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

A friend and I stayed at this hostel just before carnaval. It has all the elements of a great hostel...friendly staff, great views, lots of activities on offer, a bar, restaurant with yummy food - try the soy bean burger or the pizzas, close to praia mole. I wish I could stay here longer :(. I'd definately come back.

I highly recommend this hostel for those people who wanna enjoy and meet guys in Floripa. The service is really good, the guys who work there are friendly and kind. They organize everyday something both during the day and the night. Glad to spend time there..and a special thanks to Pippo... our trip wouldn't be the same without your exuberance!

We were recommended this place by friends and told you can't stay anywhere else. The first night was great, we had no complaints. However, we decided to extend our stay another night and didn't have as enjoyable experience. We were told we didn't have to move rooms and then when we got back late at night told otherwise. The second... More

I honestly didn't enjoy my stay there, till the point that I decided to leave earlier and changed Hostel. The location is awesome and the rooms are big - I have to admit that. However the staff is very unfriendly, they don't make you feel welcome at all, but they treat you as a number as they are very business-oriented.... More

This is one of the best hostels in Floripa for partying. The place looks lovely, the staff are so kind and helpful! Patricia helped us to book our portuguese website nightbus to Iguacu, thanks! Beaches near, pool on site, live music in the evening. Great experience, we had a blast.

If you want a hostel with excursions, great staff and fun times. This is it! Great location on top of a mountain close to one of the many beaches. During dinner you can sit in the restaurant, that serves cheap meals in big portions, and look out over the bay for an amazing view. Make sure to go along with... More

A one-day-only stay suddenly became a week, and a week suddenly became unforgettable. The staff is incredible, they made it feel like home since my check-in. Amazing experience with great people and a extraordinary view. I strongly recommend!
