    An amazing hostel filled with amazing staff! Juan and his crew made it a truly juan-derful stay. It's right on the beach, and about a 10 min walk from the old town. Ideally located! Had a great time in Paraty because of the lovely staff at Geko. Definitely recommend for anyone! Two thumbs up ;)

    Hostel promove a interação das pessoas com o seu bar bera mar, já fiquei hospedado mais de 5 vezes nele. Nicolas o gerente é bem atencioso e prestativo. Se vai a Paraty precisa se hospedar no Geko Hostel.

    The location of the Geko Hostel is truly unbeatable. While the sea isn't crystal clear because of the nearby mangroves, & the sand not silky fine, the beach is still a fabulous place to relax & life seemed to literally stand still. Breakfast was served every morning on the beach (amazing view);bread, ham, cheese, coffee, fresh fruit and cake etc. standard for hostels in Brazil we found. The beds were comfy and linin clean. The staff were great esp. Caroline.

    Great hostel. Air conditioning on the room, no bugs or mosquitos. The breakfast was outstanding. Location is good but a little far from the center (~5-10 min). Just in front of a beach (what makes a really special breakfast with that landscape) but don't swim there (quite dirty).

    Staff very helpful and friendly throughout our stay! Location perfect next to the beach and bars, 10 min walk from historic center! Dorms were basic but fine. Only small issue was that the rooms got cleaned by the cleaners everyday (but not very well! Our room had crums and bits of food on the floor from the other couple that were in the opposite beds after they checked out). Atmosphere was good and othe guests were friendly! Would definitley reccomend!

    Very Good

    Nice bar on the beach although it’s only for the view. Rooms were a bit dark but very clean and organized. Beds had a plastic cover a bit annoying but they were ok. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It’s not located on the town center but it real close by you can easily walk there.

    Very Good

    Very good breakfast and nice atmosphere at the bar across the road. Stayed in a four bed dorm which was very small and no lockers. Shower was also slightly dirty and had a very damp smell.

    Didn’t look so clean to me, had to use a locker in another floor different than the one in my bedroom, beds are covered by a annoying plastic cover which doesn’t look clean and make noise all night so you wake up. Location is outside of the center, nice breakfast, staff is helpful.

    Pros/Cons: This hostel has some of the nicest staff, better than most of South America. Amazing! Must do the boat tour. It is on the beach, but it's not a very good beach. The beach bar staff (not hostel staff) were terrible. The rooms were dark and dingy and small, never felt clean. The bathrooms always had dirty water on the floor. Lastly, there are no keys ... so no keys for the front door, nothing for the room, and no security lockers.
