People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before travelling for more information.

    Great hotel - recommend

    Stayed three nights at the Selina after Carnival. The hotel and staff were excellent. The hotel is situated in a central location. Great value for the price. Would recommend.

    Gem in Lapa

    Gorgeous old building in the middle of Lapa, tastefully renovated and with a very chic decor. lots of social activities going on in and outside the hostel. Everything was perfect except our room was very noisy as it's a busy area and there's barely insulation from the outside noises. I loved it nevertheless.

    It was a hostel with hotel standards but still had a great hostel vibe. The staff were super friendly and helpful and all the facilities were great additions

    It was great, I stayed in the Suite+ and loved it. I visited the rest of the hostel and very clean. The staff was soooo nice and the volunteers as well.

    Excellent stay!

    Great stay. I would recommend. The staff was really nice and helpful. The new guy (can't remember his name but he recently came back from working in the U.S.) was really helpful and had excellent customer service. The area was convenient. The hotel was clean and well kept. The only cons were - No iron - No first-aid kit - The common kitchen area wasn't clean. Even though it is up to guests to use they should have standard cleaning since everyone's individual cleaning style is not thorough. Also, a tip is to keep the key card in the slot to use the air conditioning and taking it out will cause it to go out.

    Good stay. Great personnel. There's always a security person at the door. The night guard was the nicest, super polite and helpful. The rooms are spacious. I paid for the mixed room, and staff was kind enough to put me in a girls-only room, as the hostel was not full. There's a nice, open rooftop with a bar. There's also a bar at the reception. They have lively music on both of them somedays. Big common kitchen, with a lot of equipment (but no glasses, be aware). There's also a cinema and a library. I would stay there again.

    Great stay!

    Selina Hotel is in a great location! Rooms are updated and look chic and new. The bed was comfortable, wifi fast, air con strong. The room was big enough, it was reasonably quiet for a good night sleep (and the black out curtains were awesome). The hotel has a nice kitchen area downstairs and a ton of space to get work done. There is also a restaurant/bar downstairs. The highlight (other than location and comfort) was that there is a super fun rooftop bar with parties going on you get free access to when staying at the hotel. Would recommend! No pool or TV in rooms, FYI.
