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

Friendly staff, nice beach bar opposite playing good tunes. Rooms basic but clean. Good shower in quadruple room at front. However, when extending our stay at previously agreed rates in morning were told that rooms had doubled in price so were forced to move as outside of our budget. Also paid more as booked through hotels.com so would recommend booking... More

I hate to write this kind of review and make these accusations but all emails to the hostel requesting the Managers / owners contact details have gone unanswered. In fact every email sent to Geko, even before my drama, simply went unanswered. So........I believe I was a victim of theft and that the theft was carried out by a member... More

The location is amazing and the breakfast was the most varied of all he hostels I stayed in during my trip.
