We checked into sleepy gecko with the intention of staying a few nights but unfortunately we decided to leave after one. There are two dorm rooms....one better than the other as it has showers and toilets just outside and isn't close to the road or crying children so its quieter. Instead they put everyone in the other dorm which means you have to walk through the bar area to have a shower or go to the toilet, there is no aircon so the doors need left open which meant a very early rise due to the sunlight, loud noise of boats, scooters and the children and workers outside. The pool looked lovely but i didnt want to hang out with the staffs children. maybe the place is better suited for familys but not for backpackers.For 7$ a night it wasn't competive with the rest of the dorms in town.The beds were a good size but the room is dark and smells of dust.The two other dorms in town are 6$ and 9$ both with aircon and ensuite bathrooms, the9$ one includes an all you can eat breakfast buffet. The place is a nice idea and we liked the location but it was almost as if they haven't thought it through properly. A large bottle of water is 25,000 dong....the other hostels charge 15,000....shame as the staff were lovely.
