    Can’t fault this Selina. We’ve stayed in three so far and this has been the best by far! Reyner helped us out so much during our stay. We planned on staying for 2 nights and ended up staying 8, we loved it so much!

    I can’t say enough good things about Selina Puerto Viejo! This is my second Selina I stayed at and both places were great. Vibe was good, staff were great especially Walter! The rooms have AC, fans and every bed has a shelf and a plug. Wifi is fantastic throughout entire hostel. The only thing I would say is the bathrooms could use a huge facelift. Highly recommend !

    Nice vibes in the hostel. Funky design but getting rundown. Bathrooms etc are a bit dirty and walls crumbling. You cannot swim in the closest beach to the hostel but there are swimming beaches nearby. Bike rental is more expensive than most other places in the area.

    Muy buen ambiente y clima tanto de huéspedes como del staff. Respecto a la ubicacion, un tanto alejado del centro pero mas proximo a las playas mas bonitas de la zona. Limpieza en los cuartos y cocina no era la mejor. Recomiendo pero advirtiendo este aspecto

    About a 10 minute walk from town - really nice hostel though. Rooms are pretty dated, but it’s comfortable. Overpriced.

    Very Good

    It’s next to coccles beach and surf spot so good location for that, but it’s a 15 min walk to the puerto town centre. Kitchen was always pretty dirty. Had events on at night such as open mic, bands and dancing which was really fun. Good chill out area and pool. Selina’s is Selina’s tho, they’re kinda big hotels with dorms, as it’s big it can be kinda hard to meet people and it doesn’t have that family hostel vibe that other places do. But you know what you’re gonna get, it’s a safe bet.

    Very Good

    I stayed in the deluxe private room with a bathroom. I have stayed in the dorms and this was a very nice change. Room was big and clean, had three towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner. It was basically like staying at an actual hotel.

    + the staff at receptions are nice - especially the girl with the very long dark hair. - I’ve never experienced a bathroom so disgusting in my life. I’m not actually sure anyone ever cleans it - it constantly smells - The kitchen is also super unhygienic. I once asked for it to be cleaned as it was hideous - Also the vibe is a little weird - I had a few awkward comments from one of the male workers - One room also has smashed tiles all over the floor. For the price, selina need to improve!
