Just stayed at this hostel and had a brilliant time, easy to meet people and hostel staff so friendly and helpful. Everyone was so welcoming and helped us arrange buses, transfers, days out and nights out! Everything is clean and beds are comfy and made for you. A very happening hostel with a good night life, really enjoyed my stay here :)


Expected a lot of this hostel because of the high rating but it's not living up to it.. Hostel has a really good location but thats it for me. Not even a good place to brush your teeth! 2 toilets and two showers for way to many people. The people who are there make the atmosphere, not the hostel. Tattood guy behind the check in is cool and the barman as well, rest looks a little chaggy!

Thankx for your feedback! We probably are not right for you and you werent for us! And chaggy is you and your mate that didnt socialize! All the best!


This is a great hostel and i'd stay here again. The location is awesome in Barra, although to find any real nightlife you have to travel to another town like Lagoa de Conceicao. The breakfast was good here and the staff were great. The price was very high for what it was, I don't think the double was worth it. The dorms were pretty good although crazy expensive during carnaval.The atmosphere was awesome and we had a really good time here. It's very social


Great staff, great atmosphere, great people. Beach just around the corner. Had an awesome stay here. Would recommend to anyone.


We had the absolute best time at Sharehouse and will most definitely be back in we ever find ourselves in Floripa! The staff was so helpful and nice, breakfast was delicious with lots of fruit and the beds were very comfortable along with clean bathrooms. Our time at Sharehouse really was made amazing, though, because of all the people we met so hopefully you'll get a good group of people to hang out with and possibly go out with! Thanks, Sharehouse! We miss you!


Awesome place!! Best hostel in Floripa for sure! Great staff and awesome atmosphere, perfect location by the beach! Thanks for the great time guys!!!! BT


Well. My friend and i just came from another hostel in Lagoa de Conceição, which was way better in many ways. So we our expectations about Sharehouse was quite big, but when we came we got dissapointed. The place was small, the room had no aircondition, and the price for the room was too expensive (i know it was high season, but still the price was above what other hostels was able to offer).

WOW.... No really explanation to give a really low rate...We dont advertise about air con so why were you expecting it?? Sometimes when you expect too much yes you can get disappointed! Not easy to please everyone Our prices are the avarage price for hostels in our location (BY the BEACH, with lots of freebies e information)! Not really sure what you were expecting! All the best!


Great party hostel! The hostel overlooks Barra da Lagoa beach and is only a short bus ride away from Lagoa da Conceicao, where you'll find the best nightlife. The staff organise lots of day and night activities and the free caipirinha every night encourages people to socialise. Breakfast is good and they offer dinner on some nights. Beware that if you pay for drinks, food or excursions with a card they'll charge you more so make sure you have enough cash with you.


I was planning to stay for a couple of days and ended up staying for 3 weeks in the hostel! Breakfast is excellent, the hostel is really clean, close to beaches & shops and at night the hostel organizes transfers to go to the best places in Floripa to go partying. Staff is really helpful and nice to talk with. Free 'Caipis' every day and excellent WIFI connection. Bus stop is really close from the hostel, so you won't walk a lot to get here... Thanks Gi, Emma, Caro, Loch, Leti, Babs and Bruno!


The hostel is nice, it has a good atmosphere, but i thought there was a lack of professionalism. They would care about the guest much more as friends than as paying guests. The room was really dirty, my bed sheets were stained, there was just one bathroom for more than 12 people and the shower was really bad as well. The room is outside the hostel and is kept open by the day, so anyone could get in. There was just small lockers for the valuable things. I had fun, but I wouldn't stay there again


Great location in florianopolis. Good facilities, staff have a lot to offer. Kitchen was a bit limited


Real nice hostel with great view and perfect atmosphere. Met a lot of nice people. Even people staying in other hostels in Floripa would change and check in to the Share House because of the good vibe.


Where do I start. Best hostel we have experienced in our 5 months of travels. Staff Tish, Babs and Carro were incredible. Mani behind the bar was a legend, Sammy/Archer were amazing cooks and Loch was a great bloke full of knowledge. Hostel is in a great location overlooking the beach, facilities were very well maintained and clean, atmosphere is excellent with the dinners and nightly free drink. Only negative was when we had to leave. Thanks guys we had the best time! Franky and Celia


The Cave Boys had an amazing 3 weeks in Floripa. Can't put a finger on anything. Staff was amazing. They treated us like family. Ohh and shout out to Sammy and Archy ;)


Great hostel, great atmosphere, great people. Would have loved to stay here longer x


I had an amazing time. The hostel is cool, so is the staff and it is really clean and comfortable. Totally recomended!


The Backpackers Hostel was absolutely outstanding. The place directly on the beach, the view on the sea and all the people I met in the Hostel were adorable. :-) I guess if I will visit brazil again, I will travel to this beautiful island and stay in this Hostel. Tchau Christian

My stay in Backpackers Share House was just super great. The location is super nice, direktly at the beach, with a great view from the terasse. Nevertheless, you need some time to get there from the bus station and especially from the Airport, but it is totally worth it. The staff is super nice. You don't have the feeling that they are just working there, they are kinda living there with you. So I lend the surfboard from the bar keeper with other guys. Totally recommended.


Amazing hostel!! Beautiful view over the beach couldn't of ask for better. Staff we're excellent really made us feel at home and had lots of fun, they organised lots of trips and meals which we enjoyed. Great place to chill and have a good time with a party option every night! Thanks for helping me with the foot guys we will treasure our time spent there. Also if Bruno is still there tell him we hope he finds an amazing new flat and job good luck!! Love to all jack & Vicky xxx


The best Hostel ever!!!!!
