Overall it was an amazing place if you wish to be close to the beach with a bar, but prepared to pay extra for this not luxury. We paid extra for a private room, the air con spat water which in turn made the bed damp. The linen smelt damp which didn't make for a pleasant sleep. Besides this the facilities were great, the staff were friendly but they required multiple prompts to book our transfer which was a service they offer. In the end it was booked and we loved Paraty!

Wi-fi barely works + Internet on the computer for guests was terrible (couldn't even load to book a flight). When we told the staff they just shrugged and continued to scroll through Facebook on the perfectly working Internet on the staff computer. Aircon in room was broken and it was incredibly hot and uncomfortable to sleep. There was also construction going on within the hostel with a ladder right outside our door. We were not advised in advance and if we had been we wouldn't have stayed here

Good breakfast, beautiful at the beach. We only stayed one night. Staff was helpful with organising a transfer to ilha grande. There is a computer you can use for internet. Lockers are at different location than the dorm. Simple wooden bunkbeds, not super clean.


Right on the beach! Perfect. Aircon seemed to do nothing. Apart from that would highly reccomend


Very well located hostel!


Geko Hostel stands out. The atmosphere is great, locations is perfect, and rooms are super nice. I stayed for a bunch of days and had the chance to try different rooms. All have plenty of space, private bathroom, AC, and big windows. My favorite thing was the amazing buffet breakfast on the beach! Staff is also super helpful and really knowledgeable about the area and things to do. Special thanks to Joel, who went the extra mile to make sure that me and other guests would feel at home and happy


Really nice hostel, we had a double room which was lovely and had a big bathroom too. Lovely breakfast served on the beach every day! Recommend hiring bikes and exploring the local area
