    Really mellow, perfectly located hostel. As a surfer it’s perfect. Only a five minute walk down the hill to Praia Mole, which I think is the most consistent beach break on the island. Great staff, great atmosphere in the bar upstairs. Would definitely recommend.

    Great location, perfect spot for sightseeing as most promotional pictures show. Kind of uncomfortable for going to the beach as its located uphill across the road. If planning to go surfing please note you'll be 5' downhill to Praia Mole and 20' walk to Joaquina. Breakfast is OK, the hostel owns a pub with craft beer and really good food.

    Unfortunately, the address of the location is not correct in Google Maps. Moreover, there was no empty bed when we arrived at 8pm and it took us some time to find out, which bed we can use. The next day some new people arrived and they had the same struggle. This was very uncomfortable! The breakfast was fine, but please be aware that at exactly 10am they put it away even you want one more bread/ fruit,...

    majority of rooms are located down lots of stairs which wasn't great with luggage and rain. we were put in a room in a shack that smelled of urine, didn't have air conditioning or curtains, and a shower full of hair. after complaining the staff (esp. Paulinha) were really great in trying to help but we felt we couldn't stay there for any longer so changed hostels. location is fine (10-15mins from the lagoa) but whole hostel is quite dingy in comparison to others in Floripa.

    This hostel is in a state of neglect. The small kitchen ( the hostel has probably over 100 beds) only has one old fridge and it was not working!!! So, there was no fridge at all. Most staff comes from Argentina and some are very unfriendly like the guy in the bar. The breakfast is the worst I had in Florianopolis. Staff pick 2 think pieces of cheese and ham and one bread, one banana and that's it. Don't be fooled by the great pics. There is only one great staff member worth mentioning: Clara.
