10/10 Exceptional

I really loved staying here. My room was well designed, and had a nice place to work. The wifi worked great. I loved the cafeteria food and bakery. The area was quiet but right off the main strip. I would say it's a quick walk to the most touristy area, but with the hills nothing is a quick walk. Also it's right next to a badass feminist cafe!

10/10 Exceptional

We stayed at Selina in the middle of the week, so didn't have any issues with the noisy nightclub. Selina's own cafe is definitely overpriced and not worth it, so I'd recommend eating somewhere else. Everything else was great - the location is perfect and our room was very comfy. Perfect value as well

4/10 Fair

Stayed for two nights and both nights the club had the music so loud our room was vibrating. Staff was complained to multiple times and they did if you don’t like sleeping Selina La Paz is the place for you. Would not recommend

Friendly Staff but some Issues with my room
Selina is usually excellent, unfortunately this time I faced some issues: the heater wasn’t working properly, I wasn’t offered another room neither it was fixed. Portable heaters were not available this time. Internet wasn’t working on my room! I’m a digital nomad, and this is very important. Other than that it was confortable and the staff was friendly.

6/10 Good

Selina La Paz could have been a decent budget stay, but the constant raves and music in the hotel basement every night made it impossible to sleep, which is generally the most important factor when considering a hotel.
