    We had a fantastic time at Selina South. The atmosphere, staff and overall experience was outstanding. Delmar&Hanna went above and beyond to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. They gave us excellent recommendations, directions and were very friendly & knowledgeable.We had the pleasure of meeting the manager and wellness coordinator, both ladies had an incredible energy about them. We truly felt at home. The Yoga classes & morning coffee was a great touch, we will definitely be back again!

    Me and my friends were really happy staying in this place! Beautiful and good location! This Selina is more like a hotel vibe but one of the nicest I’ve seen. Good job!

    Beautiful hostel with comfortable beds, nice lounge areas and a great co-working space in the north part of town. Location is awesome next to a grocery store, tons of restaurants and the beach is just across the street and down a nice trail. Totally great set up. Might have been an off-week, but it felt like no one was there and there weren't any activities or ways to engage with other travelers. It felt a bit isolating traveling alone and staying there. Could have been an off-week?

    This hostel is as beautiful + clean as the photos but its very far from the other Selina which has more services, bar/food, better staff + is in a better area of ST (but does look dirtier/smellier). It takes 30mins walking up an extremely dusty road (you'll be fully engulfed by dust) + very much needs a complimentary shuttle service + to be better connected with the other site (otherwise just don't call it Selina?). We wanted to do yoga + surfing but the host was VERY unapproachable + unhelpful

    Just don't think I got much value for the money spent here. I had a private room with shared bathroom - the room was nice but tiny and the bathroom was kinda gross. There was also a bright light outside my room that glared onto my bed all night - as the curtains are semi-sheer. Pool area is not as nice as it looks in pic b/c it's basically in a parking lot. No social atmosphere/vibe here at all. Location was great though.

    Lacks atmosphere and with that not many people staying there. Photos always look so good online for Selina’a but up close it’s shoddy, bathroom was dirty. Weirdly there were two dorms in the attic myself and a random guy in one and another with just a guy. As a female really they should have put us all together or the two guys. Felt a bit awkward myself and the other guy. Better places to stay in Santa Teresa but beach and restaurants very close.

    AVOID! Misleading pictures! They are altered. The pool is actually in the parking lot, there is no communal space for travelers, we paid about 180USD for a private since it was the only option. No kitchen, no breakfast, no value for money. I was also baffled to see that some staff came in our room without notice to reduce the A/C while we we're gone? Also the mattress were crap, we both woke up with a sore back. We spent our 2nd night elsewhere. Best decision ever, the other Hostel was unreal!
