    Nice stay, overpriced for a Selina, especially since the location is a 20 minute walk back into town where they suggest you don’t walk alone

    We stayed only 1 night. It was a friday night and there was a DJ live set, which was amazing. Lots of locals and travellers came for the party, it was super crowded (in a good way) given it was a long weekend. Only little problem is that they made a mistake on our booking, my bf and I were supposed to have a double bed but ended up with a private twin bunk-bed because hostel was overbooked (long weekend). Like other Selinas, food and drinks menu are great. Pool was great and well maintained.

    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!

    Selina was nice and a big property. The Tee Pee I stayed in was cute and a nice size with a mosquito net. The bed wasn't that comfortable and the pillows were really not good for my neck. I never ate here and did not use the pool. I thought their bike rental was pretty lame as you have to return the bike by 8pm. I was a little disappointed with that because I like to use the bikes to get around as they are handy when I want to use it! I won't be staying at Selina's again. Quite pricey too..

    The stay was overall good. The pros out way the cons. The amenities are great (but the yoga mats were really dirty), the restaurant onsite is convenient, the beach front location was great, the staff was... so-so but there were some exceptions!

    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

    Our stay was good, staff became really rude towards the end of our trip for unknown reasons. The drinks are super overpriced, I recommend buying a bottle and drinking that as it costs the same as two cocktails. The food is ok. Included breakfast was worth it. It wasn’t much of a party hostel which is what I was expecting. I had a private room with private bathroom which was amazing, clean and they did housekeeping. The last night I had to move to shared bathroom which was outside and not nice.

    My friend got robbed, the bathrooms are outside of your room so when its raining (every night) you need to run to the bathroom and avoid getting soaked. The staff was the only positive part about this stay. It is pretty far from the city centre which is inconvenient. The pizza was delicious tho (depending on which chef you got that day).
