Good hostel, friendly staff and they have a lot of information about activities day and night that you can attend. Location is ok, it's only ten mins bus from the beach but the buses in Florianopolis are so infrequent, average 20 min but sometimes 30 min apart, so it can still take ages to get anywhere. Regular breakfast, good pool. Would stay here again.

The best choice you can do when visiting Florianopolis. Always clean, perfect location near the most beautiful beaches on the island. Hostel is always clean, breakfast includes cakes, fruits, juices. Good place just to chill, they have a pool, always clean and hamacks. Instead of two nights booked, we stayed five. 100% recommended.

Thee atmosphere is laid back and welcoming. Sometimes the music was good, but other times it was EDM, which doesn’t fit with the vibe of this hostel at all. Other than that, the atmosphere was good. Location and wifi were great. But 4p dorm I stayed in was very small. Drawers/shelfs/hooks would be good! The staff was all really friendly and helpful. There was always someone by the desk, and the woman who cleans and makes breakfast seemed very nice and thorough. I'd gladly come again!

No complaints... actually a very great hostel. I spent 4 nights here & enjoyed my stay a lot. Everything is clean, the wifi works all over the hostel, the breakfast is great too, the beds are comfy, & the staff is nice and always willing to help you if you have any questions. For a good cheap buffet just cross the bridge and it's on the right past a wall of street art.

I did like the hostel very much. The atmosphere was very kindly and the staff friendly. I have met a lot nice people there. The caipirinha is very good. Only one shower for 12 people, was quite often occupied.

Hammocks on the balcony are a nice way to see out the rain. Breakfast was pretty standard (bread,ham,cheese,fruit). Hostel was clean and facilities good. Nice location.

The stuff is really good, people were really friendly and the hostel is near the terminal, really happy with it had a great time! They sell drinks but the prices are really cheap, the hostel have a lot of activities and the stuff is open to help you on anything you need.

The only thing that this place lacks is atmosphere. The barman and owner could do a bit more to get the party going- everything else was great. Spotless with great facilities- just not as fun as the other hostels we stayed in in Floripa.

Geckos is very close to Mole beach.Beds are good though 4 female room is tiny and difficult to get on to top bed. Kitchen is good, place is being cleaned from sand all day. Good tours and available activities. Had a nice stay, recommended.

Loved it. Especially the breakfast was awesome! Loved the toast! And maybe the next one who brings a big Danish flag for their collection will get a discount - I didn't have one ;)
