    This place is very special. A very upscale hostel as it had 3 pools! All the staff were super kind and friendly. This felt more like a resort than a hostel which i was very please with how far my money went by staying here. It's in the middle of the jungle and we saw sloths, toucans, and monkeys by our room. Most restaurants are walking distance. My only suggestion is to give better advertising for the work out classes! I loved this place so much and had an amazing time. The people, the locations, the vibes. everything was excellent. I already miss this place and Selena Manuel Antonio has a special place in my heart. The other friends I have who came here agree. Thank you to all the staff you were all wonderful and I will be back :)

    Our Stay at Selina

    I do want to like this place the people and customer service were outstanding and even the price and place but the mattresses are hard as a rock and music was booming all through the night.You must be very fit to walk up and down the pathways every time you need the kitchen. I do love being across from El Avion and fixing our meals in the kitchen was really great too.Having 3 pools to choose from was a luxury! Mohamed was so friendly showing us around and check-in was fast friendly and easy.Love that the bus stops in front of Selina!

    The hotel is old and the rooms are worn out and not very clean. There’s loud music playing all day and night so it’s quite hard to rest. Staff is very friendly though!

    Excelente habitación e instalaciones. Hotel situado a unos 2km de la playa, pero en lo alto de la colina, por lo que es recomendable ir bajan a la playa en coche.

    I thought that their activities including yoga and the late night DJ’s were unique, I didn’t enjoy the majority of the front desk staff, they were rude and not welcoming. Also the rooms were very worn out and didn’t appear clean.
