One of the best hostel´s I have been to. View of the beach, free hire of beach gear (surf board, etc), decent rooms and great breakfast. For 20 to 25 reals you can eat a really good meal at night, cooked by the chef, plus the drinks are a decent size and really tasty! Dont miss out!

Incredible location. Overlooking the beach. It's a resort view in a hostel. Meals cooked by the chef were also fantastic. They don't let you bring in your own drinks which is a bit of a pain as the place is on the pricy side. Definitely worth staying here a few days to relax. Note that there is no air con in the rooms despite them advertising having ac.

Staff were helpful and very friendly. Facilities in the hostel were great - very comfortable beds abd Powerpoints abundant and a good free breakfast. Atmosphere was good. Only thing that would be better was if there was wifi in the rooms.

They have everything - its a big hostel, but it feels like a small one since you can talk with the recepcionists as a friend, and everyone looks like one big crew. The promoter Two argentinan receptionists gave me a lot of attention, once you ask something they give you everything, even more thank you ask!! And another guy who even doesnt work there anymore too. The best bar with a view I have seen in floripa! All looks like a resort on the forest, the threes, and with a private beach. INCREDIBL

This is one of the best hostels I have stayed at. It's located right on a small-isolated beach, and a 5 minute walk to a large busy beach with good surfing. The staff are excellent and make you feel at home. The dinners at the hostel are fantastic. The hostel is a bit on the small side, but it makes it easy to meet everyone there. The open-air bar is very chill with music, food, and drinks.

After travelling for almost a year, I definitely can say Barra Beach Club was the best hostel I've ever stayed! All the facilities are great and they even offer you surfboard or snorkeling gear rental for free. The big difference in this hostel is the staff: they are all nice and friendly, always keen to sort things out, arrange party tickets or get along. A huge thanks specially to Ale, Maru and Gabriel! Looking forward to see you guys again at BBC for holidays!

All in all a nice hostel. There were a few things we didnt like though. For example, the bar closes at 11pm and dinner is served until 9pm.. thats not american times! Plus, all the place is very humid and we saw plenty of cockroaches. But its clean in general. The staff didnt propose any group activities, but was very nice.

One of the best hostels in the world! The staff are brilliant and make sure you have the best stay. There are daytime & nightlife activities organised, free surfboards & bodyboards available to use from the hostel. Location is amazing, overlooking the beach of Barra de Lagoa. Free daily caipirinha at the bar and great food !! Its a really sociable hostel and you meet great people from all over the world. If you go to Florianopolis, stay here. I'm going back next year for sure !!!

My stay was beyond my expectations. The hostel is really like a "beach club" and every morning you wake up to the sound of waves of the almost private beach just in front. Very helpful staff, great breakfast in the bar with a breathtaking view of the beach. There are surf boards available free of charge and a free caipirinha everynight. Life can´t get much better than this! Just remember to bring repelent and make sure to bring enough cash as the clostest atm is only at Lagoa ( a bit far);

This hostel is amazing. As soon as you arrive there youcan see the sea in front of you. Just few steps down and then you are on the beach. The breakfast is perfect! Including: diferent types of bread, coffee, tea, milk, juices, ham and cheese, tomato, dulce de leche, jam and fruits! The localization is perfect, near the center of Barra da Lagoa Beach. During high season you can face traffic to go to the other beaches, but it´s worth!

This was my first ever hostel, and I was pleasantly surprised! We had a 4 bed dorm between 3 of us, it was cleaned daily and was ok in size. Only downfall was they need air con! The hostel had an amazing view! It was minutes walk to the beech and local town, for the low cost I thought this place was excellent and would definitely go again!

The hostel is well built with a fantastic view of the beach from most cabins. Each cabin/ house has two or three rooms with bunk beds. The staff working here is by far some of the best I have encountered on my travels. The rooms and bathrooms are cleaned regularly and well. Avoid the Boat tour. It's isn't worth a 100 reals at all unless they reinstate the all you can drink Caipi's. Get to know Ale. Very awesome dude who works there.
