The receptionist Calu is so friendly. She helped us book for a boat tour. She was very available ! The breakfast is very good. Natural juice and dulce de leche jam :). However, the hostel is a little bit outside the downtown but it s ok walking around 10 Minutes. The hostel is near the ocean even if the beach...

Great hostel. No wifi at the 2nd floor rooms! Staff is helpful, and the breakfast served at their restaurant at the beach, which is amazing.. And they also offer tours. There's no doubt that Calu and the rest of the staff made my stay there much more enjoyable!! They were so nice and helped with everything!

I've been to Paraty a couple times and both times I stayed at Geko. They have the best beach bar for a lazy Paraty night, and the receptionist Renata went out of her way to give us the local tips and directions to the best spots. I'll be back as soon as I can, cheers!

The hostel is totally disorganised. The beds and general amenities are of poor quality. In addition, the hostel lacks thorough cleaning! Toilets are dirty and kitchen area is no-go zone. Breakfast on the beach is basic (no cleaning of tables there either).
