Very cozy and full of spaces for sharing. Good food and friendly service. Would have preferred a quiter room though. Our door was right in front of the shared kitchen and someone decided to start playing piano al 7.50 am!

This hotel was wonderful! It has a hostel-like feel to it, making it feel more welcoming and open. The staff was incredible - they were attentive, patient, and very helpful. The restaurant and bar was also delicious and has long hours, making it very convenient! Would stay here again.

Amazing team of hospitality professionals
I love Selina San Jose and the reason I keep coming back is the team. From Guillermo and Mairon on the front desk through to Mellis behind the bar and Marta and her cleaning team, everyone is super welcoming, super helpful, and a pleasure to deal with.
