Great staff just what you need nothing more. Clean
small rooms but everything you need to go to the beach surf and come home to crash. Shower were clean and just what you expect out of a hostel. Staff was were this place shined. Great for solo travels if you need to practice your Spanish and get some good vibes going while tele working and surfing. Pura Vida

Good vibe, but checkin not great
I asked for early checkin, for a group of six-2 months before. Did not get it upon arrival, and we ended up waiting 3 hours for our rooms,

The outdoor area is awesome. The pool and outdoor bar was really thought out. The beach is located right on the property. The rooms are okay. They look cheap and they have no hot water. Extremely cold. Literally had to bend my body so it wasn’t in the water. Bed was old.

A must when you travel to Costa Rica!
Well...SELINA hotels have just become our favorites around the globe! Each one of them offers eclectic rooms and very originals! The guests create a great vibe having drinks together and playing board games, volleyball and many other activities! It is also clean, spacious bedrooms and perfect wifi and aircon! The breakfast are perfect and big and their own brewed beer cannot be missed!
