El Gecko is a lovely, chilled hostel with a kitchen and lovely clean, bright rooms, just a stones throw from the beach and great value for money.

Monterrico is the perfect place for a couple of relaxing days/weeks/months at the beach... and so is the Gecko Hostal: it has a great and laid back atmosphere and I had a perfect time there at the end of my trip! They have a nice patio, equipped with comfy sofas/benches, a tv and a kitchen to use, where you meet... More
