    Myself and a friend are travelling SA for 6 months and Geckos was one of our favourites so far! It has a real homely vibe to it and it’s very easy to meet people sitting out in the common areas and the comfy hammocks. The staff are really friendly, especially the Irish owner and the bar man who can tell you anything you need to know about the island. The hostel organises lots of nights out which people from other hostels often join, day trips around the island, surf lessons and bbq’s

    Great hostel, great staff. They don't do any organized activities but I met wonderful people at the hostel with whom we went out on our own. This hostel would be the best if they did organized activities as some others do. Also, I had to ask for them to turn on the air conditioning in the evening a few times as it was turned off when I got home after a night out.
