We run a beach hostel in Florianopolis and look for nice people to join us and help us with some tasks.
Located just 2 blocks from the beach, our hostel is a family run business with a cozy and friendly environment so we like to have around people who share the same care for the place as a big family.
We require at least 4 weeks stay. Please make sure to mention the date you are planning to come so we can check if it’s possible to host you.

ABOUT THE ISLAND:
Florianopolis is one of the most beautifull islands in Brazil surrounded by lakes, dunes, native forests and dozens of idyllic beaches. There are lots of outdoor activities here like surfing, hiking, soccer, capoeira, beach volleyball, beach tennis... You can also just chill in one of the many beaches around or explore the urban side of the island. Believe me, you’ll fall in love with this place and will never get bored.
