Property Description

Selina’s beachfront property in Bocas del Toro is located in Isla Colon, just 500 meters from the airport. Here you can dive right into the Caribbean from our huge water deck, then head to our dope co-working space to connect and get stuff done. Day and night, we offer our community something to do: learn how to salsa or listen to live music at the Playground, take a yoga class on our private deck, or enjoy a drink or local delicacy at the restaurant. Selina seeks to incorporate our guests into its multicultural tribe.

Our dorms, including all-female dorms, are great for making new friends, and stretching your dollar. We have small dorms with private balconies too, perfect for families or large groups. If you want privacy, check out private rooms, or enjoy the luxury of a nice hotel with one of our deluxe suites. All rooms feature A/C and high-quality mattresses, and all dorms include personal lockers and en-suite bathrooms.

In Bocas, boredom is not an option. During the day you can go island hoping, surfing, and scuba diving, or just relax under the sun. Take a bike tour with us around town or rent one of our paddleboards and head to the beach. For a more exotic experience, don’t miss our brand-new Red Frog location in Isla Bastimento. At night, Bocas Town offers everything from a reggae bars to pulsating discos . You might come back to us after the sun is up.

This is a party hostel. There will be loud music all night long. The hostel is also right next to the Filthy Friday bar, which will also play music all night. There are no curtains on the bed which is a minus. The sink is in the middle of the room, between the beds, which can be annoying and loud. The internet doesn’t work in the dorms. I had booked several nights and they messed up and put me in a room which was under maintenance so the AC didn’t work. In the new room I moved to there was big brown spots all over my sheets, trash in my bed and the AC was constantly dripping. They should also improve their cleanliness. There was blood on our toilet wall and despite repeatedly telling them this nothing was cleaned This hostel is bad, and you’re paying so much for s*** standard.

Location is nice, the tours you can book are nice, staff was nice. The 6 bed dorms upstairs are also very comfortable. Cinema Room is a great idea. But the wifi in this hostel is extremely bad, so you could watch movies only at super low quality and with a lot of buffering. Biggest problem for us was the kitchen. This is an outdoor kitchen, so the wind blows of the gas fire all the time. There are 12 hotplates but only 4 of them worked. So when the kitchen got crowded during dinner time, you had to wa

Good stay however I was forced to sleep in the cinema room when the staff failed to inform me that I had to move rooms. I came back in the night and found someone else in my bed when I had checked in the day before and due to stay 2 nights. All my stuff was moved onto the floor and the staff the following day did not apologise. Shocking service.
