Great hostel, owner is onsite most of the time to make sure everything is running smoothly, possibly the cleanest hostel I've stayed in, social bar area with a small pool to cool off in after a day of hiking around the falls. Staff were awesome, thanks!

Sunset is a heavyweight champ in the hostel circuit. 5 min walk to the beach, facilities are all there as advertised, good security. Really social layout and a great atmosphere throughout the place. Lots of activities during the day and the best party bus on the island at night. Don't want to party? Just chill on the deck and enjoy the view. Also have boards for hire if you're a surfer and haven't brought a stick with you. Highly recommend!

Great place to start our Florianopolis experience, staff were super friendly, there's a nice little bar area and pool table at the back of the hostel that is the perfect place to meet people. The location is super central if you're looking for easy access to shops, bars, clubs etc and the public bus terminal is right around the corner and will take you to the beach for R$3. Nice job Lagoa!

Great hostel, the location is perfect, 5 min walk from the Greyhound bus, gondola, groceries and liquor store. I was traveling solo but met heaps of awesome crew here, there's a cosy communal kitchen area where we cooked meals together, had a beer or two and became fast friends. Staff are rad, they can hook you up with discounted ski/board hire and lift passes and will help you out with whatever else you need. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, no issues there, just rock up and enjoy yourself.

Very clean and orderly, feels like a hotel vs. hostel, however this comes at the cost of feeling a bit clinical. If you value cleanliness, being close to the train and great security I would definitely recommend it, however if you're looking for good vibes and fun times you may not find them here, it's a little frosty.

The hostel bar makes this place, perfect spot to have a beer and meet your neighbours. Myself and a friend shared a private twin share room, the bathroom was separate but right next door and there were never any issues with sharing. There's a tour desk to bok your booze cruise etc and the staff were happy to help with any questions. I would stay here again.

Clean and tidy, friendly staff and great location near Patpong party district and sky train station. I met 3 awesome girls here and had a fun night before heading down to the islands. Great stop-over spot.
