    Apparently, they were shutting off the water in the evenings but nobody told us this when we arrived so we couldn't shower or relieve ourselves before bed. Half of the menu in the restaurant was unavailable. The veggie sandwich i received was not even close to what was advertised on the menu. It was also difficult to hunt down staff throughout the day.

    Selina Monteverde was amazing! Except everything stays damp if you get it wet, but that’s just because of the moisture level in the rainforest!

    Great 1st Experience

    Selina Monteverde staff were super helpful along my solo-journey .. like, I wouldn't have made it without them _/|\_ Really grateful for their presence! The establishment is beautifully decorated, "boutique & minimalist" - the restaurant food is top notch delish, hot tub is a bonus. My first hostel experience and I'm a fan :-) Thanks Selina

    We loved staying at Selina! The environment was friendly, welcoming and fun. The restaurant had a great menu (with vegetarian options) and the staff was lovelly. This Selina in particular has a lot of green areas and it made it a unique experience. Would definitely recommend it and would definitely stay again!

    Selina in the clouds

    Natural and trendy aesthetic with great amenities and a convenient location close to the Monteverde Preserve. We loved that they had yoga classes, jacuzzi hot tubs, a kitchen to cook in, and also a full restaurant and bar. The rooms are clean, comfortable and decorated well. Same with all the common spaces. There’s even a billiards table and fireplace in the main rec room. The surrounding area is very natural and it’s great to hear the wind in the trees, but the room can get a little damp since it’s hard to create a right seal of the glass window blinds.
