    The most expensive Selina we stayed at but really worth it! We had the best parties there, met amazing people and it’s right on the beach! Will be back for sure!

    Nice hostel, air con a major plus. Pool and bar area are nice - great for socialising. Visited off season but still enough people round to meet for a solo traveller. Can imagine it can be quite a good party in high season. Some noise in dorm from co work space above. Liked the kitchen area being outside so it wasn’t smelly and stuffy, of course a few ants but was enerally kept really clean. Beds were really comfortable. Easy walk or cycle into town, good location to cycle to nicer beaches.

    Comfortable rooms, ocean side walk into town is really nice and staff is helpful but check in takes forever. Also the atmosphere and the food were ok but just not as good as in the other Selina's I've stayed in. Especially portion size was way too small imo.

    Very clean and comfortable rooms and great restaurant and bar, great live music every night. Rooms are quiet too. It’s farther out of town than you think and it’s a rough walk to do in the dark or carrying big backpacks, and that makes it so they charge a bit more stuff. Didn’t get a warm welcome at reception and tours seemed extra expensive so we didn’t want to book those here. I wouldn’t stay here if I were alone. Plus you can’t swim on the beach right by the hostel, you have to walk a ways

    Impossible to sleep in the 12 people bedroom! Bathrooms are like prison toilets, very uncomfortables, location is not the best so you’re forced to rent a bike or walk a long distance to get food or restaurants. Not like other selina hostels that I’ve been. There are better and cheaper options in town. Staff was great

    The place was nice but our dorm was across the street which isn’t even pictured here so we were much more withdrawn from any sort of atmosphere. Pool and tight on the beach but a little bit of a walk to get to town.
