    Every city I go try the Selina experience at least one night. Selia Rio was amazing. The Staff was wonderful, food delicious, clean 👌🏽but the best part was the roof top! so alive art scene, with the amazing view of the Arcos de Lapa! 🎶🇧🇷💘 The building perse is an invaluable architecture piece enriched by the design touches of the Selina geniuses 🙌🏽

    We stayed here for 3 nights in October, the hostel was lovely inside with lots of good facilities. In a fab location. The rooms were spotless and rather large with a tasteful design. I would stay in a Selina Hostel again.

    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.

    Nice hostel, new rooms with a hotel feeling. If you want to socialise you will need to go up to the rooftop (events). All the rest was good.

    We stayed in a private room and then a dorm. As people have mentioned the vibe can feel a little more hotel like at times, but as it was our first few nights of a big trip we didn’t mind that! Breakfast is great. Free caipirinha was one of the best we’ve had yet! The radio during the day is cool. Live band one evening was amazing. Location felt a little sketchy but we got Uber’s which are cheap and it’s close to good bar/food areas. It’s worth paying a bit extra for!

    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...

    It is very comfortable and clean, with a nice shower and beds, curtains around each bed, charging point and lights at each bed, etc. The location is great, close to nightlife and metro and without having to go uphill at all. There is no atmosphere, it is more like a hotel in that respect. The air con in our room wasn’t working properly the second night, but I am sure if we’d said something it would have been fixed.

    Great place to stay in Lapa but would recommend other neighborhoods in Rio that are closer to cooler things

    Great facilities. Clean rooms with nice en suites. Lapa is a little dodgy at night but they have security on the door all through the night and entry on granted of wearing wristband. Vibe was good with lots of communal areas but being a chain felt a little ‘hotel’ like. Would recommend if staying in lapa because of the security.

    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.
