We didnt like this hostel specifically because they dont allow anyone else to come in if theyre not staying in the hostel. We met people in the island and wanted to hang out with them inside, and they werent allowed in. Also, a couple of staff members were very rude. Bed sheets grossed me out a little, they should buy...

The good stuff : Firstly, the breakfast here was outstanding - probably the best I've encountered after 18 months backpacking in Latin America, location is great, nice little social hostel and easy to meet people. Helpful staff. The bad stuff : Three triple bunks in a tiny room was just way too cramped. There were 4 lockers for 9 people.... More

Our originally four nights stay became five since we liked it so much. The cozy common room is a perfect place for spending time and meeting new people, both during day and night. The five bed room that we stayed in during our first nights was fresh and comfortable. El mistis international staff is really friendly and eager to help... More

Stayed there for 2 days and it was amazing. For what I paid for it was worthed, the staff were nice and breakfast was awesome. For such a small island the hostel offers many activities and attractions, incredible. I was also informed upon my arrival that the island itself sometime has resources failures such as black out or water shortage... More

Great breakfast but bad ugly dorms! The toilets are often stuck and there is only one shower every 9 people dorm so, it can be very busy when everyone is back after the beach and wants to take a shower. However, it's a good place to meet people and enjoy the island. They also organize dinners and bbq for fair... More

The person below me hit it spot on. This place is just terrible. We had an upstairs room which is terrible too. Avoid this place if you can afford to spend 40 more reals! Trust me, it is worth it!!!! O bathrooms are never clean and the staff gets aggravated when you ask them a simple question.

The proposal of a hostel is to be simple, I know, but El Mist is much less than that. I did my reservation with a friend, together, but when we arrived there they put us in different bedrooms and we could not change. The upstairs rooms are better than the downstairs. In the upstairs rooms there are compartments that you... More

The rooms are wet and without air conditioner; the beds are unconfortable. positiv point : The breakfast is realy cool and the staff is friendly; and it is well placed in vila abraao (the city), really good restaurant front of the hotel. But for a romantic week-end, choose something better !
