    Excelente!! La recepción nos atendió increíble, la recepcionista nos trató muy amable, su platica fue muy amena, nos dieron un upgrade de la habitación sin costo alguno. Desde la entrada tenían todo el protocolo de desinfección, a pesar de que el bar y el restaurante estaban cerrados por la contingencia el staff se ofreció a proporcionarnos tanto comida o bebida. Muy contentos con nuestra estadía en Selina. La ubicación es perfecta!!

    The hostel was ok. Room was nice. Seems like cleaning staff is overwhelmed. Bathrooms where dirty with stacks of toilet paper everywhere that where dirty. No sope in bathrooms was really gross since the outbreak.

    Great hostel atmosphere in the common areas and amazing staff. Not the best location if you like having bars and restaurants super close by, but it's within walking distance of some great sightseeing and shopping during the day time. Amazing balconies. Bathrooms were pretty bad though, not regularly cleaned nor restocked with soap while I was there.

    I expected more. I’ve stayed in some great Selinas in Latin America and this wasn’t one of them. Location sucked. Amenities were minimal. No social experience. Why would you charge us to wash the towels? Are you guys really that stingy that you can’t provide soap/shampoo in the bathrooms despite having numerous locations around the world. I took a chance despite the 7.9 but after my experience you don’t even deserve that. 7.0 at best..

    Over 50% of washrooms were under construction on my floor. Perhaps they can do better in phasing it. Loundry service sucks. It is over double the market price. Still i gave them my laundry. After 24 hr when it was suppose to be ready I was told it was not done and it’s uncertain when can be done !!

    Selina was quiet big and felt more like a hotel than a hostel. It was very overpriced, the bathrooms dirty and just half bathrooms of our floor were working. I wouldn't recommend Selina in Mexico City and would go to Casa Pepe instead
