This should be the best hostel in Floripa without question. Should be. It has absolutely everything going for it. Great central location next to several beaches, hiking trails, and the best part of the city for nightlife, food, and shopping - Lagoa. It has an outstanding view of the lake where you can watch the sunset at night from the... More

I stayed in the Hostel for only one night, but maybe I would come back, if I wanted to stay at this area of Floripa. The price was fair (50 Reais for 4 Bed Dorm). The view from our room was very nice, you can look to the Lago do Conceicao. There are many little houses so it feels not... More

I knew that I am visiting Ilha de Santa Catarina during winter time but I didn't expected so low temperatures. Outside there was around 8 degrees and inside hostel was the same temperature. One blanket provided by hostel wasn't enough :/ and I am not sure if it was washed after each visit. Bed cloths wasn't very clean as the... More

Stayed here after the carnival in Rio this year. Had the most amazing time! Met LOADS of likeminded travellers, went to the day party which was increeeedible, the food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) they served was yummy and pretty reasonably priced, cute little swimming pool, 5 mins from the beach. Had a great time - the rooms got a bit... More

We stayed here a few nights. It's in a great location and has a beautiful view over the lake. It's reasonably priced but not cheap considering it's a basic hostel. The kitchen doesn't have much equipment, not even cups. The rooms are fine though. Wifi is amazing. The bar is pricy here and unfortunate the included breakfast isn't great.

Visited with a friend and was v disappointed. We expected a lively party hostel with a good atmosphere; it was not to be. Our room (6 bed ladies dorm) absolutely stunk of damp, our 'en suite' facilities didn't work (shower broke, twice) so we used the shared one which then also broke. Staff at front desk very helpful but manageress... More

I'm not sure how this place gets great reviews. We were really disappointed. The location is great. Beautiful view over the lake from the top level, 10 minute walks to the beach and town. My partner and I paid top dollar for a private room with shared bathroom. DO NOT do this. The room was a shoebox. Barely fitting the... More

I would recommend this hostel to anyone staying in flori. The atmosphere was amazing and it felt like there was a real community. The rooms were clean and we had a sea view and air conditioning. The party bus takes you to the nights out with everyone else. The staff were so friendly and we ended up socialising with them... More

Backpackers sunset hostel sits around the bay from the main town, a two minute bus journey away or a 20 minute walk away, looking over the Lagoa, and two minutes walk away from the beach across the other side of the road. The hostel itself is great; it slopes down the hill across many layers and has a decent pool... More
