A very nice place, a bit old and not the best standard on the rooms etc. But the price is good and the staff is always friendly and make their best to make you feel comfortable (clean all the time, talk to you and so on) so it makes up to that. Breakfast is perfect and the guys who cooks... More

Great atmosphere and common area. Administration was a bit slow but the staff were all very friendly. Great breakfast, dinners were good but took at least an hour longer than advertised. The dorms weren't nice, but you're really only in there to sleep.

My experience staying at El Misti was incredible from the moment we checked in. We got a discount since we came from other el misti in Rio De Janeiro. They have this program called 'next destination'. The staff were nice, helpful and fun. We met other guests from different parts of the world. The hostel is a but old, but... More

I stayed at the El Misti Hostel during January 2015 High Season. The following is based solely on my experience. I’m sure that every experience is different. Pros: -Super friendly staff -A lot of young people in their 20’s from all over the world, all with an appetite for partying. Nightly parties at the hotel bar. -Breakfast is included and... More

When we arrived there was no running water from the taps or in the shower. Then there was a power cut, this happens all the time apparently, so most places were only off for 5 minutes before their own generators were turned on to provide power again. The hostel didn't have a generator. We then wanted to get our bedding... More

Couple of the staff were really friendly and helpful and the breakfast was quite good but don't expect to have a shower. When the water did work hardly any water came out, and of course it was cold. Oh and the bathroom light sensors that only turn the light on for 3 seconds are fun... Kitchen is also crap. Having... More

The people and staff were very nice but everything else about the place was about to break apart. The wifi never worked, there was only one electric plug that worked in the entire room, no light in the bathroom or shower (we used emergency light ) and people were falling from there bed at night! (No joke) at least they... More

We came to Ilha Grande during a storm. Came to the hostel and we got to know we didn't have any electricity in our room. The next morning we didn't have water either. Our room lit up with a candle and we got to flush the toilet with a bucket of water. It was a terrible week. The staff was... More

Illha Grande is beautiful (aside from the stray dogs) the island itself is nothing short of breathtaking - if you're short on cash and at the end of your budget, i'd recommend staying here, it's not the cleanest by any stretch of the imagination, or really suitable for couples, but as far as a £10 or less hostel a night,...
