Comfortable and well located place. Perfect to rest. The staff makes you feel like home. Despite unpleasent adventure, they helped us a lot and did their best that our stay was still nice. And our memories from Floripa now are great. Kitchen could be cleaner, but still one of the best places we've stayed in the whole South America. Cheers... More

I booked a room a while in advance at the Sunhouse Backpackes hostel in Florianopolis. The day before, I sent them a message asking what time was check in. An hour later they responded saying that the room has already been booked and is no longer available. I responded "WHAT?." They said it was a staff error. I think this... More

The hostel is the equivalent if a family run guest house. It's spotless, welcoming, quiet and has everything you need. Whilst there's a great atmosphere it's not a party place - the town is packed with bars though so plenty of places to go out and nicer to have a comfy, quiet bed to come home to. Only downside was...

Sunhouse is located in the quiet section of Lagoa; yet 5-10 min. walking distance to shops/bars/restaurants. Parking available in front. The atmosphere in the hostel is very amicable and reverent - everybody was so helpful. The manager(s) provide great advice on where to eat, hang out, surf etc. - the hostel also organizes local activities such as trekking, etc. Good... More

After turning up at the hostel we had originally booked and being disappointed enough to leave and search for something better, we found this hidden gem. The owner grew up in the neighbourhood and being a traveller himself, knows exactly how a hostel should be run. The rooms and common areas are impeccable. The environment is extremely friendly, we felt... More
