When you charge $100 US per night I would expect certain things to work to stay in a hostel. Only 3 out of the 5 toilets were working during the World Cup, I was told I had to move rooms because a girl wanted to have her boyfriend in the same room after I had already stayed there for 5... More

The staff were very friendly! The hostel is in a great location right next to the underground, great for getting to Copacobana. The breakfast was amazing, great way to start the day. The only problem was the wifi was awful!

Right in the middle of Copacabana, Lapa, and Santa Teresa. Right next to the metro too with access to lots of bars and restaurants. Mariano, Clemente, Carolina, and the rest of the staff...awesome!!! Really good for the value, too.

The rooms here are way to small, 6 people but basically only one can enter at a time, no space for opening bags etc. The toilets are the worst feature. Each one only contains one toilet and shower leading to long waits each morning and evening. Wifi is also very poor. Good location and cheap enough during the world cup... More

Too expensive and too crwoded! Too many beds compared to the provided bath rooms and area to hang out. I never stayed in such an overcrowded place for such a price. The stuff was friendly though and compensated a little for the rest...

While this hostel was not the worst I have ever stayed at, it was far from the best. the staff was overall more concerned with their computers and cell phones than with travelers. There where times I came home at night and the one staff member/security was asleep with his cell phone in his hand. The rooms were musty and... More

I arrived to Misti Botafogo with the intentions of staying in Rio for 3-4 days... and have ended up staying for almost a month!
