Fellow guests and volunteers at this hostel were a nice crowd. Unfortunately, the staff were far less pleasant and actually rude. If you don't mind being watched 24/7 by cameras and security personnel (all over the place), then you might still like this place but for me it was too much. Food portions were small, i usually had to get myself two meals to feel a bit satisfied. The internet in the co-work area was slow and unstable. Won't come back.

I go to Selina's for the yoga and meditation classes with the Canadian teacher called Mara. She's a really beautiful, down to earth soul who lives her life and teaching in integrity. I find this so important because many people in this field have a big spiritual ego about them which goes again the path. I've worked with many teachers over the years but I leave Mara's classes with a profound sense of peace and connection. Cannot recommend highly enough ❤️

Great place if you want to be in the heart of Playa and also want to connect with other fellow travellers. The hostel is well located close to the beach and directly at the famous 5th avenue with all it's restaurants, bars, shops and tour operators. The hostel itself offers nice rooms, a pool, a bar/restaurant and daily events like karaoke nights, game nights, etc. They also have a dive shop (we really liked), a tour operator and a barber shop in their area. The staff was friendly and helpful although we had some problems extending our stay for instance because we got told different things by them all the time. Still a very good stay for us.

I spent 6 nights in Selina Playa del Carmen and had a great time! The location is absolutely incredible and the staff was very kind. Luis in particular was always a smiling face when I came in and by the end of my stay I’d consider him a friend! He gave me the best advice on places to eat, ways to get around, and must-sees in the area! I joined him and a friend one day to the Kantun-Chi Cenote EcoPark and it was definitely the highlight of my time there! I couldn’t be happier that I chose to visit this Selina location and crossed paths with him!

I'd been wanting to check out a Selina since I first heard about them. We booked a two-night stay for a private room at the last minute. When we arrived, it all went to Hell. Even though Booking and Selina took my money, they had no room to offer me, and it wasn't their fault because I booked the non-refundable option. Both companies kept blaming the other and saying they couldn't do anything to help us. They did not recognize their mistake/outright lie when they sold me a room they did not even have. They did not help me find other accommodations. They did not want to give me my money back. They didn't care that it was 9 PM and we had to find somewhere else last minute and drag our luggage there. It was so stressful and completely avoidable.
