Apart from the location the hostel is just and your average hostel.. Nothing to write home about. However, there is a little bar across the road from hostel which is right on the beach.. Which is where you have breakfast.. So if you don't mind average accommodation then I would definitely recommend staying here

Geko provided me with a very average experience. Breakfast on the beach was lovely, but the hostel felt very formal. The staff were very impersonal and we never got to really know them or interact with them. In the 12 bed dorm some of the mattresses were not mattresses. Remember at school when you had gym and you´d climb on...

I stayed one night in that hostel because the hostel I first wanted to go was full. The Geko hostel is quite nice, the location on the beach with a beach bar, the rooms with ac and also the breakfast is very good (compared to other hostels). The staff was always friendly and helpful. However, the lockers are bad, the...

One of the best breakfasts I have had in Brazil and it is served right on the beach. Stayed in a 12 bed dorm which was actually more like 2 separate 6 beds and private bathroom (2 level bunks). Quite a social hostel so easy to find someone wanting to do the same as you. Staff were helpful with organising...

We liked this place ap much we came back. Why? The staff. They were welcoming and never stopped working even after the job had finished. Highlights were Leo, Veronica and Natalio who made us laugh, dance and sing. The adhoc and random singing and guitar sessions were the best and unforgetable. Thank you to these guys and y the great...

This hostel is one of the best hostels we have stayed in South America. The atmosphere is amazing and the hostel is clean, that's all that really matters.

From a general point of view this is a great hostel to stay at. Some things could get better as the wifi company they hired and also the the lockers that could be bigger.. But it wins on location.. 5 minute walking from the centre and in front of a beach, you have breakfast at the beach. Lots of activities...
