There are few good points about Misti Botafogo: first and the main, location is simply great. Close to everywhere and area is pretty safe. It's quite 'moving' hostel, they have a bar with nice cheap drinks and at some evenings there were activities like pizza-party or smth. People are nice. But it's not really clean (sometimes even very unclean)) and... More

Its located at a great place and easily accesible by metro. I traveled alone Rio de Janeiro but i returned after making many new friends and with many sweet memories. Spending time at El Misty was my best time ever. The people at receptiom are awesome and the Barman Daniel is the best guy one could imagine in Rio ;)

Very nice people, great location (near the metro, bus station) in a non-dangerous area (Botafogo). The wifi could be better and the restrooms were not that clean all the time, but for the price it worth it. Definetly would stay there again. Great breakfast!

I really enjoyed staying at this hostel. It is very conveniently located being close to the Metro station and the Botafogo shopping centre. Everything was a walking distance.The hostel was worth the value. I stayed in a 3 bunk bed room. The receptionists were nice especially Juan Millan. He was always so happy and friendly to everyone.

It's a hostel, and a hostel for many people, so your expectations should consider that. One point is that this place will suit better party/laid back people. Positive: 1-Staff nice and helpful in an informal way 2- as clean as possible considering quantity of people in 3- good location, near the metro, many bus lines, bars, restaurants, a mall, banks,...

This hostel would be the one with the best location in the neighbourhood. At walking distance from both the metro and the beach. With a few choices of restaurants and juice parlours in the vicinity. It can be quite noisy if you're staying by the courtyard though. Or else this hostel is located in a one way alley which makes... More
