    Definitely a cute place to stay. Very chill, if you are looking for some R&R, or if you are into yoga. We stayed in the tent, which was a unique experience. I loved the VW bus out front, it was a cool photo op! The place is decorated very beautifully, chique, surf design. It is quite far from town, unless you have a car, however they do offer shuttles for a fee. The beach is within walking distance, a bit of a trek down the hill.

    I booked breakfast included because I was under the impression that the place was a bit secluded from everything else, when I arrived my breakfast choices was limited to 3 even though the breakfast menu had 8 choices, I spoke to the main desk about it, they said I can order whatever I wanted just pay the difference, but between the language barrier the dining staff couldn’t understand, I returned the tickets and I paid for our breakfast moving forward and never got reimbursed.

    Shower drain was plugged, which made for a gross shower. Staff wasn’t very friendly. Beautiful property, and nice kitchen. Yoga in the mornings, a pool, etc. Nice place to relax or work.

    This was my first Selina hostel experience and my last. It’s a beautiful hostel with a lovely pool and yoga platform if all you care about is taking Instagram photos. It lacks the warmth and care of other hostels, it’s very money grabbing, the restaurant is expensive and not that great (there is a good kitchen to cook your own food if you go to San Juan to buy supplies). There is cr*p loud music all day. Cinema room was broken. Most other hostels look after their guests much better.

    Literally in the middle of nowhere. Barely near the beach and miles from town. It’s $20 USD to get to San Juan. The facilities there are alright and that is the best thing about the hostel.

    Kitchen was very under stocked. Had 2 pots etc. Bathroom in room was very dirty and they didn't bother to empty the bins once full so it was overflowing with toilet paper and sh@# as u can't flush it. I asked twice for it to be done. Loud bad music was not the best to be forced to listen to all day. Overpriced food too.

    Bathrooms are filthy. Staff isn’t very warm. We celebrated our anniversary here, the teepee’s looked really cute. You can’t stand in there and it was so narrow, hard to fit the stuff in. Wifi doesn’t work from the accommodation. Other guests are incredibly arrogant, working on their laptop or being important somehow all day, very unpleasant to be around. It’s very remote, even far from Playa Maderas, there is no supermarket or restaurants close by. They offer highly overpriced but tasty food.
