Great hostel!
The Manuel Antonio Selina is a great hostel! The bar is good, the common areas and kitchen are good and the rooms are comfortable too. Having three really nice pools is a great bonus too.

Selina was beautiful, set in a fab position, I’d recommend if you are staying here a while as you can make the most of the facilities (pool, bar, yoga etc) however if you just need a room I wouldn’t recommend- very basic and expensive compared to other places. Breakfast is additional cost as is yoga.

Private room did not meet expectations.
The reviews for the hostel and pictures for the private room were misleading. I was disappointed by the condition of the room. The bathroom was especially out of date and we didn’t not feel comfy in the room. The reviews for the hostel are good but I think it is because most people stay in dorm rooms that are renovated more frequently.
