    The hostel staff were extremely accommodating when an issue happened with our booking and sorted the problem out quickly and efficiently which we really appreciated. A lovely swimming pool- right on the sea. Lots of events in the evenings Really good kitchen- lots of equipment and space We hired bikes through the hostel which was also really good- would 100% recommend

    Great party hostel, good atmosphere with loads of locals and travellers so a really easy place to make friends. Loads of activities/ tours on offer. Great wifi and cowork spaces. Staff are super friendly and helpful. I do think it's overpriced compared to other hostels, I understand paying a bit more because it is a great hostel but I think it is incredibly expensive for what you get.

    Really appreciate that there was filtered water available! Some hostels in the area do not offer that.

    Good atmosphere here, met some great people. Good starting place for a night out. It’s a bit of a walk from the main town but a 5 minute cycle away if you hire a bike.

    Best staff I ever had. Helpful, nice and friendly. Food orders take a while and the alma beer was not always available. Shared area (kitchen/bar/pool) are very clean, rooms are okay. Location is a bit out of town but close to the nice beaches.

    Had a great stay at the Selina. Lots of fun on the weekend! Great idea to have access keys on wristbands, but our door consistently took multiple tries to open. A little annoying, but overall enjoyed our stay.

    Stayed in a private room, and didn’t have wifi at all.. the staff kept telling us they would do something about it, but never did.. Not worth the money overall

    Way overpriced for what you get. Much better options around Puerto Viejo and surrounds.

    The Selina is quite far from the middle of town which isn’t ideal due to recent issues in Puerto Viejo.The set up isn’t great for socialising as the main restaurant area is split up so can’t mingle very easily. We had to cross a busy road every time we wanted to go to our dorm. They had a nice pool area and had a small beach and was locked very close to a larger beach. Staff were often unhelpful, particularly when it came to laundry. Staff in the restaurant were very lovely and friendly though.
