    Selina Playa Venao is one of my favorite hostels in the world! It is literally right on the beach, there is an excellent vibe, great surf, fun parties, and funny staff. Lots of Israelis! Both staff & staying there. Be aware that on Friday and Saturday they usually have parties until 4AM and if you're staying in the dorms you likely won't sleep much till they are over. Excellent place to learn surfing! While a bit pricey ($40/lesson) the instructions are excellent.

    I was here for NYE and had such an amazing time. Made great friends, danced, hung out by the awesome pool, some of our group surfed, and we tried some of the great restaurants nearby. The food at Selina itself was not great and quite expensive, but the location and facilities more than made up for that. And drinks were reasonably priced. The dorm was really clean and beds were super comfy, would definitely stay here again! A happy place for sure.

    I loved my stay here, but it has a weird atmosphere. In the words of a worker who I agree with, the place feels "cliquey". Half of the staff/guests are basically an Isreali boys club who just hang out with eachother...which makes for a bit of a high school vibe. Aside from that and the abysmally slow bar service, I really couldn't recommend this place enough. Clean rooms, wonderful facilities, a beautiful place. I'd definitely recommend to a friend.

    Great location right on the beach. Bit tricky as a solo traveller as there's a cliquey vibe but I was still pretty happy here chilling out. Surf board rental is extortionate however, definitely unnecessarily expensive. Food was nice and having the kitchen too is a bonus. Bring supplies from bigger towns as the minimart nearby is somewhat limited and not cheap

    Spent Christmas time on the beach surfing which was amazing. Very resort-like feel; doesn’t really feel like a hostel except for the rooms. My only complaint is the same as almost all the Selinas I’ve been to, which is this: the travelers who stay there seem to be the “popular” “hotties” and there is almost a high school type “cliqueyness” that seems to pervade the common areas.
