    Loved it. The location is outstanding with their balcony with a great view of the lagoon. Stay close to the beaches, like walking distances. And a lot of restaurants, bars and parties close. The staff is super attentive and helpful, and they are all good vibes. Probably going back there, Floripa is just awesome and with these people is even better.

    Great hostel in a great location with great people! I really enjoyed my stay there. It is walking distance to a few of the beaches and has a great terrace with a view of the lake. The staff are super friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay there again! Bedrooms and bathrooms are clean, and beds are comfortable.

    Great hostel, amazing location, sociable vibe around the place and in the bar. I came here as a solo female and had no problem meeting people and making new friends here. The view from the bar is beautiful! The staff are really friendly and helpful. I extended my stay at short notice and they were super accomodating. Large lockers available which I used but somebody still stole my towel (!) Annoying but nothing I can do about that. I've recommended Pinguins to friends and would stay here again.

    Great hostel. Really enjoyed it. It is not on the beach, but it is on a large lagoon. There are so many restaurants nearby. The nearest ATM is a few kilometers away. The location is very central on Ilha de Santa Catarina, so you have easy access to beaches in the north and south. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They gave us numerous recommendations. It was also helpful that many of the staff spoke English. We enjoyed our stay and recommend this hostel.

    Amazing location right on the lake and in walking distance to both the beaches and the local town area. Solid half an hour walk to an ATM so be aware of that.

    We had such a good time at this hostel. The staff were awesome and we did quite a few day activities with them which was super fun. The hostel was not as clean as it could be, however we were in a 12bed mixed dorm so maybe to be expected. The facilities are awesome and a bar with very cheap drinks and best view. I would totally recommend staying here!!

    I wanted to like this hostel more, but it could have been a lot better. They make stupid mistakes that ends up holding them back in the long run.

    Good little hostel for basics, kitchen was well supplied- the room had air conditioning but this didn't work whilst we were there. The major drawbacks were the lack of bathrooms (meant you were always waiting, or knew you were keeping others waiting) and felt uncomfortable in the communal areas as, although the hostel hosted parties, it was almost felt like they were hosting parties you weren't invited to. Therefore in terms of value for money, it could be better- expensive for what you get.

    I found the atmosphere at this hostel awful. They really are lacking in some department - it almost seemed as if 3/4 of the people at the bar were there not because they were staying, but members of staff trying to muster a good atmosphere. The facilities at this hostel are average and I think making people pay in cash is just stupid with the nearest ATM being a good half hour away. This is one of the worst hostels we stayed at in Latin America.
