I stayed for two nights at geekco and it felt really like home. As a solo traveler you don't feel lonely at all. The staff is very helpful and treats you more like a friend than a guest. They even dried my wet clothes i brought from another place and lend me a hair dryer for free. The living room... More

I have nothing against the hostel - it was clean, the ambient was good and the staff very nice. We even got a "welcome beer". BUT if I knew now, I would have chosen something in the Baleal area (not in Peniche itself), around 5 km. to the north, where the real fun is: beaches, restaurants, bars, surf schools... And...

Really good facilities, very clean/modern rooms but it was/is the people make this hostel. Amazing hospitality and they went beyond measure and beyond expectation to ensure we were looked after but also included. Good brekkys and BBQ's. Very suitable for all... More

Never have I walked into a hostel/hotel and been as blown away by the genuine friendliness and phenomenal service of the owner. In fact, my friend and I only walked into Geekco looking for advice on good places to eat/visit in the area. We were immediately greeted with a warm smile and Telmo welcomed us to the bar out the...

Perfect place if you are looking to surf or just take off and explore. 5 minute drive from the beach, and plenty of street parking. Rooms were clean and simple, with comfortable beds and a nice area for BBQ. Special thanks to Tumo and Ana, great hosts and welcoming to all guests

My stay was out of season so the hostel was quite. The owners have gone to great lengths to make it a very comfortable, in season would be a very sociable place to stay. The beach and headland are beautiful. A coffee at the beach cafe is a must!

This summer I spent the most wonderful weekend at Geekco Hostel! The location and the facilities are excellent, as well as the breakfast! However, nothing beats the host, that is nice, helpful and available! Definitely, it is a place to come back in the future!
