Really amazing hostel....beautiful view, great location and amazing food. The staff are really nice, they have mopeds, bicycles and beach equipment for you to hire out and 10 minute walk to the beach. There is a restaurant which has amazing food and decently priced...also the organised parties are not bad, but probably more fun if you're under 25...

Just checked out from there - really great place. First I stayed in some 4-star hotel Eco Village just nearby but decided to move here being warmly invited by hostel staff. Contrary to previous review - everything worked well. Im 41 y.o. and it is my first staying in hostel since probably 1993 or 1994. But I completely changed my...

Good hostel overall! We had a few problems with the energy, showers were not working, and the wifi never works, but the staff is so friendly and I had such a good time that this didn't bother me at all. Very nice that they have a restaurant inside the hostel, lunch buffet is good and in a reasonable price. Very...

Can not recommend this hostel highly enough. I spent almost 2 weeks here and struggled to leave. The staff were super friendly, the restaurant food (buffet or off thr menu) was some of the best I have tried in brazil for the price. The social area is perfect for meeting people and the way the hostel organises day trips and...

Stayed for several nights and everyday there was amazing. The staff where great and got on with all the travellers. The lunch buffet was amazing and the bbq they do some nights are fantastic. The best view in Floripa with a fantastic location. Well worth a visit!

I stayed at Backpacker's Sunset prior to Carnaval, so it wasn't too busy at the hostel. I stayed in a 5-person dorm which was full for 2 days, and had only 3 people including myself for the last 2 days. The grounds are beautiful! There are amazing views of the lake. I unfortunately didn't see a sunset due to overcast...

It has an excellent reputation (the pool and dorm rooms are fine, and lunch buffet is great) BUT I cannot recommend this place - there are so many better hostels nearby, don't waste your time here!! Staff are so unhelpful and negative, to list a few things: -The bartenders ignored us, and one told us not to eat dinner at...

I had a nice relaxed stay at backpackers sunset. The staff are very nice and welcoming. They also go a long way to accommodate their guests. I stayed in a private room which was very tiny but had room for a double bed and my bags. Only one power socket though so I had to unplug the fan if I...

Even though i was out of luck with the surf the week I stayed there, the location is excellent for the beaches as it's on the top of the hill - go left for one beach and right for another - easy walking distance with a board. The bus stop is also directly out the front or it's a nice...

I don´t have any clue how many times I´ve been to this hostel. A friend recommended me and I went there by myself for a festival and had the best time ever. It has really common areas so it is easy to meet another travellers either you are a solo traveller or a group or even a couple. The breakfast...

“If you are looking for a quiet time you should pick a room with 4-6 beds. Otherwise join the party people and enjoy your staying in a room with 8-12 beds! You will be good in either ways!”
