Beautiful place, full of nature and with an AWESOME view !!!! Gracias!


Great views. No matter where I went - the room, the kitchen, the bar - I had the pleasure to see the beautiful "Lagoa da Conceição" or the cool "Praia Mole" beach during the day. The sunrise and the sunset made these days the ones I will never forget. Friendly and efficient staff. Located in the best possible location - 5 minutes to the "centrinho da lagoa" - restaurants, bars and shops. Afforddable prices and beautiful people.

What we liked is the view. What we did not like: Dspite two emails, we did not get an airport pickup, although the hostel advertises this service. We did not even get a response to our mails and were simply forgotten. For any additional service, the hostel charges high amounts of money. More expensive than a cab. Beer more expensive than at the beach bar. The toilet and shower were disgusting. We have had several cockroaches, spiders and other animals running in our room. Welcome to the Jungle.

This place is freakin awesome. The staff are awesome and helpful, the atmosphere was really chill and the view is priceless. Definitely worth having a stay here if you at Floripa.


The hostel was very average. Facilitywise it has got everything you need, but the staff does not really seem to feel responsible for anything. Sometimes, the kitchen and the bathrooms were quite shabby. The staff was nice, but also quite a bit lazy. There were always things to do, but noone noticed it and so it stayed a bit dirty. Nevertheless, the location is amazing, the view is great and it is very closed to one of the most beautiful beaches of south brazil.

Hi Guys. Actually during this period the water suply went off in the entire neighbourhood, and for sure this have influenced the cleaning and the comfort of the hostel. We apologize for that but was something beyond our control. Add to that the fact that the manager was not in town. We always strive to give our guests the best possible service and to get better everyday. Thank you!
