Welcome to the first urban Selina, a hotspot for adventurers, working nomads, hippies, and artists alike. The art, cuisine, nightlife, and spirit of this city will be an energizing, and enjoyable slap on the face full of nouveau Latin flavor. Stroll with Saturday shoppers through the San Jose farmers market, join the crowds in Parque La Sabana, dance the night away, or visit one of the many museums in Costa Rica’s cultural capital.
Selina San Jose is located in Barrio Otoya, one of the oldest and most vibrant neighborhoods in the city. Features like Selina Home, The Playground, the tour office, and CoWork space add the perfect finishing touch. Stay in our dormitories, standard, deluxe, or private rooms. Suites and family rooms available.
10 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.
Need a little extra space? Indulge in a Selina suite. These spaces are made for peace and quiet with sound insulation, ensuring you won’t be disturbed (or disturb others…). Suites come with a king-sized bed, private bathroom, A/C, and your own little relaxation area. Depending on the location, you may find yourself with a private balcony with views over the ocean or the rainforest canopy. Designed with a keen eye for detail, the suites are equipped for comfort in style.
Start with a walking tour, stop for coffee, and find your new favorite outfit: in cosmopolitan San Jose, there’s a wealth of activities to choose from.
