The Backpackers Share House Floripa
Reviewed August 23, 2011

After backpacking for several years now this hostel was the most enjoyable hostel i've ever stayed at. The owners and staff are all super friendly, the vibe of the whole place is exactly what you want from a hostel, and the views over the beach which is right below are incredible. If you;re lucky enough to be there on one of their sunday bbq's where master chef tim cook sup a feast fit for a king make sure you dont have a big breakfast beforehand to save some room for it all. cant wait to get back there.

A friend and I stayed here in November 2009. An absolutely fantastic time. Great staff and ownership, great food, great location and most of all, fantastic vibe. I would definitely go back.

The location great, friendly staff & a great atmosphere. Stayed in the double room which was nice but shame the toilet closest to the room did not work. Otherwise a great stay.

I stayed here on a recommendation of a friend of a friend and they were spot on. The location is amazing, pretty much the last house before the canal and beach, it is very secure and the views are amazing... miles of deserted beach, forest and blue sky and lots of roof decks to enjoy it from. Barra is only a little town though, so it is very much a place to chill. Keep that in mind if you want to seriously party, shop etc. as these things are a bus ride away. It is an enchanting corner of the island though... reminiscant of and even a bit better than the Byron Bay area...

Tish who runs the hostel is a well travelled Brazillian with excellent English, and an even better sense of humour ;-) She is great, and bent over backwards to look after everyone who was there. Indeed all the staff were helpful, sociable and fun.

I stayed in a private double room, the Porno room (because of the mirrored ceiling) and that was easily the best accomodation I had in Brazil for the price.

Lastly there is always something on, organised by the hostel, so you can have a great time there without having to be too proactive. (Surf trips, BBQs, clubbing etc.) One example... I was there to watch the CL final, and we got a free beer every time our team scored. Luckily I had put my name down for Barcelona ;-)

Perfect Spot for Floripa. Right on the beach. Staff are cool out, cheff is excellent. He even cooked up some vegatarian meals for my girlfriend. I loved this place. Only had four nights but easily would have stayed a month. Only con was my Girlfriends and I had a room that was room within a room if you know what i mean. But the view was class. Great surf, great food, great weather......Paradise

Good location- 4 minutes walking from the beach, overlooking the beach and right over the river. a but grungy and the private double room & bathroom were totally not what we were expecting: 10 people for one bathroom/shower closet with a plastic folding door that doesn't lock, a dead roach in the shower, and dirty floor. also, our room had broken windows and "lockers" were just cheap hooks on dresser shelves where you could put your lock around. good thing it was a safe hostel. otherwise, for the most part, staff was helpful, good breakfast for a hostel that included ham & fruits, and nice location. we personally wouldn't stay at this hostel again, but wouldn't discourage other backpackers looking for a good time in a good location not to.
