    The place blew my mind. It’s a resort! Absolutely beautiful. Had the most amazing stay, extended 3 times. Rooms were perfect, stayed in 8 bed dorm which was 4 upstairs and 4 down. Fully kitted out. Super comfortable beds. The staff are incredible. Everyone of them. Met some amazing people. Like a real family. Best “hostel” I’ve ever stayed at. Gracias por todo Selina Nosara, te quiero muchísimo 😃

    INCREDIBLE. Just insane that this is even a hostel. The BEST hostel I've stayed in around the world. It's absolutely stunning, the bathroom was stunning, I felt like I was staying in a fancy hotel not a shared dorm room. This hostel also attracted a nice, conscientious crowd. The party nights were the best in the area and would always finish at a sensible time so you could both party and get a good nights sleep. It has it's own private forest walk to the beach. THE BEST PLACE EVER.

    More of a resort feel to this hostel! Lots of facilities to use and the communal areas are amazing (especially the pool). Walking to the beach is about 20 min but I think a tuk tuk back is only a small cost. Overall a great place and we would have liked to have stayed longer than 2 nights

    I had the best stay in a long time at this property, and during a week where it was the highest of the summer season. Selina doesn’t disappoint when it comes to having the best vibe to meet people and make new friends.

    SUCH a fun place to be if you're looking to meet people but also connect with the culture of Costa Rica. So many cool events and opportunities offered right from Selina. Highly recommend and will be staying there again!

    Super great place and the nicest hostel I’ve ever stayed in. It actually feels a bit more like a resort. The only issue is the location. It’s far from the beach and not an easy walk. There are Tuk-Turks, which are small carts that operate as taxis. They’re really easy to find but feel a little bit unsafe at times, like riding around on a golf cart. The Selina is definitely the nicest hostel in Nosara though.

    Felt a bit resort-like. Staff could’ve been a bit more helpful at the front desk, a few appeared confused and waiting for help from other staff members so information was not given clearly and correctly. Only accept cash colonies for towel rental but no atm on site and do not accept USD or card. No way to convert USD to colones on site or warning prior. Need a tuktuk to get anywhere.

    Really nice pool and big rooms. Definitely an older crowd and was dead at 9pm most nights. Pretty far away from playa guiones.

    I loved staying in this hostel!! It was beautiful , very clean and absolutely massive so you could decide if you wanted to socialize or have some quite time. It is a bit out of the main strip so you have to walk 15-20 minutes or get a 5 minutes Tuk Tuk to get to most of the restaurants and bars but most people like us rented atvs to commute. It definitely had more of a coworking vibe than the other selina I went to but it was super chill and still very easy to make friends as a solo non working traveller! I

    Amazing place to stay at although it’s a bit far from the main town and beach. You always need to take a tuk tuk. But very nice facilities and recommendable.
