We stayed there for 3 nights before NYE and enjoyed our time. It was not very clean, but not too dirty as well. We had a 4 bed dorm with AC, there were security lockers and the staff was nice! The breakfast was okay. Would come back!

Enjoyed a lovely relaxing few days here and actually booked an extra night as we liked it so much. The hostel is in a great location, a short walk from 3 beaches and 2 supermarkets and close to restaurants, walks and the lagoon. Transport links are excellent with a bus stop opposite where you catch buses that link to anywhere...

You're gonna meet beautiful people from everywhere. You're gonna stay at one of the most beautiful beach you ever saw. Lot's of music, party and friends! Relax and be young. Forget your watch forever. You'll never want to get back to your home.

We stayed at a few places on the island and kept coming back to Retro house! Bibi is lovely and they have an awesome mint plant for mojitos! Beaches, fresh food and cheap liquor nearby too :) I'd also recommend taking the walk to the big beach, I can't remember the name of it but Bibi knows the way!

Very nice place, clean and organized, with lovely staff! Located on the south of the Island, less than 10 minutes walk from the beach, with local commerce just on the side! I would recommend to everyone, from families to surfers and adventurers! One of the best hostels I've been!!

Fantastic beach, beautiful people, very good service and cheap! Very close to the beach Armação and Matadeiro in Florianopolis. Besides, of course, the friendly atmosphere of the hostel, the friendships you always do with people from all over the world. I'll at least once a year and would highly recommend!

Cool place & people, close to south beaches in Florianópolis, it's an option for travelers who prefers simple but cool places for visiting the island. Don't miss visiting Armação and Matadeiro beaches, some of the most preserved in Floripa.

I was meant to stay here for 2 days before heading to sao paolo but ended up staying 2 weeks. the hostel itself is a converted summer house and is small and compact. it's more of a relaxed vibe than the city or the north of the island. armacao is a small fishing village so it has a sleepy pace...

“The large double room at the front has a double and a single bed and a large balcony. Rooms at the back might be quieter as they are away from the road.”

“The rooms upstairs were privates (I think) and seemed to be VERY nice in comparison to the dorm rooms. Some have A/C, which I didn't know when we booked, so pay extra for that if you think you'll miss it. Also, if it's Carnaval, know that there will probably be noise wherever you are in the hostel!”
