    I’ve stayed at a few Selina’s now and I always find the standard high and reliable. This place is massive but the rooms were large enough, bed clean and comfortable. A nice chilled common areas too and in an awesome location to markets and the airport!

    Kind of expensive for Mexico - but the facilities are excellent, including some incredible common areas / lounge / hangout spaces - that resemble a club rather than a hostel..! The location is convenient, next to the Centro and metro stations - and the staff are attentive and friendly, including the security guards who do a solid job keeping the entrance safe, which is important in a city like CDMX. Clean and well-maintained rooms and bathrooms also - and a generally friendly and social vibe.

    Oven didn’t work and it was disappointing that they didn’t even write a sign or sth. Then I had to warm up my pizza in the microwave

    My general review is good, but i have a complaint. I was there for 4 nights, and 2 of them one guy was sleeping in the bed reserved to me, one time the staff was very useful, they gave a bed in another room, but the other time the staff just say me take a empty bed, so later the real owner of the bed awaked me, very upset, so it was a ugly night for me.

    Very Good

    Pros: - Sprawling and luxurious common areas. Cons: - Incessant traffic noise after 5am. You will not sleep well. - Never received a pillowcase or complete set of sheets. Didn’t even have a base sheet coving the mattress upon arriving late in the evening. - Room had no airflow and the only way to get airflow was to open the patio door, thus increasing the noise of the nonstop car honking. Summary: An average hostel that is not worthy of the Selina brand.

    Rooms were clean but bathrooms were always gross. No real atmosphere and wouldn't recommend if you want to meet people. Better hostels for cheaper in CDMX.

    This "hotel/hostel" has a bit of an identity crisis. It doesnt know if its a hotel or a hostel. It has a bar and stores but you have to pay for a blanket and towel. I was first given a room/bed that was fully occupied. They moved me to a second room and the bathroom door would not lock at all so i had to have maintenance. The elevator didnt work and was not fixed the next day or the day after as promised. My "bed" didnt have a eled socket or lamp or side stand. Do not recommend

    Toilet clogged upon arrival. This is a huge hotel hostel that has 5 plus floors. Not very intimate like smaller hostels. Very loud music in the main lobby like all the comments are saying. You have to pay for breakfast. Shower was cold water only. Gross hair and stuff everywhere. Damp and hot rooms. Elevator broken. They overbooked me too. Had to wait 30 min for them to sort out another room. Hit up another hostel for a better experience for a little bit more.

    I don’t typically give bad reviews to hostels but I feel like selina isn’t really a hostel. I was frustrated for a few reasons: they charged me more than the website price with no explanation (everyone should double check the amount they’re being charged when they walk in), the facilities were pretty gross (cockroaches in the bathrooms and no air ventilation in the dorms), and there’s no social scene to speak of. I would definitely recommend staying in other hostels in Mexico City.
