    We had the best time staying at this hostel. The only issue was our shower drain was slow but everything else was amazing. The staff are super friendly and we hope to stay at Selina in the future.

    Marvelous gem in a filthy city. Squeaky clean, top notch facilities, a dance floor, what more do you want? San Jose sucks but if you have to stay in the city, stay there!

    Great hostel to stay at even if it's for a few nights! Can't go wrong. I especially loved interacting with the staff here and the guests. The staff was super communicative and helpful. I had a great time getting to know Juan Carlos, Janette, Mairom, Bryan, Candy and Geraldine. They will help you with pretty much anything and make great drinks too :) Highly recommend!
