Hostel of the week…

POUSADA DO ATOBA is a family-owned hostel, located steps away from the lush beachside community of Santinho, on the lovely island of Florianopolis, Brazil. The hostel has comfortable, hotel-style rooms, complete with air conditioning, television, and full size bathrooms. The amenities include free Wi-Fi and Internet access, newly renovated pool, and a spacious lounge with a flat screen television. The complementary homemade breakfast is worth the price of accommodation in itself. Fresh fruit, coffee, breads, and juices surround a table with eggs, pastries, and an assortment of other delicious Brazilian foods. Additionally, POUSADA DO ATOBA has a prime location. The hostel is a short walk to beautiful Santinho Beach, where you will find yourself spending the days having fun in the sun. As night falls, the center of town is just minutes away, where you will find a lively atmosphere, with a bevy of shops and restaurants to satisfy your every need. Back at the hostel, you will find evenings a quite place where guests from all over the world are engaged in conversation. When it’s finally time to check-out, you will understand why the Ribeiro family motto for the pousada is, “Come as a guest, leave as a friend.”


1. The Ribeiro family. Enough said. Stay here and see for yourself.

2. We arrived in the early morning, before check-in, and immediately the Ribeiros made us comfortable. They offered us the complementary breakfast, even though technically we were not guests yet. At other hostels they make you wait until the following morning to receive your free breakfast.

3. We were late in checking out and the family went down to the local bus stop to hold the bus while we finished packing!
