This hostel is almost like a hotel, it's really impressive! In Brazil, so far, it's the most structured hostel I've ever stayed in. The rooms and bathrooms are really clean, all the beds have individuals plugs and storage for luggage. The kitchen is completely equipped and breakfast is delicious! I only stayed for one night, so I couldn't get much of the atmosphere, but the staff is really nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend it! Oh, and it's two blocks away from the Botanical Garden.
The staff is super friendly and helpful, and gave us awesome tips on what to do, but it could have a better structure. There was only one good bathroom inside for five rooms, and two outside, but the water outside would occasionally be cold. It was cleaned every day but since a lot of people used it, by the end of the day it was already really dirty. I also missed a microwave and the beds would make a lot of noise when I moved. The atmosphere was awesome though, and for new years it was cheap!
We had a very nice time staying at Geckos. The owners are super nice and helpful, as the rest of the staff. There were barbecues at night and a great friendly atmosphere. Would definitely go back!
Great hostel with an awesome atmosphere! The guys from the staff are super friendly and helpful, they really make you feel at home. Bonus for the ocean sound in bed. Will definitely go back.

Really well located, in the middle of the red light district. Each room has its own bathroom, that was really clean all the time... The security was a bit poor, the room having only one key and staying opened most of the time, but they had lockers, and I really didnt feel unsafe... Also a good atmosphere and hapefull staff!
The hostal is very well located, very close to the main square. The staff is helpfull and some of them speak a bit of english and spanish, but they could be more organized. The rooms were very nice and clean, but the water in the shower changes from cold to hot to cold again during the shower...
the hostal has a very good atmosphere, with a bar downstairs, pool table and a tv with movies all the time... very nice to meet the other guests... the bathrooms were very clean, as well as the bedrooms... didn't have any problems with noise at night. only the breakfast that could have more stuff... but would definitly stay there again!
