Property Description

Welcome to Duque Hostel, a hostel designed for young travellers that want to enjoy the beach, go surfing and meet people from all over the world. Located only 100 meters from the beach of Barra da Lagoa, 100 meters from Projeto Tamar (a reserve of sea turtles that’s the main attraction from Barra) and 200 meters from downtown. Our facilities include bedrooms with air conditioner, wi-fi in the whole hostel, living room with Netflix, a ping pong table, swimming pool, hammocks and a sushi bar.
We’re an Argentine and Brazilian family that used to stay at hostels all over the world and now we’re living the dream of having our own! As owners, we’re always at the hostel making sure you have the time of your lives and come visit us again. In our family we have two dogs, Duque, the hostel mascot, a very docile dog that we’ve adopted many years ago when we arrived in Florianópolis, and Urso, a super friendly dog that loves to be petted. If you like animals, you can always take them to the beach and play with them.
Even without leaving the hostel, we offer you a lot of entertainment. At night our sushi-bar makes the best food and drinks of the city and, during the summer, we hold many events.
We’re Argentinians and love to grill, so several times a week we light the barbecue and cook for our guests (always remembering the vegetarians as well!). The hostel also has a fully equipped kitchen if you prefer making your own food.
We have a total of eight showers and ten toilets so you don’t have to waste your time waiting in line, and all bedrooms have air conditioning, individual lockers and confortable beds so you can rest and enjoy your days to the maximum.
We speak English, Portuguese and Spanish and are always available for whatever you guys need. Come have an amazing time with us and explore this beautiful island! View House Rules

    Really loved duque hostel! The vibe is great- it’s not a corporate atmosphere and feels closer to a traditional hostel mixed with Brazilian home. I love the staff and dogs. I like that they made breakfast every morning because it brings folks together. The location is amazing- I love being close to the beach and the nice hiking I fell asleep in the hammock so many times and am happy there was a pool I extended my stay here for many nights. I recommend this place for a solo traveler

    Stayed here for two nights, was absolutely lovely, sadly the trip had to come to an end after one of the 5 people I was travelling with acted without thought. Regardless the time we spent here was wonderful, lovely atmosphere.

    I travel alone and I am very shy, the people at the hostel made me feel like a family very quickly. If you’r traveling alone, the best option, I recommend it. Duke and urso, the best dogs in the world.

    This place is dope! Great ambiance, love hostels like this where time just ceases to exist, you don’t even have to leave, there’s a bar and a sushi chef and dogs and a hot owner. The beach is also a stones throw and there’s a grocery store on the same block. Will be going back, this time hopefully for longer!

    I loved! I am doing a trip around the world and I travel alone, in the hostel I found people who quickly included me in their activities. The staff is always ready to help you. Pablo's burgers and Guada's sushi are the best. Their dogs are the most lovely thing in the world, I am already missing them. The rooms and bathrooms always clean, and the pool always ready to use.

    The hostel is amazing location to the beach. Clean and staff were friendly. As with the whole country english isn't used but some staff know it. There's not really any atmosphere here but the night life in Barra doesn't exist at all. Was a quick cheap Uber to Lagoa where there was lots happening at night if you wanted. Overall it's a great place with incredible location.

    Brand new hostel had no atmosphere and although it looks nice on outside, rooms are very basic, I would say it was overpriced considering competing hostels are better and cheaper in the area. The staff are pretty nice and easy going though.
