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.

Unfortunately, our restaurant and pool will be temporarily closed due to remodeling. Please excuse us and apologize for the inconvenience caused.

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. Congregate with fellow travelers at our pool, common area, video room, playground, or yoga deck. Our guests are all part of the same tribe.

    I had a great stay at Selina Santa Teresa. While it was quite quiet at night and can be tough to meet people, the facilities were clean and the staff was helpful. With so many renovations going on during the day (restaurant and bar remodel, pool work) it can get noisy, but the beach is steps away, & you can always surf! The surf staff were friendly and helpful, in particular Danny and the 2 Andrés'. The packages offered for trips can be very expensive, so shop around if you are price sensitive.

    You can definitely find what you're looking for here - whether it's new friends, guidance on activities, a relaxed environment, or the party, Selina in North Santa Teresa has it all. I especially enjoyed the easy access to the surf life here. Adventurers from all over the world are easy to meet here and talk to.

    I've been to several of the Selina CR Locations, and I believe this is the one that needs to improve to reach the same level as the others. Usually Selina is icon for good attitude and party, and meeting people. This one just lacks on this part.

    I’ve stayed at Selina’s before but the customer service at this one is just the worst. When asking about shuttles the person in the reception was sending voice messages and texting her friends at the same time. Our ac didn’t work properly resulting in a very hot room, and when we asked the reception for the remote they said that they couldn’t be bothered to find it after a long day of work. We payed the full total upon arrival but were still told we had to pay more when checking out.

    Disappointed no one let us know the facilities were not available! Should be told when booking. On arrival our receptionist seemed uninterested and on the whole had a negative experience.

    No atmosphere, very “flashpacker”. Staff are quite rude and unhelpful (e.g they don’t show you to your room or give you brief tour of the facilities) I checked out as soon as I saw my room, dirty dorm; they refused to refund me. I would not recommend to stay here, go stay at a local hostel that is run by fellow travelers where it’s easy to meet people and actually has an atmosphere.
