The Backpackers Share House Floripa
Reviewed November 2, 2013

When I arrived to Barra de Lagoa in Florianopolis I noticed two hostels- Banana Beach Hostel and The Backpackers Share house.
I noticed that the Backpackers has better vibes so I went inside. unfortunately they didn't have room for me, so I had to stay in Banana beach hostel (which had smell of pee in the room).

I asked to be on the waiting list for the backpackers, so three days later, I was in. Make sure you reserved a bed for yourself in advance because it's always packed.

This place is AMAZING if you are friendly and looking for friends from all over the world.
I can tell you that I made 5 friends for life.

The warm, homey and friendly atmosphere thanks to the great staff makes its so incredible and makes you so sad to leave. I stayed there 7 days and could stay longer.

They arrange barbeque nights over there (very decent price) and also arrange rides for different parties in tow.

Dying to get back there, since The Backpackers will always have big place in my heart.

PS when you are there, please give Letícia kiss from me ;)

I liked backpackers share house.

- It was kept clean
- It had a good crowd and plenty to do
- The food they put on every few nights was amazing. Free caipirinha every night!
- Good TV and music system
- Staff are amazing and friendly.

The only down side, and it's a really annoying one, causes me to mark them down as it was a consistent problem.

- Staff noise is horrendous in the mornings. I didn't wake up naturally once, I was always awoken by the staff. The rooms are right by the communal area so in the mornings there would be joking at chatting at between 7am and 8 am when breakfast is being prepared.
I can understand kitchen noise as food for breakfast has to be prepared but the general shouting, talking and joking has to be toned down a bit. Some of us only went to bed a few hours earlier and wanted to sleep beyond 7! Almost everyone I spoke to commented on the same issue.

One morning at 9am one of the staff came into my dorm. Some of my room mates had checked out early to get a bus (5am). The cleaner wanted to get a head start and started cleaning while the rest of the room was asleep. That's not too bad as it can be done quietly, the problem is that she was mid conversation with another staff member and they both carried on having the conversation loudly in the room for several minutes.....with everyone slowly waking up and thinking 'what the hell?!'.

The staff needs a little more respect with regards to noise and guests.

Fantastic hostel to explore the island of Florianopolis! Beautiful location, very friendly staff and great facilities and communal areas. Only problem is they should definitely advertise their in-house BBQs and Brazilian home cooked food more and as a perk of your stay - great value and so so delicious, some of the best meals we are in Brazil!

Stayed there for almost a week.
The hostel is a minute walking distance from the beach.
Can rent kaiak for free to sail in the river - also has surfing boards.
Has a very tasty breakfest.
The hostel offers different kinds of local food at dinner (for paiment).
Offers different kinds of tours every day - visit the beaches, parties at night...
Recommended - next to the hostel there is a small beach where you can jump from a high rock into the water. direction: when exiting the hostel, turn left until you get to a small wooden gate and then turn to the rocks on the sea. there!
