    Loved our stay at Gecko after being recommended by a friend. Really centrally located, awesome atmosphere which makes it easy to make friends with other travellers. The outdoor area is lush and green with big shared tables, we had a super nice xmas dinner and on our last night they had a live band. Noice policy at midnight meant you could stay up and party or head to bed and actually get some sleep. Would 10/10 stay here again, loved our stay. Bathrooms were excellent and staff were on point.

    Our stay at Gecko was the best! Great location, the staff are the best, met so many travelers and the vibe is good. We kept extending our stay because we didn’t want to leave. We’ll definitely be back in the future!

    The staff at Gecko were incredibly friendly, helpful, and made you feel like you're part of the family. It was so nice to be around such lovely people. The location was perfect! A 3-minute walk to the beach. The main shade structure was nice and spacious (though there are always people smoking in the chill out area, if cigarettes bother you, be prepared). I loved seeing kitties and chickens walking around! A good, no frills place to stay.

    Very Good

    I appreciate it is a budget hostel but the 10 bed dorm was a bit grim. If you're on a budget this hostel will completely serve all of your needs but if you have the extra cash it might be worth spending it if you would like some comfort. Location is close to everything you need but I preferred staying at the other end of the strip. The private rooms did look nice though!

    Gecko was conveniently located to the beach and some good food places. The two locals at the reception desk gave really great suggestions for cheap food places. However if you’re in the dorms.. it’s noisy, someones always coming in and out, you have to put ur own sheets on, the beds squeak a lot, not the best sleep. The atmosphere kind of sucks for new and young backpackers coming in as it seems like theres an older crowd that’s been there for awhile kind of doing their own thing.

    This hostel serves its purpose, but it is very basic. The mattresses are very thin and have a plastic coating which made me sweat like crazy. The beds themselves also creaked loudly so when anyone moved in the night, it woke you up. The outside sitting area was nice and relaxing, but other than that, everything was very basic.

    I suspect that they are writing their own reviews. The first guy added 20MYR on to my due balance, saying that it was tourist tax - even though website receipt confirmed all taxes included. British woman next day added on 50MYR - for the same reason. She was huffy when I queried it and said I didn't have to pay it if I didn't want to, but that it was not included. After getting my phone she said OK to the Hostelworld amount . She was rude and unprofessional. Stay next door or opposite.
