Staff were amazing. Didn't like the toilet being in the shower. Location was great, and the views were really nice. Wifi was constantly on and off and had no service in the rooms. The lunch buffet was so good. Happy hour free Caparinas were a great start to the night containing a very generous amount of alcohol. Being female sharing mixed dorms was difficult when it came to using the same toilet which got abused by the amount of guys sharing the one toilet.

Great location, its a billion dollar view straight from the reception desk. Mole beach is a short walk away. And the closest town and shops are a 25 minute walk away. But there are buses every half hour. There's other hostels, but if you want friendly Staff, organised events and a great atmosphere, this is it. Florianopolis to me is about parties, relaxing and the beach, This place is central to it all. Highly recommended. Thanks Sunset for the hospitality ;)

Sunset has the best views of any hostel, the staff are friendly and very helpful, and they have so many activities and parties organized for everyday of the week that you will never be bored, and the best surf beach is only 3 minutes walk away!

Amazing hostel with truly amazing staff. The hostel's employees were fun, engaging and truly made you feel welcomed. They went out of their way to ensure everyone had a great experience. The hostel went to great lengths to organize events, whether it's surfing at a new beach in the morning, or going to a crazy Brazilian pool party in the day, or a club at night. They took care of everything, including transfers to the events on their party bus and arranging discounted entry to events. Awesome!

Had a good time here. It's a really big hostel and I prefer smaller ones, but the breakfast was good and the staff were helpful.

The room cleanliness could be a bit better. The beack stuff (chairs, umbrella, beach toys), free caipirinha, and food served at the bar, as well as breakfast are great !

Amazing hostel with great atmosphere. Right on the top of a hill with stunning view. All the staff (from the cleaning ladies to the front desk) are very kind and nice. The restaurant/bar is the place to meet people, definitely a party hostel. Be aware that due to the hill there are steps everywhere and you do have to walk couple minutes do get to the beach.

If you stay in one if the top houses, you will have trouble with the water. A couple of times there was no water, not even for flushing the toilet. Obviously they use watertanks and if they are not filled to a certain amount you won't have water in the top room. Problem: the big dorms are downstairs, so they kind of use up the water. Besides that the hostel had a great vibe. Extremely friendly staff!

The Sunset Backpackers' location is great as well as its facilities - just be prepared for long stairs to reach the rooms. All the structure and services are amazing, and the staff is very helpful all the time, and suggested you lots of programs abd parties. Don't forget to get the beers at the bar, it's the cheapeast good beer ever!

HI I really liked the location and the commun areas in the hostel. However I found it really strange that the kitchen and pool area closed so early. Also I was wondering why people weren´t aloud to bring their own alcoholic drinks. Being promoted a "party hostel" these rules doesn´t make sense to me. Anyway the securtiy was really rude when we once came back at 1 o´clock whereas some days later the whole stuff and other guests came back at 5.30! and made really a lot of noise.

Nice hostel with amazing views and luxury of swimming pool our room was clean and comfortable but we was at the very bottom of the hill and to get a back to top with reception / kitchen / bar etc was a hike and wifi only works at the top of hill not the bottom . I do feel that this hostel was more about making money then helping travellers but most people seemed to be here on a one week holiday from inside Brazil rather then backpackers .

Such a great hostel. I really had a great time there celebrating my birthday with their incredible view of the Sunset at Lagoa da Conceição. 1O minutes walking to my favorite beach - Praia Mole. Everything that they provide are excellent, all facilities, clean bathroom and dorm. I loved the swimming pool and the bar/restaurant, great beer and food. But what make my time there so special were the GREAT staff. Thanks everyone, receptionists, Lívia and Jr. all amazing :)

It's quite far from convenient places like supermarkets and bars,so they sell some products really expensive for the guests.the atmosphere is really nice and they have activities everynite.

Sunset is a bit like a resort with a restaurant open to the public on site and the rooms are quite isolated - it's a big complex with lots of stairs. This hostel may suit others but wasn't us - kitchen facilities also lacking with minimal utensils and one pan (a wok!) Otherwise the view is great and the hostel was not hard to find. Good party atmosphere and cable tv with all channels in the lounge area.

We have just bought new itens for our guests kitchen, so now it´s complete and with all equipments our guests need. Also, theres a bbq area for commum use to all of our guests. We have a restaurant open for everyone in town, as also a pub with live music everyweek, happy hours, and a delicious home made pizzas, burguers, salads, pastas, etc. But if you don´t want to party, we have many commum areas where you can relax, read a book, use internet in your room..
