10/10 Exceptional

Beautiful place in the middle of the jungle and about five minutes from the beach. Very relaxing, nice vibe, no loud music. Just loud enough to keep a nice atmosphere. Young people working there are also very nice and easy going. Most, if not all of them are at least bilingual. One cool thing is that Selina organizes different group walks such as to a far away beach, star gazing on the beach, or searching in the jungle for wildlife.

2/10 Poor

Never stay at selina
Selina was extremely run down. Very bad service. Extremely dirty. No food available everyday at the restaurant. Wifi was horrible. Rooms we unfinished and had bugs. They dont even finish the rooms with curtains. They just spray paint windows. Horrible place.

My First and Last Visit
You don't want to stay in Selina. Hygiene levels all around the hostel and the quality of the rooms are not on the standard. The staff is friendly and helpful and were willing to help always. One problem, though, is with the style and atmosphere. You don't know who is actually working and who is just hanging around the premises. It is a bit too relaxed and hippie place, more like a volunteer camp than a hostel, which is a business in the real world. As a Global operator, while renovating, it should not be an issue to close the sections entirely and not sell rooms from the middle of the works. According to the renovations, the information was given while making the reservation. The issue was how do you actually conduct the works. I was planning to stay for a week, but half was enough...

Best vibes
Very very nice place and it’s all about warm and good vibes. We didn’t meet people over 35 there but anyone would enjoy their welcoming atmosphere. Our family recommend it!!!

4/10 Fair

Poor value, good location
When we entered the room for the first time we were hit with a strong smell like moth balls and a musty odor. The sliding glass door to the ground level “balcony” would not lock. We notified the desk and after two hours it was fixed temporarily. The “balcony” was small and crowded by overgrown trees. The room was functional but rather unappealing. The cost per night was quite high and overall it was a poor value. It did have a good location about a 10 to 15 minute walk to Red Frog Beach. We paid extra in our room price for breakfast and then had to pay for our coffee and tea...seriously.

We found the place to be nice and cosy very secluded and marvellous if you like nature especially the sound of the various species that sing or squawk really makes it very interesting to get close to nature!
