UFSC (Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina / Federal University of Santa Catarina)
We are 3.2 km (1.9 mi) from UFSC. That is 6 minutes by car, 10 minutes by bike and about 10-15 minutes by bus. Times will vary by time of day and traffic. We’ve hosted quite a few students attending conferences and events at UFSC.

The beaches
We are located near Beira-Mar Avenue, the main avenue of the city and exit to most beaches. There are more than 40 beaches around the island. The closest beaches are Joaquina and Mole (around 13km). A bus line to TILAG (Terminal Lagoa da Conceição) stops 100m from the hostel and from TILAG you can transfer to the beach bus lines. Traffic during peak season (summer) can turn short distances into long journeys on the bus which is why we recommend going to the beaches north of the island – Praia do Forte, Jurere and Daniela – which is only 20km from the hostel or about 40 mins by bus. The south of the island has the most beautiful and lush beaches as well as amazing hikes and are about 24km from the hostel.

Downtown (Centro)
There are many buses in front of the hostel that will take you to most places in downtown including the main bus terminal TICEN (Terminal de Integração do Centro) and the Mercado Público. A taxi or Uber will be around 10-15 minutes depending on traffic and final destination in downtown.

You must be over the age of 18 to stay with us. 

Pets are not allowed.

A bath towel is provided, however, you cannot take it with you to the beach.

Smoking is not allowed inside the hostel and carries a R$100 fine. Smoking is not allowed inside the rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, lounge, or any shared space within the hostel.`
