Michael Shawe thinks…

"The staff there are all ridiculously attractive. It's absurd. The food was good when they cooked. The staff was generally friendly. Falling in love with them every day was an added bonus. :D"

Liked: it was a really sociable hostel and very easy to meet other travellers. They ran excursions to lots of places on the island which was great as some of them are quite difficult to get to otherwise. the cocktails are AMAZING!!! as is the dinners they put on and cheap compared to going out for dinner! there are lockers under your bed and in the reception area and a kitchen for use if you like. I really enjoyed my time here (i stayed longer than i expected!!) and really recommend it to other travellers

Disliked: nothing!

Liked: Great atmosphere, excellent breakfast & dinners. Florianopolis is amazing to visit. Friendly vibe

Disliked: Dorms were a bit expensive for what was provided - ie threadbare sheets, extra beds crammed in, some bunks had to share a locker. However - it is high season and I would still definitely recommend the hostel.
