The hostel is a very tranquil place with a great energy. My host Luis Gustavo was incredibly welcoming and knows a huge amount about the area, showing me all over the place from Piçarras to Florianopolis - and all the beaches in between! Thank you so much Luiz and best of luck for the future :D

Jack was a pleasure to have you here as a volunteer, thank you for everything brother and your allsome company in all trips ! We made a very good times here on AymuraY Magic Hostel ! Take care and have a nice travel arround Brasil ! ;D



Hey !! I came at the hostel for a month, that was an awesome experience ! Of course this is a very good way to learn portuguese the right and fun way, but that was also interesting to see another part of brazil, far from Sao Paulo big cities or touristic places. As it is located very close to the beach its very good to have a sim right after a bit of work, or just chillout sometimes ! for more adventure there is a huge attraction park the beto carrero world at 5 min walk, dont miss it !!! Luiz the host is very nice and will help you for anything you need just go there !

Gratitude is the correct word to describe Tancred, thank you, my friend, you and your warmheart family are allways welcome here. See ya brother !



It's unfair if I say that I have "lost" a month of my summer vacation on the hostel. During the time I was over there, I saw the host doing the impossible to make me feel part of the family. I met people from everywhere (from Brazil, mainly) and had experiences which would not have been possible if I were a simple tourist. For those interested in knowing Santa Catarina and make a few friends, I recommend it. My memories of the hostel will be guarded in a special place inside me (my first experience in Worldpackers!) Go and meet this incredible place!
