    Super nice place and host. Amazing that all accomodations are self-built. We wanted to extend but it was fully booked, so we were offered a tent :) Amazing time and great activities as well

    We arrived later than expected, due to figuring out the rental car and directions from San Jose. The host was very kind and accommodating. We appreciated the locked gate, especially since we had a rental car. The room was a perfect fit for what we were looking for; an affordable place to stay after a long day of flights and a long drive. Everything was clean and easily accessible. Overall a great stay! Thank you!

    We really enjoyed our stay here, the host was very friendly and helpful and our room was clean and comfortable. The location is good it’s not far from the local town and only a 10 minute drive to the ferry port. We enjoyed our boat trip which was also booked through El Gecko. We would definitely come back

    Very quiet and nice place to stay in Paqueras. The room, bathroom and kitchen were perfectly clean. The owners are super helpful and kind, they helped us arrange everything for a bioluminescence tour and for the transportation.

    Nice family-owned guesthouse off the beaten track. More of a guesthouse than an hostel. Everything was working and clean. During the day there is construction noise because they are building out the accommodation.

    Lovely little place. Went in off season so not much going on and it was not like the other places we had been to before. The host was absolutely incredible, super friendly and helped us sort out taxi and buses. Cool gardens. Real family vibe.
