    I stayed here last year and the hostel has improved a lot. Great vibe, great staff, great location l, clean, comfortable and close to Lapa with all the bars etc and also close to Gloria market, walking distance ti Santa Teresa. Highly recommend a few nights here to escape the tourist traps around Copa.

    The place is really cool and the location is great. The only thing that I did not like there was food (everything was very oily)

    Security is great and so is the staff. Great location, 5 min walk to the subway and right next to Selarón and Arcos. They offer events (they will charge for everything, even for extra blankets) and there is a library, a movie room, a functional kitchen… a con is that they’re not reinforcing COVID sanitary measures (keeping common areas cleaner, asking guests to wear a masks, social distancing…). The bathroom doors are somewhat problematic - they’re always stuck or missing a key.

    More like a hotel than a hostel, but still very nice, you can tell a lot of money and thought went into this Selina’s. It’s a beautiful building with some very cool amenities and a rooftop bar. The location is perfect if you want to go to Lapa at night. For some reason, the toilet didn’t seem to refill, we had to use the bum gun to refill it every time, which considering the calibre of Selina’s is a bit surprising. If you want a clean place with air con and hot showers in Rio, this is it.

    Sometimes I felt that the volunteers were the owners of the place and the customers were there just disrupting their lives and routine.

    Pretty nice hostel, however the WiFi wasn't stable which makes it difficult for digital nomads.

    The staff barely knows English which is a fault not accepted in the tourism industry. This thing has interfered in every area. I even despaired of complaining that the air conditioner in the room did not work. In addition, my friend was robbed at the entrance to the hotel and the guard who was at the entrance saw everything but it made him laugh

    The staff is great. The bar at the rooftop is even better. The location is close to SDU airport, and the hostel is affiliated with a travel agency. Though, the kitchen is open until 11 pm only and we do not have an AC remote to control the temperature. Also, the breakfast is not included in the hostel rate and has only one option.

    Friendly staff, nice room and facilities, the location is tricky because the amount of homeless around, there are no supermarkets close by and it’s not safe to walk around
