Furniture is dirty, the dorm I had to stay in smelled like urine. Can you imagine sleeping in a bed which stinks of piss? Purely gross! When I saw the place I wanted to walk out, but it was in the middle of the night I had no other option. I slept half awake, I thought things would be stolen... More

A great option for those looking for a cheap and well located hostel is near the social center of the city.In the surroundings there are nightclubs and restaurants, plus the proximity of the most famous beaches of Florianópolis!

This hostel was completely disgusting. We had to walk through a dirty laundry filled with wet clothes to even get to our room, then immediately noticed the door trim was leaking which dripped on you every time you walked in or out of the room. The room stank like wet dog, and the bed was damp. The bathroom was pretty... More

I spent here only one night. Staff are nice and friendly. The room was clean with private bathroom. It had a nice living room with a big screen to watch the world cup matches. Good location near the bus station, the lagoon and some beautiful beaches.

Coming to visit Florianopolis from the U.S, this place was great! The outdoor jacuzzi, the pool table and the spacious kitchen all came in handy and was very comfortable. The garden was also nice and peaceful. The staff were very helpful and respectful of my vegetarian diet. The only inconvenience I faced was that there weren't many computers available on... More

The hostel is situated roughly 300 feet from anything you might need; be it restaurants, a supermarket, bars, Subway (The Sandwich place, not the underground train), ATMs and the bus terminal from where you can easily access every single point of interest of the island, heck, even the police station is on the street behind it, making it very very...

I've stayed here more than once, but the first thing that brought me to the hostel was the great value and low price for rooms. I was very happy with how many facilities there are, with a mix of room options, a computer room, a TV room, kitchen/dining area, pool table, and outdoor patio with a jacuzzi tub. The staff... More

Has the potential to be good - common areas seem impressive. However the room we were in was more like a porter cabin which is fine if it's clean but found lots of hairs in the bed and bathroom plus bedbugs. Bedbugs not just in our bed. Curfew on AC, no cups to be found, dirty crockery and fly ridden... More

This is a great hostel...we stayed in the private room with Air-con (which is only on from 8pm to 10am) we never made it to breakfast as we were always out partying...no thanks to the brilliant staff who knew where to go! They have lots of amazing recommendations for beaches as well. The location is superb; super safe area of... More
