5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

We really enjoyed our stay at Selina's - rooms were spacious and very clean, and staff were super friendly and helpful, especially the security guards. We left early in the morning and the security guard made sure we got into our Uber safely! We will be staying at Selinas hostels from now on :)

  • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Avoid - the premium accommodation. It is ironically situated over the bar and not sound-proofed. There is loud noise and vibration day and night from below, the adjacent communal area, and adjoining room. Othewise, a cool place to hang out and nice, efficient staff.
