Property Description

Selina Oaxaca is in the heart of Oaxaca, right near some of the best attractions in the city. A whole new way to stay. Whether you’re a digital nomad, family on vacation or adventurous backpacker, you’ve come to the right place.

Oaxaca is defined by its tree-shaded streets, authentic foodie scene, and intensely beautiful cultural heritage. This colorful destination offers top-class museums, archaeological sites, markets you can get lost in, and wide-open plazas where you can listen to music while you catch your breath. Refuel with some of the best tacos and mezcal in Mexico before diving back into the bohemian bar scene and seriously photogenic street art!
Oaxaca has it all: nearby ruins make for great hiking and nature tours. The city’s colonial past leads to interesting art, culture, museums, and tours. There aren’t enough hours in the day to see – and taste – everything Oaxaca has to offer.

Stay in our dormitories, standard, deluxe, or private rooms. Selina’s dorms are not like you’d find in your typical hostel. We set the standard at a whole new level with a seating area, your own light, a personal shelf and locker for each bunk bed to keep your things secure. Bathrooms are shared. Classic Selina design and attention to detail make our dorms and range of private rooms relaxing for everyone.

    Selina was great for us as a couple. If either of us would have traveled alone it could have ended in boredom. Not really busy (was a Sunday night to be fair), no kitchen although it said so at the place. Also some Dormbeds where fairly close without a wall inbetween. For us okay cause we know each bother but I would not have liked to be so close head to head with a stranger. It was clean, showers where nice (cold in the morning, hot at night) and staff was helpful! Rooftop was also nice.

    The hostel is in a beautiful building, very well decorated and clean. Locations is great, very close to the Zocalo with lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The hostel has more of a hotel vibe, and was a little quiet if you wanted to meet other people. Breakfast wasn’t included in our booking which we hadn’t realised. The hostel puts on various activities each evening which is a nice idea. Staff were also very helpful.

    There is no place to hang out (or at least it was under construction while I was there). To expensive for a place without a breakfast. Great location.

    The hostel is decorated very nicely. I was surprised however to discover that the lockers can't actually be locked at all! This made me quite nervous especially as I was sharing a room with 11 strangers!

    As a solo traveler, I wasn’t a big fan of this place since there’s no kitchen and no chill area that is welcoming enough. So didn’t socialize with anyone during my stay. However, everything looks great and stylish. I do think the dormitory’s bathroom could be a cleaner.

    Selina is a good place to stay if you don’t plan on spending any time in the hostel. The room was like a cave.. dark, no windows, a little musty. And the bathrooms were rough. The water never got warm and there was a weird smell. It’s pretty loud in the lobby on the weekends but during the week it was pretty quiet.

    We had stayed in Selina for a night ini Cancun and had high expectations, however we were disappointed. The hostel was beautiful in a great location, but there was just no one there, we had the dorm to ourseleves, which is nothing to do with the hostel at all. Th disappointment was with the reception staff unhelpful every time I asked a question they did not know and did not try to help, even about where things were in the city. No activities either for guests which was a shame.

    The hostel employees stayed up until 12 blasting music in the empty bar upstairs, they treat you like prisoners and are constantly telling you what you arent allowed to do in their hostel. The hostel shoves 10 people into a tiny room with one tiny bathroom and barely any space to move around or get at your shit. they also lock the main doors at 11 and someone got locked out so they banged on the door for an hour at like 2 in the morning because the security guard wasnt there. Idk it just sucked.
