We loved our stay at Garapuvu. It is a great hostel with extremely friendly staff who went out of their way to help us with our stay in Florianopolis. The room was comfortable, clean and the breakfast was good too. We loved chilling out in the hammocks and we loved their dog, Montagne :-) The beach is slightly further away than we initially thought but an easy bus ride away so no worries there. We had a great time!

The Staff was really hepful, the house is good/wide, and the rooms very clean. I just didn't like of the bathrooms. They were very small and not so clean.

Marissa was a great host. Very welcoming, knowledgeable and patient with us (we knew next to no Portuguese. Hostel was one of the best we have experienced so far during our dream. Clean, spaceous and fully equipped. The pool was a nice touch considering the hot weather! Thanks very much for our stay Marissa and Viktor!


really relaxing hostel , nice front yard with some trees and hammocks and stuff ,i enjoyed my stay there


Receptive staff, comfortable rooms and lots of pros. For both party lovers (it's near Lagoa da Conceição bars) and for couples seeking good moments :) Definitely, a place to return!!


Garapuvu Hostel is a good option to stay just near Lago de Conceicao. Clean rooms, good atmosphere, really friendly staff, pool, barbecue part and snooker. The only thing is that it is not in Lagoa de Conceicao Centre, but there is a bus going on to the village at every time. If you have car, or if you want to be a little bit more out of de centre town, is the perfect hostel.
