4/5 Good

I like Selina, it was the second time I’ve stayed here. Love the vibes, the pool, the music and the beachfront. Good food, kind staff. I don’t like that the hit tubs are never warm, the lockers in the dorms are busted or in bad shape, bathrooms could use some remodeling, single lamps on the dorms like Selina San Jose would be such a big plus. Other than that it’s my favorite place in Puerto Viejo so far

Overall a good stay. 10 min walk into town can rent a bike at hostel if needed. Good vibes at the bar with food and drinks. (Did stay in private room not in dorm)

Do not book here. Ever.

Do not book a reservation here. They canceled our reservation even though we showed up at 3:00 pm on the day we had a reservation. At first they acted like they were just getting our room ready, then we finally realized that they didn't have a room for us. They had given our room away and shrugged it off like, "it's a busy weekend." I responded with, "I know, that's why we booked a reservation before coming here." All the hotels in town were sold out. We ended up having to drive for hours in the dark and rain through a mountain pass arriving at San Jose around 11:00 pm.

I like the jungle feeling with all the trees in the property.
