    The place has sooo many amenities (including a cinema and library room!) and is a great price since there are not many hostels in the area. The location is not close by the beach but that's just Nosara and tuk tuks are available. The place was fully booked by a film crew so not many people there but the manager Kendall was the best! He made the stay enjoyable for all the guest and also made sure everything was running smoothly!

    Selina Nosara was a great hostel with an awesome vibe, fantastic staff, and even better facilities. The pool and common areas made it feel more like a resort than a hostel, but with young people around which made it awesome! Food was delicious and fairly priced. A bit out of town but the walk down the road was about 15 mins, or you could take jungle trails to town/the beach which took about 20. Only complaint was that the welcome drink was non-alcoholic (lol)!!! Would most definitely stay again.

    Very pretty place to stay. Looks like a little village in the jungle. I stayed in 12 people dorm, basic but has plugs and overhead lamps for each bed. The showers are nice and spacious. Common areas look like were in a 4 star hotel. Wow!

    I’ve been staying at hostels all over the world for 5+ years, and this is by far the nicest hostel facility I’ve ever seen. It’s more like a 5 star resort than a hostel. A few, problems... they said location is in the “heart of everything” and that is so far from the truth (read other reviews). It’s aprox a 20 min walk down a VERY dusty road, that at night has no lights so bring a torch. Asides from that, great place! I did wish there was more of a atmosphere, but I think they was just timing.

    The hangout spaces (pool decks, bar/restaurant, etc.) were AMAZING and by far the nicest I've ever seen in a Hostel. The dorm rooms weren't bad, but definitely "just okay". It was a bit further from the beach and main town area than I would have liked to have been, but still walkable (~:20 away?). Overall, a decent choice for a budget traveler.

    The hostel really is nice, the only and really negative experience I had was with the payment. When we arrived I wanted to pay by credit card but after the guy at the reception put it in he said that the machine wasn’t workinand we should pay in cash. I asked for a receipt, but he said it was unnecessary, it would be saved in the computer. Few days later I saw that my credit card was charged anyway and now I‘m struggling with getting the money back because I have no proof of the cash transaction

    The facilities are what make this hostel great: we enjoyed the bar and the movie theater. Loved our private and it had the most comfortable bed of our trip. There were a few drawbacks: 1) checkin took ~1hour and as a result were told we were too late for the welcome drinks. 2) It was a little disorganized - room keycards weren't labelled so we stood there while they tested each keycard at our room's front door. 3) walk is ~15-20min to beach along the road (a little sketchy at night)

    We were five people there and unfortunately, we got there doing their reconstruction of basically all the facilities except the pool. Which meant we had to go ask the reception every time we needed to cook, to figure out which suite to take -where there mostly wasn’t enough equipment for five people... unfortunately ruined the experience a lot for us, as we planned to go there to relax
