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 loved this hostel! The price is really good for starters. It includes a wonderful breakfast with fresh fruit, yummy granola and freshly squeezed juice with the most delicious Brazilian fruits. The beds are really comfy, the staff is wonderful and it's s huge plus that almost all of them speak both Portuguese, Spanish and English. It's located in a... More

O hostel é muito bem localizado. Situa-se no centro do Rio de Janeiro e possui fácil acesso (próximo ao metrô e paradas de ônibus) a quaisquer pontos turísticos do Rio. São muitas acomodações por quarto (treliches!) e poucos banheiros para muita gente. Durante minha estadia, faltou água durante 2 dias. O atendimento não é dos melhores, mas possui um bom... More

The place was awful, the staff were useless, except for a man with blonde tips in his hair (sorry I didn't get his name!) he was friendly and seemed quite genuine, the others were lazy and untrustworthy. The room was disgusting for the price we paid. The bed was awful we didn't even get a sheet for the first night.... More

We stayed here for 7 nights during carnival. The hostel is located in a good area of Rio near to the sugar loaf mountain, a shopping mall, lots of restaurants and the subway is a 30 second walk away! The only thing that let's the hostel down is the small rooms and the three tier bunkbeds, plus the wifi can... More

Irene and I stayed at El Misti for two weeks and we had a brilliant time - the staff were super friendly and helpful and the Chef makes a wonderful Pizza. From the moment we arrived they all made us feel at home and we felt sad when we left, having met some wonderful friends there. The Hostel is in... More
