This place deserves every good review it gets! By far the best hostel I have stayed in Brazil. The view is breathtaking, staff actually make an effort to remember you, and the social atmosphere is unriveled. There was something organised every night I was there.

Best hostel I've ever stayed in! Amazing location with a great view, really social atmosphere but not a party hostel like the Wild Rovers etc... Staff do everything to help you out, free gear rentals, quality bar and delicious dinners!

Best hostel yet!! Breakfast was amazing, staff were super helpful, very clean and the beds were comfy. The meals you can get for dinner were incredible and the bar was fun every night. They also run great tours / nights out with no stress. We also did a surf lesson with the chef / bar man / surfing instructor and he was fantastic! No noise after pm and being off the road means no traffic sound either. Beach is less than a minute walk away!

Awesome hostel with a great atmosphere, fun day trips and social events, good food, and really fun people. Private beach is also really cool. Stayed in a 4 bed room and it was really cramped, but I didn't spend any time in there except to sleep so it was fine. I'd definitely stay here again.

Everything about the stay was fine, the only thing needing improvement is the wi-fi which is very poor.

Meant to stay in Floripa 2 nights, stayed a week thanks to Barra. Always booked out and for a good reason. Solo female traveler gets daunting, thanks to Barra family dinners (deliciously served in pineapple :P) I made friends instantly every night new people to go out with at breakfast over amazing paninis I'd meet new faces and make new plans for around the area. Now imagine a private beach 1 mins away, the whole hostel went down 2 nights bonfired, drank, played ball, and made merry. Best View!

One of those hostels you'll never forget. Incredible atmosphere made possible by a beach side cliff location, excellent friendly staff, numerous activities in and out of the hostel including massages, and a great crew of guests. The weather in florianopolis is garbage, a real tease of a beach town, but the vibes, food, and parties make it worth a visit. One main issue - the wifi is only at the reception and is essentially so poor it isnt internet at all.

The best hostel ever!!! The only way to describe this place, already planning to go back

Nice sociable (but not party) hostel. It's a bit away from the town but you can easily get a bus. The fact that it's remote means that it is quiet and you have a non-tourist beach at the door step. Unfortunately it rained the whole time I was there! Great if you like surfing and hanging Around hostels with other travellers. Good bar but closes at 11 which means you either go out then (planned activities every night) or you chill and go to sleep. Staff were absolutely amazing the whole time!

Amazing place. Staff is awesome and very friendly and location is perfect. Only thing that was a bit off was the internet which was going on and off and only available in certain areas. Other than that, everything else was incredible and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for some good time on the beach and meeting cool people from all over the world.

We stayed in Barra for 5 nights. The weather wasn't great but it was the perfect hostel to just chill out in. They have great facilities, including free use of wetsuits & surf boards, surf lessons, table tennis and pool table and it is literally located on a small beach so it feels as if you have a private beach on your doorstep. The kitchen is fully equipped, showers are good and good sized lockers in dorms. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Great bar serving good food at decent prices.

This is THE place to stay at in floripa. Perfect for solo travelers, incredible location, always activities to do. Extended my stay but had to spend two nights at a hostel next door because it was full for the weekend- no comparison. Definitely stay here
