Welcome to our must-read guide to discover the absolute best Selina hostels in the world! We absolutely love Selina and we wanted to dedicate this guide to some of our favourite Selina accommodations around the world. Sure, it was difficult to narrow it down to 17, so just know that these are not exclusively the best.
Selina is a top-notch hostel chain offering incredible modern design, affordable accommodation and a wonderful community vibe that brings work and play together.
Make the most of the dedicated Co-Working spaces here, and then balance out your time by enjoying the gorgeous courtyard, onsite bar and yoga classes. Sounds pretty good, we know.
The 4 and 10-bed mixed dorms are definitely the classic option, but you can also splash out on a private room. They are split between ‘standard’ and ‘deluxe’ so there’s a room to suit all budgets here.
The location of Selina Jaco is just privileged and a definite highlight of staying here.
As well as having access to the beach by literally rolling out of bed, you even get use of an outdoor swimming pool surrounded by palm trees! This is why this hostel is also part of the Coolest Surf Hostels in Costa Rica guide we created.
And we have to mention the super cool rooms… how about sleeping in a cylinder? They are super cosy for one or two people and a definite unique quality of this hostel.
Selina Nosara hostel is definitely one for the health-conscious travellers and female solo travellers.
For instance, staying here means enjoying…
Healthy food at the onsite restaurant
Daily yoga classes
Selina Surf Club
Workshops, tours & activities
No doubt you’ll spend most of your time up on the rooftop either relaxing under a palm tree with your favourite drink, or by splashing about with new friends in the pool. This hostel is part of our guide on the Coolest Surf Hostels in Costa Rica as well so definitely check it out if you love surfing.
