Leo the manager is a legend! Friendly staff, great location - only downside is that the wifi isn't up to much! Really enjoyed myself here
The main difference between a Hostel and Hotel is not just price, a hostel offers atmosphere and personality and a hotel offers privacy. When you are traveling you don't always want privacy you mostly want to connect with people and have a good time. Let me tell you, Geko delivers on atmosphere in spades. The hostel is on the beach and you will have your breakfast actually on the beach. The manager Leo not only managers he is a excellent musician that plays in the bar across the road.
Great breakfast and lovely staff. Dorms are a bit small and not enough space to store luggage when every bed is full. But decent overall.
The staff were very helpful and the bathrooms are spacious
Great location, awesome breakfast on the beach. Not enough bathrooms for the 12 beds room.
perfect location, friendly staff / almost everybody exept one queen of the bongo from main administration/ beautiful breakfast on the beach, private double room very good, private dorm also OK internet-forget, not working but u have computer on the reception to quick use Generally OK, Paraty beautiful Thank You Geko;)
The staff does not speak very good english, there were no locker to lock my stuff in, and the wifi was terrible. If you say that you have wifi I expect it to work. The breakfast was great, although, it was on the beach were there are a lot of wild dogs. The staff did not try to shase them away, and it is not very nice to eat while three dogs are scratching their balls next to you. I also went on a tour to see the waterfalls, and nobody told me to bring my swimming suit.
Great hostel just by the beach, and only a few minutes walk away from the historic downtown. Perfect place to chill and relax while having beers by the beach.
Staff were helpful, good breakfast and great location. The mixed dorms were not that good though. No plug points at the bed or bins in the room. Kind of dark depressing. The wifi wasn't good and wasn't working on some devices for example iPhone. Bicycles so expensive to rent R$ 50 for the day and they didn't negotiate even though we asked to rent them at 5pm. Having said that we would probably go back for the location and the breakfast.
Great atmosphere, with a great staff always helpful and very good facilites with everything you need. The caipirinha on the arrival and all the things you can book directly on the hostel was a big plus.
Good hostel in a great location next to the beach. Nice to eat your breakfast (which is also great) on the beach! Good rooms with clean bathrooms. Staff were friendly and very helpful when I lost the key to my locker!:/ Would stay here again for sure!
I liked very much the location of the hostel. The beach bar and the night meals were great. It´s a good option if you like the beach and stay there most of the day.
