    I Had such a great time at Geckos Hostel! I got welcomed so nicely from the people there.If you want, its really ist to meet people in the Hostel, hang out together, go for hikes or to the beaches. The bbq on saturdays was amazing.It was by far the cleanest Hostel I have stayed in whole South America. I didn't missed out a thing in the kitchen either. Max the owner and the workers&volunteers are doing such a great Job .Instead of 3 dass I stayed almost 2 weeks. I would highly recommend it!(:

    Stay here. Good breakfast, fruits, bread, cereal, juice, cake, coffee. Great location, center of lagoa right around the corner and all beaches uberable. Great rooms, cleaned daily and good beds.. Fun activities, join the bbq! And above all a welcome, lively atmosphere. Somebody was always up for a game, chat or activity. Loved my stay :-)

    Great hostel. Will be back for sure. They just need to put a lamp on the private room. Its either completely dark with the lights out or too bright with the lights on.

    Best hostel! Best staff! Awesome vibes- super easy to meet other travelers if you are solo! Cannot recommend this hostel enough. One of the best I’ve stayed in in South America. Only area for improvement would be the showers- hot water seemed to only work in 1 of the 3 showers, which isn’t ideal in winter when it’s chilly.

    Nice hostel, small rooms so beds are very close, 5 minute walk into town and bus stop to get to a few different beaches. Great for the price

    We were there on off season so hard to comment on the atmosphere. Great location and great price. They do laundry in 2 hours. Lots of good restaurant and bars nearby. Just beside the lagoons. The beaches are a bit of a walk but you can sandboard nearby.

    Good location two doors down from a small supermarket/mini mart and with two nice beaches are within walking distance and close to bus route WiFi worked well Nice social vibe Showers had hot water and ok pressure Only complaint was they need to invest in commercial quality sheets & bedding - duvet & pillow smelt like a sweaty teenage boy If you’re into hiking and beautiful beaches then Uber (45min) Or bus (2hrs) to Praia de Lagoinha Do Leste in the south - it’s a beautiful beach and hike!
