    Some people didn’t like how the hostel was so far away from the town and the market but I loved it! It was great being up in the mountains. Jacuzzis are fun and it’s only a 20 minute walk to two different cloud forests and the wholefoods market. Staff were super friendly and the best so far on my trip!

    Nicest and cleanest hostel I stayed at in Costa Rica! Beautiful upscale property! Loved the fireplace in the common room and pool table! Super helpful reception and decent bar/restaurant. 4/5 for atmosphere. It wasn't particularly social but I still had a nice time and met people as a solo traveller. I see the downside of the location being so far out of town but actually really enjoyed being in the tranquil moutains.

    Really nice hostel- little bit further out from Santa elena (10 min taxi) but we didn’t mind this because the hostel organises all the tours which pick you up from the hostel anyway. The kitchen is really well equipped & lots of areas to sit. The addition of the outside hot tubs is amazing & the whole vibe of the hostel is great.

    Did the job. The social space is nice and there are outdoor hot tubs which is a good addition. Dorm was quite basic without privacy curtains. Cleaned daily. Staff informed and friendly. Can book everything you need from the front desk. It’s a taxi ride away from Santa Elena town where all the ATMs and restaurants are which is a bit of a pain. I was ill when here so can’t really comment on the social vibe. I did notice they had welcome drinks so that could be a good time to meet people if solo.

    I checked my grandmother with crippling dementia into an old folks home in Northern Scotland last year, and I am certain there was more atmosphere there than Selina Monteverde.

    Staff not very helpful also to book a shuttle through them, they charge you an extra $15 - CRAZY! Book your shuttles directly yourself. Kitchen was super nice and clean. The area is lovely and jacuzzi is beautiful. Beware this hostel is very far out of the town, it will cost you $10 to get from hostel to the town for groceries, atm, bus. Not good if you’re on a budget.

    We did laundry here and our clothes got mixed up with someone else’s. All of our clothes that were washed have also been shrunk. We also had an issue where our room door security system was broken and therefore didn't lock, meaning anyone could walk in and out of our room. This was not sorted for 2 days. The menu at this Selina is poor for dinner options and it is far from town to get traditional food. Most staff at reception were not friendly but some staff were great.
