    Extremely expensive. The tent is super tiny and cost around $150 per night. The picture is fake.

    It’s a hostel

    This is a hostel, not a hotel so make sure your aware of that before booking. In our experience people were very loud and constantly slamming doors in the hallway. The towels have orange/brown stains supposedly because other guest take them to the springs. If this is the case then it’s not the hotels fault. The staff is very nice except for the guys at the front desk at night, not friendly, not welcoming and not helpful (don’t have their names) The rooms are ok and kind of small. The common area feels dirty and it’s always crowded, so if you are there to meet people it’s a good thing. The location is great.

    Great location and views. The single room in this Selina was ok by hostel standards but not as nice as the one in La Fortuna.
