Playa del Carmen
Playa del Carmen might be more chill than Cancun, but don’t let that dissuade you. Come to Playa to explore excellent coral reefs, see stunning sea life, and bliss out on the beach. This former fishing town has quickly evolved into one of Mexico’s most popular destinations, filled with music, delicious restaurants, shopping centers, biking adventures, hikes around Mayan ruins, and more.
Selina Playa del Carmen is located on the rambling Quinta Avenida, the perfect spot to stroll the streets, relax on the paradisiac beach or mingle with locals and fellow travelers. Stay in our dormitories, standard, deluxe, or private rooms.
4 Bed Dorm
The classic Selina option! Bunk up with your new friends without sacrificing comfort – or privacy. Selina’s dorms are not like your typical hostel. We set a high standard with a seating area, your own light, a personal shelf and locker for each bunk bed to keep your things safe and secure. This is the best way to immerse yourself in the Selina community and meet your fellow travelers -- all while getting the most value for your budget. Bathrooms are shared.
If you want a nice rest and some peace and quiet while keeping an eye on your wallet, our standard rooms are the perfect option. Rooms have a queen sized bed with private bathroom. You’ll get the full Selina treatment while having your own place to retire to in the evenings.
For those who still need their comforts while exploring. Our deluxe rooms are made for comfort and are designed with a keen eye for detail. These are large rooms with a private bathroom, king sized bed and depending on the location a private balcony to enjoy the scenic views.
Selina’s most luxurious offer, our unique rooms are designed for those looking to indulge while traveling. Sound insulation and A/C give you complete privacy and ensure you get your beauty sleep. Depending on the location, you’ll be waking up to ocean views and soothing waves, the rainforest canopy surrounded by monkeys and sloths, or expansive views of the city skyline. All unique rooms have a private bathroom as well as a balcony, garden or pool depending on the location.
Visit one of the trendiest spots in Mexico. Still a relatively undiscovered coastal gem, Playa del Carmen is a beach town like nothing you’ve ever experienced.
