ABSOLUTELY LOVE this hostel, the staff are so friendly, the rooms are clean, everyone is very sociable. Every night, there is a different type of buffet for about £4, for example, thai, italian, pizza, mexican, barbeque, brazilian etc. The staff also organise nights for the visitors to go out on which are all very fun. when we were there, we were lucky wiht the weather, so they also organised us a trip to a close island called campeche island, with barely any inhabitants which was idyllic - if you get the chance, go!! Definitely recomment, it was a great stay and we were sad to leave!

Me and my boyfriend stayed in the 10-bed dorm for 2 nights. It was very tight and did not have many blankets - it gets cold in the winter. There was not much space for our backpacks. Also the people in the dorm next door were very loud in the middle of the night, so we had to use earplugs. There are very few electrical sockets to charge stuff. It is a long walk from the bus terminal when you have heavy backpacks. Had to pay 3,5R for towel rent. Not much privacy when showering in the upstairs bathroom, use the downstairs ones.

So, those are the negatives, the reasons I did not give 5 stars. The positives are: Friendly and attentive staff, all speaking english. Good breakfast with fruit and good coffee. Relatively cheap for Brasil. Good atmosphere, wifi working, hot showers, everything clean. Cheap and good buffet dinners in the evening with free caiprinhas :) Music turned off around 11pm, so quiet except people speaking loudly in other dorms.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the 10-bed dorm, it was the only one available when we were there.

I spent a few nights here and very happily so. The staff have a wonderful attitude to their guests, very welcoming and helpful. I thought it was great value, very sociable and the dinner was fantastic, especially at the price. Would thoroughly recommend.
My only negative was that it can get quite chilly at night and there were a limited number of blankets available but otherwise a great stay. Thank you.

Had an amazing time at Tucano House! Planned to stay there for 4 days but ended up for 15 days! The staff are so friendly and helpful. And the chef made a tasteful buffet every night with food from all over the world! When I visit Floripa again I will definitely stay here again!

I stayed in Tucano for Christmas. I simply could not ask for something more!
The Staff is great (they really know the Island and they are always up for going out and show you the best in town!)

The atmosphere is simply magic, because it seems like staying in a big family. Seriously, was terrific!

The rooms and the structure are good as well, with an awesome outside bed that I loved.

If you are in Florianopolis, you have no choice!

Really helpful and friendly staff, provide lots of info and group excursions if you want them. Option to have the communal dinner, a good way to socialise, or use the guest kitchen. Staff make sure that the party ends at 11pm and gets moved out to the bars/clubs. Great breakfast, lots of fruit! My only gripe is the cramped 10 person dorm I was stuck in.

I stayed in Tucano for a week during Jan 2013 and had the best time ever! We initially booked in for a couple of nights and stayed for 8 in total, just couldn't leave! When we first arrived in Floripa they were fully booked so we stay in a hostel down the road for a couple of nights, but were so glad we moved!

The staff here are amazing, everyone was so helpful and always smiling. They have dinners every night, all you can eat for a great price and the food was always delicious! we ate here most nights as was cheaper than eating out.

If you want to meet other travellers this is the ideal place. They organise a party in a different club every night, and a day trip which varies each day. The meals bring everyone together so its really easy to meet other people. They do have a policy of no noise after 11pm, so everyone that wants to party leaves the hostel, and those who want to sleep stay. I never had a problem with noise in the rooms at all.

The only negatives are that the pool is very small, not really something you would use. They only put the aircon on during the night, so is very hot during the day. The location is in a great area and close to shops, restaurants, everything you need. but if you want to venture further then you have to take the bus, although there is a very nice beach only a 10 min bus ride, or a 40 min walk away.

It is also very expensive, all the trips, parties etc cost a lot of money, but are also really worth it if you can afford it! I guess Brazil is just an expensive place so this can't be avoided. I will definitely be coming back to this hostel in the future! would say it is the best hostel I have stayed at in my 7 month trip around south america! go here!!
