Neighborhood

Geko Hostel and Pousada is located in a paradisiacal spot. Right in front of the Pontal beach and very near to Paraty downtown.
The small coastal village of Paraty is a virtual museum within a tropical paradise. Paraty has become a popular tourist area in recent years, renowned for the beauty of the town and the magnificence of the coast and mountains in the region. The Portuguese colonial and Brazilian Imperial architecture has been perfectly preserved and the many buildings have been converted into eclectic and artsy shops and restaurants. Automobile traffic is forbidden inside the city in order to preserve the tranquil ambience.

The quaint historic village is surrounded by beaches and national parks offering tourists a panoply of activities to enjoy. Paraty has become a major international destination for Brazilian as well as international tourists seeking sunshine and spectacular beaches (including snorkeling and scuba).

Points of interest
  • Pontal Beach (in Front)

Free Transfer
Geko Hostel offers you a free pick up upon your arrival in Paraty from the bus station to our hostel. This service is offered for free to our guests staying a minimum of 3 nights (or equivalent booking to R$100/US $60) and that have already confirmed the booking using one of our payment methods.
Please note that in case of delays, it is the passenger responsibility to inform Geko Hostel about the new arrival time.
In case the passenger has not informed our staff about the delay, Geko Hostel will not be responsible for the transfer charge. The passenger will be held responsible for the total amount of the transfer in.
If the passenger did not arrive at all, then the full cost of the transfer will be charged to the customer.

This free transfer service is offered between 9.00 am to 10.00 pm.
In case you require a transfer outside this schedule, we offer you the possibility of booking it with us at a rate of R$ 15.-

Over-bookings
For reservations guaranteed with a 50% deposit or more at time of booking, rooms are held until hostel check-out time the day following arrival.
In the event more guests arrive than can be accommodated due to hostel overbooking or an unforeseen circumstance, and the hostel is unable to hold rooms consistent with booking room hold policy, the hostel will attempt to accommodate guests, at its expense, at a comparable hostel in the area for the oversold night(s), and will pay for transportation to that hostel.

Improvements
In our strive to improve and upgrade our facilities to satisfy all our guests, Geko Hostel sometimes undergoes refurbishment work in some parts of the hostel. We do our best to ensure guests will not be affected by the renovations but please beware of the latter possibility.
