“A fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Coming to visit Florianopolis from the U.S, this place was great! The outdoor jacuzzi, the pool table and the spacious kitchen all came in handy and was very comfortable. The garden was also nice and peaceful. The staff were very helpful and respectful of my vegetarian diet. The only inconvenience I faced was that there weren't many computers available on premises as my laptop was damaged during my travels.

The hostel is situated roughly 300 feet from anything you might need; be it restaurants, a supermarket, bars, Subway (The Sandwich place, not the underground train), ATMs and the bus terminal from where you can easily access every single point of interest of the island, heck, even the police station is on the street behind it, making it very very safe to walk around at any given time of the day. The Breakfast is ridiculous: Cheese, Ham, Granola, Fruits, Biscuits, Milk, Coffee, Bread and a Panini maker. Make sure you try the Jacuzzi. The staff is helpful, nice and will come up with some places that are not on the map to visit. Trust them, you will be delighted.

I've stayed here more than once, but the first thing that brought me to the hostel was the great value and low price for rooms. I was very happy with how many facilities there are, with a mix of room options, a computer room, a TV room, kitchen/dining area, pool table, and outdoor patio with a jacuzzi tub. The staff are excellent, always very willing to help and make sure you find out about the best places to visit, whether it's nightlife or nature-oriented. And the location is superb - within 2-4 blocks of supermarkets, restaurants, banks, the bus station, and the main street of bars. Plus it's very close to the gorgeous Lagoa da Conceicao, and a short bus ride away from the sand dunes (don't miss out on the opportunity to go sand boarding while you're there!) and Joaquina Beach and Mole Beach. I've been backpacking all throughout South America, and this was one of my favorite places to stay.

Has the potential to be good - common areas seem impressive. However the room we were in was more like a porter cabin which is fine if it's clean but found lots of hairs in the bed and bathroom plus bedbugs. Bedbugs not just in our bed. Curfew on AC, no cups to be found, dirty crockery and fly ridden breakfast! Wouldn't return.

Stayed March 2014, travelled as a couple

This is a great hostel...we stayed in the private room with Air-con (which is only on from 8pm to 10am) we never made it to breakfast as we were always out partying...no thanks to the brilliant staff who knew where to go! They have lots of amazing recommendations for beaches as well. The location is superb; super safe area of Floripa, several big supermarkets, shops and bars. 2 big banks on the corner.

I went to floripa for a weekend and I had a great time, the hostel is very clean and pretty new facilities, also they are under construction for a new meeting area, very nice! the staff was very attention giving us the best options about the night life, in special Rafael very nice guy. The hostel is just about few blocks from nice bars, pub and clubs, also, there are restaurants, banks and pharmacies all very close. I really recomend this hostel, when I come back to floripa for sure I will stay there.

Room Tip: all dorms are very nice, in the 2nd floor I believe they are little bit more quite than downstairs.
