“Good Backpacker Hostel with friendly vibe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

I stayed here for a number of nights and have enjoyed myself in this relaxed well equipped hostel. You get a wristband on checking which all your drinks and food get charged to. You can pay it off at anytime or on checkout. Free breakfast which is substantial and filling. For 20 Reals you can enjoy the all you can eat lunch buffet that goes from about 1200-1600 make the most of it. Beers are around 6 Reals each, with a happy hour at 1830-1930 with a free caparinia. There is a vibrant evening bar and pool. You can catch a bus from the bus stop outside the hostel (the 360) to Lagoa for 3 reals. It takes about 10 minutes to get to the central bus station. In town there is a Bank of Brasil and a subway. Try and buy a large water from the supermarket as the hostel charge 3.50 Reals for a Small bottle if water. There is no free drinking water either. By the central bus station there is a good gym with cardio and free weights 35 Reals a day or 80 fir a week. It opens all week and until 1400 Saturday and closed Sunday. Down the road from the hostel there are bars where you can buy large beers for 8 Reals. They also have pool tables. There are many sushi bars along with dune surfing and water activities along the lake front. You can walk to Lagoa in about 40 mins. Make sure you keep on top of your tab and enjoy Floruanopolis.

Loved my stay at this hostel! Didn't know much about the area when I arrived, but everyone was so helpful! Met some really good people who were also staying in the hostel which made my time there awesome. Staff told me all the great spots to check out during the day, and the best places to go at night. I definitely want to come back sometime soon, and I will definitely be staying at this hostel again. Definitely do one of the hostels tours, they sure know how to have a good time!

We went for lunch here a couple of times and its pretty good. All you can eat buffet for about 15 reais. We are vegan and had lots of options. If I was backpacking I would definately stay here. Good social vibe and great view of the lagoa.

The hostel is very clean and safe. The food was also very good with their in house restaurant/bar and a big breakfast. The staff were friendly and very helpful with tips on getting around the island. The best part is it has lots of great common areas and being a big hostel it was easy to meet other travelers who are interested in going places you are. They also have someone who organizes daytime and night time activities which cost money but the ones i did were worth it. There are surfboards you can use and the beach is an easy walk away. Absolutely recommend staying here
