pros: nice people, good vibe, good breakfast and even better dinner (20$ add.), beds are comfy and air condition is great and mandatory in the floripa heat and humidity. cons: I would avoid the daily tours they provide (over priced and not so fun).

I stayed in a private room and a dorm in Tucano House for 3 nights in January 2015. I paid 220 reals (around 55 UK pounds at the time) per night for the private room and 70 reals (about 17 UK pounds) per night for the dorm. Staying at Tucano House is a good way of meeting other travellers as... More

I stayed at Tucano House for 2 nights and had a really great time. Fantastic location at the Lagoa de Conceição, great opportunities for nightlife and walking to Costa da Lagoa (2hrs) and Praia Mole (under 1 hr). The place was buzzing because of people travelling for the World Cup - a lot of Australians had chosen to stop over... More

Me and a friend travelled south america for 3 months, staying in dozens of different hostels of extremely varying quality and I have to say that we both agreed this one was the best overall experience. Whilst it may not have been the best in some categories - The bathrooms were a bit small and not super clean, the rooms... More

Tucarno House Backpackers is on a quiet residential street in Lagoa, the party hub of Florinopolis. The hostel is very clean, attended to throughout the day with great bar and outdoor facilities, perfect to relax after a night out. The no noise policy and closing of the bar at 11pm ensure those who want to sleep can and the daily... More

This hostel has a large number of awards on the wall touting it as the best hostel in Brazil/World with friendly staff and a great atmosphere etc... But we found that its living on its heyday as the last awards were from 2009/2010, with photos and thank you notes from guests also dating back to this time. The 'family feel... More

I recently stayed in Tucano house for nearly 2 weeks and completely fell in love with it. The quality of accommodation is good but Tucano is much more than a place to stay. Every night there are well priced (usually 18 reals) meals that are incredible - nearly everyone in the hostel eats them every night. So it's incredibly easy... More

This was easily the best hostel I've ever been to; especially in South America. The facilities are clean and well-kept. Great atmosphere and fantastic food. In fact, I still carry their business card in my wallet, and I've been back in Canada for 6 months now. I have recommended Tucano House to many people, and I will continue to do... More
