Big hostel with a lot of party people. met some really nice people. sits far away from the center so youre dependent of hostel organised transfers to partys and day trips. makes it expensive. I really recomend the treck to Lagoinha do Leste. restaurant at the hostel is a bit pricy for the quality of the buffet but there was a cool churrasco night one of the nights there. Hostel is on a hill so you have to climb a lot of steps to get from the room to the road, gets old real soon.
I had a great stay here at Sunset, whether you want to party or chill out... The choice is yours. I would have to say the staff definitely made the hostel. They are always so helpful, genuine and lovely. Great atmosphere & the live music was awesome. A special mention to Lu for the lift to my vegetables! Remember the PUZZLE!!! You will have a great time no matter your agenda... I highly recommend Sunset!
Really well setup hostel. Staff are awesome and the meals out of the bar/restaurant were fantastic! View is excellent and they have multiple day and night activities. Good breakfast and clean.
Well located, great atmosphere

Nice hostel, few minutes from the beach, free sunbeds, really nice staff. Only the kitchen is a bit disappointing
Good location, but a bit too commercial for my taste. Kitchen closes at 10pm (they have an own restaurant) and transfers to parties can be arranged, sometimes a bit expensive. Overall good hostel, but I didn't like the atmosphere.
It was a really good holiday! I've stay in this hostel for one week and i am very happy to had choose this one! The staff is really friendly and they can help you each time u need something! the guy who organizes the parties is very nice, do not miss the tour around the island . The hostel is clean, and I had an amazing view from my room, the food is also good! And p12's party are harder than I could imagine !!! Love it,
Give the staff a raise. Give the staff some praise. Individual small fans for each bed would make the sleep more comfortable. Sleeping on the top bunk last night without a fan blowing in my direction felt like a sauna. Personally I would prefer to have more fruit options with granola and yogurt for breakfast. Ham and cheese on a bun gets kind of boring after a few days, switch it up a bit with healthier options and your guests would probably appreciate it. Transfer costs too high..
Very friendly hostel with lovely atmosphere and beautiful view over the Lagoa and only a 10 min walk away from Praia Mole. If you travel on your own this nice place to meet other travelers and a good locaton to explore the beaches of Santa Catarina.
Great hostel, lovely view from the restaurant, friendly and helpful staff. Lots of steps down to the rooms which is not fun with your bags on, but the pool makes up for that. A bus ride away from the beach, I preferred their sister hostel Share House because it was right by the beach.
It was a great time in Backpackers Sunset. The food, staff and view there are awesome! If I have anything to complain about, I'd say that the bed wasn't really good and the walls are very thin for a private and more expensive room.

Really great resort-like hostel located near Praia Mole. The staff and amenities were great. My only complaints were the inability to use wifi in rooms and the distance from my room (a hike all the way to the bottom) to the hostel entrance.
You spend a bit of money but it's been the highlight if the trip. Perfect location! Overlooking the lagoon with a good view and near the beach. Great activities through the hostel.
One of the best hostels due to its very friendly staff, Always willing to help, great restaurant with bar with good food, good dorms, nice common areas, near to beautiful beaches!
Great location and atmosphere! Parties every night outside thte hostel and calm place to sleep. Good staff, everyone in good humour. lovedi it!
The staff here are amazing, help you with anything, junior and his dad are legends, even got the old man to come to a few parties. The position of the hostel is good 5 min walk to mole beach, every night there is a party of some sort, was here with 10 Aussie boys party all night surfed all day.

Love love loved the staff, atmosphere, view and location!!! ive already booked in for my 3rd visit!
Went here based on many recommendations and wasn't disappointed. Cool location, with a view of the lagoon, but a short walk from the beach. In contrast, some other hostels are located on the beaches themselves. The hostel arranges a night out every night and a day trip every day, which are great ways to meet people if travelling alone. Also has an awesome all-you-can-eat buffet lunch for 15 reais. The place also boasts some of the best staff I came across in SA. A great group of people.
O hostel é maravilhoso, adorei a estadia definitivamente. Só tenho a agradecer a todos os Staff que foram super atenciosos e gente boa durante minhas 4 noites por aí (especialmente pra guria de óculos da recepção que eu esqueci o nome hahaha, desculpa). Um único ponto que, não sei se seria possível, é ter um espaço comum pra galera ficar depois da 00h pra pelo menos poder conversar, jogar cartas, etc, porque nem sempre as opções de baladas que estão próximas agradam. Muito obrigado pela estadia!
