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.
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.
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
Nice hostel, the price is also good. The "party atmosphere" is annoying
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!!!!!
Very well structured, the better are the schedules of parties and luxury tours. Hostel often recommend top

This is probably the most beautiful hostel that I have ever stayed at. The view is great but it comes with the price that it is far from downtown so you have to take a bus to do any shopping but there is a really nice beach within walking distance. The food at their restaurant was not too expensive and was pretty tasty. The only other complaint that I have is that we paid more for a 4 bed room but it had no view and was kind of hidden away. If I would have known I would have gone for a dorm room
In this hostel you are just a number and a wallet. They make u pay for everything, one morning there was no tea the guy at the bar told me if i wanted some i could pay for it. One girl, who stayed there one week, didnt get refund for the last night she cancelled even though she told it 48h before and the hostel was Full on that last day. They make u pay a lot for transfer to parties but when u are 4 a taxi is cheaper. The staff at the reception is nice, but not the one at the bar restaurant.
Amazing staff and very good vibes! Best food in Brazil, love it! I will definitely be back!
There was a shortage of (shared) bathrooms. Also, there was no wifi in the rooms, only in the common area.
Maybe the time for breakfast starts 30 minutes earlier could be nice for those want to enjoy the beach earlier. And maybe wi-fi zone to be expanded to room area.
Stayed here one night as the hostel I normally stay was fully booked.I was not disappointed as there was a great view over Lagoa Do Conceicao from the bar,good breakfast & I enjoyed the Pizza evening meal.As the rooms descend down the hill you will get fit climbing up & down the stairs so you shouldn"t stay here if climbing is a problem for you.Enjoyed the afternoon at popular surfing beach Mole about 10 mins walk down the hill.
