Fantastic hostel with unbelievable beachside location. Great for chilling out but not if you want to party in florianopolis. Would recommend staying here during week and somewhere like the tucano at the weekend so youre in the centre

Definetely one of the best, if not the best hostel I've ever stayed. Really really nice and helpful staff and also the breakfast was so nice with fresh fruit and juice. Also you had a really nice view on the beach and ocean from the hostel balcony. It's not too close to the centre though, but it' s easy too reach by bus. I can only recommend it to everybody who wants to have a good time, lay on the beach or try to surf. P.s. you can also rent surf boards from the hostel.

Fantastic hostel overlooking the beach.. Cooked hot sandwiches and fruit for breakfast, free surfboards and good WiFi connections! Would definitely recommend!

Tough to put into words how amazing this hostel is. I decided to stay an additional 2 weeks after my initial booking. Not only does the hostel have an ideal location with perfect views and beach access, but the staff and mgt. really goes out of its way to ensure that guests have a fun and stress-free time. You can party every night or spend 3 days in a hammock and feel right at home. Finally (and most importantly), this hostel tends to attract really cool, friendly, and interesting people.

The only negative point was about the taxi. You have to order 24 hours in advance and I didn't know that, there were a small signal in the wall but I didn't notice it. Maybe you could arrange more taxis to help you in the transport to the airport.

The location of this hostel is awesome! The hostel itself is very nice aswel, very clean (!) and the staff is really friendly and helpfull! They cook dinner in the evening, which isn't too expensive, it's good food and above all makes it very easy to meet people when you are travelling by yourself. In short one of the best hostels I've been to.

This is a great hostel in Barra. It's close to both beaches in the area, and has really good rentals for equipment. The atmosphere is good with a free caiprinha and optional group dinners that are delicious. My only complaint is that the wifi is pretty poor. It only works in one area of the hostel and it becomes pretty slow because everyone is crowded in that area.

Great hostel. Location is great if you like being close to the beach, Literally 1 main walk if that! Possibly if you wanted to go put every night you might be better staying in lago de conceicao but the buses are easy and cheap and run even at night. Definitely worth getting the food they serve in an evening, its really good and great value

Great hostel in a lovely location. The staff are all really nice and the dinners are great. One negative was avoid the company they use for the transfer bus to P12 and just make your own way there in a taxi. Took close to 3 hours and was terribly organised. This isn't the hostel though but an outside company.

One of the best hostels in south america. Everything is reunited in this hostel: perfect location right on the beach, huge breakfast, lot of amenities (they rent for free surfboards, snorkelling equipment...), staff is helpful and the everyday diners are amazing! An excellent hostel!

I loved Barra Beach Club. The beach front is literally there. You feel like you have your own private beach. The staff are awesome. The bar provides free caprihinas every night from 7-7.30. The chef makes amazing meals too. As a solo traveller I felt it was easy to make new friends here. I could stay here forever!!

This hostel is amazing. Dinners cooked everynight for a small price, fantastic activities organised everyday and the location is better than a 5 star hotel. Highly recommend this hostel!

One word... PARADISE! This place is amazing. Staff are super friendly and helpful, location is amazing - nice and quieter being around the hill from town, cleaners seem to work nonstop so rooms , bathrooms and common areas are all ways nice to be in. Views are spectacular and the use of equipment and kitchen is really handy especially if u like surfing and body boarding.....or even a bit of bat and ball. Make sure you are super nice to ale if u stay here, he is a legend (and everyone else too)

The location is perfect, just 150m from city center and main beach and 25m from isolated quiet beach far from noisy traffic. The staff is the nicest we ever met, they all speak great English. The hostel offers free surfing equipment and other beach toys. Breakfast is basic but the hostel also offers dinner cooked by a lovely Italian chef in only 15-17 BR$ per person. We had a great 7 nights stay, any problem was quickly and well treated. Although slightly expensive it is strongly recommended!

First of all the food was great! Vegetarian options were delicious and cheap. It was really clean considering the amount of people staying. Most of the staff were friendly. Location is great with two beaches close but the only problem is going to Lagoa Conceacio at night if you like going out.There is no taxi and bus just dont stop sometimes... This was the best place I stayed in my Brazil trip..Definitely recommend...
