We enjoyed our stay at El Gecko! It was a little further out of the way than we were expecting and took about 8 minutes to walk from the hostel to the main road for food, bus, groceries. The facilities are cute, well kept, and had a lot of love put into them. The staff were a bit absent and directions were unclear at times. Having a good number to text with questions could have been helpful. We appreciated the size of the room, comfortable enough for the two of us to move around.

Me and my boyfriend loved staying here, we had been traveling for quite some time when we stayed here and it was so peaceful and quaint and after staying in dorms we appreciated the affordable and comfortable privates. Kitchen was perfect and had everything we needed. We did 2 tours with the family that owned it and had a great time :)
