Property Description

Selina has just opened its doors in San Jose, one of the most exciting cities in Central America. The up-and-coming Costa Rican capital will certainly surprise those adventurous spirits willing to explore it, and our brand-new location is the perfect place to do it from. A truly unique hostel concept, we bring together travelers from all walks of life. Whether you’re laid back, entrepreneurial, or something in between, your stay with Selina will inspire you.

Our new space features rooms for every budget. Our dorms, hammocks, and camping area provide a truly communal experience, while the standard rooms are perfect for those seeking privacy. If luxury is what you want, check out one of our private suites. When you need to go online, enjoy our comfy co-working space.

    Wow! Incredible! It's like walking into a high end resort at a fraction of the price. Staff are awesome and extremely helpful. Beds are very comfortable, security is top notch, and it's located pretty much in the centre of the city. If there's any rub, and this is being picky, the size makes it a little bit more difficult to meet others. Highly recommended...spoil yourself!

    Hostel had a great atmosphere like many Selina’s do. It was in a good location close to many restaurants and bars within walking distance. Felt safe to walk during the day and night. Rooms are pretty basic, could have better lighting. The only thing We didn’t like was that our room was right beside a common area outside and the window barley closed.. we could hear everyone’s conversations well into the early morning. Other than that good value for what you pay.

    Spent 2 nights here in a private room before moving on from San Jose. While the room was a little basic, it was clean and functional. I really appreciated the atmosphere of the common areas though. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food on offer was good. Overall I had a good experience here.

    The hostel is located ok and front desk and security and great. But the cleaning staff is questionable. My bed was sandy and sheets smelled. I went to the front desk twice and nothing was done. Also found a small roach in the bathroom. Very disappointing.
