    Really nice hostel located in a quiet area of the island but close enough to main areas. The staff are super friendly and helpful and the facilities are great. I really loved the sleeping pods that give you privacy and the showers are the best I've seen in a hostel so far. I also really liked their eco-friendly approach. It's a quite small hostel so it's easy to meet other people. Highly recommend staying at Gecko!

    Gecko hostel is the best hostel I have stayed at during my travels. From the moment you arrive Ignacio and the team make you feel at home and part of their family. The hostel is super clean and quiet in the night. The best part is that it is also a vegan hostel and eco friendly in terms of their shampoos and soaps etc! Ignacio also assists with recommendations of what to do on the island! My friends and I loved it there ♥️

    I really enjoyed my stay at Gecko Republic. The staff and other travellers were very friendly and the hostel volunteers made it easy to organize nights/dinners out and meet people. The place was also very clean, I swear the staff were always cleaning but perhaps that was just a coincidence. The pod beds were also a nice touch because you were afforded a little bit more privacy than your typical bunk bed setup. They also have the cutest dog Kiki (I think) to top it all off. Would 100% stay again!

    This place is great! Immediately greeted by the amazing staff that made us feel at home. The atmosphere is chill, and is located far away enough from the parties. This place is located in the middle of the island making it accessible to get to either end quite easily. The facilities were clean and atmospheric, the beds were cubbies where you don’t have to wake up looking at your neighbour. would recommend this place to anyone!

    I loved my stay here! The hostel is so charming. The pod style beds were great for extra privacy and a lounge areas were just perfect. The stay were super friendly and accommodating, and I extended my stay for another 5 nights. The location was perfect in my opinion, but is a little far from the main beach areas, but I preferred that. There are a couple of great restaurants not too far plus the hostel also makes some pretty good vegan food, too. Cannot say enough good things about this place.

    This hostel is absolutely perfect for anyone looking for a good nights sleep and a laid back vibe. The beds are amazing and the facilities are faultless! You may be concerned about the location as it is a bit far from the main town and the party area but the staff really make up for it. John, and particularly Nim, are great hosts. They made sure to organise any day trips we wanted, they were so useful with their recommendations and they are genuinely lovely people. I would 100% recommend!

    Staff were a bit reserved at the beginning but ended up being very helpful and nice at the end. The place looks quite cool, eco friendly and with a sort of vegan oriented style but not really atmosphere unless you just like to lay down in hammocks / puffs. Food and drinks overpriced in my opinion.
