Property Description

If you are looking for the perfect place to stay on the beautiful island of Florianopolis, look no more. Your search is over.

Surrounded by lush green gardens, the bamboo lined path leads you to our big wooden doors, straight through reception and onto our poolside patio. It snakes past our bar, yoga area, skate ramp, meditation space, hammocks, private beach area and straight onto the white sand of Barra Da Lagoa Beach. With big spacious rooms, incredible 24/7 hot showers, brand new extra-long beds (for taller people), individual lights and power points, giant private lockers, air conditioning in every room, cotton sheets, free bath towels, daily cleaning, wifi, a very comfortable lounge with big screen TV and PlayStation, ping-pong table, a fully equipped kitchen, 24 hour reception and security surveillance, and much much more!

We chose this property not only for its unique beauty but also for its location. The Search House is the only hostel in Barra da Lagoa with private access to the 9 km stretch of pristine beachfront. While our facility is like a magical oasis that you won’t want to leave, we are active people and we encourage our guests to take advantage of all this location has to offer. Whether you’re an experienced or beginner surfer, this beach has the right conditions for all.

As well as surfing, you have the opportunity to kayak, stand-up paddle board, snorkel, kitesurf, cycle, or skate on our custom built half-pipe. If you prefer a slower pace you can explore all the wonders of this magical island by foot, or take advantage of our dedicated yoga and meditation spaces, or simply relax by the pool or take in the sun while reading a book on our private beach area. By night – we have a fully equipped outdoor bar with a great sound system, and we know how to party! From pool parties to live concerts, we have your social schedule covered. We are located close to the central hub of Lagoa Da Conceição, where you have a wide selection of restaurants, bars and clubs. We also have connections with the best nightspots and can help arrange your night out with a direct shuttle service.

P.S. Think about booking a few extra days, because once you come here you might not want to leave. ;-)

    one of the best hostels i have ever stayed at. it felt more like a huge air bnb beach house with a bunch of friends rather than a hostel. everyone was super social and the hostel itself was super nice and felt like a home.

    Best hostel I've ever stayed in! Fantastic location, events going on all the time, very community-oriented, and big kitchen + breakfast. I won't stay anywhere else in Floripa after staying here. Staff was all fantastic and helpful with anything you'd need. I got a private room and it was very clean and had everything needed.

    Very Good

    1) Great dorms. 2) Well-equipped kitchen. 3) Spacious garden. 4) Easy to meet people. BUT 5) The volunteers aren't that friendly, apart from two exceptions and the Argentinian bartender who kindly helped me when one of volunteers, Lou, didn't know how to proceed with my payment and started accusing me of not having money in the bank! 'Call your bank', 'I am gonna have to pay for you' she said, just because she didn't know how to use the machine... I felt humiliated! Impatient & incompetent.
