The uncleanest hostel I've ever seen. There are too many people at the reception (3 persons at the same time hardly doing anything), but nobody takes care of cleaning. A good breakfast. Very close to the Copacabane beach. The staff is very friendly, everyone speaks English very well. The facilities (for instance the kitchen) are old and need to be... More

We stayed here for 1 week, the location is perfect only a short walk to the beach. The staff are great especially Rene, Chris on the bar and the cook, so friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is probably the best we have had in South America, especially for how cheap the rates are here. Would 100% recommend this hostel! Oh... More

Highly recommended. Great location, safe area and close to the beach. Good breakfast in terms quality-price and also you have the chance for 18 R to enjoy and have amazing dinner in a really cool atmosphere. Just highlight the attention of the staff, I could say is the best part of the hostel. The guys in reception Renzo, Rene, Cris..all... More

el misti was recommended to me by a few people for its chilled out friendly atmosphere and it didn't disappoint. i stayed there over the new years period and there was always something to do, either tours or great nights out organised by the staff. the breakfast was fantastic with plenty of fruit and loads of other things to choose...

Friendly hostel in Copacabana. Great location close to the beach, just don't walk alone in the area at night. Slept in the room next to the reception, got a little noisy but other than that the accomodation was decent. Most of the nights you could eat with everyone at the hostel which was cheap and a great way to meet... More

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
