The staff has been lovely here they are always helpful on planning expeditions and next destination travels. Melania is especially amazing! There is a lot to do at this Hostel from their expedition planning to their plentiful yoga classes and a fun bar! I came here solo and the staff creat a great and welcoming atmosphere to get you to meet other guests and plan other fun adventures! Rooms are well cleaned and property is well maintained. Covid protocols are well adhered to, but not overtly strict P.s. take Melania's advice and do the class 3/4 white water rafting while in La Fortuna Cheers Selina!

I've been to 5 Selinas so far, and the one in La Fortuna is one of my favorites. The hostel is really pretty, it has a tiny river and it's full of iguanas and hummingbirds. The staff is super friendly, especially Angel, who was really professional and was always willing to help (with a smile on his face!).

The best Selina I’ve ever been to and my favorite spot in Costa Rica🐒 Guys working there make you feel like home every time. If you’re there, look for Isaac at the bar. He’s the best guide, best service & best company!
