    I was not here very long as we arrived late and left early, but from what I experienced it was an absolutely beautiful hostel, the pizzas in the restaurant are amazing, and it has a beautiful wellness deck that looks out over the stars at night. the jacuzzis were amazing to use after a day of driving. The staff were great about helping us plan our tour early that morning for the day as well as transportation to our next location. Make sure you bring a jacket, it gets cold as hell here at night!

    It felt like I was in a resort the whole time I was here! Travelers and hosts were so nice and the whole place was clean and gorgeous. I could walk to the cloud forest and to beautiful view points. Would highly recommend to any kind of traveler!

    We really enjoyed our stay at Selinas. The facilities were all great (jacuzzis, fire pit area, restaurant/bar area and the kitchen/lounge area downstairs) the rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff were helpful. Different activities each evening (salsa, yoga, live music etc) and a nice chilled vibe. The location is near the cloud forest but a little bit outside of town. Would be better if you had a car. Would stay again.

    My experience at this hostel was great, although I’ve spent most of the time on the jacuzzi because the weather was cloudy and windy the whole time, which was a great experience and relaxing!! The food is overpriced, in my opinion, not much nightlife at the hostel, at least on the days I was there. Besides that, the hostel is great, nice facilities, staff is friendly and caring. The supermarket and closest village is really far and the cloudy park is about 5/10 minutes far.

    I would love to see an ashtray of some sorts of friends instead of cigarette butts all over the ground. They need a bigger inside seating area for supper and bar entertainment. Other than that it was really good location was kind of bad due to the big steep hills

    This was the nicest Selina we stayed at in Costa Rica! The dorm rooms were very nice and comfortable (could use curtains however). The location was perfect if your fine eating at the hostel (which had good food!). We we’re only there for two nights and we got everything in that we wanted to see. Far from town very secluded but close to cloud forest! Not much to see or do around so I would only suggest 2 nights here!

    The hostel is nice, but definitely be aware of the location. It is around 1-2 km from the city center, and there are not many other restaurants or shops nearby. It is near the Cloud Forest (15 minute walk), which has paid admission ($25 USD). The food at the in-house restaurant is very good, though a bit expensive. The hot tubs outside are nice, as is the common area/restaurant.

    Nice hostel. It’s pretty far from the main area, but we had a car so it was fine. The road up to the hostel is terrible though so drive carefully. Hot tubs weren’t very hot lol. Also, food and drinks from their restaurant were pretty expensive so again if you don’t have a car you’d have to get a taxi into town to get groceries or other food if you don’t want to pay for theirs.

    Nice jacuzzies! Comfy bed. No sunday brunch as advertised. Yoga room is great although you have to pay extra for classes and the schedule was giving wrong infos. Restaurant quite pricy but ok kitchen to use. Very clise to cloud forest but far away from santa elena (try hitchhike it usually works).

    Actually further away than advertised (in the website). Also, the walk is super steep, coming down to the town isnt that big a deal (30-40 min walk) but coming back up is hard work. You better not forget anything and plan carefully. Staff was no help, made mistakes with reservations or failing to book shuttles or similar. Had to extend my stay for one night and that was a whole mess, made me checkout and checkin again, change to another IDENTICAL room, they could’ve save me some time and hassle.
