This hostel is in an awesome location and has great facilities. That said 1 toilet / shower between a 4 and 10 bed dorm meant the toilet was almost always very dirty. The 4 person dorm was also damp. Due to it's location expect to pay a lot for food and drinks and note that you can't bring in your own drinks so have to buy only at the bar. Staff were really friendly and helpful, overall a good place to stay although a bit overpriced for what it is.

Was there 3 nights and the sun was only out for one day which makes all the difference. Great location, staff and facilities though.

Great atmosphere at backpackers sunset! Staff were lots of fun and always making the night life a good vibe. Beds were comfy, unfortunately we got really bad weather so couldn't go down to the beach which is at the doorstep of this hostel. Bus stop is also right out the front making it easy to go to town for less than 3reals. Great hostel!

Very enjoyable stay, I would definitely recommend the hostel. Lots of activities to get involved in and a vibrant and social bar in the evenings.

I had a great stay here. The staff are incredibly friendly, welcoming and helpful, the location is good - very close to one beautiful beach, within walking distance of others, and near to shops, etc... the food and restaurant are great, as is the free sunset caipirinha... Atmosphere here is just perfect, and facilities good, too. The view is amazing! Only downside is all the stairs - but it keeps you fit, at least!

Hey Verena, thanks for your review! In a very short time we will have internet all around the hostel. We are just waiting for the cables arrive, so we can go on! Safe travels, and we hope to see you again!

Great Location between 2 amazing beaches and the best town of Floripa: Lagoa! The staff was a lot of fun and very kind, the vibe was good and the free caipirinha at sunset was the perfect way to meet other guests! Overall a really good party hostel, probably the best of Floripa. The only downside were the showers, one of them didn't work properly and they weren't that clean...

Atmosphere is nice. Its a party hostel. You can meet a lot of people. Beautiful view of Lagoa. Very noise sometimes. Difficult to sleep when your room is close to the kitchen and people come back from the party starving. Toilets not that good.

I stayed in a very small room for 6 beds and my locker was in the hallway. The shared bathroom was dirty and we had to share only one with lots of other people. Prices were expensive at the bar and their restaurant was closed and to eat I had to go all the way down the hill where the hostel is. Although it has a great vibe, it was only because of the people that were staying there too. I wouldn't recomend it.

Hey Aline, we have an upstars bathroom also that you could used(our staff let people know once they take them to room). We organize daily happy hours, with different promotions. Its a backpackers bar and not a hotel bar..During your stay here, our restaurant was under renovations. You could order differente types of food at the reception, as we told every guest about the situation. But wouldn´t you complain about the price too? We do provide a great vibe, coz our lovely guests and our staff too

I've been in few countries over the past few years and this is by far the best hostel I found so far. The atmosphere is amazing and the staff does a great job when it comes to entertainment people. The location is just great as we can easily walk to Praia Mole and Lagoa da Conceição.

Great hostel with an awesome atmosphere!! Everyday there´s something happening at the hostel. The tours organized were a great way to get to know the island. I loved the party bus!! Make sure you try the dinners, as they were super tasty and with good price.. Also, 1 free caipirinha everynight was a great way to meet other people. Obrigado Sunset team
