The largest network of hip spaces across the globe, most being hostels with shared or private rooms for shorter stays. Some offer dedicated coworking (extra cost) and other facilities such as pool and restaurant.

Pros: can meet lots of cool people staying there, good location if you want to party.
Cons: no AC so it’s extremely hot in rooms (February). Club downstairs which is super loud so don’t expect to sleep before 3am Thursday - Sunday. The room we booked also didn’t have a window even though it had windows in pictures online.
Definitely better options for the price
The rooms were clean though we had some issues (missing blanket, the door was not able to be locked and the air conditioner didn’t work). AC and the door were fixed after we told them. The laundry room only works with cash even though it says that you can pay with the speed queen app.
The service in the cafe was the first afternoon great the second day at the breakfast very unfriendly and uncooperative.
Best thing for sure the welcome drinks and the barber shop 🥲
STAY AWAY, Not a good place/experience. Had a standard single room, put me in a room that was like a dungeon with ac/big tv bad lighting and a poor bed. Had requested and as advertised wanted a room with a window. They moved me to a room that was then dull, super loud and then had no ac/ tv... Was extremely hot. When switching rooms was not advised some rooms have ac, some don't. Paid way too much a night you could definitely do better else where. Also as advertised was suppose to be a bar/ restaurant but it was under renos so not available. Wouldn't even give me a proper invoice, and they changed the pricing when I booked online to when I arrived! Screen shot your bookings!
Overall, would not stay at Selina again, not good rooms for the price, locations were decent, but super loud place with no amenities on site, pictures super misleading !
Ps- the bots or AI giving them 5/5s omg
Disappointing. Wouldn't go back.
We love the Selina brand and have been to a few already and this one has been our least favorite and we wouldn't recommend it.
Service was not consistent.
The first room we got was dirty, couches had stains all over and it smelled very bad. Then we were moved to a nicer cleaner room which made it better. However, some days the cleaning staff did not leave us clean towels. So we had to go all the way down to the reception to get them.
The cafe downstairs was convenient but the quality of food was bad (stale bagel, bad coffee) and the prices were not cheap. The staff was also not friendly so even though we had free breakfast every day (at the cafe) we stopped going and preferred to pay more elsewhere.
The location was okay, it's on a main road so not very inviting to walk but it's very close to all the bars and restaurants (less than 5 mins walk). With that said, after walking around the neighborhood there are better locations to stay in that are more welcoming. The cafe staff should not work in the service industry as none of them was welcoming or seemed interested to provide good service.
Cowork space was our favorite part of the hotel snd why we keep choosing Selina. It was big, with large tables and private rooms to take calls. Very easy to work from.
Finally, what this Selina is missing is a more social area where you can meet others and interact. We did not meet anyone over the week and it was very disappointing.
The experience could have been much better if the service and cleaning were improved.
We mostly enjoyed our stay at Selina Medellin. We particularly liked the size of the room and the daily room service.Weekends are very loud and the windows are not sound proof, so be prepared for that... There’s room for improvement in the quality of breakfast at the HOWM cafe and the attitude of the employees at HOWM. The check in staff was great, attentive and friendly. Thank you!
