    I was immediately impressed walking into the Norsara Selina. We had forgotten to reserve ahead of time and the staff, Celine as I recall, was very accommodating in finding us a place to stay. The atmosphere truly made the stay at Selina superior to any other across Costa Rica. Highly recommend anyone traveling through the country make a detour to Selina. All of the staff were very kind and went above/beyond to make our experience second to none, especially Celine!

    Lovely place, good for having fun with friends and partying but also for quiet relaxing time. Really rare to find a place that does both well. Staff is amazing, especially Kiki! The food, the nature, the monkeys, the design of the place... all amazing.

    A center of a social life in Nosara with a lot of included activities (Yoga, Salsa night, Karaoke, Live music). The location is the only one negative point - you should either go 15 min on a road (kind of dangerous) or take a tuc tuc (5 Dollars in one direction)

    Really nice amenities and spacious dorms. They could actually probably fit a few more beds to make it a bit more cost effective. It is a bit pricy but so is everything else in the area.

    In a few words: Perfect hostel for young people but also for everbody top place to stay. Super service, nice personal, great people and all that in the paradies of Nosara. The only thing is the way to the beach - but no worries there are a lot of tuctuc - uncomplicated! All two days is an event in the evening with amazing atmosphere - you will for sur met good people there

    This was my first time at a Selina and I loved it!! It is a cross between a resort and a hostel and I can't wait to go back and relax at the pool again. The crowd is a little older than at typical hostels and there are a fair number of people working remotely while here but everyone is very friendly. The staff was great, very tolerant and never pushy. The food is more on par with a resort than a hostel but the kitchen is nice if you want to cook your own food.

    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.

    very money oriented. it’s all about profit at this place. as long as you’re spending money, they will welcome you. and as long as you’re spending money you’ll have a good time. staff are all dope. management is a bit lame. the local pig is fun. weekend parties are legit but they double the price for every bed.

    Location is quite isolated. The hostel is amazing in terms of facilities and cleanliness but overall quite pricey. The salsa was great. Not ideal for backpackers as not very sociable.
