What an excellent place to be. After 4 days in Floripa I'm tempted to not show up to my flight to Rio tomorrow. The owner of the hostel, Gueko is the happiest most genuine person you might ever meet. Rooms are basic, but you are 10 feet from Armacao Beach and a 10 minute walk to Matadeiro. Both are awesome. Common area includes a pool table, ping pong table, foosball, hammocks and a churrascaria grill. Wifi is fast ans signal is good in the rooms. The people I met staying at this hostel are exactly the types of people I wanted to meet while travelling. Highly recommended! Thanks Gueko!

Im sitting in the hostel right now only five metres from some of the most beautiful beaches and area Ive seen, and Ive done a lot of travelling. The staff are super friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is relaxed with not an ounce of any kind of stress and there is music playing as I write and tonight there is live samba music in the bar right next door. Its not the Ritz but boy does it make up for it in other ways. The boss Ghekko (sorry if I spelt it wrong) is a real character full of joy and happiness and Natalia is also super cool. I recommend this place to everyone who appreciates hostels and the traveller culture, you must come here its one in a million!!! I just wish we could stay longer...apparently everyone stays more nights than they originally booked!!

I hadn't planned to visit Florianopolis during my tour through Argentina and Brazil but when someone recommended it at a hostel in Buenos Aires, I had to check it out. When I arrived it was quiet with the population of the hostel out either sand boarding, sun-baking or just generally enjoying the delights of the south island. Its at night when the place comes alive. every night there is a different local act on in the bar beside the hostel ranging from a samba band, fire dancers, belly dancing, just brilliant. Facilities are basic but the place makes up for it in character. I loved my time at Bells Company

Room Tip: If its really warm, go for the big 24 bed dorms for more air circulation.
