This gets 3 from me, rather than 2, because it was cheap and you get what you pay for. The location is great as its in the middle of the historic centre and the better beaches up the road but i didnt really do anything in the geko hostel area itself. Staff were friendly and talkative and helpful. Didnt discover... More

Nice place! The staff are really friendly... i arrived at 6 am and they keep my bags and I could change clothes and go to the beach until the check in time. They have a bar at the beach and they have some parties there at night. By the mornings they offer a simple but good breakfast at beach. I... More

We loved this place and would highly recommend it. The hostel is in a great location for walking to the main part of town. Our room (6bed female dorm) was really nice, quiet and clean. Room and bathrooms were clean. There's a nice hangout area at the front of the hostel and a clean kitchen for doing your own cooking.... More

The owners of the Geko Hostel are nice people and the place is always packed with people from all around the world, most are very cool. They promote some parties and night events which bring some more life to the place as well as good music. The breakfast is simple, non-fancy but well served and tasty. I stayed in a... More

This is my second time staying at Geko Hostel in Paraty as I had such a great time the first time, I had to come back. I was welcomed by Ignacio when I first arrived who was super helpful and welcoming. He helped me plan my stay and booked trips that I wanted to do. He also recommended other activities... More

When staying at Geko, we stayed in a private room with a private bathroom. It was awesome! The beds were comfortable and clean and we were provided with linens. The room and bathroom was cleaned each day. There was also a fridge in the room. The location can't be beat-- right on the beach! Dinner and breakfast were served at... More

Apart from the location the hostel is just and your average hostel.. Nothing to write home about. However, there is a little bar across the road from hostel which is right on the beach.. Which is where you have breakfast.. So if you don't mind average accommodation then I would definitely recommend staying here

Geko provided me with a very average experience. Breakfast on the beach was lovely, but the hostel felt very formal. The staff were very impersonal and we never got to really know them or interact with them. In the 12 bed dorm some of the mattresses were not mattresses. Remember at school when you had gym and you´d climb on... More

I stayed one night in that hostel because the hostel I first wanted to go was full. The Geko hostel is quite nice, the location on the beach with a beach bar, the rooms with ac and also the breakfast is very good (compared to other hostels). The staff was always friendly and helpful. However, the lockers are bad, the... More
