Great hostel! Staff were super friendly and helped us book a bus online,when that didn't work they called up and reserved us seats. Also gave us a free caipirinha on our first night despite being an hour late! Restaurant food was good and not too pricey. They had surf boards to rent, and beach toys you could borrow. The two dorm rooms we stayed in didn't have air conditioning but had plenty of big fans so the heat wasn't a problem. They even showed the English football live in HD!
Just one of the best hostels of Brazil. You'll get exactly what you deserve and not one bullet less. Da best free breakfast, cheap restaurant for lunch and kitchen to cook noodles for dinner. This is my second home. Party and beach all time. Thanks Junior, Livia and the staff.
Great location if you want to spend your time near mole beach.. But it's a bit far from everything else. There are buses that drop you outside the hostel. It's got a decent breakfast and the staff are very helpful and friendly. It's got a great pool too but there's lots of steps to climb from the accommodation up to the bar area.
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.

Fun and friendly hostel, only flag would be the horrible stairs!
Fun stay. Organised trips good fun. Rooms fine..could do with some AC though! Good breakfast with a superb view over lagoon. Helpful and friendly staff. Thanks!
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.
