This hostel is amazing. Loveliest staff. Free surf & body board rental, wet suits, beach balls, rackets etc. Amazing view over the coast. A couple of minutes down to the beach. Good kitchen or 3 different dinner options for $25 R every evening. Great breakfast with different fruits, granola and things to make ham & cheese toasties. Stayed out of season and still had a wonderful time. Good bar area, organises transfers and discount to different nights out. Would go back at any given opportunity.
One of the best hostel I have been to in South America so far. Great view, great breakfast, cheap, close to beaches, heaps of activities to do and extremely friendly staff who is always willing to help with any enquiries. Highly recommended. Would love to stay a few more nights but so restricted to time.
Went there all by my self and made some awesome friends! Great staff, always trying to help you in anyway they can!! The only bad thing is that they don't have a snack bar o sell water and stuff 24/7. So if you want something to drink or eat and the bar its not open.. You'll must go to the town to buy it. Love it there!! And all came back for sure!
We stayed in the double room with the bathroom in early September and had a great time. The bed was on a high level so you can see the ocean and there's a balcony also. All the staff are very social which is great and the caipirinha's at the bar for everyone is a great way to meet others staying at the hostel. Easy to walk into town and the main beach. Tours organised daily if there's enough people interested and the weather is fine. Highly recommended!
This hostel definitely deserves its reputation as 2nd best hostel in South America. Staff is amazing, facilities are great, clean rooms, great atmosphere and the location is unbelievable. Only downside was that the hostel closes for the entire month August, meaning I had to leave. Would have liked to stay longer! Definitely recommend if you want to have a good time in Florianopolis. 10/10
Amazing hostel, fully deserving of its good reputation. I booked 7 nights and ended up staying 15. Great breakfasts, and you must try the big portions of awesome homely dinners from the chefs Laura and Mansuke. The staff are a real standout at this place, massive shout out to Thais and Mariella for always being ever so helpful and smiling all the time. If you find yourself in Florianópolis, stay at Barra Beach Club!
The hostel overlooked the beach and was in a good location. I had three very relaxing days. The hostel staff were amazing! Very friendly, knowledgeable and happy. I'd definitely come back.
Lovely hostel, amazing location, great views and breakfast!
Great place, excellent staff, wonderful views

Barrabeachclub was one of the best hostels I have stayed in. It had by far the best staff, and heaps of other travellers to meet. The direction were pretty spot on and you can't get lost! It's a long trip but totally worth it. You might be far from the center but there are daily activities that will take you around for a decent price. We went to different beaches, sightseeing and activities like sand boarding. I want to go back! Laundry was convenient and dinner available for a decent price
Absolutely amazing! One of the best hostels I've stayed in yet! Rooms we're clean, staff was incredibly friendly and so helpful, the dinners are the best meals ever! All in all such an unreal stay at barra I wôuld recommend to anyone!!

This hostel is AMAZING! The staff are so lovely, the hostel itself is perfect and Barra Beach is gorgeous. We had such a great time staying here. The staff always went out of their way to help us, including organising a boat party for our group of friends despite the fact that it was low season and their normal boat was under repair. I would love to go back. Cannot recommend highly enough! Also, free Caipirinhas in the evening and the most incredible Italian chef.
Great hostel. Quiet secluded location. Would stay again!
We ended up extending our stay by 3 nights. Beautiful ocean front view from our double room. Breakfast was delicious. Dinner was available each night for R$25 and really good value. Staff went above and beyond with anything we needed help with, especially when we had difficulties booking our departing flight. Really good facilities, ping pong/pool table, surf boards and wetsuits free to borrow. Overall really satisfied, the best one we've stayed at so far and would highly recommend.Bring cash :)
Loved it. Ocean views from the breakfast/bar area. Hostel is located in a small village with only pedestrian access so it was nice and quiet. Lockers under the beds were solid. As always, hot shower if you kept the water pressure low. Breakfast and kitchen were standard and good. Staff helped me with bus routes to go on to my next stop. Thanks!
