it was a bit loud and the public showers are a bit small
as we have booked a dorm but found out the shower was leeking we had a really long discussion with the employees that we didn't find it responsible to stay in the dorm. After 1 hour of discussion they put is in a tippi (LOVED IT). Second day we had to move back to the dorm when the shower was fixed but it wasn't so we got another (clean) tippi. After the long discussion it was so worth packing the bags twice and it felt like a privilege to stay 2 nights in a tipipi.
The design is quite cute.
A very basic hostel, definitely too expensive for what it offers. The shower was terrible and not very good vibes generally. Wouldn’t go back.
The external environment at Selina - the teepee's with fire pit, bar area with pool table and giant jenga, pool area, and kitchen/seating area - make Selina a really fun and social hostel. I had a lot of fun meeting other travellers in this external environment. The bed in the dorm room was quite comfy and well set-up with a cabinet at the foot of the bed to store one's stuff, a light and plug-in near the pillow, and a curtain for privacy.
The 10-bed dorm is quite small, no extra space for backpacks at the foot of a bed etc. The bathroom in the dorm room didn't feel that clean but it was functional. There was no external airflow for the small room, so it was kinda smelly and stuffy feeling. The staff were professional, but not overly friendly; instead of a 'we're excited to meet travellers' attitude, the exuded more of a 'we're tired of travellers' attitude. Also, I was surprised at how poor the staff knowledge was about bus schedules or things to do in the La Fortuna area; the staff kept trying to sell/educate about their tours, but appeared to have no knowledge about anything outside of those tours. You definitely do not need to pay the exorbitant tour prices to enjoy La Fortuna, you can take an uber to get around quite cheaply; i.e. the hot river and El Salto river area are both free and incredible places to enjoy! Hiking around the volcano is super straight forward, just take an uber to the entrance, definitely don't need to pay 5x as much for a 'tour'.
Really nice location and atmosphere!! Nearby the city center, kind staff that’s always willing to help you. Also great spot to meet new people but if you don’t want there is plenty of space for more privacy.
For this price, I would expect locker rooms big enough to store a backpack so that to avoid stepping on everybody’s belongings in a dormitory.
