This hostel has a very good location in front of the beach, the staff is very nice, they help you with whatever you need. The breakfast on the beach is just amazing!! The rooms are great, and the hostel is very pretty!

I enjoyed my stay here. I was first in the back left 12 dorm room which isn't the best but I moved to the other side which is a lot better. Cleaner, and the air flows a lot better. If only some girls could be cleaner in the bathrooms then they would have been fine, except hair was everywhere. The... More

You get what you pay for as always. We were approached by a fellow backpacker working for his board. He gave us a discount for Geko at the bud terminal - I think our bags gave us away! It was 15 minutes through the cobblestone town to the beach. The hostel couldn't be closer to the beach which was great... More

We spent 1 night at Geko Hostel and enjoyed our stay. We had a double room upstairs, the room was spacious and had a nice bathroom, although the TV didn't work. The view to the beach is great from the room, but at night it can be loud with people on the beach partying. We found the staff really nice... More

I have positive experience with Geko hostel. I picked up this hostel as it is next to the beach even though it is about 20 minutes walking from the bus station. I really liked having quite generous breakfast on the beach where you can have also a huge dinner for 19 Rs, book at the reception. As far as the... More

Even though we were only in Paraty for 2 nights, this hostel still ticked all the right boxes. Staying for such a short time meant we were not around during the day however in the mornings and evenngs we felt comfortable with the owners and the people around us. The hostel is very clean and Paty was very welcoming and... More

I was travelling alone and I chose Geko for the location. The beach is right across the road from the hostel.The dorm was okay, but for the price I can't complain. The breakfast was really good at the beach bar / restaurant. Its a short walk from the bus station and the hostel is easy to find. I think they... More
