I am looking for budget hotel/hostel recommendations in the Florianopolis, Brazil area from December 27th, 2006 to around January 8th, 2007. I will be traveling from BA through Uruguay up to the Floripa area. I have had trouble finding any hostels, and want to make sure that there will be availibilty during the holiday season.
I don't know any specific hostel, but have you tried regular sites for hostels? I don't know if I'm allowed to put a website here, but I use www.hostelworld.com a lot.
there are none...When than it must be really crap.
Forget Florianopolis in that time of the year anyway as it is CROWDED!. Any time of the year except jan and feb it is a great place (with july - oct not for a beachholiday as it is winter)
We have a pousada near Florianopolis and we are already fully booked since 2 months for the period around newyearseve!!
[ Edit: sorry, no promos in the forum please. ]
Florianópolis can be great if you choose the right place to stay. You might expect crowds from Xmas til Carnaval but in the south part of the island it is not a nightmare.
