We stayed in a private room for 7 nights and really loved it! The Gecko's is homely and friendly, has a lovely atmosphere and everything you need. Kitchen, AirCon, Fans, TV, Pool and Laundry and very clean facilities! The shopping Centre is just next door and you can easily walk into the city for a beer at night.
We definitely recommend to stay here if you're not after a party hostel but just want a lovely time and good night sleeps!
