I really enjoyed spending Carnaval at this hostel, people is super friendly and the way in which is built (in the ladder of a hill) makes it very safe and with an awesome view. The only -not good- surprise is that everything paid with credit card at the hostel has a 6% overcharge. I didn't know that in advance (I don't know if that was explicit). In my case, only with the payment of my bed for the 7 days I could have saved $20 bucks b bringing cash.

Amazing hostel! Had a great time here. Second time staying here and can confirm it is 1 of the best I've stayed in in Brazil! Great to have such large lockers in dorm rooms. Organised trips daily & nights out is great way to meet people and bar has a fantastic atmosphere. Close to the decent nightlife and really near the beach (Praia de Mole). Staff v helpful/friendly, clean hostel & great breakfast/food available, great facilities & beach equipment available to borrow. Will definitely return :)

One of biggest hostels I've ever stayed in, capacity of 100 people. Meant there were loads of interesting people around to meet, but might have preferred it to be slightly smaller to create a more intimate community. Staff is super friendly, and love the ajoining bar for the music and their local Elemental beers. Beautiful location atop a hill overlooking the Lagoa, and an easy walk to lots of great restaurants on Av. das Rendeiras and nearby bars.

Definite party hostel had a lot of fun here and met some great people. Great bar staff, organised day/evening events, lots on offer! So so easy to spend money here everyone has bar tabs!! Downsides would be 1) the kitchen... Reaaaally not a place you'd want to cook your own food. And 2) reception offer to book your buses for you, we were told our bus had been booked to Floripa by reception, turned up at the station to have no tickets at all and no spaces available

This is an amazing hostel! Really cool and helpful staff. Great location very close to Mole beach and brilliant atmosphere, food and very clean with lots of activities organised every day/night. I can't recommend this place highly enough!

Pros: ATMOSPHERE! Such a great party hostel. We initially booked for 2 nights and ended up staying for 5! Made some great friends and had some crazy nights. Staff are great, funny little itialian guy comes around every arvo and gets you to sign up for parties. Make sure you go on the party bus! Breakfast is good, lunch is great value for money and dinner burgers and pizzas are good too. Close to both the beach and to the lagoon. Must stay here if you are coming to Florianopolis!

Great party hostel, brilliant place to meet people. The food is very good and the staff friendly! They organise an event every night, I would highly recommend going to the pool party and take the party bus!!! Philipo is the mannnn! The location is good for a walk to the beach, however walking into town takes a little longer but there is a bus stop just outside the hostel.

Great location on a hill overlooking the lake, and a short walk to the beach. The staff were amazing and really make the diference. Great party hostel - you *will* have fun! Only complaint is all the stairs to get to the rooms, but exercise is important.

Loved this hostel. Breakfast is great, rooms are okay but serve their purpose, staff and fantastic and the hostel organise so many day trips, nights out and transport to and from places for you. Met more people staying here for 5 nights then I have for my entire 3 month trip so far. Definitely would recommend it!

Sunset is one of the best hostels we stayed at in Brazil, from the moment we arrived the staff really set the bar with their excellent service and helpfulness. The restaurant makes incredible food, for both lunch and dinner which is really affordable. The free caipirinhas each night is such an added bonus to view the incredible view for sunset. The rooms are very spacious and the beds comfortable. Definitely a huge recommendation if going to the beautiful florianopolis.

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.

Decided to cancel my reservation after visiting their bar. not s single toilet was flashing and I was told it's the same issue all over property.

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!
