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 ;)
