El misti has a nice atmosphere, helpful staff and small communal area. Not that sociable/easy to meet people but it is situated in the centre of the main area, lots of bars and restaurants surround it so plenty to do! Beds aren't that comfy and get cold at night, bathrooms aren't too clean either but can't complain about the warm... More

Everything was excellent about this Hostel. Stayed here on the recommendation of a friend and it was great. We had a group of 6 female. Reception was super helpful, hey provide all sorts of practical services, even letting us store luggage after we needed to check out. Highly recommended, esp if you are on a budget. The dorms are clean... More

I stayed at El Misti Rooms in Rio, where I had a great experience so I wanted to try the El Misti in Ilha Grande as well. Although I had a reservation and arrived there early in the morning, they could not give me a bed till 7:30 in the evening. I was really tired and all I wanted was... More

This is honestly the worst place I have ever seen. As soon as I entered the hostel I was met with a rude man working behind the desk, who wouldn't even lift it head to greet me. We were simply handed our forms and not one welcoming word was spoken to us. We were brought to our room and immediately... More

This was vile, rooms were so dirty with bugs on the beds and staff were rude and unhelpful. Receptionist told us on two occasions a bed was free so we put our bedding on and returned to the room and on both occasions our bedding had been chucked off by someone. I didn't meet on person whilst I was there... More

Having stayed in many hostels, good and bad, I can honestly say that this one takes the prize for the worst. Filthy room, terrible service (2 hour wait to check in), bare wires hanging out including in the showers, blood on the mattress and dogs coming in from the street... Although there isn't much choice of accommodation in Ilha Grande,... More

I've been traveling a lot and I mainly stay in hostels (often cheaper than this one by the way) so I know what kind of basic comfort I should expect. But this El Misti Suites is one of the top 3 of the worst I've seen. Rats in the walls you can hear fighting all night long, dirty bed linen... More

I only stayed at the El Misti for one night, but I wished I could have stayed longer. Very friendly people (both personnel as people staying at the Hostel), nice atmosphere. Liked the hostel as soon as walked in. Rooms were nice and breakfast delicious. I hope I get to back there one day.
