Liked: This is one of the most luxurious hostels I've ever been to. It's almost unbelievable that you can pay 40R a night to get a view like you do. Great breakfast, incredible facilities. Zealous staff. Lunch buffet is class.

Disliked: Kitchen could use some work (lots of utensils are missing). Not many nightlife options because hostel is so far away from everything (hostel organizes transfers, but you have to conform to their schedule). Unfortunately this hostel seems to attract a lot of loudmouth British/Australian bro-types, so if you're not into that, you probably won't like it.

Liked: The Staff is probably the best resource of the hostel except Livia,this girl must be more relaxed and more helpfull with the people as her collegues do.In general everybody was so helpfull and so nice.

Disliked: The hostel is an amazing structure but it could be much better.some rooms are old and look so and so.The kitchen could be offer more opcions of food in the night.

Liked: Excellent spot overlooking the bay, next to the beach. Access to the city is a bit time-consuming.

Liked: If you come to Floripa you must stay here! The amazing location, awesome staff and fun vibe turned our 2 day stay into over 2 weeks! The hostel is within walking distance to several wonderful beaches as well as bars and the lagoon. Whether there are ten guests or 50 there is always something going on at backpackers- theme parties, trivia, day trips around the island and even a party bus to take everyone out at night. The property is really well maintained and looks more like a hotel than a hostel. They have everything from private rooms to large dorms as well as a tv/living room area, restaurant and bar. The staff is a fantastic mix of locals and travelers who supply popcorn for futbol games and suggestions for the best bars. This is one hostel you definitely don’t want to miss- thanks for all the memories!

Liked: Its a cool hostel,it´s reputation for being a party hostel is true, but its still pretty chilled during the day. They are very helpful and have lots going on. Close to the beach and for trips to various parts of the island. Recommended.

Disliked: The Bathrooms! Not enough for the amount of people and they get messed up very quickly - mainly due to the abuse by others. Leave it how you´d like to find it people!!

Liked: The staff is friendly. The room's view are really nice and the hostel is close of the beach.

Disliked: the cleaning of the rooms are not performed very well (there's a lot of dirt under beds and other furniture). The staff responsible for cleaning that does not respect the host is sleeping, talking on high volume inside the rooms!
