    8.4.Very good.
    • 8.0.Very good

      Pros: Selina is a very fun place for young adults (Millennials) to lodge because it is a hostel. They have a great restaurant on site. They are also few minutes driving distance (or walking distance) from town where there are other shopping and dinning opportunities. Cons: If you are older, you would not appreciate the late night noises outside during the night such as late night Karaoke or late night hot tub drunken singing or parties. Another thing is that while you can book your attractions from the lobby, none of the staff have any idea about the attractions. For instance, we booked an event that they told us it was going to be a 3-hour activity, it ended up being an all-day. Not great for planning if you have other plans that day. Come to find out, they use volunteer front desk people who don't know much.

      It’s a good place to stay, breakfast was good, just didn’t like they don’t put some small towels, and no tv in the room.

      We loved staying at Selina! The environment was friendly, welcoming and fun. The restaurant had a great menu (with vegetarian options) and the staff was lovelly. This Selina in particular has a lot of green areas and it made it a unique experience. Would definitely recommend it and would definitely stay again!

      Selina in the clouds

      Natural and trendy aesthetic with great amenities and a convenient location close to the Monteverde Preserve. We loved that they had yoga classes, jacuzzi hot tubs, a kitchen to cook in, and also a full restaurant and bar. The rooms are clean, comfortable and decorated well. Same with all the common spaces. There’s even a billiards table and fireplace in the main rec room. The surrounding area is very natural and it’s great to hear the wind in the trees, but the room can get a little damp since it’s hard to create a right seal of the glass window blinds.

      A pleasant stay

      The Selina Monteverde is a comfortable place to stay with fun features like hot tubs, a pool table and an open fire. The rooms were clean and staff were friendly. It’s quite a way out of town though so the location wasn’t super convenient for me.
