Property Description

Selina is without a doubt where you want to stay in Santa Teresa. The biggest hostel on the main road, our 4-story building totally vibes with the town’s artistic environment. Our restaurant and bar features a diverse menu, and you can connect to the best Wi-Fi in town at our co-working space. If you’re coming to surf, some of the best breaks in Costa Rica are just a short walk away.

Santa Teresa is a real paradise for those who want to relax and be thrilled. Its white sand beaches are surrounded by jungle, with sunsets over the Pacific that will leave you breathless. World-class surfing draws both experts and beginners, while nature lovers won’t want to miss its exotic tropical treasures. Santa Teresa has something for everyone. If surfing or paddle boarding aren’t your thing (although you might learn while you’re here), feel free to simply take in the sun at one of the many beaches in town, or snorkel among some amazing marine fauna. Inland, you can take ATV or horseback-riding tours to the falls on Montezuma or hike the Cabo Blanco nature reserve. The nightlife is as varied as the terrain, with everything from local dance halls to international DJs vying for your attention.

At Selina Santa Teresa North we’ll accommodate you no matter your budget. Our shared dorms foster community while providing comfort, and our private rooms offer privacy, a cool vibe, and beautiful views. We have a camping area as well.

    Very clean, comfrey beds, nice staff but no welcome drinks to meet other travelers and they played a film very loud in the bar area so you couldn’t talk to anyone

    I wanted to love this hostel because the location is unbeatable, the facilities are amazing, and especially when you walk in you get this like "wow!" vibe. But in the end it was just okay, and very expensive. The dorm room I had was big, and the beds were comfortable with curtains. My bathroom was pretty clean, but the toilet did not flush the last 2 days. My biggest complaint was the not so social atmosphere. I had a very hard time meeting people here, unlike most other hostels I stayed in.

    I did love Selina North (although I didn’t explore south!) the bedrooms were a good size, the pool was a welcome amenity, (although not enough sun beds around it!) it was a short walk to the beach and lovely little boutique stores either side. Wonderful hot showers. Only qualm is service for food / drinks could have been a lot quicker.

    Pool and dorm facilities were nice. Lots of people in and out of the rooms that don’t get locked. There aren’t security lockers in the room either but nothing was ever stolen so I guess it’s fine🤷🏻‍♀️. It was very good vibes overall but very expensive if you book last minute. It was close to the beach. People here seem to be in the younger age group.

    The hostel is wonderful, it has a pool and everything. The staff is friendly. Only problem is that it’s overpriced. I paid $65 for a bunk bed per night… I don’t think it’s worth that much. But yeah it’s amazing!

    Location, vibe and common areas are awesome. The dorms are nice and aircon is a plus, however the mattresses are absolute garbage, softest, most uncomfortable beds i've ever slept in. Slept in two dorm rooms and all mattresses were super soft and worn, laying down made them bend up on the sides. Considering it's a great hostel overall and not the cheapest you guys should really spend a little on new mattresses. Slept terrible for two nights in a row.

    My first time staying at a Selena and it wasn’t what I was expecting. Hostel is clean and the dorm room itself and pool were nice. However, the staff and atmosphere were lacking. The staff doesn’t show you around the hostel/to your room or explain how things work. Didn’t feel welcomed at all. Kitchen was very overcrowded and there wasn’t any space for my food. The hostel is located on the main road, so depending where your room is, it is extremely noisy late at night and early morning.
