I really needed some peace and quiet, and at this time of the year submarino was perfect for that! Good beds, nice breakfast, hammocks, a fire place, only 5 min walk from supermarket and bus stop and sweet and helpfull staff! For me it was perfect to relax!!


Nice hostel - really chilled. It's very quite now because it's off season but the staff are all so nice that they made up for it. Incredible breakfast with a toasty machine and fruit and cake and cereal. Cool garden area - not far from the nearest high street


A very good hostel.....nice staff and very helpful!


Good place to stay in Florianópolis. 10 minutes walking from good restaurantes, supermarkets and bars. Good environmental and nice staff. Not so far from the beach. From there you can get a bus or 45 minutes walking.


Unfortunately we were there during the Low season and the weather was far from ideal but the Hostel itself was great. Really comfortable beds and very clean. Lots of DVDs to keep us entertained during the rain and the staff were really helpful and welcoming.


The location may not be nearby the center, but easy connections by bus. Not the most space for 7 mix dorm, but the rooms had airco and good beds! Or like we did, rent one of the bikes for a cheepo price! Or rent one of the kayjak's for a cheepo price as well! We enjoyed the stay verry verry much, good prices for having fun, a lot of promotions about clubs etc. the place was clean, the staff was great and super helpfull with everything! One of the best on our list so far :) Keep it up!


Great atmosphere, delicious breakfast, friendly and helpful english speaking staff.


Submarino is a little out of the way. The directions give to walk there from the bus station say 'walk towards the bridge' but there is no way of knowing which way that is. The staff were great, the dorms were comfortable and the breakfast was the best I´d had had in a long while.


Very clean, nice kitchen, helpful staff. Location 10min walk from Lagoas centre. I would recommend this place!


Really cool hostel, with a good group of people and helpful staff. The hostel is right next to the lake and you can rent kayaks for next to nothing, as well as renting a board to go dune boarding, which is a 20 minute walk. Really good breakfast as well as lots of opportunities to go out at night, although clubs are quite expensive.


Very good atmosphere!! The hostel staff make you feel in a very beachy, party and family atmosphere!! All the guests enjoy the spirit that is shared by everybody. The breakfast is great, with fruits, banana cake, coffee, milk, more than i had been offered in other hostels! Very clean bathrooms, a lot of space to dry clothes, a lot of movies to choose from too! I reccomend it totally!!!

Definitely I love submarino hostel. Really nice staff, good location just 1 min walking to the lagoo. Perfect breakfast. Everything is clean. Good atmosphere. The best hostel for backpackers I've ever stayed at. Discounts for partys. Really comfortable beds....I can not say something bad...Thanks for all. I'll come back
