    The staff there is amazing! everyone is always up to help you and make you feel good in there. It´s really good for traveling alone since you can meet people on the (really good) BBQs they make, the swimming pool, and the ping-pong/pool table. Also, the location is really good. The neighborhood is nice and it has cool bars, restaurants and pubs really near. I met such amazing people there that made my trip in Florianopolis perfect. Totally recomended and when I visit again Florianopolis, I will totally stay there. Thank you so much guys!

    It would be nice to have one more shower

    Good people. Great location. Good social layout.

    Hugely unbalanced bed to bathroom ratio. A little tired. Breakfast limited given the price.

    A lot of international people, great staff and good place for socializing with hammocks. They have a small but nice pool and kayaks if you want to go to the Conceicao Lake. They also have washing and cleaning machines for your clothes and air conditioning in all rooms.

    It's an old house that became a hostel. Because of that, some stuff is old/broken/not properly working. For example, the mirror in the bathroom bellow the stair is broken and poorly fixed, the door is a little bit swollen (bellow the paper poster), the bathroom box in another bathroom is broken (they are using a plastic curtain in its place), etc. The glasses in the hostel are all made of plastic and have a really bad smell. Really! It's weird. They make cheap barbecues each Wednesdays and Saturdays, which are great for making new friends. The only problem is that it's too salty (everybody was saying that when I was there. I joined 3 barbecues and they were all too salty). Also, although I didn't joined the breakfast they offer I don't think it's worth it. It's mostly cornflakes, break, cheese & ham, milk, coffee and cakes for R$13. I've been to other hostels in Brazil were it was possible to eat eggs, fruits, juice, etc for about the same price. There are places near the hostel such as Emporio Mineiro offering breakfast for around R$20 where you can get eggs, omeletes and other stuff. If you are Brazilian, you can use your Vale Refeição in these other places too. They were supposed to stop music/partying/noise/talking at midnight but it's not so strictly and many days it lasted until 1a.m., making noise for people who was trying to sleep in the rooms. Even when they stopped the music, some people always stayed talking and disturbing who wants to sleep. It was not a problem for me because I like to socialize but if you like a quiet place this is not the hostel to go.

    The staffs are great here and the very close to the lake and the restaurants.

    A little bit far away from the beach.
