Geko Hostel Paraty
Ranked #13 of 281 Specialty Lodging in Paraty
Reviewed October 29, 2010

This hostel is the perfect chill out place in a great little village. Staff are very friendly and helpful in orgainising whatever you want to do. We had an ensuite double that was very roomy. The front outside area has couches and hammocks to lazy away in along with a night time bar and music all day. The area is also under cover (handy for rainy day wifi-ing). The best part about this hostel that separates it from most is that every night it has a special meal prepared by the local chef and these meals were fantastic and very reasonably priced (10-15BRL). Location is right opposite the beach and only a short walk to the very interesting historical part of Paraty.
