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.


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!
