We liked this place ap much we came back. Why? The staff. They were welcoming and never stopped working even after the job had finished. Highlights were Leo, Veronica and Natalio who made us laugh, dance and sing. The adhoc and random singing and guitar sessions were the best and unforgetable. Thank you to these guys and y the great... More

This hostel is one of the best hostels we have stayed in South America. The atmosphere is amazing and the hostel is clean, that's all that really matters. The main difference between hotels and hostels is that hotels do not have any atmosphere or personality, Geko is managed by Leo a Brazilian guy that speaks perfect English is really a... More

From a general point of view this is a great hostel to stay at. Some things could get better as the wifi company they hired and also the the lockers that could be bigger.. But it wins on location.. 5 minute walking from the centre and in front of a beach, you have breakfast at the beach. Lots of activities... More

Nice hostel, which welcomes you with a free caipirinha at the beach! Good breakfast, also by the beach! Had a little bit of trouble in my room, which first didnt seem to have air conditioning (problem solved by the girls in the other room, the staff didnt care much) and with a very noisy and unpolite family that was in...

The hostel is in a great location just opposite the beach but breakfast is served in the bar on the beach. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm, the room was pretty small but ok. Friendly staff. Wifi was a bit dodgy at time but worked after awhile. The free arrival drink is great!
