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"

Mick Montesi

10 February 2009 Mick would recommend this property

Liked: An excellent hostel and a great value! Walking distance to the best nightlife in the area, though a 15 min bus-wait-walk to Mole beach. The staff and guests were the most friendly and interesting I have met. Great prices for what you get. Great facilities and clean bathrooms. Never waited for a shower. Organizes great dinners for 12R that are great; fun bar and a party vibe. 2 computers plus wifi and comfy cots. I had a lot of fun and it is the best deal on the island!

Customer review

05 January 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: We only gave the staff rating an average rating not because of the brother and sister owners (they are excellent to say the least) but the German girl from Berlin is the exact opposite......we give her a thumbs down...BAD rating. We could go on about individual stories about her but truth be told she is not the best person to put at the front desk welcoming new backpackers and giving help. She seemed to be the bad talk of the hostel. All else is wonderful at this hostel besides that wicked witch.

Rre Kunene

07 April 2008 Rre would recommend this property

Liked: Tucano House was an amazing place to stay. We had a wonderful time during our stay and I must say, Tucano house was the highlight of our time in Brazil. The Island and the beaches in Floripa were without comparison, and Tucano was the icing on the cake. Friendly staff, amazing accommodations, family like atmosphere, all young people, safe area, plenty to do, great bars and clubs (make sure you check out Sunday night Samba!!), all this made for an amazing finale to an awesome trip to Brazil. If you go to Brazil you have to visit Floripa, and you stay in Floripa, it better be at Tucano!!
