    Good hostel with a lot of potential, located right on the beech and in the centre of town. Nice pool, cool hang out areas, and decent kitchen. Bar is ridiculously expensive, hostel is full of pot smoking anti social Israelis, gringos do not stay here

    Despite being really modern and having a nice beachside restaurant, the atmosphere was not very friendly. The prices go up every weekend so we ended up spending more to be in a room with 2 beds to stay together but ended up being separated. The beds were really hard and it was loud all night because of the music next door but it wasn't a bad place to crash after a night out when you won't be sleeping much anyways and it was nice to be in such a central location

    Beautiful place but music was way too loud and felt like a pool club rather than a hostel. Not super easy to meet people. Awesome beach location and decent pool.

    Great spot for the price. Right in the center though, so it's loud 24/7. The vibe of the hostel was also strange, it was hard to meet people. Most of the staff had an attitude. Our AC was broken, and even after calling someone to fix it, I woke up sweating both nights. The shower was extremely slipper and I almost fell several times, a danger for sure. Have to pay $1 for towels. No lock or lockers in the storage room, everything is just left out and can be accessed by anyone in town.

    Nice facilities but the noise from the street is absolutely unrelenting. I stayed 2 nights in another hostel and then moved here, absolutely regretted it. You can't escape the noise which drove me insane, and even though I was keen to party, it's nice to be able to sit somewhere in the afternoon away from the noise!

    Selena could be a very cool, upscale hostel in the middle of town BUT the facilities are dirty and the shower did not work at all. The shower head was broken and only had two little streams coming from it, very hard to shower with. I paid for a cheaper room so I was expecting small but the room was tiny and had no shelves or wall hangers to put our stuff. Even just a couple on the back of the door would be great.

    Worst Selina I have stayed at. The kitchen was so under equipped. Lucky to find a fork and a bowl. There was a dead cockroach in the kitchen for 2 days. We told staff and the next night the cockroach was still there. The kitchen was too dirty to eat breakfast in so we sat by the pool and were told we had to eat in the kitchen. We explained it was dirty and did not want to eat in there and the staff said it was not his problem... toilets and showers hardly worked. 2nd building not very secure.

    We stayed in the second building which has the dorms, which was fine but extremely loud! Staff were not interested when we told them that the kitchen was so disgusting we didn’t want to eat in it when we were told we couldn’t eat outside. In fact one of the staff said “It’s not my problem” after telling them there was a dead cockroach in the cupboard. Also the worst stocked kitchen ever. Cinema room was “under repair”. Location ok and pool area nice.

    Worst hostel I have ever been in. Not clean, bad bugs, the staff were horrible I had to wait for 20 mins until I got me and my friend a towel after we all ready paid them. They put this none stop music out side from 7 am- 12 pm, maybe they got confused with club lost i don't know what they thinking. The kitchen is awful and for last I got charged 20 dollers extra for a booking i didn't make and refused without explanation to give me my money back. I don't recommend for any one to ever come here
