Best hostel of my trip, only down side was no card facility.
This place was amazing.... The staff were like your best mates and made you feel really at home. This is not a "posh" hostel.... it's a proper "hostel" and that's why it's so great. Everyone there was so friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble. I cannot recommend this place highly enough if you want to chill. Play some pool, enjoy the beach, lay in a hammock and generally feel at home.
Great place to stay as the lovely staff makes you feel very welcome, making it kind of a second home. It has a relaxed atmosphere, plenty of opportunity to get even more relaxed, or enjoy a Caipirinha at the bar.
Florianopolis is a difficult city to move around, so choose your base camp wisely: close to the beach, to the lake, city center? This hostel was not close to anything special. In walking distance to Praia da Barra, but that's not a nice beach. So to everything else you need to take one or two buses. The facilities are also poir. Beds aren't comfi, random stuff lying around everywhere in the backyard, we found a cockroach in our room. What saves it is the staff: super friendly and helpful!
