We were a group of four people and we all had a great time at the backpackers sunset, we all might can back as soon as we have a chance!!!!!


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


Perfect Hostel, on a beautiful location, the food is very nice (especially the burgers). Nice bar, reception at the perfect location, nice place to hang around, quiet rooms, nice decorations. Only the beds (mattresses en pillows) are smelling very dirty. You should stay here if you go to Florianopolis.

Hey Jaymi, tudo bom? Thanks for your review. Make us feel happier and more excited to keep going our job at Sunset! About the pillow and matress, they all have been on the sun, and got an extra cleaning care. We hope you are having a great time at your travels!


very close to the beach, so it was fantastic, but i didnt like the staff so much, and my room was so downstairs, it was a nightmare climbing those stairs everytime i wanted to go out or to sit in the tv room with everybody... the rooms are not clean, everything smells like mouldiness....disgusting!! well, if you are a surfer or all you have in mind is the beach...so its not bad. one of the best thing is that there is very good sushi place near the hostel...:)


Only the view from the balcony is worth the money. But the Staff is excelent as well everyone speaks good english and tries you to help when ever there is something. Had a great time there.


Nice common areas and restaurant, dorms are OK, not enough bathrooms Events and trips planned but quite pricy and we realised that they charged a for easy rides, so take the cab by yourself

Hey Aurelie, thanks for your review! Our trips are made in old school, but new, american school bus or in our camper van, for a very good price. R$30,00 reais to go to 4 or 5 different beachs in the south or north of the island, R$35,00 reais for the big clubs at the north of the island, including vodka and coke, R$15,00 reais to Lagoa, all round trip. You arrive safe at the places, always on time, and don´t have to stress yourself with taxi drivers that try to drive you around and make money.


Nice hostel, the price is also good. The "party atmosphere" is annoying


Nice place


This hostel was awesome, staff were very helpful and friendly. Tours desk was a great bonus, and the restaurant was well priced and had a basic but good menu. Mosquito nets might be a good idea, other than that I would recommend anyone to stay here!!!!!
