Bedbugs in room númber one 6 bed dorm. Covered in bites. Confirmed by other people who got bites too !! When other girls told the staff about the bedbugs there was no a action or any respond. The hostel is really nice, great location but the bedbugs are really anoying.


We had a great time at Lagoa Hostel. Sergio really made it for us. Although the hostel is not right on a beach it is next to the lakes, it is central to everything and makes you get on a bus and explore the island.. It is really close to the bus terminal and you can get to most places for 2.9 reals. It is also close to the nightlife so you have the best of all worlds.


Serge is a legend. Had a great time and wish we could have stayed longer


People in the hostel are very helpful. The hostel organizes great tour around the island with discount prize (especially clubs in Jurere can be very expensive). The location is perfect and quite safe (still be careful as I understood that "safe" in Brazil is not the same as "safe" in Europe). In Florianopolis there are three main parts: the south (mostly nature, no party), the Lagoa (good combination between the two), the north (party...amazing but very expensive).

The staff here are so friendly! Always willing to help and offer advice on things to do. The hostel was a little quiet during our stay so we didn't really meet anyone else, but the staff were great to chat to all the same.


Amazing and knowledgeable staff. Not enough bathrooms when hostel is fully booked!! Breakfast is very good!! Bar in the hostel has reasonable prices. Guest kitchen is basic. Supermarket and town with all the bars 2 blocks away. Easy to get to from downtown and easy to find from the terminal in lagoa conceicao(tilag)


Great hostel, with amazing and very friendly and helpfull staff. Special thanks to Rafaell for all the help (thanks for the samba bands, surf spots and nice chats ) :) Definatelly would be back there. Thanks a million again
