Well it's very to describe my Experience at The Search House ! incredible and unforgettable! You just have to go and enjoy this wondeful place ! Thanks a lot to the staff for everything !




I volunteered at The Search for a month and it was awesome experience.The place is incredible, great atmosphere,excellent guests. Felipe and Maria are super cool and also all staff which made my time there more special. The tasks are flexible and easy to do and they organize shifts in advance so you know ahead when you are working or off. Then, you have a lot of freetime to explore the Island. The hostel always has cool people coming through. This is the place to work if you want to be in beautiful surroundings and meet interesting people.
Thanks for the hosting, guys. I really felt like home




Best hostal that I’ve stayed after one year and half travelling! It’s not only because it’s in the amazing island of florianopolis that I’m in love of it, but it’s because of the people that you are going to meet there 💕
Since the first day I felt like being part of the family staff, feeling confident and lovely. Definitely I will repeat my trip over and over again!
I already want to come back there, and I just left! So, I guess that I don’t have to say that I totally recommend this hostel with their amazing people ❤️




The Search House is the most incredible hostel that I ever been in my life! Seriously, the place is unbelievable. The best structure, best parties, best staff/boss, best parties, best view, best vibe in the island! And the schedule for work is organized and fair. I will definitely come back! Love you guys :)




The Search House is amazing, the structure is incredible, the location even better. The garden ends at the beach. Best choice I've ever made. I learned a lot, changed many experiences and met many nice people.
