2/10 Poor

Never stay at the Selina
Our stay was terrible! Me and my husband were very disappointed with the room. 1. Room was dirty there was sand on the floor and in bed. 2. Our door was broken so mosquitoes got in our room and we had the worst nights. We asked the staff to switch our rooms and they didn’t - they said there were no rooms available. No one came fix the door either.

6/10 Good

Good enough but the shared room are not too clean and bathrooms were disgusting. Staff is petty cool and the location is great. If possible get a personal room.

8/10 Very good

Not a fan of the water going off occasionally. Nor the early morning band practice. Otherwise everything was perfect. Watch the stairs it's a long hike up especially with luggage. The staff was extremely helpful when I left my phone on a tour van. I got it back the next morning.

2/10 Poor

If I could give this place a 0 I would. Worst hostel/hotel I’ve ever stayed at. I counted a 110 steps to get to the top (5/6th floor) if that’s where you’re room is (tents up there as well) pretty active person here but sucks overall- kitchen/cinema on “2nd floor”. Fridges are disgusting (smells like death in there tbh) with no reliable way to clean out old food. Pretty deceiving environment during the day- everyone appears to be working and calm but at night it’s pure chaos. Loud music playing at all hours, people yelling/speaking loudly, people smashing glass bottles and to top it off rosters crowing the whole night. Mattresses are hard, no blankets on a thin sheet for cover is provided. Too hot not to turn on the AC so you can imagine how it may feel not having a blanket. Palm roofs with openings so mosquitoes can fly in an out. Awful. Anyways, DON’T STAY HERE, save yourself from this horror. DON’T DO IT 😭
