This is not the best hostel that I have been, but the location is just perfect! It's few steps from Siqueira Campos subway station, and close to a nice area of Copacabana. It's possible to go walking for Ipanema, and Copacabana has a great area for food & shopping. The hostel is not a big deal, but not bad neither.... More

staff were unfriendly, breakfast was poor and the place was crowded, noisy and a bit dirty. I have stayed at dozens of hostels and I have no doubt in my mind this was the worst I have experienced. I feel obligated to note the location is great (a few blocks from the beach), but other hostels I've stayed in in... More

This hostel is close to the metro and the beach. There is a lot of restuarants in the neighboorhood and it is safe to walk around. The hostel offers a variety of guided toura which is worth the money. They also help a lot with transfers and suggestions

My first stop in South America was in Rio and I had booked in at El Misti House. Firstly, the directions I was given to find the place after getting off a bus from the airport were spot on. Found with no problems The hostel is secure - you need to buzz to get in. Which was a comforting start... More

This is a very social hostel. So if you want to party or you're a single traveller, you'll never end up alone in this hostel! Location is perfect, the beach is a 5min walk away and the subway is around the corner, so is the supermarket, flip flop store and many restaurants. Having a good sleep can be difficult, because...

The staff was very friendly, served a welcome drink in the evening and allowed to use the PCs and internet even during the time when I was no longer the guest in the hostel. The hotel is very well situated (metro, beach, bus to the airport) and the bathroom the closest to the room I occupied was clean. I liked... More

Rooms were small, but I had a good time been there. Close to the beach, to the metro station and also to the night life in Copacabana area. The hostel gives morning breakfast free and it is good enough.

The sleep quality and the room is terrible, no windows, smell bad, too hot, claustrophobic, no space betwen the ceiling and the bed and dirty. Have only 2 people in the hostel there´s polite, the rest is very poorly educated. The street is very tight and during the night don´t look safe, during the day is ok.
