    Our stay at Selina was amazing! We liked it so much we ended up extending our stay several nights. We had a private room that was very cute and clean. Amenity spaces were great. Luis at the front desk was always available to help and very accommodating. Also a good place to stay if you want to meet other travelers.

    Modern, funky, fun place to stay. Comfortable bed and pillows. We stayed in the deluxe room, a little more spacious and private. They seem to have a lot of options for travelers of all budgets, hostel type rooms and camping. If I was a young backpacker on a budget the shared bathrooms and kitchen areas looked really nice. Many nice lounge areas and pool. Pretty quiet too. Close to the center of town, so very walkable to eateries and shopping.

    Extremely expensive. The tent is super tiny and cost around $150 per night. The picture is fake.

    It’s a hostel

    This is a hostel, not a hotel so make sure your aware of that before booking. In our experience people were very loud and constantly slamming doors in the hallway. The towels have orange/brown stains supposedly because other guest take them to the springs. If this is the case then it’s not the hotels fault. The staff is very nice except for the guys at the front desk at night, not friendly, not welcoming and not helpful (don’t have their names) The rooms are ok and kind of small. The common area feels dirty and it’s always crowded, so if you are there to meet people it’s a good thing. The location is great.

    Great location and views. The single room in this Selina was ok by hostel standards but not as nice as the one in La Fortuna.

    Weekend stay

    We came for a few days while visiting the area. I didn't realize it was going to be so quiet. We thought it might be a bit rowdier but it was good for what we needed. Big focus on working remote and tourism. I would go back for a weekend for sure.

    Beautiful, but...

    I had a private room, it was clean and comfortable. Overall place is clean and beautiful. However, my room was in between a shared bathroom and a dorm, meaning it was always very busy and noisy. Also the swinging chairs in front of my room make the most horrible sound, especially when drunk people just hang out there late at night... Restaurant on site is good but reaaaaaally pricey, especially at night. A simple nachos was 5500 colones...

    This was the first time my boyfriend and I stayed on a hostel and we loved it. We spent two nights in a tepee and it was great. The staff is very friendly and the food is amazing. It is budget friendly and delicious.
