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!
