Liked: superclose to the beach

Disliked: the place is run by potheads. that reflects the whole atmosphere.they start already before breakfast to cut the pot and distibute it freely.there are tons of people sleeping every night in all the common area, who have no room of their own. the room was a dirty piece of hellhole.we left early.i got a severe skin infection from the filthy matress. do i need to say more?

Liked: The location at the beach is very nice. The small fishing community of Barra Lagoa was very quiet during my stay, good for a relaxed time. And still there is plenty to do. The staff is very helpful, speaks good english, friendly atmosphere. The hammocks are great.

Disliked: The 4bed dorm is really small and simple but I slept very good. There are only 2 bathrooms and during my stay one of them and the kitchen did not have water. But it was not crowded in the hostel so it was okay. The cleanliness is okay, but not really great.

Liked: Excellent location for doing nothing and just hanging out at the beach. The owners are very relaxed and organised, they are extremely friendly and make you feel at home. The breakfast is good with a large variety of fruit, rye bread, ham & cheese, good coffee etc. The common areas are large. Sometimes they put on a BBQ for a small price and it is excellent.

Disliked: They need to improve on their cleaning.

Liked: Portunhol has a relaxed and friendly environment. Chris and the rest of the staff are always willing to chat or give you suggestions on what to do in Floripa. They have a beer fridge that is always stocked with ICE cold beers for your enjoyment at ANY time. Very important when in Brazil. The dinners were incredible. No joke. Robert, the Chileian chef, can cook a mean paella, curry and lasagna. And thats just what he cooked during my 3 nights! Close to the beach. Access to other beaches and Centro da Lagoa is easy by bus.
