Portunhol has more heart and soul than any hostel I've ever stayed at. It is the definition of vibe. The location is perfect and the staff is fantastic. The rooms are a bit tight and the place isn't brand new but the staff is constantly cleaning. I highly recommend to any backpacker who isn't the bourgeois type. 29 yo male 45+ countries probably 300+ hostels. Thanks Chris and the girls for everything.

The staff was amazing, very friendly, helped us a lot for information at every moment, during the day and also during the night. They served amazing caipirinhas and the system is working thanks to honesty to the backpackers. Maybe a little bit more security should be nice and the room but I was confident sleeping there or letting my staff during the day!

Very helpful and friendly staff. Two minutes walk from the beach which is very handy! Good breakfast. Bathrooms could be a little cleaner and showers more powerful but not too much of a problem. Very happy we came, could have stayed longer!!

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!

Hi! Thanks for the review! You didn't apreciate what people usualy love about Florianópolis. You take two buses or more but you pay only one tkt, that's an integration system to help the turists going around. We are 2 minutes walk from Barra da Lagoa Beach, no comments about its natural beauty. About the beds, we are always changing matresses, you could have told us. We were cleaning up our garden and trees. In Brazil there are bugs all around, specialy in a natural place. Cheers.
