    Well positioned hostel, loved the pod beds with plenty of shelf space, personal light and plugs. Bathroom needs more ventilation. It was nice to be in a jacuzzi on the Atlantic!

    Very beautiful hostel in a great location. The dorm was quite crowded and there’s only one bathroom per dorm. The lockers are also way too small to store a bag in, but apart from that it’s very peaceful and the breakfast is pretty good.

    My friend and I did a roadtrip along the coastline and this hostel was perfect for that. We were so surprised by how beautiful and chill the hostel was. In the evening, we would sit on the terrace or in the hottub as the sun was going down. Absolutely recommend if you want a hostel where you can relax.

    Good choice, I would definitely come here again. Location is excellent and the rooftop is wonderful. For dorm beds (in Portugal), I do think the price is a bit steep. But I will say, they have done what they could to make the dorm sleeping experience as comfortable as possible - blackout privacy curtains, secure storage (and a socket inside the locker!), very comfy mattress. It feels like a capsule hotel more than a bunk bed.

    I had the most amazing time at Selina Milfontes. The hostel was beautiful, clean, quiet but also had an amazing social aspect to it as well. The view was beautiful and only a 5-10 min walk to the beach. I cannot wait to come back here.

    I enjoyed my stay at Selina - it's a good place to hunker down and work for a few days. However, there aren't so many practical places for digital nomads to sit inside. You could sit outside in the bar area but you end up bouncing between areas because the music is fairly loud. I loved the location so close to the river mira and the staff. However, the food menu and room prices are ridiculously high for what you are getting. 8 bed dorm for 28 euros, my friend paid 36?! Needs work.
