“Just what a traveller needs! Brilliant”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We visited this hostel at the end of May and found it was brill. Traveling Brazil on a budget this hostal was perfect. You could rent bikes for 3 reals an hour which was nothing. The hostal was next to the lake so you could take out the kayaks they provided for free and spend the day just messing around. They even had surfboards to take out as well. The movie collection was really tasteful so it was wicked just to have a movie day in front of the big plasma and comfy chairs. The breakfast was just unbelievable! They had ham and cheese and a toasties machine, fruit, cereal, tea, coffee, hot choco! The rooms where nice and clean and you could use the kitchen to make your own meals. We had a nice relaxing fun yet cheap time here. Def the hostal to stay in when in Floren!

An amazing place that has everything! The staff are fantastic and really happy to help in anything we needed! The breakfast was amazing! Rooms were spacious and clena. The faculties were brilliant we spent much time playing pool and table tennis. We were allowed to borrow the bikes to pop into time whenever as well as using their kayaks! It really felt comfortable and would have loved to have stayed their longer! Brilliant hostel!

Great little hostel in Lagoa. It is a converted house which is very clean and well set out. It has a very well equipped kitchen with all the basic cooking essentials.
The owners are lovely and very helpful. You can use kayaks and boogie boards for free and rent bikes for only BR$1/hour. They also organise free entry into one of the local night clubs for guests on an almost nightly basis.
We loved this hostel and would recommend to anyone.

This is a wonderful hostel, the best I have found in South America. It is located right next to the lagoon, in the center of the island. Shops and beaches all within your reach.

The hostel is clean, kitchen is great, BBQ is nice. Also pingy pongy table, TV with movies, computer and free internet, kayaks and bikes. BREAKFAST is WONDERFUL!!!

The beds are SO comfortable, you will probably end up staying a few extra days, or weeks.

But the best part of the Hostel, is the staff. All of them go out of their way to make you feel at home, or answer any questions you may have. Enjoy.

Room Tip: They are ALL great. No difference in quality. But the 4bed room has the view!!!

It is a brilliant hostel, in fact the best I have come across, The breakfast was fabulous, fresh cake, Brazilian fruit, cereal, fresh coffee and waffles which ham and cheese. The people are completely delightful, drove me around to see the sights. The location is perfect by the lagoon. I slept really well I would definitely come back here again.

Really friendly staff. Thoroughly enjoyable stay, ended up extending our stay there a few more nights mainly because of the hostel!
