Lovely stay!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Rooms were clean and comfortable, there were lots of amenities and convenience was great. Location was great and we really love the coworker area. So nice to have filtered water and a beautiful apartment option with a kitchen

8/10 Very good

Nice place to stay on the southern part of Santa teresa walking distance from everything however you need to manage your expectations. We had private room with shower and toilet. In the room and outside everything was clean quite and well decorated. Free parking is available. Lovely pool, and good food at the food track. You can take Yoga classed, surfing use co work space etc for extra payment. And the Selina north facility is also available for the guests. However in our room we had 2 huge transparent windows you can’t cover in the shower facing the neighbours we felt no privacy in additional we asked to change towels once a day and we have been told every day that towels are not available. For Expedia VIP members, it was complicated with the hotel, we had to explain 3 times we booked through Expedia and we have some benefits on our reservation, it is written we have free drinks (we were not able to get them at first) some front members wasn’t aware what is Expedia others tried to help and took care of it in the end. Regarding room upgrade it was not offered at all, we were not expected once we were told they don’t know what is Expedia VIP . I will recommend staying Selina but bring extra towels.

Ya había estado en otros Selinas, y este Selina Sur me decepcionó El desayuno que lo pagué al momento de la reserva se debía tomar en Selina Norte lo que implicaba una caminata de 20’ o taxi Si me hubiesen avisado antes de sacar, hubiese elegido no tomarlo He estado en otro hotel en Santa Teresa que por la misma plata (o menos) en habitaciones privada tenía muchos más servicios Agua mineral, toallas sin cargo extra para la piscina, desayuno en el hotel, etc A chequear extra costos antes de contratarlos nuevamente!!!!

Great community & environment with attentive staff
I had an excellent stay here! I came for a few days but I loved my stay so much I ended up extending for two weeks. The staff is incredibly helpful, Hariel and Diego took care of every question and need I had. They help create a good environment of digital nomads with an incredible coworking space and a relaxed and inclusive community. This is especially great when traveling as a solo female traveler. The staff went above and beyond to ensure I had a good stay. Location is excellent, off of the main road with access to a supermarket, many restaurants, and the beach within footsteps. Best sunsets in Costa Rica!

I keep coming back to this hotel.
Another great stay at Selina Santa Teresa South! After coming for two weeks I booked a second stay to return for another two weeks here. Between the great coworking community and attentive staff, it's a perfect option for digital nomads or just visitors looking for a week or weekend break to surf and chill. Hariel, Diego and Minerva were really helpful with extending my booking and are always doing extra actions to accomodate guests (for example, when I wanted to buy fresh tuna from the fisherman in Malpais, Hariel arranged everything and purchased it on my behalf). Catalina also helped me with the proper paperwork I needed from the coworking space to arrange business expenses. Thank you to the Selina staff for another great stay!

Loved our stay, got amazing check in and service from Hariel at the front desk. Really the most helpful, especially after having a bad experience at a previous hotel. Our room was so clean and comfortable, we had everything we needed here. The property could offer more free coffee and water and more experiences.

Crazy how expensive it is for what you get
I paid 180$ for a private room and felt like an insane price for what I got. It didn’t feel that private since window faced people. The tiny shower had a dirty shower curtain. There was no hairdryer (asked for one, but no luck). Bed was very hard, as were pillows. Sheets dirty. Woke up with sunrise since curtains didn’t block light and needed to keep bathroom door open to feel a/c so got bright light from that side too. Also super loud/ no sound proofing so can hear everyone. And no real customer service. I get that it’s a hostel not a hotel, but for 180$ would expect a bit (or a lot) more

6/10 Good

Paid $200 USD for a private hostel room, shared bathroom. Half the front desk staff was great, one girl had incredible attitude, really bad. I wouldn't stay at south selina ever again, but I do like Selina hotels in general.
